Canon EF 24 70mm f2.8L II USM zoom lens

With the continuous increase in the demand for high image quality lens, Canon recently introduced the new EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM, a newer version of the popular EF 24 – 70mm f/2.8 USM zoom lens.

The new EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM zoom lens features a redesigned high precision optical system which includes one Super Ultra-low Dispersion lens element and two Ultra-low lens elements. The combination of these three UD elements reduces chromatic aberrations and color blurring and delivers sharp and high contrast images.

The mechanical component of this lens has been enhanced to deliver zoom durability and greater shake and shock resistance within the lens barrel. This zoom lens is fitted with a ring-type Ultrasonic motor that works with a high performance CPU and superior AF algorithms that guarantees fast and ultra-responsive autofocusing. It also features dust-proof, drip-proof construction for extreme shooting conditions and weighs 145 grams lighter and 1 inch shorter in length compared to its predecessor, providing an improved usability, mobility and convenience.

This lens is truly remarkable with its improved features which deliver a new level in producing high quality images that will surely meet the stringent requirements of professional photographers and multimedia professionals.
