Product Description

Canon EF 35mm f1.4L II USM Wide Angle Lens

  • A wide-angle view with a natural perspective
  • Superb low-light performance and depth of field control
  • Sets new standards in image quality
  • Focuses quickly and discreetly
  • Keep shooting even in tough conditions

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 the 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.

Understanding: Aperture

Aperture is the opening in a camera lens that controls how much light enters the camera. It's measured in f-stops like f/2.8 or f/8. Lower f-stop numbers mean wider openings, letting in more light and creating a shallow depth of field (blurry background). Higher f-stop numbers mean smaller openings, letting in less light and creating a larger depth of field (more of the scene in focus). Aperture also affects the quality of out-of-focus areas in the image (bokeh).

Understanding: Lens Types

Different lenses have different purposes to achieve different styles of images, some popular ones include:
Prime Lens: Fixed focal length, sharp images, great for portraits and dark settings.
Zoom Lens: Variable focal length, versatile for different shots and everyday use..
Wide-Angle Lens: Captures wide scenes like landscapes.
Telephoto Lens: Magnifies distant subjects, ideal for sports & wildlife.
Macro Lens: Perfect for close-up photography of small subjects.
Fisheye Lens: Ultra-wide perspective, creates unique images.

Understanding: Lens Mounts

Different camera brands use different lens mounts, which are like connectors that attach lenses to camera bodies. Each mount is specific to a particular brand and camera series. For example, Canon uses the EF and RF mounts, Nikon uses the F mount, Sony uses the E mount for its mirrorless cameras. These mounts dictate which lenses are compatible with which cameras. Some brands offer adapters to use lenses from other systems, but it's essential to ensure compatibility for proper functionality and autofocus performance.

Understanding: Manual and Autofocus

Manual focus and autofocus are two ways to adjust the sharpness of a camera lens. With manual focus, you turn a ring on the lens to bring the subject into focus yourself, giving you full control over what appears sharp in the image. Autofocus, on the other hand, relies on the camera's built-in technology to automatically adjust the focus for you, usually by detecting contrast or phase differences in the scene. Autofocus can be convenient, especially for fast-moving subjects or when you need to capture a quick shot, whereas manual focus allows for precise adjustments and creative control over the final image.
