Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L USM Overview

A truly versatile wide-angle zoom featuring an advanced optical design and constant f/4 maximum aperture, the Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L USM Lens is a member of the esteemed L-series of lenses designed for full-frame EOS DSLRs. One Super UD element and one UD element offer a significant reduction in chromatic aberrations while four aspherical elements help to minimize distortions throughout the zoom range and provide consistent edge-to-edge sharpness and illumination.

Ideally suited for landscape and architectural photography, this lens covers ultra-wide to wide-angle perspectives and backs up its versatile zoom range with sophisticated optical components and intuitive handling.

In regard to focusing performance, a ring-type Ultrasonic Motor offers fast, smooth, and near-silent autofocus, which is further benefitted by full-time manual focus operation and an internal focusing design. The lens is both water and dust-resistant, and fluorine coatings have also been applied to the front and rear elements to protect against fingerprints and smudges from affecting image quality.

Wide-angle zoom 11-24mm f/4 lens is compatible with full-frame Canon EF-mount DSLRs, as well as APS-C-sized models where it will provide a 17.6-38.4mm equivalent focal length range.
Constant f/4 maximum aperture offers consistent performance and light transmission throughout the zoom range.
One Super Ultra Low Dispersion and one ultra-low dispersion element help to significantly reduce chromatic aberrations for improved clarity and color accuracy.
Four aspherical elements help to minimize distortions throughout the zoom range in order to maintain edge-to-edge sharpness and illumination.
Both a Subwavelength Coating (SWC) and an Air Sphere Coating (ASC) have been applied to lens elements to reduce backlit flaring and ghosting for maintained light transmission and high contrast in strong lighting conditions.
A ring-type Ultrasonic Motor (USM), along with an internal focusing system, high-speed CPU, and optimized AF algorithms, are employed to deliver fast, precise, and near-silent autofocus performance as well as full-time manual focus override.
As a member of the esteemed L-series, this lens is sealed against dust and moisture for working in inclement environmental conditions.
Protective fluorine coating has been applied to the front bulbous element to resist fingerprints and smudges and to make cleaning significantly easier.
Lens's design accepts rear insert-type gelatin filters, which are cut-to-size and inserted behind the rear lens element.

This lens is truly superior. It's heavy, for sure, but we'll worth the stronger biceps and triceps that you'll develop from using it. Just make sure you keep it really clean, since it is a bit of a dust magnet.

Spectacular lens

I bought this originally with the intention of using it for my real estate business. I ended up using it more for creative photography and landscapes since I use my TS-E 17mm and TS-E 24mm lenses for that mostly. So back to this lens. To be able to get so close and still be able to capture a scene that would otherwise be hidden behind trees if I had to step backwards just a few feet is priceless. To be able to focus on an item in the foreground and let the lens diminish everything behind it is magic. Its a nice alternative to using bokeh to separate something from the background but only works in certain situations. Using this ultra wide is great for situational photos to tell a story or in really tight spaces. It’s also great for cropped sensor videos like the Canon 5d Mark IV. Yes at 11mm it real does some wicked things, stretching the objects from the parts closest to the camera and stretching the farther parts into oblivion. Looking down at your feet through this lens at 11mm makes it look like you stepped into an event horizon and you are suffering from some serious spaghettification, looking at a face and it turns them into a cross between Dobbie the House Elf from Harry Potter and Felonious Gru from Despicable Me. Obviously this lens is not intended for portraits. What it is intended for it excels at. It’s a cool lens if you need 11mm but it’s also autofocus and has everything from 11-24mm! This is like having several ultrawide primes in the bag. There is nothing else like it. The lens is well made like other “L” glass. The beautiful front element is protected only by the non removable petal hood. I bought this with the FotodioX WonderPana FreeArc XL Core Unit Kit for Canon 11-24mm Lens with 186mm Slim Circular Polarizer Filter and the results are amazing. The polarizing filter really helps protect the front element and is awesome for shooting water and especially for real estate, for those pesky glossy countertops and tables.

Expensive, But worth it.

Beautiful lens with clean lines and sharp image. Works really well on my Komodo, even the AF.

Real Estate Photographers Dream

If you're serious about taking real estate photos, this lens is the perfect choice. I've used the 16-35mm 2.8 canon lens for real estate photo for over 5 years. The 11-24mm give me more flexibility for interior shots that I couldn't achieve with the 16-35mm. This lens is heavy but ounce for ounce out performs the 16-35mm. Corner to corner it's sharp without any noticeable chromatic aberrations or distortions. I highly recommend this for serious photographers who can handle the price for this lens.

Great lens for action sports to get up in the action close/personal & cinematic. Also great to show everything wide that no other lens will get you.

Best of the best wide angle lense in all senses of the word. I always wanted Canon to find a way of using filters which I saw very remote, but when I got my R5 Canon made possible with the Drop-in Filter Mount Adapter EF-EOS R. Good going Canon!!!

Yes it can for wide areas, although I have had problems with reflections indoors from ceiling lights bouncing around inside the lens and creating a lot of flare sometimes.

The Canon EF 11-24mm F/4.0 lens I just purchased ...

The Canon EF 11-24mm F/4.0 lens I just purchased from BandH has a small thin pile of dust about the size of a piece of corn on the external surface of the front glass near the tip. Is this normal for a brand new lens right out of the retail box upon receiving it? The dust was easy enough to wipe off with Zeiss lens tissues and the glass does not show any sign of scratch by naked eyes. No dust on the internal side of the glass as far as my eyes can tell. Any advice and input will help my expectation of a brand new professional lens.
Asked by: Rong
While the Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L USM Lens is a professional lens, as it is also mass-produced in a factory, every-so-often there may be a minute chance of dust or other slight imperfection(s) that may be on the lens. If the dust or item was simply able to wipe off, there may be no other issue with the lens, and as long as the lens performs correctly as designed and you see no other imperfections or issues when testing the lens, the lens should be okay for usage. However, do note we do have a 30-Day Return Policy on the purchase of the Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L USM Lens (subject to the terms/conditions listed on the Return Policy link on the bottom of our website), so if you are not happy with the lens for whatever reason, you may return the lens for an exchange or refund by contacting our Customer Service Department.

question

Will this lens work on my Canon EOS 40D camera?
Asked by: Candido E.
Any L lens will work with a 40D. With the crop factor of that body sensor the 11-24 will turn into a 18-35(more or less), which seems a great waste of the money paid for this lens.

Yes, but only if your Canon film camera has an EOS EF mount. If it is older and has the Canon FD mount than that will not work.

You can just buy gel filters and cut them to fit.https://<a href= http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/search?atclk=Rectangular+Sizes_Gel+3x3%22&ci=114&N=4026728350+4252409998 target= _blank >www.bhphotovideo.com/c/search?atclk=Rectangular+Sizes_Gel+3x3%22&ci=114&N=4026728350+4252409998</a>
