  • Excerpt: I had been thinking about getting a 24mm lens for a while, and kept wondering if the non-L lens would be adequate, or if I should get the 17-35 2.8L zoom. Eventually Canon came out with the 24/1.4L, and answered the question for me.

  • Excerpt: The Canon EF 24mm f/1.4L II USM Lens is, without question, Canon's best-performing (optically and physically) and best-built 24mm autofocus lens. It is also Canon's widest angle lens with an aperture wider than f/2.8 - a full 2 stops wider than all wider angle Canon lenses.
