EF 24-105mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM
Here’s a totally new and affordable standard zoom lens for full-frame EOS cameras — a perfect match for EOS 6D users, for instance — and a great way to step-up to a completely new and modern standard lens for any EOS shooter. Optically, it’s nearly as sharp as its 24-105mm f/4 L-series predecessor, as well as lighter and with more effective Image Stabilization. It’s almost two different lenses, depending upon the camera it’s mounted to: ultra-wide to portrait-tele on a full-frame camera, and on an APS-C camera (EOS Rebel, 7D, etc.), it’s equivalent to a 38–168mm lens that covers from semi-wide to long portrait telephoto.
- Image quality rivals more expensive L-series lenses: advanced 17-element design, highlighted by one UD-glass and two Aspheric lens elements
- 4-stop Image Stabilization shake correction is built-in — makes this f/4 lens supremely practical in many low-light, hand-held situations
- STM (Stepping Motor) used for AF: smooth, quiet and effective AF for normal shooting; powerful yet super-smooth video AF when used with Canon EOS cameras compatible with Movie Servo AF
- Good close-focus performance: minimum focus 1.3 feet; max. magnification 0.3x (1/3 life-size; fill the fame with a subject 4.8 x 3.2 inches (121x81mm) in size
