My in-depth review of the Canon EF 24mm f/1.4L II is now online in DAP (direct link for subscribers). I cover flare, distortion, vignetting, sharpness, bokeh, field curvature, as well as night shooting and how much to stop down. And there are lots of high-res examples.

Even if you already are one of the lucky few to own the 24/1.4L II, it’s likely you’ll find useful shooting tips in my review..
I have no hesitation in recommending the 24/1.4L II as a top-grade lens, though it has some quirks that must be understood for best results. In fact, I’d like to own it, and not that much in the Canon line excites me these days. I’ll probably acquire one for myself when finances loosen up. You can get the 24/1.4L II at B&H Photo.
I obtained the 24/1.4L II I used for testing through LensRentals.com. Given them a try, it’s a very convenient and cost-effective way to try a lens or camera for a fraction of the price before you buy.
