Design and Features
A replacement for popular Canon EF 35mm F/1.4L USM (1998) designed for high megapixel Canon EOS DSLR cameras. World's first lens to utilize Canon's newly- developed and exclusive Blue Spectrum Refractive Optics (BR Optics), an organic material with unique anomalous dispersion characteristics placed between convex and concave elements made from conventional optical glass. It provides better correction of chromatic aberration in comparison with any other existing technologies (including UD glass, Super UD glass and Fluorite).
The lens is a part of Canon’s series of Luxury lenses notable for their excellent build quality and robust design. The lens barrel is heavy, dust-proof and water-resistant, made of high-quality plastic. The lens mount is metallic. The predecessor of this lens is not weather-sealed. The focusing ring is ribbed and rubberized, well damped, moves very smoothly, has reasonable width and angle of rotation of 150 degrees for comfortable focusing.
The lens features AF/MF focus mode switch.
|AF||Autofocus mode with Full-Time Manual Focus.|
|MF||Manual focus mode.|
The lens uses front filters with standard size of 72 mm which are easy to find. However, filters of such size are more expensive and mainly used with professional lenses.
The filter thread does not rotate during focusing which allows convenient use of different types of filters (including but not limited to polarizing and gradient).
A fluorine coating has been applied to the outer surfaces of the front and rear lens elements to repel particles of dust, water or oil drops for easier cleaning of the lens surfaces.
The lens is equipped with ultrasonic motor, the autofocus is virtually silent and very fast.
1 Super UD
Aspherical elements (ASPH, XA) minimize spherical aberration, astigmatism, coma and ensure excellent sharpness and contrast even at maximum aperture.
Low dispersion elements (AD, ED, LD, HLD, SD, UD etc) and fluorite elements minimize chromatic aberrations and ensure excellent sharpness and contrast even at maximum aperture.
Organic Blue Spectrum Refractive Optics (BR Optics) material placed between convex and concave elements made from traditional optical glass provides more efficient correction of lateral chromatic aberrations in comparison with fluorite, UD and even Super UD elements.
