Canon EF 24mm f/1.4L II USM measurements and review


The best to benchmark the Canon EF 24mm f/1.4 L II USM is to compare it with its excellent Nikon equivalent, the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24mm f/1.4G ED.

  • Both lenses have very similar transmission and distortion with a slight advantage for the Canon EF 24mm f/1.4 L II USM
  • The resolution of both lenses is also very similar, even if they both have their own weaknesses: the Canon is excellent at F/4 but less good at F/1.4. And, the Nikon, even if it is more homogenous, is really at its best above F/5.6
  • Vignetting really is the weak point of the Canon EF 24mm f/1.4 L II USM down to -3 EV at F/1.4.
  • Both lenses keep the chromatic aberration really low, with a small advantage for the Canon lens.

Overall, both these lenses are the very best for landscape photography with a Use Case score of 4.5 stars.
