Canon 35mm f/1.4L II Aperture Series: Below the Icy Waterfall

Get Canon 35mm f/1.4L II at B&H Photo.

Canon 35mm f/1.4L II

Perhaps because of the demise of the DSLR market, a lens arrived last fall which may represent the best 35mm lens on the market today but has not seen much love: the Canon 35mm f/1.4L II. At about $1799 it is a very strong value for what it delivers. Nikon’s AF-S 35/1.4G isn’t even in the running compared to the Canon 35/1.4L II. The Sigma 35/1.4 DG HSM Art is the only lens that might approach it in performance at f/1.4.

This series was taken in early November 2015. It is extremely demanding with its high contrast near to far subject matter. As a bonus, the sparkling water areas show us the point spread function.

Canon 35mm f/1.4L II Aperture Series: Below the Icy Waterfall

Includes full resolution images from f/1.4 through f/13 at image sizes up to 24 megapixels along with large crops.

My Canon 35mm f/1.4L (prior version is for sale): $700.

I came upon this delightful early November scene much later in the day than I would have liked, and approach was treacherous. It would have been ideal to photograph it before the sun rose, in all its icy blue glory.
