Product information

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

Key benefits:

  • 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.
  • A fast f/2.8 maximum aperture is maintained throughout the zoom range, enabling hand-held low-light shooting in a variety of situations.
  • Weather sealing protects against dust and moisture, while a fluorine-coated front and rear elements are easy to clean.
  • 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.
  • 0.38m closest-focus distance adds to the versatility of this lens, providing a maximum magnification of 0.21x.
  • A nine-bladed circular aperture provides superb bokeh, ideal for portraiture.
  • Includes a lens cap, bayonet hood and soft case.
  • For use with EF mount Canon DSLR cameras
