Used pretty much every Canon L Lens out there

Summary: Used pretty much every Canon L Lens out there. Aside from the 200mm f/2.0 I have to say this is my favorite lens. If you are into shooting prime. The lens is sharp sharp sharp. In full crop, it is sharper than my 50mm f/1.2 and 70-200mm f/2.8, or any lens I own. Even at wide open.
Summary: I've been using L series lenses for a couple of years now, ranging from the 17-40 f/4L to the 135mm f/2L. Currently, I own a Canon 5D Mark III, Canon 70D, 24-70mm f/2.8L Mark I, 135mm f/2L, and this 24mm f1.4L II. Primes, zooms, it doesn't matter, they are all pretty darn good.
Great lenses for astrophotography with stars as points of light

Summary: Great lenses for astrophotography with stars as points of light... I can take shots in true dark sky locations, on a night with no moon with an ISO 3200 at f/1.4 for 15 seconds and it is still a bit over exposed. I do have a bit of coma in the corners but is well controlled as is the vignetting.
The Canon 24mm is by far the best lens I’ve ever purchased

Summary: The Canon 24mm is by far the best lens I’ve ever purchased. If you are looking to get more into landscapes this is your lens. The glass on the L series is on point, and even for a used lens (something I’ve been hesitant in doing again) I was very pleased with the condition and quality.
Summary: This lens is gorgeous. It's my second prime L lens. My first was the 85 1.2 and it sold me on the idea of using primes almost exclusively. So I decided to get the widest prime I would use regularly. I shoot mainly portraits and weddings. I really love the 24mm focal length.
Summary: It's as well built and sharp as any Canon L lens; all I wanted to throw in here is the focusing performance in low light. It's great! Maybe not quite as fast as my 70-200, but then, I'm shooting at f/1.4 so that's a big challenge for any lens.
Summary: Great addition to my bag. I use it for unique angles at weddong ceremonies, those difficultly small hotel rooms for getting ready shots, compelling shots during portraits, and real estate/architectural photography. Do not limit yourself with this lens. It is more versital than many people think.
