Product Details


Meeting the ever-increasing demands on image quality that digital photography brings, the redesigned EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM is the latest update to the acclaimed L-Series of EF optics, re-establishing a new standard for superb optics, high-end durable construction and performance in professional zoom lenses. A standard focal length zoom lens, it features a large aperture throughout its focal length. Featuring the latest advances in optical lens design, it utilizes 1 Super UD lens element and 2 UD lens elements that help minimize chromatic aberration in the periphery at wide-angle as well as reduced color blurring around the edges of the subject. In addition, 2 types of aspherical lenses are combined to help reduce spherical aberration over the entire image area as well as through the full zoom range. Optimized lens coatings also help ensure exceptional color balance while minimizing ghosting. The lens is also equipped with a circular 9-blade diaphragm for beautiful, soft backgrounds. A ring-type USM and high-speed CPU with optimized AF algorithms enable silent and fast autofocusing. Built for the rigors of professional use as well as to meet the increased number of shots available with digital photography, it's constructed with improved dust sealing and water resistance while fluorine coatings on the front and rear lens surfaces help reduce soiling, smears and fingerprints. A zoom lock lever locks the zoom position at the wide end for safe transporting while attached to an EOS DSLR camera over the shoulder.

A phenomenal update on a must have

I was not a big fan the first model of the 24-70. But am a huge fan of the new model. Fast AF, light as can be, the strange inverted zoom had been fixed, I love the locking mechanism, and boy is it sharp... Did I mention that it's pretty sharp. A must have.

Awesome addition to my lenses

This lens works wonderfully in my opinion. I do a lot of natural light newborn photography and before this my favorite lens was the 1.8 50mm, but the 2.8 on this with better glass gets the job done and I can zoom which is awesome. It is also great for family portraits and weddings - a great all around lens for a pro photographer. Only con is that the lens hood easily falls off if bumped!

Stunning Images

I do amateur photography for a non-profit organization, and this lens makes my photos look excellent. + Amazing bokah + Photos are sharp and clear + f/2.8 means I can get photos in fairly dark circumstances I had a f/1.4 50mm, but this lens almost never leaves my camera. Excellent all around lens.

There is not much more that I can write about this lens beyond what's already posted here and just about every other site that has a review of it. The colors, sharpness, contrast, bokeh, fast focus --- everything is spectacular. I replaced 3 lenses with this one lens - it's worth the investment.
