Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM Standard Zoom Lens

The professional’s standard zoom lens

A professional-quality standard zoom that offers superlative image quality and a fast f/2.8 maximum aperture throughout its zoom range. The perfect companion to any full-frame EOS camera.

Hand-Held Low Light Shooting
The EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM's constant f/2.8 aperture throughout the zoom range makes the lens a great low light performer that is able to make the most of any available ambient light. The fixed aperture also gives you optimum control over depth-of-field. The new 9-bladed diaphragm produces a circular aperture, which helps to achieve beautifully blurred backgrounds with attractive bokeh. This means your subject can stand out against the background, with no distractions.

Next-Generation Optical Design
The EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM delivers superb image quality throughout its zoom range, thanks to aspherical lens elements and ultra-low dispersion (UD) and super UD glass. Redesigned optics ensure sharpness is maximised across the frame.

Featuring the latest advances in optical design, the EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM brings together three aspherical elements to provide the highest possible image quality in a lens of this focal length. Significant reduction in chromatic aberration and reduced colour blur means less time in post production with an edge-to-edge sharpness usually only found in prime lenses.

What is an Aspherical Element?
An aspherical element is a free-curved internal component within your lens that corrects the distortion caused by the curvature of the spherical lens elements.

These components are only found in professional quality lenses.

Aspherical aberration produced with a standard lens can be avoided by using a higher quality lens with additional aspherical elements.

The EF 24-70 f/2.8L II USM has three aspherical elements to separately counteract each of the individual internal aberrations, so your images are exceptionally sharp.

Versatile 24-70mm Zoom Range
The ideal companion for any full-frame EOS camera. Perfect for applications ranging from landscape and travel photography to portraiture and photojournalism.

Shoot in Low Light Conditions
A fast f/2.8 maximum aperture is maintained throughout the zoom range, enabling hand-held low-light shooting in a variety of situations.

L-Series Build Quality
The EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM is robust enough for daily professional use. Weather sealing protects against dust and moisture, while a fluorine-coated front and rear elements are easy to clean.

Only the best technology and production techniques go into the building of each L-series lens. Part of the prestigious ‘Luxury’ line up, these lenses showcase the very best that Canon have to offer.

USM Autofocus
A ring-type ultrasonic AF motor achieves focus quickly, quietly and accurately. Full-time manual override is available, making it possible to adjust focus without changing focus modes.

It also provides override manual focus allowing you to stay in control. This helps you to adjust the focus accurately to ensure it is exactly where you want it to be for the most creative control.

Close Focusing
A 0.38m closest-focus distance adds to the versatility of the EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM, providing a maximum magnification of 0.21x.

Beautiful Background Blur
A nine-bladed circular aperture provides superb bokeh, ideal for portraiture.

Area of Use
A versatile standard zoom lens for any professional photographer.
