The EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM Lens from Canon is optimized for full-frame 35mm sensors, and another entry into Canon's high quality L-series of lenses. It has two Super Ultra-low Dispersion (Super UD) and two standard UD lens elements working together to minimize chromatic aberrations, and reduce color blurring around the edges of your subject. Its two types of aspherical elements combine to help reduce spherical aberration over the entire image area and the full zoom range. Optimized lens coatings help ensure exceptional color rendering while minimizing ghosting.

Its ring-type Ultra Sonic Motor (USM) and high-speed CPU, with optimized AF algorithms, ensure you experience quick, quiet and precise autofocusing whenever you need it. The lens has improved dust and water resistance to protect it from damage outdoors, while fluorine coatings on the front and rear lens surfaces resist fingerprints and smearing. The circular nine-bladed diaphragm delivers beautiful, soft background effects. A zoom lock lever holds the zoom position at the 24mm wide end for safe transporting while attached to an EOS DSLR camera over the shoulder - preventing lens creep.

Hybrid Image Stabilization (IS)
Introducing image stabilization to their 24-70mm L-series lenses, Canon's Hybrid IS provides four stops of effective shutter speed compensation for both types of camera shake when shooting macro photography: angular and shift. This means you can shoot in dimmer conditions, capturing images with shutter speeds up to four stops slower than would otherwise be possible.
Dual UD & Super UD Lens Elements
This lens' optical design utilizes two Super UD and two UD lens elements to minimize chromatic aberration in the edges of your wide-angle shots. It also eliminates color blurring around the edge of your subjects, for images with greater resolution and contrast.
Dual Aspherical Lens Elements
In addition to the UD elements, this lens combines two types of aspherical lenses to reduce spherical aberration and achieve high image quality across both the entire screen area and throughout the full 24-70mm zoom range.
Ring-Type Ultra Sonic Motor (USM)
A ring-type USM and high-speed CPU with optimized AF algorithms enable silent and fast autofocusing to help you focus right on the action.
Minimum Focusing Distance: 1.25'
This lens has a minimum focusing distance of 1.25' (0.38 m) across the entire zoom range, excluding the macro mode.
Macro Mode With 0.7x Magnification
Full macro shooting is possible thanks to the Macro Mode Switch. With up to 0.7x magnification, it is easily accessible with a one-touch switch at the 70mm telephoto end of the zoom range.
Manual Focus Override
In One Shot Autofocus mode manual focus can be applied for exacting precision.
Weather Resistant to Dust & Moisture
This lens is highly resistant to dust and water, allowing you to shoot in harsh conditions when necessary.
Fluorine Coatings Reduce Fingerprints
Fluorine coatings on both the front and rear lens surfaces resist smears and fingerprints.
Zoom Lock Lever
Keep your lens from unintentionally extending, or creeping, when you don't want it to with the Zoom Lock lever. It locks the zoom position at the wide end for safe transporting, when the lens is most compact.
9x Circular Aperture Blades
With nine circular blades, the lens' diaphragm delivers soft, pleasant bokeh background effects.

    I know this has been the "why did Canon make this particular lens" of the year but here is my experience and take: (shooting on the Canon 5D Mark lll)
    I have had a 24-105 F4L since it first came out and have used it for most of my landscape work along with my 17-40L and my longer L series telephotos zooms. It has always been my go to lens for landscapes and my normal walk around lens. I decided to try the 24-70F2.8 ll first . Shot it against the 24-105 and did not find it any sharper in real life tests using the same test subjects I use for all of my new lenses. I also did not like losing the Image stabilization since it would be a go to walk around lens. I also do not need to go to f2.8 for landscapes but it would have been nice for inside low light photos where flash would be a pain or not allowable. But for me I decided I was paying way too much for a stop of light I did not need that much plus losing IS on a go to walk around lens was not that good- especially when the IQ was not any better for me then my 24-105.
    So, I decided to give the new 24-70's one more try, sent back the f2.8 and exchanged it for the 24-70 F4. It has now replaced the 24-105 F4 as my primary landscape and walk around lens. It does shoot sharper edge to edge then the 24-105, does not have the barrel distortion at 24mm and shoots a slightly brighter image. It is also a little shorter and lighter. Although I have a dedicated Macro lens, having the "kinda" macro feature is also handy for a close up you were not prepared for. Do I miss the extra stretch from 70- 105 mm sometimes? Yes, but I have plenty of L zooms from 70 + with me at the same time. Just have to change lenses a little more frequently now.
    My advice to anyone contemplating the 24-70 F4L over the 24-70 F2.8Lll or the 24-105F4L is this: If you shoot primarily outside and have another good quality zoom that goes over 70mm, get the 24-70 F4L. If you shoot primarily outside but do not have a good zoom over 70mm, go with the 24-105. If you shoot primarily indoors and do not need IS and do not mind spending the extra bucks, then the F2.8

    Pros: Light, portable, and beautiful colors compared to 24-70mm I or 24-105mmCons: A tad bit sharper than 24-70mm I or 24-105mm but still not sharp at all. (expect almost same blurriness as 24-70mm I)IS is barely usable and is not as effective as that on other IS lenses.Expect 1-stop less light at 70mm. Not nice for video.Macro is a bit limited.Don't listen to all the hypes from Canon saying that this lens is the second sharpest lens after 24-70mm f/2.8 II. If this is the second sharpest, then third and fourth are sheer garbage. I reget I paid $[$] when it first came out. I keep it for the video use but I wouldn't recommend for photography.

      Great sharpness, superb IS, lightweight. Much more reasonably priced than the 2.8 version and higher quality than the Tamron. Distortion is well controlled. Macro mode is OK, but not something that is a big deal to me.

            I replaced the 24-105 F4 IS L lens with this one and I am so glad that I did. If you have the 70-200 lens, this is the perfect compliment to it. Anything over 70mm I would rather use the 70-200 F2.8 II, so this fills the standard zoom range perfectly. Images are SHARP, much sharper than the 24-105. The color is amazing on my Canon 5D Mark III. This camera and lens combination feel just right. The images are great. The lens is light enough to carry around for the day. Love this lens!

                    Got this lens (and the 70-200mm f4L) for my 60D as a replacement for my Tamron 18-270, which I found to be so-so, especially at the telephoto end. I have been looking at the L lenses for quite a while and finally took the plunge. Glad I did. Much sharper than the Tamron. I use this lens as my primary "walk about" lens and have been very happy with it. Only complaint is that I'm using it with an APS-C "cropped sensor" camera, hence it gives me a slightly narrower field of view. I've had it for about a month and have been extremely satisfied with it.

                    Comments about Canon EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM Lens:

                    I use this lens for every day,walk around purposes. It is quite good for event photography and handles low light well on my 6D. It is part of a two/three lens combination that I typically take on shoots depending on the nature of the activity. While a 24-105 might be more versatile as a travel lens, I generally pair the 24-70 with my 70-300L and do not mind having to swap lenses. I like the pinch lens cap and find the included hood acceptable for most purposes. The image sharpness, contrast and color rendition are superb. The macro feature is easy to use and seems quite effective; the IS works as advertised. Overall I am very pleased with this lens and would recommend it to a friend if it fits their specific requirements.

                    Comments about Canon EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM Lens:

                    I was considering the purchase of the EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM, but grudgingly concluded that image stabilization was more important than a stop of speed and purchased the EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM instead. So far, I am reasonably pleased with the lens. The auto-focus is fast and accurate, and the zoom and focus rings operate very smoothly with just enough resistance. I like that the lens locks at 24mm for carry. I have not formally tested the IS, but recently used the lens to take hand-held photos at a high school graduation in a dimly lit sports arena, without flash (as a test) and at an ISO setting of 1000. The photos looked fine printed at 4x6, though some graininess was noticeable when I zoomed in on the photos in Lightroom (as expected). I have found the macro function difficult to use so far. One needs to turn the zoom ring past 70mm while simultaneously engaging the macro switch (easy) and then set the focus ring within a specified range. If one is not within an apparently narrow range of distance from the subject, the lens will not focus automatically. I hope to get better at this with practice, but do not buy this lens for its macro capability. I have the EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM, which I absolutely love. Overall, I think this lens will work out fine for me, but still would have preferred a F2.8L with IS, or, even better, a 18-70mm F2.8L with IS!

                        The lens was well put together. It had a nice feel to it. I didn't care for the macro because I already have the 100mm lens which performs much better. I felt the lens was rather limited in reach. If you don't already have the macro lens this lens might be a very nice addition.

                          I just purchased the lens and havent used it much yet (reason for 4 stars).
                          Out of the box and on the camera (Canon 5D Mark III) - the lens has some heft, but it's solidly built; the "lock" feature is great (no lens extending when in the down position); image quality appears to be very good.
                          With today's high ISO's available and processing software the f4 has not been an issue thus far.
                          After more use I'll do an update.

                            Great compliment to the 70-200 F 2.8 lense - full spectrum from 24mm - 200mm

                            Quick and precise lense

                            Excellent low light capabilities with IS

                              Used mainly for landscape, wildlife, sightseeing photography. Still too expensive but best option for size, weight, quality and features. Concern for f/4 shooting inside did not pan out since raising iso even to max)gave satisfactory results.

                                      Nice lens, a bit sharper than my 70-200mm f/2.8 (not II) at 70mm. Good carry lens, with less distortion/vignetting than the 24-105 but with arguably a shorter range in exchange. For me a perfect size/weight for carrying on the 6D as an all-purpose lens.

                                        Comments about Canon EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM Lens:

                                        This is my first "L" lens from Canon. I was looking at this and the f/2.8 24-70mm lens for quite some time. After careful review of my photographic style I decided the f/4 24-70 IS would be a better fit for me, not to mention the cost savings. I am completely happy so far. Yes, another stop would be nice but that is the only real benefit that I could see with the f/2.8 lens. I find this lens to be very sharp and it has very good color rendition. The lens is very tolerant to shooting into a light source, flare has not been much of an issue. Image Stabilization is a real plus for me and weighed heavily in my decision. Having a macro capability is an added feature of this lens. I have not been a macro photographer but I have used macro to allow me to get in extra close to my subject a time or two. Bokeh has a pleasing appearance. All in all I am very happy with the lens and have no reservations in giving it my highest recommendation.

                                          I basically traded the older EF 24-70 2.8L for this lens. For me the IS is worth more than the extra stop of light when photographing my young kids. So far my pics are crisp and sharp. Autofocus is fast. Also like the the macro feature. For someone with no macro experience it allows me to dabble in macro photography without buying another lens.

                                          Comments about Canon EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM Lens:

                                          I know this has been the "why did Canon make this particular lens" of the year but here is my experience and take: (shooting on the Canon 5D Mark lll)
                                          I have had a 24-105 F4L since it first came out and have used it for most of my landscape work along with my 17-40L and my longer L series telephotos zooms. It has always been my go to lens for landscapes and my normal walk around lens. I decided to try the 24-70F2.8 ll first . Shot it against the 24-105 and did not find it any sharper in real life tests using the same test subjects I use for all of my new lenses. I also did not like losing the Image stabilization since it would be a go to walk around lens. I also do not need to go to f2.8 for landscapes but it would have been nice for inside low light photos where flash would be a pain or not allowable. But for me I decided I was paying way too much for a stop of light I did not need that much plus losing IS on a go to walk around lens was not that good- especially when the IQ was not any better for me then my 24-105.
                                          So, I decided to give the new 24-70's one more try, sent back the f2.8 and exchanged it for the 24-70 F4. It has now replaced the 24-105 F4 as my primary landscape and walk around lens. It does shoot sharper edge to edge then the 24-105, does not have the barrel distortion at 24mm and shoots a slightly brighter image. It is also a little shorter and lighter. Although I have a dedicated Macro lens, having the "kinda" macro feature is also handy for a close up you were not prepared for. Do I miss the extra stretch from 70- 105 mm sometimes? Yes, but I have plenty of L zooms from 70 + with me at the same time. Just have to change lenses a little more frequently now.
                                          My advice to anyone contemplating the 24-70 F4L over the 24-70 F2.8Lll or the 24-105F4L is this: If you shoot primarily outside and have another good quality zoom that goes over 70mm, get the 24-70 F4L. If you shoot primarily outside but do not have a good zoom over 70mm, go with the 24-105. If you shoot primarily indoors and do not need IS and do not mind spending the extra bucks, then the F2.8

                                            Comments about Canon EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM Lens:

                                            It's the travel, general purpose lens I've been waiting for. When I received the lens I tested it extensively. Very sharp lens. A little heavy but then again it is a professional lens. I didn't need the f 2.8 or the weight and expense of it's big brother. Altogether I'm very satisfied. The rebate didn't hurt either.

                                              Comments about Canon EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM Lens:

                                              What a sleeper. This lens is excellent. Very, very sharp...no vignetting, light weight easy to hold. But what really surprised me is the almost no distortion at 24mm. Even at f4 it focuses quite fast. I must tell this is a great lens and would highly recommend it.
