The Canon EF 24-105 f / 4.0 L USM lens - specially designed for photography, events, celebrities and travel photography - when you need to have a light and maneuverable lens at hand for high image quality. Canon's L-series lenses are professional-grade waterproof lenses that are comfortable and easy to use for superior image quality. The main advantage of this lens compared to the faster Canon EF 24-70 f / 2.8 L USM is its lighter weight and the presence of an image stabilizer. For situations where it is undesirable to use a flash (to increase the amount of light in the image) - for example, at a wedding - it is better to use the more expensive and fast
Canon EF 24-70 f / 2.8 L USM. The Canon EF 24-105 f / 4.0 L USM uses a ring-shaped ultrasonic drive for fast, near-silent autofocusing. Performance (i.e. focusing speed) is also enhanced by a powerful processor and an advanced AF algorithm. A clear and precise lens retention during torque is responsible for getting the correct focus on the subject on the first try. Full manual focusing is also possible, and the user can carry out it without switching the lens from autofocus mode, just turn the focusing ring. The lens is equipped with an almost perfectly circular convex 8-blade diaphragm, which creates beautiful blurred backgrounds. And in the optical scheme of the lens, elements made of low-dispersion glass are used to eliminate aberrations (primarily chromatic aberrations). Aspherical lenses in the optical design correct spherical aberrations for crisp, high-contrast images throughout the frame.
By refining the Super Spectra multi-layer lens coating and lens shape, Canon has been able to reduce the ghosting and flare that are most common in digital cameras due to reflections from the image sensor. By increasing the absorption of light, coatings reduce the reflective effect of lenses, resulting in bright and clear images in natural colors. An added benefit of the lens is its built-in IS, which allows shutter speeds up to 3 stops slower when shooting. If you are choosing a lens for travel or an important event, we do not recommend comparing the Canon EF 24-105 f / 4.0 L IS USM with non-L-series lenses (for example, Canon EF 24-85 f / 3.5-4.5 or Canon EF 28- 135 f / 3.5-5.6 IS USM) with all the external similarity of the focal length ranges, due to the difference in the manufacturing class. This lens is best suited for travel or events where a flash is supposed to be used for illumination and you need to have a wide range of focal lengths so as not to miss the moment - for example, corporate parties, weddings, birthdays, family gatherings. Despite the fact that the focal length range of the lens covers the portrait range, for portrait shooting we still recommend paying attention to the “fixes”: Canon EF 85 f / 1.8 USM or Canon EF 85 f / 1.2 L USM or similar.
