Sharp Wide angle lens

Steve Stephen, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: Ive used this for some landscape and scenic photography in Norway. Slight vignetting, but not too much distortion, and very sharp. I recommend this for anyone who like prime lens and wants a wide angle option.

Essential Glass

Erik in ATL, B&H Photo
27 May 2014
  • Excerpt: I shoot with two 5D Camera bodies at weddings and this baby stays on one of the two bodies at all times. If you've never shot wide at a low aperture, you don't know what you're missing. This is the absolute best storytelling lens for weddings and serves me throughout an entire wedding day.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

A small space workhorse

NotAnselAdams, Canon
18 April 2014
  • Conclusion: This lens has served me well in small spaces for 3/4 and full-body portraits. It has allowed also for effective use of shalllow depth of field as a compositional element. Whether with natural light or strobes, this lens has not presented any sort of limitation in terms of framing or of photographic composition generally.
  • Pros: Fast auto-focus, Superior build quality, Super-sharp images

What a GEM!

Han, B&H Photo
1 April 2014
  • Excerpt: At first I didn't 24mm as a prime length, but as I got into photography more and more, I found out that 24mm is actually an ideal range for photography. I've finally decided to purchase this lens over 35mm, I am absolutely in love with it! f/1.4 at 24mm is very unique and outstanding! Lens construction is very solid. Do not hesistate to get this lens!!

Great Lens

Jay D. Anderson, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this lens because I am a painter (oil painter/Artist) and want to take reference photos. The lens fairly closely mimics the optical specifications of the human eye (~24mm) the Canon 5D allows me to counter some of the spherical aberration apparent on wide-angle lenses using its internal Digic4 processor (or you can counter all of it with Canon photo software.
