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


As the Canon EF 24-70mm f/4 L IS USM Lens hits the streets, Canon has more 50mm prime lenses in its lineup than it has full frame general purpose zoom lenses - four vs. three.I am omitting from my count the large, heavy EF 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6 L IS USM...

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


If your demands don't require a fixed f/2.8 zoom lens, the Canon EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM will reward you with sharp images and a useful zoom range.

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


Built-in stabilisation and a macro mode are featured in this lighter, less expensive alternative to the EF 24-70mm ƒ/2.8L USM lens.

The compact size and relatively light weight of Canon's EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM lens make it an attractive option for wedding photographers and those who cover social events. It could also be handy for landscape photography when used with Canon's 'full...

Great Lens


Was on the fence about shelling out this much $ but it was totally worth it. Lens is great -- lighter than the previous version. Image quality is really stunning -- super sharp and colors pop. I use it mainly for shooting live events -- great in...

Great Lens


I purchased this lens for my trip to Boston. It is such a nice lens to be coupled with my Canon 7D. I really enjoyed the consistent quality output from this lens.

Awesome lens. Im glad I made the leap.


I have tried most the 24-70 lenses that would fit the Canon mount, but haven\'t found anything that I was happy with. I mostly do available light on my wedding photography so it is important for me to have a zoom that is as sharp wide open and focuses...

Expensive, heavy, and totally worth it!


If you are considering this lens as an upgrade, do it sooner rather than later. If you are thinking that it's too expensive, and a lessser lens will work 'just as well' you are wrong.

This lens takes razor sharp pictures in every situation. Low light, sports, portraits, and anything else. I had been using the 75-300 IS F/4.5-5.6 Canon lens, but was having difficulty with school gyms and their low light. This lens blows it out of the...

This lens is heavy. And expensive. But the quality is unmatched, and the images it produces are outstanding

Consumer review by:

Yes, its worth it.


It is heavy. Like really, really heavy. While you don't need a monopod with its excellent IS, your arms will be begging you for one.

Amazing clarity. AF is insanely fast and accurate. Built like a brick s**thouse

You can't blame your lens for lousy pics anymore

Excellent Lens from Canon


I upgraded to this lens from Canon's 70-200mm non-IS lens, and honestly, there is a world of difference. The pictures are extremely clear, and I love the Image Stabilizer. I took a video from the back of a small coffee shop, with my 60D and this lens...

It is quite expensive, but it was totally worth it to me

Best Lens Yet


Fast autofocus ; Great sharpness ; IS works wonders in low light ; New hood is an upgrade from old version
