    Features


    Compatible with select Canon cameras

    Can be used with most Canon DSLR cameras.

    24–70mm focal length

    Midrange is great for many subjects from people to landscapes.

    f/4 maximum aperture

    With a fixed aperture, adjust the focal length without affecting exposure.

    One-touch full macro shooting

    Macro Mode Switch with up to 0.7x magnification and a minimum focusing distance of 0.7'.

    Hybrid 4-Stop optical image stabilization

    Good for handheld work because it compensates against camera shaking. Permits utilizing slower shutter speeds (up to 4 stops slower) than without image stabilization.

    Effectively corrects chromatic aberration, like blurriness and color fringing, for excellent image quality throughout the zoom range.

    Lock the zoom position at the wide end for safe transporting while attached to a camera.

    1.25' minimum focusing distance

    Accommodates 72mm filters

    Pros

    Cons

    • If this lens were priced at around $800-900 that would be fair, as it is currently priced, it is very expensive and not an excellent value for the money, but it is also very well built and very useful and a very, very good lens, my rating is actually 4.5 stars but there are no halvsies on this site so there it is.CAtchison

      A Very Good Lens

      Posted
      CAtchison

      First off, I have shot extensivly with this lens and its' big brother, the 24-70 f2.8 L II, the latter being INCREDIBLE, the images are so sharp from the f2.8 II version that you can cut yourself. Having said that this lens is not at all a bad lens, it is, in fact quite good, however it will always be compared to the f2.8 II version and when you do that the f2.8 wins every time. The quality of images coming from this lens is excellent to outstanding, where the 2.8 II is outstanding to incredible. This lens is well built, has image stabilization which helps ALOT in handheld situations, a focal length is very useful and a klunky macro mode that I have yet to use as I have dedicated macro lenses that are sharper. I have no doubt that this lens will spend alot of time on my camera this Summer as over the past few weeks I have already gotten some outstanding images using it, however for the price I was hoping for more. If this lens were priced at around $800-900 that would be fair, as it is currently priced, it is very expensive and not an excellent value for the money, but it is also very well built and very useful and a very, very good lens, my rating is actually 4.5 stars but there are no halvsies on this site so there it is.

      I highly recommend this lens. I own a Canon EOS M3 (mirrorless) and have the kit 18-55mm, 50mm F1.8 STM, and added the 24-70mm F4 to the set. My search for a zoom was filtered down to the 24-105mm and 24-70mm F4 (24-70mm F2.8 was out of my price point). Ended up with the 24-70mm F4 after lots of research. picture quality is excellent and solid bokeh. Slightly smaller than 24-105, which I appreciate, especially since I'm using the lens on a small mirroless body. It's a bit large and heavy on the mirrorless but definitely worth adding to the collection. Next lens will be a wide body zoom.

      Great lense if you can't afford the f/2.8

      This is a great lens. I'm reestablishing myself as a photographer after some personal time away and working on rebuilding my lens collection. Having used this original 24-70 f/2.8, this lens is very comparable in quality. If you don't need the extra stop of light, this is great lens choice. As an added bonus, it has a macro mode. If you've ever wanted to explore the macro world, this lens would serve great as an "all purpose" lens.

      before I placed order for 24-70 F4 lens, I struggled with the following lens: 24-70 F2.8 - too expensive but highest performance,overweight 24-105 F4 24-70 F4 I likes its features such as: MACRO funtion, IS feature Lightweight and upon most occasions,I take photo outside for landscape,portrait. so finally I selected the 24-70 F4 lens.

      I was in search of a high quality lens for my canon DSLR. I wanted something that I could carry on hikes and would be compact and versatile. It is a good overall lens and well built. It has survived 2 overnight trips and 6 day hikes. It has provided some outstanding photos. Once on sale it is a bit more easier to swallow price wise.

      Very pleased with the lens, which is my 1st upscale lens after the standard EFS 18-55mm that came with Canon T3i camera. Very solid construction, when compared to the plastic EFS 18-55mm.

      The family and individual portraits that I have taken have been perfect. Everyone has raved about them. The IS on this lens is my favorite part! I can be moving around, when following a newly walking baby and still capture them perfectly.

      It worth the money. IS is very useful with a hand handled and the quality of the lens is awesome! With $200 Canon rebate until the end of May, It is an incrediable value too.

      Say what you might, the launch of the Canon EF 24–70 mm f/4L IS USM was a huge surprise. The EF 24-105 f/4L IS USM model has been available on the market for some years at that time and it enjoyed a very favourable opinion so presenting anFull Review

      Canon EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM Lens Review
      As the Canon EF 24-70mm f/4L 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/3.5-5.6L ISFull Review

      Canon EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM Review
      Canon made a smart decision to offer a lower-priced alternative to its 24-70mm ƒ/2.8, in order to give Canon shooters of the more casual or economical nature a way to stay true to the brand name. Unfortunately the lens' performance at 50mm standsFull Review
