A versatile standard zoom well suited to full-frame EOS cameras and a variety of subjects
A versatile 24-70mm f/4 L-series lens with macro mode for up to 0.7x magnification. Ultrasonic AF provides fast, near-silent focusing. UD and aspherical elements deliver superb image quality.
Tackle a variety of subjects from landscape to portrait to documentary. The EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM is an ideal standard lens for your full-frame Canon DSLR, featuring wide angle, standard and telephoto focal lengths and a constant f/4 maximum aperture that doesn’t change as the lens is zoomed.
A separate macro position on the zoom ring enables close focusing down to just 0.38m at any zoom position, and a maximum reproduction ratio of 0.7x life size.
Shoot hand held in low-light conditions using shutter speeds that are up to four stops slower than usually recommended. Image Stabilizer (IS) technology detects automatically when a photographer is panning to follow moving objects and switches off stablisation in this direction. Hybrid IS detects both angular and shift movements when in macro mode.
Capture images of exceptional quality throughout the zoom range. Two types of aspherical lens element are used in combination with ultra-low dispersive (UD) elements to effectively eliminate optical aberrations. Super spectra coatings minimise glare and maximise contrast.
Enjoy fast, near-silent autofocus thanks to a ring-type ultrasonic AF motor. Stay in control with full-time manual focus override.
Keep shooting even in demanding conditions. The lens is sealed against dust and moisture and the use of fluoride coatings ensures lens elements are easy to clean.
A circular, nine-bladed aperture diaphragm helps generate smooth out-of-focus bokeh, letting your foreground subjects stand out with clarity.
