Canon EF 24-70mm f2.8L II USM Standard Zoom Camera Lens, Model 5175B002

Meeting the ever-increasing demands on image quality that digital photography brings, the redesigned EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM is the latest update to the acclaimed L-Series of EF optics, re-establishing a new standard for superb optics, high-end durable construction and performance in professional zoom lenses. A standard focal length zoom lens, it features a large aperture throughout its focal length. Featuring the latest advances in optical lens design, it utilizes 1 Super UD lens element and 2 UD lens elements that help minimize chromatic aberration in the periphery at wide-angle as well as reduced color blurring around the edges of the subject. In addition, 2 types of aspherical lenses are combined to help reduce spherical aberration over the entire image area as well as through the full zoom range. Optimized lens coatings also help ensure exceptional color balance while minimizing ghosting. The lens is also equipped with a circular 9-blade diaphragm for beautiful, soft backgrounds. A ring-type USM and high-speed CPU with optimized AF algorithms enable silent and fast autofocusing. Built for the rigors of professional use as well as to meet the increased number of shots available with digital photography, it's constructed with improved dust sealing and water resistance while fluorine coatings on the front and rear lens surfaces help reduce soiling, smears and fingerprints. A zoom lock lever locks the zoom position at the wide end for safe transporting while attached to an EOS DSLR camera over the shoulder.

This is my first experience with a 24-70 variant... Coming from the 24-105L, the difference is quite significant. This lens has incredible resolution at 24mm edge to edge on my 5D Mark III. Even wide open, the microcontrast is simply amazing. The images look better wide open than the 24-105L does at f/8. It is THAT good. The lens does soften a tad at 70mm. It is still extremely sharp, but not exactly to the level of 24mm. To give a comparison, I find the 24-70 II at 70mm similar in sharpness to the magnificent 70-200 II at 70mm. You would be hard pressed to find any difference in image quality. Build quality is excellent. Most of the exterior is engineering plastic versus metal or other materials. Still feels extremely high quality and the weight reduction from the previous version is welcomed. The only downfall with the lens is the lack of IS and the cost without it. Not exactly required for everybody, it is a very nice feature on the long end of the zoom range. For the price of this lens, IS should have been included. I am assuming Canon had good reason to omit IS for image quality benefits. As far as copy variation, the first copy of this lens I had to return due to a decentered lens element causing softness on the right side of the frame at 24mm... My second copy I am currently using appears to be perfect. Other image quality attributes this lens offers include beautiful 18-point sunstars when conditions are right. CA levels are extremely low if not non-existent. Flare is well controlled. There is quite a bit of light-falloff (vignetting) but is easily corrected in post if need be. The lens also features very quick AF, one of the fastest I have used honestly.. As with the 70-200 II, I really like the locking lens hood. The zoom lock is also a very nice feature as zoom lenses have the tendency to creep with heavy use over time. There is no zoom creep so far, but time will tell how the internals will hold up to heavy use in this case. I am extremely impressed by this lens overall. It has prime lens image quality (if not better in some cases) with the versatility of a zoom. I highly recommend this lens.

An Expensive Disappointment

Given the price of this lens, the lack of Image Stabilization is an unforgivable omission. If you read the Canon propaganda, it says that they skipped I.S. on this lens in the name of image quality; that adding I.S. would have somehow made it worse. I’m not buying that argument. I own (and LOVE) the fabulous EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM â€" and Image Stabilization definitely didn’t hurt THAT lens. I think my 24-70 f/2.8L II is every bit as sharp as my 70-200, but what makes the 70-200 such a joy to use is the 4-stops of shake correction that you get from its phenomenal (mk. II) I.S. system… That, plus it’s constant max. aperture of f/2.8 makes the 70-200 SO versatile; you can take handheld shots with it in (VERY low light) situations where common sense says that a telephoto zoom lens simply shouldn’t work. I can’t speak for others here, but what I was really hoping for with the 24-70 f/2.8L II was a companion piece to my 70-200; a lens that picks up at 70mm and goes down to some reasonable wide-angle figure (24mm is fine), that offers the same image quality AND PERFORMANCE as my 70-200. Canon seems to have nailed the image quality part with the 24-70 f/2.8L II, but without Image Stabilization, the lens fails dismally in terms of matching the 70-200’s low-light performance. A “general purposeâ€� zoom lens that is no good in low light won’t be very useful to most. I did some side-by-side testing of the 24-70 f/2.8L II against my trusty 24-105 f/4L IS, and I saw blur from camera shake at f/2.8 with the 24-70, but the same shots in the same light at f/4 (with I.S.) were just fine on my MUCH cheaper 24-105. When the 24-105 seriously outguns the 24-70 in low light, that’s a huge embarrassment. Canon needs to develop an Image Stabilized version of the 24-70 f/2.8L II very soon â€" even if there is a miniscule, theoretical reduction in image quality. Those who are utterly insane about image quality tend to use primes anyway. Those of us who buy zooms (particularly in this “general purposeâ€� focal length range) are willing to trade a bit of image quality for versatility. Unless Canon cuts the price of this lens by about 50%, I’d say don’t waste your money on it. Get the 24-105 if you want a true “general purposeâ€� lens â€" it has half again as much reach as 24-70, has Image Stabilization, and can be had for about a third of the price of the 24-70 f/2.8L II. Image quality of the 24-105 isn’t as good as the 24-70, but it’s still very good. For what you have to pay, the 24-70 isn’t several magnitudes better than the 24-105. I’m very underwhelmed my 24-70 and seriously disappointed with Canon. What were they thinking here?!

Awesome standard zoom


from Phoenix, AZ

I shoot many fast paced events where timing is key to capture moments as they unfold in a natural way without subjects realizing I'm there. The 24-70 II fits those needs completely with fast, accurate autofocus, sharp rendering, punchy images and a reasonable zoom range that gets me just close enough to capture action as it unfolds. I've been quite pleased with the performance of this lens on the event floor and noticed an increase in my keeper rate versus my previous Sigma lens. This lens really has held its own in low light events paired with the 6D.


Sharpest Lens


from Edina, MN, United States

I am somewhat new to canon lens but I decided to pick this lens up for a upcoming trip. After testing this lens I can say that this is one of the sharpest lens I have ever used. The weight is not too much, not to the point where it is too heavy but it is perfect, I would take this over the 24-105 II usm any day.

One of the finest


from Khazaad

The build quality of this lens is apparent the moment you hold it. It's heavier than it looks and feels refreshingly solid. The resistance on the manual focus ring is satisfyingly smooth requiring no more or less force than you'd ever want for tuning quickly and precisely at the same time. The heft of the lens is most apparent when zooming and becomes more obvious when it's pointed upwards (gravity and stuff). The wonderful thing is how the lens manages to hold it's place when pointed DOWNward. Although there is a zoom lock, after a year and a half of use I have yet to experience any lens drop even after traveling with the camera shouldered for long walks. The AF is super snappy and uncanny in its accuracy especially when using center point focus. On a 6D body, it is impressively reliable in low-light situations. Only the flattest, no-contrast circumstances seem to offer any AF issues. Image quality is superb and more likely to be bottle-necked by the camera its on rather than by the lens itself. It still blows my mind that even under the worst circumstances chromatic aberration never seems to existent. Truly it's the Excalibur of standard zoom lenses.


An excellent lens... needs an upgrade


from Minneapolis, MN

An excellent lens. However has chromatic aberrations that are very apparent. It would be nice for Canon to come out with an improved version that corrects this.


Nothing Better in a 24-70 2.8


from Missouri, United States

I've been using this since Sept. of 15 & my goodness! I've had the tammy 3 different times but the softness was oh so present on each & it shot better with VC off, so I figured why not spend the bucks & try the Canon & guess what I haven't regretted it one bit:) There is nothing per dollar in this range that will beat it bar none:)) Love it!!!!!

from Burien, WA, United States

The savings for a refurbished over a new lens were not that much which gave me second thoughts. Those concerns were enhanced when the package arrived. It had a big battery warning sign to the shipper on the outside even though it contained no battery. The lens was enclosed in a box for a point and shoot camera, even though this was an EF lens. The lens was wrapped in brown paper and contained generic instructions for all Canon lenses.

Excellent Lens!


from Billings, MT, United States

Verified Buyer

I bought this lens about 8 months ago and it's been hard to take it off my camera ever since. Previously, my go-to lens was the 70-200mm 2.8 IS L series but I wanted something wider that would give me equal image quality and the 24-70 has not disappointed me yet.


Simply one of the finest standard zooms available


from Undisclosed

The build quality of this lens is apparent from the moment you set hands on it. The manual zoom function is solid, smooth, and consistent though it's auto focus ability is what I find truly exceptional. It's very fast, almost punchy and superbly accurate. I'm not overly familiar with other lenses of this same breed but I can see the picture quality is outstanding. The absence of any chromatic aberration with this lens is one of the easiest ways to comprehend it's capabilities. The 24-70mm focal range of this lens is ideal but coming from a 1.6 crop camera I was saddened to realize how much zoom I had actually lost. (live and you learn, right)


Series II L Lenses


from Oregon

I recently went on a shoot with Canon where they were allowing us to use the recently released "L" Series II lenses. While I was very happy with my series I lenses the difference in sharpness was incredible. Since I am planning on upgrading to the new Series 5ds when it is available in June I was sure that I would need to upgrade to the series II lenses. I've now made the transition to the 16-35, 24-70, 100-400 lenses in anticipation of the new 5ds body. These lenses are just INCREDIBLE. Very, very sharp! Not inexpensive, but just like computers "Garbage IN, Garbage OUT".

Great lens. Very Sharp, ...


from Los Angeles, CA.

Great lens. Very Sharp, but over priced and no IS. I'm considering going third-party lenses. I cannot imagine the PRICE of the future 24-70 F2.8 L USM "IS" "I" or "II" when it comes out. Make the lenses more affordable so people won't go anywhere else to get them. You are loosing big time on this issue!
