Overview


The Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM Standard Zoom Lens (Black) is a standard zoom lens, designed for full-frame, Canon EF-Mount DSLR cameras. Though it is designed for full-frame Canon EF DSLRs, it can also be used with APS-C models, where it provides a 38.4-112mm equivalent focal length range. This L-Series zoom ranges from wide-angle to portrait length, & features a constant f/2.8 maximum aperture, which is beneficial when working in difficult lighting conditions, by allowing greater control over your depth of field.


The EF 24-70mm f/2.8 II USM Lens features a sophisticated optical design, which includes two UD Elements, & one Super UD Element, to reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing, while improving color accuracy & clarity in your images. Three aspherical elements are featured, to improve sharpness, by minimizing spherical aberrations & distortion. A Super Spectra Coating was applied to individual lens elements, to control flare & ghosting, resulting in high contrast & neutral color fidelity. A rounded 9-blade diaphragm benefits the use of selective focusing techniques, by producing a pleasing "bokeh" quality in your images. The featured zoom lock is designed to secure the wide end, to maintain a compact physical design, while also protecting the lens when it is not in use. A Ring-Type Ultrasonic Motor & an internal focusing mechanism work together to provide a fast, quiet, & accurate autofocusing performance, as well as full-time manual focus override. The lens is also weather-sealed for protection against elements in difficult weather conditions.

Lens for Treet photography

I primarily bought the Canon 24-70 f/2.8L II USM lens for studio sessions, but it is so versatile that I have started to use it for outdoor photography work as well. The flexibility of this zoom lens is amazing. Now that I use it for street photography, I’m starting to see all the difference between this lens and its predecessor. The most obvious improvement is in the color tones and contrast. It would’ve been nice if it was an IS lens, but all I can say is so far, so good. All the images taken on my tripod are very sharp and rich in colors.

I am a huge fan of Canon EF lenses, and the Canon 24-70 f/2.8L II USM lens is no exception. The lens is heavy but not overly so; pretty easy to handle and work with. However, the outer body feels a little fragile to me, but then it reduces the weight so I can’t complain. I just wish that the filter threads were metal instead of plastic, but the rest is good. As for the performance, the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM lens is true to all its claims. The images I have taken with this lens so far are very crisp, and the color contrast is great.

The color and sharpness that I get with the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM lens is simply mind blowing! I struggled a little with pulling the trigger when I first bought the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8, but soon got the hang of it and I’ve never looked back! This is better than the first version in terms of sharpness and color contrast. I know that a lot of people are let down since this is not an IS lens, but it is not really a big deal for me to be honest.

I am a wedding photographer, and the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM is an integral part of my lens kit. While I mostly use a Canon 50 mm f/1.2 for shooting weddings, the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L comes in really handy for shots that can’t be captured with a 50mm lens. Even though I mostly use the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM lens to shoot weddings, I must say that it is extremely versatile and suited for multiple types of photography. In a nutshell, I love this lens and would recommend this expensive but high-quality beauty to anyone!

Super Sharp Lens

This is such a vast improvement over the first version. It is very sharp at all apertures. The elements in the lens greatly reduce spherical aberration, so now I get superior image quality throughout the zoom range. I can take this lens to the harshest of environments with its weather and moisture sealing. Auto-focusing is so fast with the new high-speed CPU and improved AF algorithms. The color balance is exceptionally good and hardly any ghosting in images. The Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM Lens is super sharp and quick! It is definitely pricey but well worth the money.

The individual pieces of glass that form the overall optical construction. Most lenses have between four and eleven elements to bend the light rays to ensure a perfectly formed image appears on the light sensitive surface, such as a film or CCD. The elements are arranged in groups and may be seen in specification sheets as, for example, 6 elements in 4 groups. That configuration may have two single elements and the other four grouped in pairs.
