Professional construction

The EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM lens is a high-performance standard zoom lens with a fast maximum aperture that stays constant throughout the zoom range. It is resistance to dust and moisture and focuses down to just 0.38m.

L-series quality

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.

Ultrasonic focusing

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.

Subwavelength structure coating

Designed for use in digital photography, Canon’s patented lens-element coating helps minimise the ghosting and flare caused by internal reflection and helps to deliver crisp, clear images.

Accessories

The lens comes supplied with a lens hood and a soft case.

Smooth background blur

A virtually circular aperture diaphragm gives out of focus regions a softer, more uniform feel. Sharp foreground objects stand out against a smooth blurred background.
