This wide-angle, L-series prime from Canon is a wonderful choice for portraits, landscapes, and close-up photography. It has an f/1.4 maximum aperture, which makes it ideal for low-light conditions, and the nine rounded blades create beautiful bokeh when using selective focusing techniques.
Autofocus is fast, quiet, and accurate due to Canon’s Ultrasonic Motor. Still, if you need to control your focus, it’s easy with the full-time manual focus override. With 14 elements divided into 11 groups, this lens creates images with high contrast and color fidelity, even in the brightest light. It includes a Blue Spectrum Refractive Optics element, which refracts blue light to get rid of color fringing and chromatic aberrations. Two aspherical elements and one UD element take care of distortions. Each element has been coated with Canon’s Subwavelength Coating, which controls lens flare and ghosting.
The Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L II USM Lens has a minimum focusing distance of 11.02 inches, a 63° angle of view, a 0.21x maximum magnification, and takes 72 mm front filters. Extensive weather-sealing makes this lens perform in all kinds of conditions, including dust and rain. The front and rear elements are protected with fluorine, so you won’t have to worry about smudges or fingerprints.
