EF 35mm f/1.4L USM
This has long been a dream lens for aspiring photojournalists and documentary shooters, with its slightly wide-angle coverage and the terrific low-light capability its f/1.4 maximum aperture provides. But it's not just news shooters who can benefit from this lens. Business users who document events or processes are a key potential user, especially if they can't bring in additional lighting for indoor shooting. And video users, looking to exploit its unique ability to throw backgrounds out of focus in a wide view, open up new possibilities for creatively using this professional lens.
- Professional-grade "L-series" lens with excellent optics, combining crisp imaging with fast f/1.4 maximum aperture
- Two stops more speed than popular f/2.8 zoom lenses – a great addition to zooms for the available-light photographer
- Perfect for traditional moderate wide documentary or environmental portrait coverage, when used with full-frame digital camera bodies (near-standard coverage on 1.3x or 1.6x sensor bodies)
- Limited depth-of-field at wide apertures with HD video opens door to creative use of "rack-focus" and selectively focusing on foregrounds, to throw backgrounds out of focus
