Canon EF 24mm f/1.4L USM Lens Review

SLR Lens and Camera Reviews

  • Summary: Canon EF 24mm f/1.4L USM is a solid wide angle prime that excels once stopped down to f/2.8 and beyond. The weakness in border performance at wide aperture levels should no longer surprise anyone - there are very few fast wide angle lenses that can showcase consistently high performance across the entire aperture range. Vignetting on full-frame body as well as somewhat high level of CA at wide apertures are things to be aware as well.

  • Conclusion: The EF 24mm f/1.4L lens offers generally excellent center of field lens sharpness from f/2 on and very acceptable performance at f/1.4 in image center if you need it. Edge performance is probably acceptable for most applications, especially if you can stop the lens down to f/8. This lens significantly outperforms the consumer EF 24mm f/2.8, but at a significantly higher price. The EF 24mm f/1.4L lens is an excellent lens.

Canon EF 24mm f/1.4 USM L - Review / Test Report

24 September 2008
  • Conclusion: If you're looking for a high performance lens the EF 24mm f/1.4 USM L may be an option but if you don´t need an ultra-large aperture it seems pointless to invest a magnitude more here.
