Next-generation optical design
The EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM delivers superb image quality throughout its zoom range, thanks to aspherical lens elements and ultra-low dispersion (UD) and super UD glass. Redesigned optics ensure sharpness is maximised across the frame.
Versatile 24-70mm zoom range
The ideal companion for any full-frame EOS camera. Perfect for applications ranging from landscape and travel photography to portraiture and photojournalism.
Shoot in low light conditions
A fast f/2.8 maximum aperture is maintained throughout the zoom range, enabling hand-held low-light shooting in a variety of situations.
L-series build quality
The EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM is robust enough for daily professional use. Weather sealing protects against dust and moisture, while a fluorine-coated front and rear elements are easy to clean.
Aring-type ultrasonic AF motor achieves focus quickly, quietly and accurately. Full-time manual override is available, making it possible to adjust focus without changing focus modes.
A 0.38m closest-focus distance adds to the versatility of the EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM, providing a maximum magnification of 0.21x.
Beautiful background blur
