Canon EF 24mm f/1.4L II USM Lens Image Quality Comparison

Canon EF 24mm f/1.4L II USM Lens Image Quality Comparison

These images were captured on a 1Ds Mark III on a clear day using ideal techniques (tripod, mirror lockup, Live View MF, self-timer release) and converted from RAW in Canon's DPP using the "Standard" Picture Style with sharpening set to 1 (low) and AWB selected. And no noise reduction. The "f/1.4*" samples were given a healthy amount of additional sharpening in Adobe Photoshop to show a what-is-possible scenario. Hover your mouse over the labels below to display a 100% near-center crop sample from that lens and aperture setting combination.
