Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lens.... loving it... I went to calibrate AF and it was dead-on... no adjustments necessary. I am getting all the almost unbelievable claims made in advertising. Not using a flash and taking hand held night shots that are clear edge to edge and little flaring. Day shots are clear and flat and using 5D2 with built in lens compensation for vignetting, etc. but not noting anything. I show the photos to friends and their jaw drops. What else can I say? Focus is smooth, accurate in AF though I did mess up some night photos that I couldn't get a good long distance AF lock and so set to infinity... later determined out of focus. My own technical fault. No issues to report I am very happy with this lens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easily bests the previous version in every way I had to send the first copy back because of back focus problems. I have never had a quality control issue with any of the dozen L lenses I have owned and used so I was very surprised to find the 24L II not living up to my expectations. The second copy performed flawlessly! This lens is better than the original 24L in every way: center and edge sharpness, chromatic aberration, smoother bokeh, weather seals, nicer build quality. It performs at least as good as my 35L. I highly recommend testing your copy first or buy from a dealer with a no hassle exchange/return policy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Lens Is Worth Every Penny! I have been researching this lens for quit some time. I have seen many sample photos on the photography forums. The reason I decided to buy this lens was because of the versatility and sharpness of each shot. The auto focus is very fast and consistant. The colors straight out of the camera are very vibrant and need only minor adjustment in post processing. I am very happy with this lens and would recommend it to any professional or even enthusiast photographer. You definetly get your money's worth with the 24L II lens!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 24mm 1.4L 11 USM The lens I got was unusable at 1.4 to get a decent quality had to close down two stops. This now is the third time in one year I have returned L glass for sharpness issues. If you are a serious Pro I would advise never buying a high quality lens on line. Not that the vendors are bad, but you will not know what you get. Then you are faced with fees for restocking and shipping at you expense. Not all lenses are equal and seems like this is a new thing with Canon, As I have not returned or had a bad lens in the past ten years. Now three. So BEWARE JUST CAUSE IT HAS A L ON IT IT DOES NOT MAKE IT GOOD MINE WERE REAL DOGS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My intended use is for underwater photography. I recently purchased the new D5 Mark II Canon camera. My intentions are to replace my current Canon camera with the net D5 for my underwater photography. Last week I purchased the Canon EF 24mm f/1.4L II USM lens to use in an Ikelite housing with dual DS160 Ikelite strobes. Over the last few days I have taken lots of images with the new D5 and the new EF 24mm lens. I love the lens and think that I have made a great purchase. The lens will focus as close as about 9 inches which is important in underwater photography. My images are clear and sharp. Don't kid yourself by "settling" for a cheaper lens as the higher cost is worth the money, assuming the quality of your images are important to you. I would recommend this lens for any wide angle close focus use in underwater photography.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lens I've had the opportunity to shoot with both the 24L and 24Lii. Although the heftier price tag may give reason for pause initially, the fantastic results you get with this lens will instantly erase all doubts. (That is unless you get a bad copy like one of the reviewers above.) The focus is very accurate. My images are quite sharp wide open @ f/1.4. Overall, I can really see and feel the improvements from its predecessor. If you're looking for a fast 24mm, and have the budget for this lens, you will not regret it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great lens I've been a professional photojournalist for almost 30 years and this lens is so much fun to use. The 1.4 aperture makes almost anything you shoot look really cool in an abstract way, although with the sharp drop-off of the depth-of-field, you have to be very careful what you are focused on, especially if there's a person involved. I like to use it particularly with still life photos, such as landscapes or food. I use 5D camera bodies and the images are super sharp with great resolution from this lens.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from AF Issues I am using this lens with my 5D Mark II. There are AF issues with the lens out of the box. Probably 80% of my images missed focus. I have the precision screen- so I can see the AF locks at regions that are not correct- even at high contrast regions (e.g. keyboard) This is a bit fustrating because when I use manual focus- the lens is amazing. I own the 35 1.4L, which did not have this problem. The issue is not backfocus or frontal focus problems- I cant never know! It just misses most of the time and hit some of the time. I sent it back for repairs- will update.
