Canon EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM Lens

Never knowingly undersold

Product information

Boasting a lightweight and portable design, the Canon EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM lens is ideal for street or travel photographers. Featuring a super-slim pancake design with a wide angle, so you can include more in your photos.

Compact and discreet

Highly portable, this lens weighs just 125 grams and measures just 22.8mm deep, so you can carry it in your camera bag along with your camera.

Natural-looking images

When used on an APS-C EOS body, the focal length of 24mm gives the same angle of view as a 38mm lens used on a full-frame DSLR. This angle of view is similar to that of a human eye, so the images you shoot will have a more natural and realistic look.

Smooth, near-silent focusing

STM focusing quickly locks on when you're taking still images so you can shoot without delay, and provides smooth and almost silent focus transitions when you're shooting movies so that your footage soundtrack is not ruined by focusing noise.

Low-light shooting

With a speedy maximum aperture of f/2.8 letting in lots of light, you'll be able to shoot clear images even in low light without using the flash. You'll also find that you can play around with depth-of-field effects, blurring and softening the background to isolate your subject.

Advanced optical design

Highly resistant to flare and coloured fringing, with a minimum focusing distance of 16cm so you can get up close to smaller subjects and a sharp performance from your lens.
