The EF24-70mm f/2.8L II USM is a high-performance large-aperture L standard zoom lens with a wide focal-length range. By utilising three aspheric lens elements, a Super UD lens element, and two UD lens elements, magnification-type chromatic aberration at wider angles is corrected thus achieving superior image quality. Sporting a new reduced length, this lens is made all the easier to use with fast yet silent autofocus, a full-time mechanical manual focus, and a circular aperture for beautiful soft-focus images. With minimum focusing distance of 0.38m and magnification of 0.29x, this lens is also perfect for close-ups.
