I had Higher Expectations

Sis, Amazon

  • Summary: I had my eye on this lens for about a month...Read EVERY stinkin review on the internet and how "tack sharp" it was so I made the plunge and dropped $1529.00 down for my first L lens and boy, what a disappointment!

Great Image Quality but Poor Autofocus

Sdiver2489, Canon
13 October 2011
  • Conclusion: I bought this lens as a 35mm equivalent lens on a crop camera. I loved the field of view offered by the lens and obviously the F1.4 aperture. The problem came entirely from the autofocus. I found it to be completely random in its ability to focus on objects.
  • Pros: Superior build quality, Super-sharp images
  • Cons: unreliable autofocus

bad af

  • Conclusion: AF often missed. Compared it to 85L, it's night and day. *%L of course is magical. AF Often breaks down. More things to say but everytime I submit this review, it doesn't get published. funny how my 85L review got published once I wrote them. This is my third time writing.

Returning my SECOND 24 f/1.4 II lens - Focus Issue

L to the T, Canon
15 August 2010
  • Conclusion: Not sure what's going on with this lens but I'm now mailing back my SECOND Canon 24 f/1.4L II because of focusing issues. I'm very surprised by the focusing issue found in two lenses which, in my opinion, can't possibly be coincidental.

24mm 1.4L 11 USM

MG, Canon
8 February 2009
  • Conclusion: The lens I got was unusable at 1.4 to get a decent quality had to close down two stops. This now is the third time in one year I have returned L glass for sharpness issues. If you are a serious Pro I would advise never buying a high quality lens on line.
  • Cons: Semi-sharp images
