Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM Telephoto Lens

Product information

Offering a greater focal-length range and a more compact construction than other standard zooms, the EF 24-105mm f/4 IS USM is the ideal lens for the professional travel photographer.

Key benefits:

  • The EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM offers a 4.3x zoom ratio, from wide angle to medium telephoto. It is highly portable, weighing just 670g.
  • The f/4 maximum aperture of the EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM is fixed throughout the lens' focal-length range, so shutter speeds will not change as the lens is zoomed.
  • The EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM features Canon's three-stop image stabiliser, making it ideal for handheld work. IS permits the use of shutter speeds up to three stops slower than normal, with no perceptible increase in image blur from camera shake.
  • The lens incorporates a Super UD (ultra-low dispersion) glass element to eliminate secondary chromatic aberrations. Aspherical lens elements correct for spherical aberrations. The result is crisp, high-contrast, undistorted optical performance throughout the zoom range, without colour fringing at high-contrast edges.
  • A ring-type ultrasonic motor drives autofocus extremely quickly, and in near silence. Excellent holding torque ensures the point of focus is reached accurately, without overshooting. Furthermore, full-time manual override is available, making it possible to adjust focus without leaving AF mode.
  • Super Spectra coatings ensure accurate colour balance and enhance contrast. They also reduce flare and ghosting – a common problem caused by light bouncing off a camera's sensor.
  • Includes a petal bayonet hood and soft case.
  • For use with EF mount Canon DSLR cameras

Q & As

Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM Telephoto Lens 5 5 2 2
Superb quality Lens I had often wondered how good Canon "L" lenses were, well now I know. The clarity of picture is unbelievably good. The build quality is very solid as well. I bought this lens to go with my Canon 70D and although it means the wide end is reduced on a cropped frame APS-C sensor, it does give me a boost at the narrow end (effectively 39-168mm on Canon APS-C) but I personally don't find this a problem. A great lens. 22 July 2014
A great walk around lens I got the 24-105 as part of the 6d kit and am glad I did. It's a great zoom lens with accurate AF that produces lovely sharp images. I use the 24-105 as my walk around lens it's a comfortable weight and extremely versatile. If your buying a 6D or 5D mkiii then it's a bargain as part of the kit especially if you buy it with a cash back offer. 24 May 2014
