With an extended 24-70 mm zoom range, the Canon EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM Lens delivers outstanding image quality and maintains consistent exposures throughout the range thanks to a fixed f/4 aperture. A separate macro position on the zoom ring lets you focus down to just 0.38 m with a max reproduction ratio of 0.7x life size.

Be prepared for split-second moments as you shoot with a fast, responsive Auto Focus in Ultra-Sonic Motor (USM) technology and the Image Stabilizer (IS) technology counteracts camera shake, with Hybrid IS for use in Macro Mode – detecting both angular and shift movements for even sharper results when up close.

Versatile zoom range

Tackle a variety of subjects from landscape to portrait to documentary. The Canon EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM Lens 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.

Macro mode

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 four 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. Two 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.

Advanced autofocus

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.

Refined performance

A circular, nine-bladed aperture diaphragm helps generate smooth out-of-focus bokeh, letting your foreground subjects stand out with clarity.
