CANON 14/2.8 L II
Ultra-wide angle lenses have always been in demand by architectural, corporate, and other top pro photographers. This new lens features completely redesigned optics including 2 high-precision Aspherical elements and two totally new UD-glass elements. The result is superior image quality: better contrast and sharpness at the outer edges, and a reduction in chromatic aberrations that can sometimes be seen with high-resolution digital SLRs. Its diagonal angle of view is an impressive 114"-anything larger would be a Fisheye lens. It has a built-in lens hood, and has been dust- and moisture- proofed. The lens uses a rear focusing system, high-speed CPU, and a powerful ring-type USM with revised electronics for faster, more responsive AF. This lens continues the proud tradition of superior clarity optics found in L-series Canon lenses.
A special perspective
The EF 14mm f/2.8L II USM goes beyond human perspective, taking in a massive 114 degree field of view. A corrected, rectilinear design make this an ideal lens for architecture, interiors and landscapes. its ultra wide-angle nature gives a strong separation between foreground and background elements.
The L-series is Canon's flagship professional lens range, representing the best in precision-designed EF optics. L-series lenses combine superior performance with superlative handling, and are resistant to dust and moisture.
Fast maximum aperture
A maximum aperture of f/2.8 allows photographers to shoot hand-held in low-light conditions without worrying about blur from camera shake.
Aspherical and UD elements
For optimum visual performance the lens incorporates aspherical elements to correct spherical aberrations, and Super UD (ultra-low dispersion) elements to eliminate chromatic aberrations. The result is crisp, high-contrast images that are free from distortion all the way across the frame.
A ring-type ultrasonic motor drives autofocus extremely quickly, and in near silence. Excellent holding torque ensures the point of focus is reached accurately, without overshooting. Furthermore, full-time manual override is available, making it possible to adjust focus without leaving AF mode.
Super Spectra coating
Super Spectra coatings help ensure accurate color balance and high contrast. They also suppress flare and ghosting by absorbing light that would otherwise be reflected off internal lens elements and the camera's digital sensor.
A circular aperture delivers smooth, even-looking background blur - ideal for isolating subjects against a blurred background.
The EF 14mm f/2.8L II USM features an integrated lens hood that protects the front lens element and improves contrast. Its petal shaped design prevents vignetting. A lens cap and soft case are also supplied.
