Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L II USM Lens Gets Gold Award at DPReview

DPReview completed their Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L II USM lens review and this great lens achieved an impressive 91% overall score and Gold Award from the experts at DPReview.

From DPReview Conclusion:

The 35mm F1.4L II USM is a fantastic lens from Canon. Ultra-sharp and impressively free of aberrations at all apertures and across the frame, it tops the class. Exceptional build quality raises the bar still further, but it all comes at a cost. Much cheaper rivals also offer great image quality, some with image stabilization too, but when only the best will do, the Canon 35mm F1.4L USM Mark II stands alone.

Pros:

  • Very, very sharp, best in class
  • Outstanding performance from F1.4, right across the frame
  • Aberrations well controlled. BR Optics layer works well at reducing both later and axial CA (purple/green fringing)
  • High resistance to flare
  • Attractive bokeh, with 18-pointed stars from specula highlights
  • Very efficient AF – fast, quiet, unfailingly accurate
  • Military-grade build quality, now weather-resistant

Cons

  • Large and heavy compared to rivals
  • No image stabilization
  • Expensive

This Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L II USM lens is currently on sale ($150 off) for $1,649 at Amazon, B&H, Adorama.
