A precision-designed ultra wide-angle lens. This 14mm f/2.8 optic uses ultra low dispersion (UD) and aspherical elements to boost image quality, while its rectilinear design corrects for distortion.

The EF 14mm f/2.8L II USM goes beyond human perspective, taking in a massive 114˚ field of view. A corrected, rectilinear design make this an ideal lens for architecture, interiors and landscapes. its ultra wide-angle nature gives a strong separation between foreground and background elements.
The L-series is Canon's flagship professional lens range, representing the best in precision-designed EF optics. L-series lenses combine superior performance with superlative handling, and are resistant to dust and moisture.
A maximum aperture of f/2.8 allows photographers to shoot hand-held in low-light conditions without worrying about blur from camera shake.
For optimum visual performance the lens incorporates aspherical elements to correct spherical aberrations, and Super UD (ultra-low dispersion) elements to eliminate chromatic aberrations. The result is crisp, high-contrast images that are free from distortion all the way across the frame.
A ring-type ultrasonic motor drives autofocus extremely quickly, and in near silence. Excellent holding torque ensures the point of focus is reached accurately, without overshooting. Furthermore, full-time manual override is available, making it possible to adjust focus without leaving AF mode.
Super Spectra coatings help ensure accurate colour balance and high contrast. They also suppress flare and ghosting by absorbing light that would otherwise be reflected off internal lens elements and the camera's digital sensor.
A circular aperture delivers smooth, even-looking background blur - ideal for isolating subjects against a blurred background.
The EF 14mm f/2.8L II USM features an integrated lens hood that protects the front lens element and improves contrast. Its petal shaped design prevents vignetting. A lens cap and soft case are also supplied.
