Reduced Chromatic Effects
The blue spectrum refractive (BR) optics refracts shorter wavelengths of the visible blue light spectrum which acts to significantly reduce chromatic aberrations. The mechanics of this feature reduces colour fringing, ghosting and flaring. This results in images with clarity for a true professional feel.
Clear and Sharp Images
In addition to the blue spectrum refractive (BR) optics, this lens is equipped with two aspherical elements and an ultra-low dispersion (UD) element to control chromatic aberrations and distortion. Reduced colour fringing increases clarity and sharpness in your images for edge-to-edge definition and accurate reproduction.
Enhanced with a subwavelength coating to minimise reflection in your lens, unwanted ghosting and flare is eliminated. This gives your images high contrast and colour rendition.
No Smudges or Fingerprints
The front and rear lens surfaces of this lens is coated in fluorine layers which reduces smears and fingerprints. This helps to keep your lens clear and smudge-free by preventing dust, water, oil and other surface residue from sticking. It’s easy to wipe the surface clean without the need for harsh cleaning products if it gets dirty.
Create Soft Bokeh
The nine-blade circular aperture provides ease of control over the depth of field, producing smooth and pleasing out-of-focus backgrounds for portraits. Beautiful background blur creates a soft mood, ideal for wedding photography, portraiture and nature shots. Even when light starts to fade, you can achieve clarity and control with soft backgrounds while your subject is pronounced and in focus.
Near Silent Autofocus
To quickly capture moments as they happen, the ring-type ultrasonic motor (USM) delivers efficient and near silent autofocus. This is great when you don’t want to be distracting at an event or need to be quiet out in nature shooting wildlife.
Dust and Moisture Resistant
With weather sealing, the Canon EF 35mm F1.4L II USM lens is resistant to dust and moisture, ideal for outdoor settings that expose your lens to challenging outdoor shooting environments. Take this lens with you anywhere, even out in harsh elements.
Close-Ups, Portraits or Landscapes
The fast f/1.4 aperture results in standout portraits, while the 35mm fixed focal length allows you to shoot wide angle landscapes in natural settings without distortion. The minimum focus distance of 11" with a 0.21x maximum magnification is ideal for close-up subjects.
