Take care for super shots!

Cactus Man, Amazon

  • Summary: I had researched Canon lenses. Have a 50 mm f 1.18 and love it, but needed more wide angle. Bought a 28mm f2.8 and it was ok. Lots of Glamor Shots type of pictures, not very sharp and it struggled in low light. I was leaning toard the 24-70 L zoom, but wanted the most crisp, sharp, low-light wide angle I could find, so I took a chance on 24 mm L 1.4. I thought I'd made a mistake at first,lots of muddy photos, but an occassional good one made me keep trying.

A+ from Mark Gardner Photography

  • Summary: The 24mm f1.4 is a must have lens for your camera bag. Whether you are a landscape, commercial, or wedding photographer you'll find your self going back to "old faithful" more and more. It is extremely well built and performs excellent in low light, and is extremely fast focusing.

Dreamy Lens

D. Liang, Amazon
23 December 2008
  • Summary: This lens is my personal favorite. For general photography, I'll walk out with this lens mounted and a 100mm in the bag for occasional long shots. I find little use for my zoom (17-40mm) when I've got the two lenses. The 24mm is very heavy, but the small dimensions make for good maneuverability. The main point of this review, is that this lens can shoot f1.4 at 24mm, which is a unique class. At f1.4: Center sharpness is good, soft at the edges.

Shoot Wide-Angle? This is it.

Terrance M. Carroll, Amazon
23 December 2008
  • Summary: This is a specialty lens that would be hard to justify unless you are a dedicated wide-angle shooter. Have you been hanging out almost exclusively at the wide side of your zoom lens? Have you found that there is just something indescribably perfect about how the 24mm setting (on a full-frame camera) takes in the world? Have you never owned a true professional lens? Are you ready for the real thing? This is it.

Amazing lens!!!

Roberto Badillo, Amazon
23 December 2008
  • Summary: This is one of the first lens I bought after I got my XTI. At first it was a little hard focusing with the shallow DOF. But, once you get it down, this thing gives you beautiful images. The bokeh is like butter and the the colors and rich and deep. This is a lens that's worth every penny. If you are either working with a crop sensor or full frame, this is one of your best choices.

Great Lens

John, Amazon
23 December 2008
  • Summary: Let me start off by saying that photography is my hobby and it is not what I do to make a living. I have a canon 30d and use this lens all the time. I have several lenses in my bag now and this is one of my favorites! The first lens I purchased was EF 24-105 f/4 L IS. This is a great lens if you are outdoors in good lighting and want to have zoom capabilities.
