EF 35mm f1.4L II USM lens with BR optics


Canon has announced a new wide -angle L-series lens designed for photographers wanting to capture the world with a natural perspective. The EF 35mm f1.4L II USM has been crafted following feedback from Canon’s community of professional photographers and includes a range of advanced optical technologies to deliver outstanding image quality. 

The lens is the first to include BR optics, a new pioneering Canon-developed lens technology featuring an organic optical material which has been engineered at a molecular level to help significantly reduce chromatic aberration and produce sharper images via its ability to refract blue light. The BR Optic is integrated into a compound element in the lens. Together with Canon’s high performance lens coatings, including Subwavelength Structure Coating, the EF 35mm f1.4L II USM delivers results with improved contrast and minimal flare and ghosting.

Natural, reportage-style images
Perfect for capturing images with a documentary feel, the EF 35mm f1.4L II USM is an excellent choice for photojournalists, sports and wedding photographers alike. With its wide-angle view photographers can shoot subjects in their natural habitat within the context of their environment and without distortion. 
     The fast f1.4, nine blade aperture can be used to control depth-of-field, creating shots with beautiful background blur and producing standout portraits, as well as enabling photographers to continue shooting as light levels start to fade.
     For a rapid response to scenes unfolding in front of your eyes, the lens features a ring-type ultrasonic motor to drive the extremely quick and near silent autofocus. A full time manual focusing ring allows you to make fine, real-time adjustments, whether shooting stills or movies. 

Flagship L-series design and build
Designed to withstand challenging shooting environments and prolonged use, the EF 35mm f1.4L II USM boasts the iconic design and build associated with Canon’s flagship L-series lenses. Advanced weather sealing and fluorine coatings help protect the lens against adverse weather conditions and the robust body ensures durability.

EF 35mm f1.4L II USM key benefits:
  • A wide-angle view with a natural perspective
  • Excellent low-light performance and depth-of-field control
  • Sets new standards in image quality
  • Focuses quickly and discreetly
  • Keep shooting even in tough conditions

Pricing and availability
The EF 35mm f1.4L II USM will be available from October 2015 with an SRP of £1,799.99/€2,499.99
