- Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM
This new lens does what many pros thought couldn't be done - replace the previous L-series 28-70 f/2.8 lens with something even better. Its maximum aperture of f/2.8 stays constant throughout the zoom range of 24-70mm. Optimized lens coatings helps lessen the ghosting and flare produced by internal reflection and makes more crisp and clear images. The manual focus feature makes the lens possible in AF mode. Lead-free glass makes the whole package highly resistant to dust and water droplets. With the ring-type ultrasonic AF motor, it attains focus quickly, quietly and accurately.
Product Features in Detail
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.
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.
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.
