The EF 35mm f/1.4L II USM L-series lens designed for professional photographers wanting to capture their world with a natural perspective and featuring new pioneering Canon-developed lens technology, Blue Spectrum Refractive (BR) optics.
For brilliant landscapes, portraits and close-up photography, look no further than the EF 35mm f/1.4L II USM. It helps provide a level of clarity and resolving power that can be an ideal complement to the latest generation of Canon’s high-resolution SLRs. With an effective focal length of 35mm on full-frame cameras and 56mm on APS-C cameras, it helps capture beautiful detail with minimal chromatic aberration and colour fringing thanks to Canon’s new BR optics element.
It also has a fast, 9-blade maximum aperture of f/1.4 for impressive performance in low-light conditions and beautiful, soft backgrounds. And, like other L-series lenses, the EF 35mm f/1.4L II USM has dust and water sealing. Versatile, speedy and elegant, the EF 35mm f/1.4L II USM will delight photographers looking for a bright, sharp and responsive lens for their most important images.
Offers a wide-angle view with a natural perspective
A classic, slightly wide-angle 35mm focal length, loved by documentary photographers for its ability to capture a subject within its environment without distorting perspective.
Superb low-light performance
A large f/1.4 maximum aperture lets in two stops more light than an f/2.8 zoom lens, making this an ideal lens for hand-held photography in low-light conditions.Shooting at wide apertures allows photographers to limit depth of field. Creating such shallow-focus effects is one way that a subject can be made to stand out against a background, and is particularly effective when combined with the lens's wide-angle field of view. The lens's nine-bladed aperture renders out-of-focus areas smoothly and naturally.
Sets new standards in image quality
Blue Spectrum Refractive optics, made from an organic optical material developed by Canon, tackle colour fringing by correcting chromatic aberrations to a degree not previously possible.Ultra Low-Dispersion (UD) optics and two aspherical lens elements provide incredible sharpness right across the frame - even when the lens is used wide open.Subwavelength structure coating boosts contrast and guards against flare and ghosting when shooting into the light.
Focuses quickly and discreetly, letting you capture the unexpected
Ring-type USM autofocus establishes accurate focus quickly and in near silence, letting you work without disturbing the scene.Full-time manual focusing allows focus adjustments without changing focus mode or removing your camera from your eye.
Keep shooting even in tough conditions
Canon's legendary L-series build-quality inspires confidence and adds durability. Weather sealing guards against dust and moisture, while a fluorine coating protects the lens's front and rear element from grease and dirt, and makes it easier to clean.
Blue Spectrum Refractive optics
Canon developed Blue Spectrum Refractive (BR) optics to tackle coloured fringing in large-diameter lenses. This bespoke organic optical material is more effective at correcting such fringing than other technologies, like fluorite, Ultra Low-Dispersion (UD) or Super UD glass. Coloured fringing is caused by chromatic aberration - a phenomenon where light of different colours is focused at different points. Using BR optical material in the EF 35mm f/1.4L II USM minimises this effect. Other elements in the lens can then be optimised to give superb sharpness, contrast and resistance to flare.
