Image quality results from a second copy of the Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L II USM Lens are now available on the site. The new results are shown under lens sample "1". A comparison between the two lens copies is preloaded into the first link.
 
Still to come are test results from the EOS 7D Mark II and Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III, allowing direct comparisons with lenses tested on those bodies.
 
B&H has the Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L II USM Lens available for preorder (initial inventory sold out quickly).
 
Can't wait? The Canon Store has the 35 L II in stock and several are available on eBay.

Image quality results from the EOS 5Ds R have been added to the Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM Lens Review.
 
This small, light lens is a great performer and is definitely 5Ds-ready. Take out the easy-to-correct CA for really impressive performance.

The 35 L II has grown physically over the 35 L I, but as illustrated in this comparison image, most will not likely find the new size to be a differentiator when comparing like-specification lenses. The new lens' weight is also higher, but again, not likely higher enough to influence decisions.

Image quality results from the EOS 5Ds R have been added to the Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L II USM Lens page.
 
We currently have two copies of the 35mm f/1.4 L II lens going through the lab. Results from both will be posted with at least one of the lenses being tested on the EOS 7D Mark II and Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III, allowing direct comparisons with lenses tested on those bodies.
 
This is a very sharp lens. The contrast at f/1.4 looks great.

Image quality results from the EOS 5Ds R have been added to the Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM Lens Review.
 
Note that Canon does not officially support extenders being used with the 70-300 L lens. However, with-extender results are included in the image quality results for this lens. As this lens is extended to increase focal length, adequate space becomes available for extenders, with their protruding front elements, to physically mount. Care must be taken when using these lens combinations as impact will occur if the 70-300 L is retracted (zoomed out) far enough with an extender mounted behind it.

Image quality results have been added to the Tokina 11-20mm f/2.8 AT-X Pro DX Lens page.
 
Based on the requests we have been receiving for test results, the new Tokina 11-20mm has the interest of many. This APS-C format-only lens appears similar in build and specs to the shorter focal length range Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 AT-X Pro DX II Lens. While an image quality comparison between these two lenses (and many others) is available, discernment between test cameras models must be made.

Image quality results from the EOS 5Ds R have been added to the Canon EF 35mm f/2 IS USM Lens Review.
 
This useful lens is relatively small, light and, with a wide aperture paired with image stabilization, is handholdable in very low light levels.

The Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L II USM Lens Review page is loaded with my expectations for this lens along with comparison charts and other information.
 
Canon's MTF chart foretells exceptional optical performance. An MTF comparison between the version I and II lenses is included in the preview.
 
The image accompanying this post shows an approximate size comparison between the older Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L USM Lens (on the right) and the new 35 L II. Obviously, the new lens is modestly larger.

MTF charts have been added to the Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM Lens Review.
 
The 100-400 L II is, in many ways, an impressive zoom lens. The MTF charts (especially the variance charts) highlight its optical impressiveness.
