Canon Unveils Ultra-Wide Angle EF 14mm f/2.8L II USM Lens

Canon EF 14mm f/2.8L II USM Lens

Canon has announced its ultra-wide EF 14mm f/2.8L II USM lens boasting a 114-degree angle of view; exceeded only by Canon’s EF15mm f/2.8 Fisheye. The new lens has the shortest focal length in Canon’s renowned professional L-series range.

“The newly designed lens incorporates aspherical and UD elements to achieve the very highest standards of image fidelity,” Canon said in the announcement.

With the latest Ultrasonic Motor for fast and accurate auto focus and the addition of dust and moisture sealing, it replaces the enormously popular EF14mm f/2.8L USM.

This super-fast lens has a super price of $2199; it will be available in October.
