Canon 24-70mm f/4.0 overview

  • 1Description

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.

    Canon 24-70mm f/4.0 reviews

    EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM Lens is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 203.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very versatile 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Walking around lens I upgraded my camera to a 7D Mark 2 and decided to purchase this lens as my main lens for it instead of getting the kit. I know many people opt for the 24-105mm as a walk around lens but I felt that would be too heavy to carry all the time. I already had the EF-S 11-22mm lens for wide angles, and the 24-70mm range (38-112mm effective) is a nice mid range. I shoot landscapes and architecture mostly, and so far I'm very happy with my images. I haven't found the f/4 to be a limitation as I mostly shoot outdoors between sunrise and sunset. I make and sell handicrafts, and the macro option works well for photographing my work so I can get away without a dedicated macro lens.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as sharp as expected. Dark at 70mm 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than 24-70 f/2.8 I and 24-105 I really love this lens. I got it to replace my 24-70 f/2.8 L (classic) and it has better IQ than the 2.8 lens. But what I really like is that way it transformed the handling of the 5D Mark III. The 2.8 just was a big chuck of glass on the 5D - it overwhelmed it. The f/4 IS balances on the 5D Mark III very nicely. It really makes a huge difference. And the IQ with this lens and the IS are great - much better than the 2.8 and the 24-105 f/4 IS is not in the same ballpark. Great lens. I am really glad I got this instead of the f/2.8 II version.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Alternative to EF 24-70mm, f/2.8 The sharpness is excellent at all f/stops. Very little distortion at any focal length. Image Stabilizer effective to at least 4 f/stops. I can get no shake, no blur at 1/2 sec. exposure and 24mm focal length, if I am well supported in a chair! Very little lens flare or ghosts. However, the macro feature is not that good because one has to focus within 2-3 inches of the subject at max. magnification and that creates a shadow on the subject from the lens. Otherwise, this is an excellent lens. Any chromatic aberration and peripheral darkening are corrected by my Canon 6D, do I won't comment on this.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Usual standards of Excellence I just bought the Canon 5dsr and needed a good wide angle zoom lens to take advantage of the high resolution in this camera. The EF 24-70 was up to the task. In addition to the exceptional clarity, this lens has a macro capability that allows me to get extremely close to a subject. I bought this to replace an 18-135 zoom. Losing the 6mm at the wide end has been barely noticeable, but losing the 65 mm at the other end is something else. That would be the only thing I'd change, but I have to admit, the macro feature and the overall clarity have been worth it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new walk about lens As with all glass purchases I do a lot of research before I make a purchase. I had a 17-40 earlier that I lent to a friend and have not seen it again. I that lens as my primary lens and have missing an option for my everyday lens. It is even better because it is a higher quality lens, it has a longer reach and the macro feature is a very nice added feature. While I have only had it for a couple of weeks I am very impressed. The locking feature is also a plus for wondering around the paths and trails. I hope to compliment this with the addition of a 70-200 in the future.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very fine lens for landscape photography I purchased this lens to take to Patagonia for an excursion. I did my due diligence and looked around and finally decided to buy this full-frame lens even though I was taking a Canon D70 with me. After shooting several thousand images in a little over two weeks, I DO NOT REGRET MY DECISION. I know what I see, not what the technical specs tell this non-engineer. Look at the photos below as proof. This lens is sharp from corner to corner and it responded very well to my Circular Polarizing filter, which I kept on the lens at all times. Yes, it's more expensive than most but the money is well worth it. I would have felt very badly if I had saved a couple hundred dollars and found that my photos were not what I expected. The photos have been processed in Photoshop Elements 14.
