The EF 24mm f2.8 IS USM Lens is the world's first wide-angle prime with Image Stabilisation and features a fast f/2.8 maximum aperture that is perfect for landscape, travel and documentary photography. Canon's Image Stabilisation allows the use of shutter speeds up to four stops slower than usual and the USM (Ultrasonic Motor) provides fast, near-silent focusing with full-time manual focus override for fine adjustment without changing focus modes. A seven-bladed circular aperture provides beautiful bokeh, while Super Spectra coatings reduce flare. The Canon EF 24mm f/2.8 IS USM’s classic prime-lens design minimises distortion and aberrations, which can degrade image quality. Weighing in at just 280g and measuring 68.4mm x 55.7mm, the Canon EF 24mm f/2.8 IS USM is a great low-light performer that you can take with you everywhere. This lens is suitable for use with both full-frame and cropped sensor (APS-C) cameras. More
10th Feburary 2012 - "This week Canon officially added three new EF lenses to their lineup, including the very much anticipated next generation 24-70mm f2.8 lens as well as two replacements for the very popular 24mm f2.8 and 28mm f2.8 primes." Read more about the New Lenses here...
For a full comparison between the new 24mm lens and the old version, see the table below:
A 24mm wide-angle prime lens with an 84° angle of view on full-frame DSLRs – perfect for landscape photographers. On EOS cameras featuring APS-C sized sensors, the Canon EF 24mm f/2.8 IS USM gives an angle of view equivalent to a 38mm lens on a full-frame camera, making it a useful alternative to a standard lens.
Shoot in low-light conditions
A maximum aperture of f/2.8 permits hand-held photography in available light without flash. Image stabilisation allows shutter speeds up to four stops slower than usual to be used without the risk of camera shake.
Fast, quiet autofocus
An ultrasonic autofocus motor (USM) provides fast, near-silent focusing. Full-time manual focus override allows fine adjustment without changing focus modes.

Comments about Canon EF 24mm f2.8 IS USM Lens:
I recently upgraded to a 5D mk3 and wanted a decent wide angle lens for landscapes (to use when the wildlife are beyond the reach of my 100-400L). I also wanted a lens for family groups and indoor concerts/jigs - where IS is really useful, even at 24mm. This lens is super! Landscapes have lots of detail and colour (particularly with polarising filter). Software correction for chromatic aberration is easy to apply and is worth doing. Indoor family groups are easy now with the wide angle of view. Haven't found anything that isn't great yet, although I do need a filter wrench to get the filter off - but that may well be a problem with the filter! This lens stays in my bag - I use it more than I expected to!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
