EF24-105mm f/4L IS USM – an image stabilized standard zoom
For situations that mean you need to act fast and not change lenses often, the EF24-105mm f/4L IS USM is a high quality, standard zoom lens that can handle most general shooting situations easily.
Who is it for?
Adored by wedding and event photographers, the EF24-105mm f/4L IS USM lens has carved a niche as a highly versatile lens. For many photographers this lens can provide all of the focal lengths they’re likely to need during a wedding ceremony from wideangle group shots, to more intimate portraits of the bride and groom. Travel and landscape photographers find it an indispensible lens as it covers a wide zoom range from wideangle to telephoto with a constant f/4 maximum aperture and Image Stabilizer.
- L-series optics
- Lightweight 4.3x zoom
- f/4 through zoom range
- 3-stop Image Stabilizer
- Super UD and aspheric lens elements
- Fast autofocus
- Super Spectra coatings
- Circular aperture provides pleasing background blur
- Soft case and lens hood
Incorporating three aspherical lens elements of two types – one glass mold (GMo) and two replica elements – with one super ultra-low dispersion (super UD) element, the lens produces sharp, high contrast images suitable for an L-series lens.
The addition of the 3-stop Image Stabilizer means you can continue to shoot without having to resort to flash in low light situations and therefore capture more natural results. The lens isn’t just for weddings though. It makes a very effective standard walkabout lens with a focal range that ensures you’ll be changing lenses less and shooting more. Teamed with one of the 70-200mm f/4L lenses, it makes an excellent lightweight travel lens capable of capturing the vibrancy of a Moroccan market or the stunning architectural details of a major city.
For fast, quiet and accurate focusing, the lens features a ring-type USM autofocus motor that allows full-time manual focusing to keep you in control of the point of focus. To cope with the tough conditions to which many professional photographers subject their kit the lens features improved dust and moisture resistance - this is especially effective when attached to an EOS-1 series camera.
- USM autofocus
A ring-type USM autofocus motor means you can focus quickly, near-silently and with precision. It also provides full-time manual focus so that you can adjust the focus with the focus ring, without first having to switch the lens to manual focus. This allows you to adjust the focus accurately to ensure it is exactly where you want it to be for the most creative control possible.
- Aspheric lens elements
Two types of aspherical lens elements - one ground glass, one glass mold (GMo) - are combined with a single ultra-low dispersion (UD) element to provide high quality, sharp images with the high resolution appropriate to an L series lens.
