Canon EF 24mm f/2.8 IS USM Overview

Providing a wide field of view in a compact package, the Canon EF 24mm f/2.8 IS USM is a versatile wide-angle prime characterized by its fast performance and image stabilized design. The optical design utilizes one aspherical element to reduce spherical aberrations and distortion for high sharpness, and a Super Spectra coating has also been applied to suppress flare and ghosting for increased contrast and color accuracy.

Wide-angle 24mm f/2.8 lens is designed for full-frame Canon EF-mount DSLRs, however can also be used with APS-C models where it provides a 38.4mm equivalent focal length.
Bright f/2.8 maximum aperture benefits working in low-light conditions and also affords control over depth of field for working with selective focus techniques.
One aspherical element helps to suppress spherical aberrations and distortion for a high degree of sharpness and accurate rendering.
Super Spectra coating has been applied to individual elements to minimize ghosting and flare for greater contrast and color neutrality when working in strong lighting conditions.
An Optical Image Stabilizer helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake by up to four shutter speed stops to better enable working in low-light conditions and with slower shutter speeds.
A ring-type Ultrasonic Motor (USM), along with a rear focusing system, is employed to deliver fast and precise autofocus performance as well as full-time manual focus override.
Rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing out of focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.

I'm considering buy this lens for my 80D for lighweight street photography and to have a wider angle for video that is stabilized. I have seen reviews on Youtube that demonstrate how loud the autofocus is and that the onboard mic will pick it up; however, I was wondering if anyone has had any experience using an exrernal mic mounted on to the camera and if it picked up the sound from the autofocus motor?

question

Anyone using this with the Sigma MC-11? Does it retain the Image Stabilization ?
Asked by: dan
We assume you mean to use this lens with the Sigma MC-11 on a Sony E mount camera. Sigma does not support or guarantee the use of it's mount with lenses other than Sigma lenses. That being said, customers have reported great success using the MC-11 and their Canon lenses on Sony cameras. Since the MC-11 passes through electronic information and powers the focus motor, the IS is also expected to work.
