Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM - The Canon EF 24-70mm f / 2.8L USM lens is one of the best fast, versatile, stock zoom lenses for Canon EOS film and SLR cameras.
This model replaces the very popular Canon EF 28-70 f / 2.8L USM lens from 1993.
The optical design includes 2 aspherical lenses and one ultra-low dispersion glass lens, which positively affects color, contrast and minimizes aberrations. The pictures are very bright, saturated in color, with good detail throughout the frame. There are quite noticeable drops in resolution at the corners of the frame at a wide angle.
Built-in upgraded ring-type ultrasonic motor (USM) makes focusing fast and quiet. Focusing - internal, the rear lens unit moves. Switching to manual focusing is possible at any time by simply turning the focusing ring.
The front of the barrel of the lens does not rotate when focusing, which makes it easier to use special attachments, as well as gradient and polarizing filters.
The Canon EF 24-70mm f / 2.8L I USM lens has a very convenient range of focal lengths (from wide angle to porter range) and is suitable for most types and genres of shooting, especially where speed is needed. A very good travel option. Great for filming with modern DSLRs.
The lens has rather large dimensions (especially with a hood) and weight.
Compatible hood: EW-83F.
