Canon ( ef-24-105mm-f-4l-is-ii-usm) EF 24-105mm F4L IS II USM
EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II USM is a standard zoom lens that goes just that little bit further, whether you’re shooting photography or video. This lens is ideal for when you need to capture exceptional image quality, while travelling light.
For high-quality images that impress
Specialised lens elements help you to enjoy high image quality right across the zoom range, by minimizing visible distortion. The integrated advanced Air Sphere Coating helps to guard against flare and ghosting when shooting in environments with unpredictable natural light.
Extended zoom range with constant maximum aperture
Swap quickly between wide-angle, standard and short-telephoto focal lengths while maintaining an f/4 maximum aperture.
Stay sharp even in low light
Image Stabilizer combats the blurring effects of camera shake, so you can shoot up to 4 stops slower than normal.
Be versatile with video
The EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II USM is just as useful for video as it is for still photography, offering focal lengths in a compact package that are ideal for a variety of subjects. Advanced autofocus allows for smooth, professional-looking, near-silent focus transitions and continuous focus tracking, with full-time manual override.
When the going gets tough, keep shooting
EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II USM features the new exterior L- series lens design. This robust construction is built to withstand the rigours of professional use, with enhanced resistance to shock and vibration.
