Overview

Description by Canon:
 
LENS DISCONTINUED (replaced by EF 24mm f/1.4 L II USM )
 
Thanks to the floating construction, excellent corner-to-corner delineation is obtained from 25 cm to infinity

Professional wide-angle lens with an ultra-large maximum aperture of f/1.4.
This is the first EF lens to employ both a replicated aspherical lens element to suppress distortion and spherical aberration, and a UD lens element to correct lateral chromatic aberration. Thanks to the floating construction, excellent comer-to-corner delineation is attained from 25 cm to infinity.

Reviews

"Released back in 1997 the Canon EF 24mm f/1.4 USM L is one of many ultra fast fix focals in the Canon lens line-up - seems as if Canon is really enjoying to go to the max in this niche. Regarding its release date it is obviously a full frame lens. On APS-C DSLRs it has a field-of-view equivalent to a classic ~38mm

"The Canon EF 24mm f/1.4 L USM Lens is soft wide open, increasing in sharpness until very sharp at f/2.8. Corners are somewhat soft until stopped down some - becoming very sharp for a 24mm lens. Light fall-off is very noticeable at f/1.4, and, as usual, improves as the lens was stopped down. The 24 L exhibits noticeable amounts of CA.
