The professional photographer' standard zoom lens.
The EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM is high-performance standard zoom lens with a wide focal-length range. It is designed to meet the needs of professional photographers using digital EOS cameras.
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.
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 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.
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.
The lens comes supplied with a lens hood and a soft case.
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.
