EF35mm f/1.4L USM – a photojournalist's dream
Revered by many photographers as their favourite lens, the EF35mm f/1.4L USM stands up as one of the most universally revered lenses. With a field of view slightly wider than the human eye, the lens captures images that look very natural with a slightly reduced perspective.
Who is it for?
The EF35mm f/1.4L USM is suitable for many types of photography but is most commonly used by photojournalists, street photographers and those who are shooting in low light. It is also useful for taking full-length portraits and for capturing low-light city scenes.
- Focal length and maximum aperture: 35 mm 1:1.4
- Lens construction: 11 elements in 9 groups
- Diagonal angle of view: 63°
- Focus adjustment: Rear focusing system with USM
- Closest focusing distance: 0.3m/1ft
- Filter size: 72mm
The EF35mm f/1.4L USM’s ground aspherical lens and floating lens mechanism provide sharp, high quality images across the frame.
The len’s ring-type USM autofocus motor and rear focusing provide silent and fast focusing, while the full-time manual focus enables you to override the focus instantly to ensure your focus point is where it needs to be – right on the eyes of your model, for example.
This high quality, fast prime lens will open up new photographic opportunities that were previously unavailable to you. In low light, the f/1.4 maximum aperture means that you can take advantage of what ambient light there is, and in bright light, you can use the aperture to have complete control over the depth-of-field in your image.
- USM autofocus
A ring-type USM autofocus motor means that you can focus quickly, near-silently and with precision. It also provides full-time manual focus so that you can adjust the focus with the focus ring, without first having to switch the lens to manual focus. This allows you to adjust the focus accurately to ensure it is exactly where you want it to be for the most creative control possible.
