REVIEW: Canon 35mm f/1.4 L USM

2 November 2009
  • Conclusion: The build quality and heritage of his lens is unquestionable and for full frame sensors or 35mm, it is still in the top flight. As a standard prime on a cropped sensor dSLR it will do a good job, but might just be out-performed by some of the younger opposition.
  • Pros: Excellent Build, Good low light performance, Consistent performance
  • Cons: Price, Starting to show its age.

  • Summary: Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L USM was supposed to be one of Canon's flagship lenses. It almost reaches that status, with outstanding performance on an APS-C camera, but falls a bit short on a full frame body. So where does this leave us?

  • Conclusion: The EF 35mm f/1.4 L lens has significantly better sharpness (resolution and MTF) from f/2 to f/4 than the EF 35mm f/2 lens. Corner sharpness is very good if stopped down. The EF 35mm f/1.4 L is an excellent fast lens for wide field astrophotography and performs optimally at f/2.8.

Canon EF 35mm f/1.4 USM L - Full Format Lab Test Report / Review

24 August 2010
  • Conclusion: The Canon EF 35mm f/1.4 USM L is certainly an impressive piece of engineering but it struggles a bit on full format DSLRs - at least technically. The center resolution is excellent straight from f/1.4 but the borders and extreme corners are soft here.

EF 35 mm f/1.4L USM

29 May 2009
  • Conclusion: Only the fact, that the cons list for a standard prime instrument, which costs 1240$, is five position long, should make you think twice. Two of these faults are possible to omit.
  • Cons: high vignetting on the APS-C sensor and simply monstrous on full frame,, significant coma,, the frame corner picture quality on full frame at the maximum relative aperture should have been better,, an element defect which passed the factory quality control,, an exorbitant price.

1 March 2013
  • Summary: to jasny, dobrze wykonany szerokokątny obiektyw o wzornictwie, do którego japońska firma zdążyła nas przyzwyczaić. Minusem może być brak uszczelnionej obudowy i delikatny luz na pierścieniu ustawiania ostrości.
  • Pros: + bardzo dobra jakość zdjęć na wszystkich przesłonach, + szybki autofokus, + osłona przeciwsłoneczna w zestawie, + plastyka obrazu na najniższych przesłonach
  • Cons: - nieuszczelniona obudowa, - luz na pierścieniu ustawiania ostrości, - aberracja chromatyczna, - winietowanie na f/1.4
