Lens brightness and image stabilizer
The lens brightness and aperture value is f/1,4.
This aperture value indicates that the lens is extremely bright.  This will make it so much easier shooting in darker environments where you do not want or can use flash lighting, for example in churches or at different sports venues.
The lens lacks image stabilization, which otherwise os good for avoiding the blur that can occur when using slow shutter speeds. Since the lens is bright, with good aperture value, the lack of image stabilization might not be that big of a deal, although a image stabilizer is always an advantage to have.

Text from Canon:"The Canon EF24mm f/1.4L II USM, an interchangeable L (luxury)-series lens for Canon EOS-series SLR cameras. The large-diameter, wide-angle lens boasts an ultra-wide maximum aperture of f/1.4, the brightest* in its class. Incorporating special optic materials like glass mold aspherical lenses and UD (ultra-low dispersion) lenses, the new high-performance L-series EF24mm f/1.4L II USM realizes enhanced image quality over its predecessor, the large-diameter wide-angle EF24mm f/1.4L USM, which released to favorable reviews in December 1997. In addition to two high-precision glass mold aspherical lenses that enhance overall image quality, the EF24mm f/1.4L II USM features two UD lenses that minimize color bleeding (chromatic aberration of magnification), which tends to occur on the periphery of photos taken by wide-angle lenses. Newly developed Subwavelength Structure Coating minimizes ghosting and flare caused by light with a large angle of incidence. The new high-performance lens also incorporates a dust- and moisture-proof body that provides added protection in the harshest of environments. This and other features, including a high-speed autofocus made possible by a ring-type ultrasonic motor and high-speed CPU, ensure that the EF24mm f/1.4L II USM lives up to the high expectations of professional users.

Canon´s newest fixed length L-series lens, the EF 24mm f/1.4L II USM, incorporates the newest in Canon lens technology for spectacular sharpness and impressive performance at all settings. It features two high-precision, large-diameter aspherical lenses for sharpness across the sensor, even in peripheral areas of full-frame sensors. Lens elements have a newly-designed anti-reflective SWC (Sub Wavelength Coating) that departs from conventional coatings by using an extremely fine structure that minimizes ghosting and flaring across the lens surface, regardless of the angle with which light enters or exits. It also features two UD lens elements to minimize chromatic aberrations, incorporates rear-focusing, ultrasonic, quiet and high-speed AF with full-time manual override. A circular aperture provides beautiful out-of-focus detail and offers legendary dust- and water-resistant L-series construction using only lead-free glass."
