Canon EF 24mm f/1.4L USM review by lextalionis
Review Date: 7/22/2008 Would you recommend the product? Yes | Total Spent: $1,170.00| Rating: 10 

 
Pros: On a full-frame body, this is a wonderful landscape lens.
Cons: None!

Very very sharp and wonderful colors...1.4 sharpness is incredible and I couldn't notice any distortion.


Here are some sample shots taken with a Canon EOS 5D

Canon EF 24mm f/1.4L USM review by Tomti75
Review Date: 12/5/2006 Would you recommend the product? Yes | Total Spent: None indicated| Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Very fast wide angle, build quality
Cons: You have to pay the price for its qualities...

I had the opportunity to try this lens when looking for a fast normal prime for my 350D (Rebel XT).


I didn't intend to buy it because of the price, but also because using it on a crop body was paying the price and weight for a very fast wide angle lens, whereas I would use it like a ~40mm, that should be light, cheap and easy to design...


Basically, I've been really impressed by the L build quality and feeling.


The contrast and colors were really great, sharpness was just good at 1.4 but got much better past f:2


This lens really makes sense on a full frame body and is not really exciting on a crop body, but the cropped part I saw was realy good...
