Product Description

Spanning a popular and versatile range of focal lengths, the EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM is a Canon L-series zoom commonly thought of as the workhorse of lenses. Ranging from wide-angle to portrait length, this lens is also distinguished by its constant f/2.8 maximum aperture to benefit working in difficult lighting conditions and to afford greater control over depth of field. The lens is also characterized by its sophisticated optical design, which includes one Super UD element and two UD elements, which reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations in order to realize a high degree of color accuracy and clarity. Three aspherical elements are also featured, and minimize distortion and spherical aberrations for improved sharpness. Additionally, a Super Spectra coating has been applied to individual elements to control flare and ghosting for high contrast and neutral color fidelity.

Balancing the refined optics, this 24-70mm f/2.8 also sports a ring-type USM and internal focusing mechanism to enable quick, quiet, and accurate autofocus performance, as well as full-time manual focus override. Additionally, this lens is weather-sealed and has a protective fluorine coating on the exposed elements for use in trying environmental conditions.

  • Standard zoom is designed for full-frame Canon EF-mount DSLRs, however can also be used with APS-C models where it provides a 38.4-112mm equivalent focal length range.
  • Bright constant f/2.8 maximum aperture affords consistent illumination throughout the zoom range and also affords greater control over depth of field for working with selective focus techniques.
  • One Super Ultra-Low Dispersion element and two ultra-low dispersion glass elements noticeably reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations for high clarity and color fidelity.
  • Three aspherical elements minimize spherical aberrations and distortions for improved sharpness and accurate rendering.
  • Super Spectra coating has been applied to individual elements to minimize ghosting and flare for greater contrast and color neutrality when working in strong lighting conditions.
  • A ring-type Ultrasonic Motor (USM), along with an internal focusing design, optimized focusing algorithms, and a high-speed CPU, is employed to deliver fast, precise, and quiet autofocus performance as well as full-time manual focus override.
  • Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing out of focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.
  • Protective fluorine coating has been applied to the front and rear element to resist fingerprints and smudges and to make cleaning these elements significantly easier.
  • As a member of the esteemed L-series, this lens is sealed against dust and moisture for working in inclement environmental conditions.
  • Zoom lock lever secures the zoom position at the wide end to maintain a compact form factor and protect the lens when not in use.

    This lens is amazing! It is super sharp and the auto focus works really well in low light. The bokeh is just awesome. MarCamera is an awesome place to buy your gear, I had my lens in 3 business days. It showed up in perfect condition thanks to the great packaging job. I would definitely recommend this lens and MarCamera!

    I absolutely love this lens! Its always in my kit and for good reason. Its a must when Im shooting video. Great for interviews and b roll. With the ability to do so much in a good focal range. And for stills its crisp and sharp to get the job done, especially when doing documentary work where you dont know where your going to be. And at 2.8 its great when theres low light conditions. All in all its a really good lens to have. You wont regret it!

    As an intermediate level photographer, I have been using kit Canon 24-105 F/4 L lens. Bought 24-70 F/2.8 L II - it's so much better in every respect: the focus is much sharper than 24-105, charming bokeh. In my opinion, the lens is well worth the cost.

    This lens has been on my shopping list for a very long time and I finally pulled the trigger. I had high expectations, but those were blown away by the quality and performance of this canon lens. I will use this lens for a majority of the shoots I do now. Focus speed is lighting fast and the color is vibrant. If youre asking yourself if its worth it the answer is yes.
