Canon EF 24-70mm F2.8L Mark II USM Zoom Lens: The all-purpose Canon EF 24-70mm f2.8L II USM Lens is a pro-spec, fast aperture zoom lens that's suitable for all areas of photography. It features a new, redesigned optical system that includes two ultra-low dispersion (UD) and super UD aspheric elements to reduce colour aberration and make sure brilliant sharpness, even at the maximum 70mm focal length.
It has one Super UD lens element and two UD lens elements that minimize chromatic aberration in the periphery at wide-angle, as well as reducing colour blurring around the edges of the subject. Additionally, two types of aspherical lenses are combined to help reduce spherical aberration over the entire image area, plus through the full zoom range. Optimized lens coatings help ensure exceptional colour balance while minimizing ghosting.
Each lens element also features Canon’s optimised Super Spectra coatings to reduce ghosting and flare and guarantee outstanding colour balance. The lens features a compact and tough L series construction to defend the lens from knocks and bumps as well as against dust and moisture. The fast maximum aperture of F2.8 and USM (Ultrasonic Motor) allows for fast, low light shooting and near silent focusing with full-time manual override.
A ring-type USM and high-speed CPU with optimized AF algorithms ensure silent, fast auto focusing. The lens is constructed with superior dust sealing and water resistance, while fluorine coatings on the front and rear lens reduce fingerprints and smearing. A circular 9-blade diaphragm gives beautiful, soft backgrounds. 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.
Additionally, a fluorine coating minimises the amount of dust, dirt and fingerprints that stick to the front and rear of the lens, helping to preserve superior image quality. It captures subjects up close, with a minimum focusing distance of 0.38m at all focal lengths throughout the zoom range. A ring-type Ultrasonic Motor (USM) works in combination with a high performance CPU and highly developed AF algorithms to make sure precise, silent and ultra responsive auto focus.
