A professional-quality standard zoom that offers outstanding image quality and a fast f/2.8 aperture throughout its zoom range. This L-series lens has a reputation among professional photographers as being the go-to zoom lens, thanks to it’s sharp optics and ability to be used in almost any environment. The perfect companion to any full-frame EOS camera.
The EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM’s constant f/2.8 aperture throughout the zoom range makes the lens a great low light performer that’s able to make the most of any available ambient light. The fixed aperture also gives you optimum control over depth-of-field. The new 9-bladed diaphragm produces a circular aperture, which helps to achieve beautifully blurred backgrounds with attractive bokeh. This means your subject can stand out against the background, with no distractions.
Featuring the latest advances in optical design, the EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM brings together three aspherical elements to provide the highest possible image quality in a lens of this focal length. Significant reduction in chromatic aberration and reduced colour blur means less time in post production with an edge-to-edge sharpness usually only found in prime lenses.
An aspherical element is a free-curved internal component within your lens that corrects the distortion caused by the curvature of the spherical lens elements.
These components are only found in professional quality lenses.
Aspherical aberration produced with a standard lens can be avoided by using a higher quality lens with additional aspherical elements.
The EF 24-70 f/2.8L II USM has three aspherical elements to separately counteract each of the individual internal aberrations, so your images are exceptionally sharp.
A ring-type ultrasonic autofocus motor means that you can focus quickly, near-silently and with precision. It also provides override manual focus allowing you to stay in control. This helps you to adjust the focus accurately to ensure it is exactly where you want it to be for the most creative control.
Only the best technology and production techniques go into the building of each L-series lens. Part of the prestigious ‘Luxury’ line up, these lenses showcase the very best that Canon have to offer.
The EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM is engineered from the highest quality materials, which makes it robust enough for daily professional use. Weather sealing protects against dust and moisture, while fluorine-coated front and rear elements are easy to clean.

If you recently purchased your first DSLR or mirrorless camera, you probably know it won’t reach its true potential unless you add a few lenses to your basket. Your DSLR purchase could turn into wastage of money if you don’t ever replace the kit lens that came with the camera. Invest in a new lens will certainly bring a huge boost to image quality. Buying a new lens could be intimidating, as you must dive deep into the world of lenses for making an informed purchase. We can always consult with our experts at Ryans either online or physically visiting your nearby Ryans showroom. However, this article aims to help you out with building a greater understanding of lenses.
There are five different parameters that you need to take into consideration while purchasing a lens for your camera. Let’s take a closer look at all these parameters one by one.
Lens Speed is the first thing you need to take into account while purchasing a lens for your DSLR. Lens Speed describes the maximum aperture of the lens. Aperture is a hole within a lens, which allows light to travel into the camera sensor. You can shrink or enlarge the size of the aperture to allow more or less light to reach your camera sensor. It is described as a number with the letter F next to it. The smaller the number the larger the hole and more light can get passed at a time. This means that the shutter speed can be quicker and means the lens is faster.
The maximum aperture of a camera will help you work out several things.
A fast lens for instance with a maximum aperture of f/1.4 is capable of taking shots in a lot darker places than a lens with a maximum aperture of f/4 or f/5.6.
A faster lens will also allow you to take pictures of moving subjects and freeze them better.
Faster lenses let you have a shallower depth of field. This means that when you’re focusing upon a subject the foreground and background will be blurrier. Of course, having a very fast lens means that this can make focusing trickier as your depth of field is very shallow. Of course, you can shoot at a smaller aperture with a fast lens to make your depth of field deeper.
Faster lenses will help with your flash photography too as they capture more ambient light.
Focal length allows you to change the perspective of your shot without having any movement. A shorter focal length, like a 24mm one, will allow you to capture a wider slice of the scene. On the other hand, a longer focal length, such as a 200mm, allows you to get closer to the action. That’s why longer lenses are used for capturing distant objects and shorter lenses are good for capturing landscapes. The focal length of a lens tells you how much it will magnify your subject when photographing it. It will also tell you what kind of angle of view you’ll get.
This is the measurement between the end of your lens and the nearest point that it can focus. It’s particularly useful to know if you’re interested in Macro or close up photography.
Many mirrorless cameras have image stabilization built into the body to help eliminate camera shake. However, this feature is quite rare in DSLRs. If you want stabilization on a camera that doesn’t have it built-in, you have to buy a lens that comes with this feature. Manufacturers use various tags to denote this feature, from Canon’s IS (Image Stabilization) to Nikon’s VR (Vibration Reduction) to Sony’s OSS (Optical Steady Shot).
Stabilization isn’t always necessary for still photography — shooting at a fast shutter speed will also keep things nice and sharp. However, when working in low light at slow shutter speeds, shooting video in any conditions, or using a very long focal length, stabilization is very important. Stabilization is more common in zoom lenses, less so on primes where the wider apertures let you shoot faster shutter speeds.
