Canon EF 24mm f/1.4L II USM

EF24_14LII
Review Date: Mar 21, 2011 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

Pros: Sharpness, colors, "pop", build quality, overall image quality
Cons:
Price

Had to decide between this and the 35L after deciding which FL I used the most on my 24-70L, and ended up with the 24L as it has better build quality, rubber gaskets, and ultimately a more attractive focal length for what I shoot, which is a good mix of people, landscapes, nature vistas, etc.

Contrast/Sharpness: Excellent
Focus speed/accuracy: Excellent, with one caveat - at apertures larger than f/2.8, hitting focus can be difficult with distances longer than 2 metres. Not an issue for me, though, and it can probably be corrected.
Build: As good as it gets. Ive had it out in salty spray, no issues.

Great lens, will probably own this forever. Had it for six months or so.
