Sample Images

Fast aperture and swift focussing

The EF 35mm f/1.4L USM has a maximum aperture many stops faster than that found on a standard zoom lens, allowing a photographer to keep shooting hand-held when light levels begin to fall. An ultrasonic motor (USM) enables extremely fast focusing in near silence, and a floating lens element means consistent sharpness throughout the focusing range.

Aspheric lens element

Thanks to an aspherical lens element, the EF 35mm f/1.4L USM produces images that are distortion corrected. Consistent image quality all over the frame is ensured.

Super Spectra coating

Super Spectra coatings ensure accurate colour balance and enhance contrast. They also reduce flare and ghosting – a common problem caused by light bouncing off a camera's sensor.

L-series quality

The L-series is Canon's flagship professional lens range, representing the best in precision-designed EF optics. L-series lenses combine superior performance with superlative handling, and are resistant to dust and moisture.

Integration with E-TTL II flash metering

The lens passes distance information back to a compatible EOS camera's E-TTL II flash system to ensure optimal flash metering.

Accessories

The lens comes supplied with a lens hood and a soft case.
