Canon EF 14mm f/2.8L II USM Lens - provides the shortest focal length in Canon's acclaimed Professional L-Series and 114-degree field of view surpassed only by the Canon EF 15 f / 2.8 fisheye lens ... Photographers will be able to use the lens' ultra-wide angle of view of 114 degrees to create striking effects. The Canon EF 14 f / 2.8 L II USM is effective both when photographing buildings and other large objects when the photographer cannot get far enough to fit the entire subject into the frame, as well as when shooting in small spaces. The lens has a close focusing distance of just 20cm, allowing photographers to get close to subjects for creative wide-angle shots. In addition to an improved lens shape to reduce stray light reflection and the use of non-reflective materials in the lens barrel, the Canon EF 14 f/2.8 L II USM uses Canon's patented Super Spectra lens coating. This coating helps to reduce unwanted reflections and ghosting, which are common with digital cameras due to light reflecting off the image sensor. By increasing light absorption, Super Spectra Coating reduces the reflective effect of lenses, resulting in bright, clear images with natural color reproduction. This new lens incorporates aspherical and ultra-low dispersion elements to achieve the highest standards of image fidelity. Featuring a state-of-the-art ring-type ultrasonic motor for fast, accurate autofocusing and dust and water resistance, it replaces the hugely popular Canon EF 14 f/2.8 L USM.
