Photo Review

Canon’s EF 14mm f/2.8L II USM lens replaces an existing lens with similar specifications. Designed for professional photographers and usable on both ‘full frame’ DSLRs and models with smaller (‘APS-C sized’) image sensors, it has many of the same specifications as the lens it replaces.

SLR Gear:

Canon seems to have improved just about everything that is physically possible to improve upon with this lens. If you were looking at getting into ultra-wide angle photography and were wondering whether to buy one of the four alternative lenses, the choice is going to be more about how much money you’re willing to spend. Thankfully, this choice only becomes truly difficult if you have a full-frame body: APS-C sensor body users are better served with the much more reasonably-priced (and excellent) Canon 10-22mm. We can’t definitively say that the Canon models outperform the Sigma or the Tamron, not having yet tested those lenses, but we can say that if you do decide to buy the Canon EF 14mm Æ’/2.8 II USM, you probably won’t be disappointed.

This new II version is much better than the original in terms of ghosting and, if you look at everything at 100%, side sharpness, but if you already own the original 14mm L, I wouldn’t go out of my way to buy this one unless you really have issue with the sharpness at the sides, or the two amber ghosts that appear opposite the sun.
