Canon EF 24 mm F/1.4 L II USM Lens

The Canon L II USM 24 mm is a good choice for photographers who want both a wide aperture and auto-focusing ability in a wide-angle camera lens. The f/1.4 aperture — the widest on any current Canon lens — is fast and quiet due to the high-speed CPU used in the Ring USM (Ultrasonic Motor) auto-focusing system. Manual focusing is also available at any time. The Canon L II USM is a high-performance lens for people who want professional results and images of the highest quality. It is a prime Canon camera lens compatible with all Canon cameras with the EF mounting. Ultra-low Dispersion glass elements in the lens help reduce chromatic aberrations, while Canon’s Subwavelength Structure Coating is applied to the inside surface of the lens to minimize flare and ghosting. This Canon camera lens is also constructed with Super Spectra coating for additional resistance to internal reflections. These special coatings combine to protect against light pollution and make sure any image captured is as clear as possible. Though the Canon L II USM is a sealed lens and is both dust and weather-proof, it requires a filter for complete sealing. This lens might be a good choice for those looking for a sharp and fast wide-angle camera lens that can produce quality images while providing the convenience of auto-focusing.

Being my first L class pro lens purchase, I spent the last nine months using it extensively. The two deciding factors for me on this lens were the aperture and focal length. I needed something that was fast, sharp and reliable regardless of the lighting conditions. I also needed enough room in my... Read full review »

Essentials Bundle for Canon EF 24mm f/1.4L II USM Lens with 3 (UV/CPL/ND8) Filters + Accessory Kit

Kit Includes 5 Items with all Manufacturer- supplied Accessories + Full USA Warranties: 1) Vivitar 3-Piece Multi-Coated HD Filter Set (77mm UV/CPL/ND8) 2) Precision Design 6-Piece Camera + Lens Cleaning Kit 3) Precision Design Spudz Microfiber Cleaning Cloth (with Clip + Case) 4) Precision Design Universal LCD Screen Protectors 5) CapKeeper 2 Vivitar Series 1 3-Piece Multi-Coated HD Pro Filter Set (77mm UV/CPL/ND8) High-quality, all-glass filters at an affordable price. This Vivitar Series 1 3-Piece Filter Set contains a variety of multi-coated glass filters that will optimize your photography experience, and protect your lenses from scratches and dust. Vivitar multi-coated lens filters are translucent glass placed in front of a camera lens to alter or adjust the light entering the camera and to protect the camera lens. Lens filters improve photographs by giving photographers control over light and allowing them to emphasize the features of a scene that they consider most important. This particular filter kit is a combination of the three filters no photographer should be without. Filters are one of the least expensive accessories you can use to make big changes in the way your pictures look. Includes filter storage wallet. Filters Included: Ultraviolet UV Filter Ultraviolet UV Filters are multi-purpose filters that absorb ultraviolet rays that often make outdoor photographs hazy and indistinct, and should be constantly fitted to a lens to provide improved clarity and color balance, as well as to provide protection to your lens. Circular Polarizing (CPL) Filter Circular Polarizing (CPL) Filters allow you to remove unwanted reflections from non-metallic surfaces such as water and glass, as well as improve color saturation, clarity and contrast. This threaded filter is often used to increase the contrast and saturation in blue skies and white clouds, for example. Polarizing filters do not affect the overall color balance of a shot, and they will provide protection for your lens while shooting. Neutral Density (ND) Filter Neutral Density filter reduces intensity of all wavelengths or colors of light equally, giving no changes in hue or color rendition. ND filters are particularly useful reducing depth of field in very bright light. ND8 allows 1/8 of available light into the lens (3 f-stops).

Canon EF 24mm f/1.4L II USM Lens (77mm)

Store Note: Discount Prices. Free Double Your Memory & Free Cleaning Kit

The Canon EF 24mm f/1.4L II USM Lens lens is a venerable wide-angle prime lens that provides sharpness and impressive performance at all settings. Its large maximum aperture of f/1.4 allows for superb low-light photographs, and its circular aperture and narrow depth of field provide pleasing background blur. It is the ideal tool for photojournalists, landscape and event photographers, and anyone who enjoys taking images from a wider perspective. This version inchIIinch improves greatly over its predecessor with the addition of two high-precision aspheric lenses, which correct aberration including curvature of field and distortion. Chromatic aberration common in wide-angle shooting is also reduced by the inclusion of two UD lenses, which ensure optimum image quality and corner-to-corner detail. The EF 24mm f/1.4L II USM features Canon's near-silent Ultra Sonic Motor (USM), which provides super-fast auto-focusing with full-time manual override. The floating internal focus system also helps maintain high image quality throughout the focal range. • SWC (Sub Wavelength Coating) The anti-reflective SWC (Sub Wavelength Coating) differs from conventional coatings by using a much finer structure, which minimizes ghosting and flaring across the lens surface, regardless of the angle with which light enters or exits. • Ring-Type USM Motor Canon's very best autofocusing mechanisms are in place, permitting full-time manual focusing override without requiring a switchover from AF to MF mode. • L-Series Canon's inchL-Seriesinch designation indicates that this lens meets their highest quality standards with excellent color reproduction and edge to edge sharpness.
