Canon EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM Lens

Canon's EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM Lens is an advanced zoom lens that is the perfect match for full-frame DSLRs such as the EOS 6D.  Canon packed this lens with features to ensure it will capture incredible images with stunning detail throughout the entire range. It sports two Super Ultra-low Dispersion elements along with two standard Ultra-low dispersion elements which work together in order to reduce the effect of chromatic aberration.  You will enjoy reduced color blurring around the edges with minimal flare and ghosting.  The inclusion of Canon's Ultra Sonic Motor and high-speed CPU, with optimized AF algorithms combine to create an autofocusing that is smooth, silent and precise.  The flourine coating keeps smudges and prints from smearing your optic surfaces and a  the circular nine-bladed diaphragm delivers beautiful, soft bokeh background effects. There is even a zoom lock lever which holds the zoom position at the 24mm wide end for safe transporting while attached to an EOS DSLR camera and carrying over the shoulder, keeping the lens where you intended and eliminating lens creep.  It creates a 84° - 34° angle of view, 1.25' minimum focusing distance and accepts 77mm filters.

The L Series denotes Canon's professional line of lenses.  Though used extensively by non-professionals, these lens have been engineered to the highest of standards.  These luxury lenses incorporate such advanced optical advantages as Super Low Dispersion Glass, Ultra-Low Dispersion Glass, flourite elements and aspherical design elements.  All of these combine to produce reliably incredible images.

Canon L Series lenses feature a fluorine coating on the front and rear surfaces.  This coating helps to greatly reduce smears, smudges or fingerprints ensuring that you will always take impeccable images.

Canon's USM lenses employ a motor powered by ultrasonic waves that produce a quiet, yet high-speed AutoFocus. You can enjoy high performance with low noise in a variety of shooting situations.

The Canon anti-reflective coating is an optical design feature which ensures superior clarity and image brilliance, even in poor or unfavorable lighting conditions.  Canon applies the anti-reflective coating through a special process, layering the lens surface in order to substantially reduce unwanted flare or ghosting.  This process helps to ensure incredibly rich image contrast and true color fidelity. 

Canon's aspherical lens design creates a more complex surface profile.  This helps to greatly reduce spherical and other optical aberrations.  The design further ensures consistent imaging performance throughout the entire focal range, while delivering incredible sharpness up to the periphery of the image. 

Manual focusing means you have all the control at the end of your fingers.  Canon lenses feature a specially designed ergonomic construction that is noticeable at first touch.  The large rotation angle of this lens guarantees precise focusing.  The mechanism moves super smoothly and without extra play, furthering the intuitive interaction along the focal plane.  

The circular aperture produces a natural background blur.  With Canon lenses you can create stunning Bokeh effects, thanks to the finely tuned features and advanced optical design.  By keeping the background intentionally blurred, additional focus is created on the subject of an image.  The uniquely engineered diaphragm blades of this lens, along with the virtually circular aperture, deliver stunning renditions of highlights the back and foreground.

Canon's Low Dispersion technology is engineered to reduce chromatic aberrations, eliminating the tendency of light of different colors to focus to different points at the image plane.  This means your images will come out crisp and clear, with less of a chance of defracting light into an unwanted rainbow of colors.  Take shots exactly like you want, without any flare-up or blurring.

Canon's Hybrid Image Stabilization delivers 4 stops of compensation for shutter speeds.  This is effective for both angular and shift-type camera shakes.  This means you can effectively shoot in low-light conditions when slower shutter speeds would render that impossible.
