With a f/2.8 aperture, this lens enables you to shoot in any conditions, from natural light to dim scenes. Whether in a candle-lit room or in the sunny outback, you’ll be able to achieve clarity and detail in your subjects. With a versatile zoom range, you’re able to shoot in a variety of scenarios, from sweeping landscapes and expansive architecture to portraiture and street photography. With a minimum focusing distance of just 38cm, you have plenty of range to get up close to your subject.
The new optical design of the Canon EF 24-70mm f2.8 L II USM lens utilises one super UD lens element and 2 UD lens elements to eliminate chromatic aberrations. This results in edge-to-edge definition and striking colour reproduction for sharpness right across the frame. The two types of aspherical elements reduce unwanted spherical aberrations to achieve high image quality across the entire frame and throughout the full zoom range.
This lens is highly resistant to dust and water, so you can take it out and shoot even in harsh conditions. Exposing your lens to the outdoors and the elements won’t be a problem with its weather-sealed build. Take it with you on your travels to shoot in outdoor settings, even in light rain or dusty terrain. The fluorine coating on the front and rear lens elements makes it easy to clean dirt off the glass to ensure your images are exceptionally clear.
The nine-blade circular aperture allows you to create beautiful, out-of-focus backgrounds that bring out the detail in your subject, with a shallow depth of field. This effect is ideal for shooting weddings, portraiture and outdoor nature shots. Even when the light starts to fade, you can achieve clarity and control with soft backgrounds while your subject is pronounced and in focus.
The ring-type ultrasonic motor (USM) together with high-speed central-processing unit (CPU) and optimised AF algorithms enables ultra-fast autofocus. This is great when you don’t want to miss out on any action and want to always be ready for the next shot.
