p.1 #1 · 24 f/1.4 shots on 1d iii


I have a 24mm MF lens (adapted) that I've been experimenting with and like the focal length on my 1d iii. I'm now considering the 24L and I'm curious about your experience shooting the Canon 24 1.4 ii on a 1.3 crop sensor. Sharp wide open? Please post shots at various apertures 'cause I'd love some real world results.
Thanks,
-Cam

I don't think you have to worry about corner sharpness and vignetting when shooting with crop camera

Quite right Lars, thanks; my head is clearly up my arse on that one. Perhaps moving from 1.6 to 1.3 is more of a challenge for me mentally than I realized (sigh).

In any event, I'd love to see some sample photos.

It's great. I'm really happy with it on my 1D2.

onegreatcity: I'll post some snapshots when I'll get home (I'm at work now).

But it's the 1D II + 24L II (not 1D III)

i am having 2 apsh-cameras (including 1D3) and recently purchased the 24L.
i bought it for everything below f2.8 (the new 2470 probably will be good enough from 2.8 upwards).
at the wide apertures, corner sharpness is not important (its more the background you choose).
but: the center sharpness at f1.4 is incredible. i was suprised. and the corner sharpness is absolutely acceptable (with accurate focussing).
at small apertures you will see tack sharp corners relativley early (around f2.8. ?)
no time to post examples, sorry.
just that: the 24L comes excellent on the 1D3, for many things (portrait, landscape, events, city-walks etc).

I find the 24L a perfect match on a aps-h body, for street walk. I really love the FL on my 1D II (and also that they're both weather sealed)

My 24L works exceptionally well on my 1D3.

No sample shots? I suppose it won't matter, I think I've talked myself into buying one anyway...

Love it, on both 1.3 crop and FF.







Very sharp indeed wide open, but heavy vignetting on FF, easily corrected in post, if you worry about these things.

Excellent! Thanks for the samples and feedback. I got a very good price through a private sale on a (basically) new in box 24! Bonus UV filter too. Can't wait to get home after work to try it out!!
