I know there is a long thread about the first version:

http://photography-on-the.net …7311&highlight=​canon+24mm

...but i would like to see samples and/or comparisons with the latest II version


I'm not really sure about the differences we can expect...

http://www.usa.canon.c​om …egoryid=151&mod​elid=17623 (external link)


Weights about 100gr. more than older version

It's now 13 elements in 10 groups

Is the closest focusing distance is really 3'' (!?)

I did a mini review on both of these lenses. The mark II version, compared with my samples of the mark I, are vastly superior.

Canon's newest fixed length L-series lens, the EF 24mm f/1.4L II USM, incorporates the newest in Canon lens technology for spectacular sharpness and impressive performance at all settings. It features two high-precision, large-diameter aspherical lenses for sharpness across the sensor, even in peripheral areas of full-frame sensors.

It also features two UD lens elements to minimize chromatic aberrations, incorporates rear-focusing, ultrasonic, quiet and high-speed AF with full-time manual override. A circular aperture provides beautiful out-of-focus detail and offers legendary dust- and water-resistant L-series construction using only lead-free glass.

• Focal Length & Maximum Aperture: 24mm 1:1.4
• Lens Construction: 13 elements in 10 groups
• Aspherical and UD lens elements for correction of chromatic aberration. (2 UD Lens Elements)
• Circular aperture for pleasing bokeh. (8 blades)
• Lead-free glass
• Diagonal Angle of View: 84°
• Focus Adjustment: Rear focusing system with USM
• Closest Focusing Distance: 3.0 in./77mm
• Maximum magnification: 0.17x
• Filter Size: 77mm

Canon EF 24mm f/1.4L USM II

I'm debating between the mk I and mk II. Since there's already a 24L mk I archive and the examples are OUTSTANDING...I guess I need convincing that the extra money for the mk II is worth it.:D

Let's see some pictures!

I just got mine last week and haven't had much of a chance to do much with it yet. Build quality and AF performance wise, it has been a nice upgrade so far.

I need to stay the hell out of this thread.... :lol:

seriously, one negative on the 24L II for me is it's size. I recently picked up a sigma 20mm and it's length is similar to the 24L II and it's enough longer than the 24L I don't like it's look/feel as much on that alone.... At least that's what I keep telling myself on the 24L II decision. :lol:

siggy 20mm and 24L II are both 3.4, the old 24L is 3.1... It's not much, but it's just different to me. I LOVE the compactness of my 5Dii with the 24L.

Yes.

It adds to the badassery of this thread, and I like it because I can see up close how thsi lens looks different from the original 24L.

Hoff, how are you fairing without your 24 & 35? Any plans to replace them?

Like the Inquisition, I never expected the price jump to mark II to be so brutal.

My excess income is tied to venture capital people spending money, which they are not doing at the moment, so I'm in a holding pattern for any big lenses. It has made me appreciate my 16-35/II even more, though. It is quite a cracker at 35mm & f/2.8. I've also gotten better at indoor bounce flash since I can't rely on the speed.
