The Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L II boasts high quality with a fast maximum aperture that is perfect for low depth-of-field portraiture and still life work while being just wide enough for stunning landscapes, cityscapes, and street photography. Here are some of the other standout features of this L-series prime:
- Blue Spectrum Refractive Optics, which refract shorter wavelengths of the visible spectrum (blue light) in order to significantly reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing and also allow for better low-light results.
- Fast f/1.4 maximum aperture.
- Fast, precise, and quiet autofocus performance with full-time manual focus override.
- Tight seal structure for use in bad weather.
The Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L II can be paired with both full frame and crop frame sensor cameras. It is the perfect focal length for capturing both portraits and scenery with just one lens, making it a popular prime. It is also a great choice for night sky shooting.
