It's such a rare gem. If I came upon one I could afford, I would possibly sell gear just to switch to a Canon F1n and replacement focal lengths for the Nikon gear I regularly use.

Sorry, I meant the EF 24mm f/1.4 lens. I have a Canon 1V and was thinking of adding this lens.

Have a look at the lens tests of "opticallimits" and "lenstip":
1.
https://www.opticallimits.com/canon_...anon24f14mk2ff
2.
https://www.lenstip.com/245.1-Lens_r...4L_II_USM.html

Both do in general a very solid lens test procedure, and the results are also valid for film use. Only with the main difference that in a lens test with film the resolution numbers are even higher because film can differentiate details even down to 10% contrast difference.
Their results have mostly very well corresponded with my own lens test results of the same lenses tested with film.

Just for additional information:
You should also have a look at the new Zeiss Distagon 1.4/25 (Milvus line). It is both optically and mechanically better in most parameters compared to the Canon. And it is available in Canon EF mount.
