Canon has finally announced the long-rumored update to one of the most popula
Canon has finally announced the long-rumored update to one of the most popular primes in the EF lens lineup, and it brings with it a completely re-developed optical design to complement the new reign of high-resolution EOS DSLRs. The EF 35mm f/1.4L II USM offers the natural wide-angle perspective favored by many journalistic photographers, along with the fast f/1.4 maximum aperture for enhanced low-light performance and selective focus control. Suitable for more than just reportage imaging, the 35mm focal length is one of the most versatile lenses to suit portraiture, landscape, and even close-up subjects; and as an L-series optic, its weather-sealed construction benefits working in harsh environments. The re-formulated lens design, comprising 14 elements in 11 groups, incorporates one of Canon’s newly developed Blue Spectrum Refractive (BR) elements, which is poised to deliver increased clarity by significantly reducing chromatic aberrations and color fringing. Two aspherical elements and one UD (Ultra Low Dispersion) element are also integrated into the lens design, and further help to control distortions and aberrations for consistent sharpness and even illumination. Individual elements feature a Subwavelength Coating (SWC), too, to minimize lens flare and ghosting, and fluorine coatings on the front and rear lens surfaces protect the optics from fingerprints and smudging. This version II of the 35mm f/1.4L again features smooth, quiet, and fast AF performance, thanks to an Ultrasonic Motor (USM), which also offers full-time manual focus control by simply rotating the focus ring at any time. The nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing out-of-focus quality with shallow-depth-of-field imagery, and an improved minimum focusing distance of 11″ with a 0.21x maximum magnification allows you to more effectively photograph close-up subjects. While designed for full-frame EOS DSLRs, this lens can also be used on APS-C models where it will provide a 56mm equivalent focal length.
