Versatile zoom range
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.
Image Stabilizer technology
Shoot hand held in low-light conditions using shutter speeds that are up to 4 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.
High-performance optical design
Capture images of exceptional quality throughout the zoom range. 2 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.
Built to be tough
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.
