We Love

  • It's an easy one, but the L in the name is always a sign of fantastic build
  • Classic focal length combined with new technology (Blue Spectrum Refractive optics) for particularly outstanding image quality
  • Low aperture lenses give you good bokeh and are stronger performers in low light conditions - f/1.4 means those boxes are ticked.
Reasons to buy from Park Cameras

Full Details

A true modern classic: standard wide-angle lens beloved by reportage photographers for its natural perspective, low-light capability and extraordinary optical performance.

wide-angle view with 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 wide-angle view with natural perspective

classic, slightly wide-angle 35mm focal length, loved by documentary photographers for its ability to capture subject within its environment without distorting perspective.

Superb low-light performance

large f/1.4 maximum aperture lets in two stops more light than in f/.8 zoom lens, making this ideal lens for hand-held photography in low-light conditions.

shooting at wide apertures allows photographers to limit depth of field. Creating such shallow-focus effects is one way that subject can be made to stand out against 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 res smoothly and naturally.

Sets new standards in image quality

Blue spectrum Refractive optics, made from in organic optical material developed by Canon, tackle colour fringing by correcting chromatic aberrations to degree not previously possible.

Ultra Low-Dispersion (UD) optics and two spherical lens elements provide incredible sharpness cross the frame - even when the lens is used wide open.

Sub-wavelength 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 inner 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 fluorine coating protects the lens's front and rear element from grease and dirt, and makes it easier to clean.

Blue spectrum Refractive optics

Canon developed Blue spectrum Refractive (BR) optics to tackle coloured fringing in large-diameter lenses. This bespoke organic optical material is more effective at correcting such fringing than other technologies , like fluorite, Ultra Low-Dispersion (UD) or super UD glass. Coloured fringing is caused by chromatic aberration - phenomenon where light of different colours is focused at different points. Using BR optical material in the EF 35mm f/1.4L USM minimises this effect. Other elements in the lens can then be optimised to give superb Sharpness, contrast and resistance to flare.

Looking to sell your Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L II USM Wide Angle Lens?

Our Verdict

A Mark II of anything is usually a very positive thing, the first version was obviously good enough to release an updated version! This is very much the case for the Canon EF 35mm f/1.4 L II USM lens, building on the original by adding new technology aimed at reducing chromatic abberations, and all geared towards helping you make the most of your photos.

Here at Park camera s we had a go on a pre-production version and can confirm that - combined with the 5D Mark III - the image quality was super sharp, its low light performance strong and the detail produced was exceptional.
