  • Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L II USM

    10 out of 10 points and recommended
    sharpness across the frame is outstanding

    This is an amazing lens for sharpness across the frame - you can absolutely see it crystal clear with a 5DSR. Even at the outmost AF point on the 5DSR it is tack sharp at F1.4! Zero CA that I can tell - the image is so clean. I compared the SLR gear blur chart versus the Otus 55 1.4 at F1.4 and F2 and they are basically identical. This lens is as sharp as the 24-70 F2.8 II at 35mm (its' best FL) @ F2.8 @ 1.4!!!!! So you get 2 stops more light and it is on par with the best wedding mid range zoom in the world. This lens is Otus quality that comes with AF. When you see that it is on par with the Otus you can then understand the value you get. Cannot possibly recommend it more - this is a world class piece of glass and it is built like a tank if you search for a tear down youtube video by lens rentals.
