An everyday lens that's anything but ordinary
Canon's 24-105mm f/4L IS II USM lens is perfect for nearly any occasion. For travel and event photography, the ability to go from expansive wide-angle shooting to tight close-ups at a moment's notice is indispensable. This versatile zoom could easily become the lens you keep on your camera at all times. It works equally well for shooting landscapes, portraits, and everything in between.
High-performance optics for clear, sharp photos
A constant f/4 maximum aperture throughout the zoom range ensures your images will be consistently well-exposed by allowing you to change focal lengths without having to adjust your exposure settings once you've dialed them in. Specialized lens elements and coatings reduce lens flare and improve contrast and clarity for tack-sharp photos with accurate color rendering and minimal distortion. The lens's 10-blade circular aperture gives you super-smooth, natural-looking defocused background highlights, drawing all the attention to your subject.

More details on the Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II USM
Overview: This Canon EF24-105mm f/4L IS II USM is a standard zoom lens that covers a wide range of focal lengths from wide angle to mid telephoto. The lens features a built-in Image Stabilizer (IS), as well as an Ultrasonic Motor (USM).
Lens Construction: The lens is constructed of 17 lens elements in 12 groups, including 4 glass-molded (GMo) aspherical lenses on 5 surfaces for excellent overall resolving power. Compared to the previous version, this lens delivers better peripheral brightness and reduced distortion for clearer still photos and videos.
Lens Coatings: The front and rear lens surfaces are coated with non-stick fluorine to help reduce smears and fingerprints. This helps prevents dust, water, oil, and other surface residue from sticking to the lens, and allows you to quickly and easily wipe the lens clean without the use of solvents. In addition, Air Sphere Coating (ASC) on the lens elements help to combat flare, ghosting, and reflections with reduced aberrations.
Image Stabilizer (IS): The built-in Image Stabilizer can be used in the AF (autofocus) or MF (manual focus) modes. The Image Stabilizer gives the equivalent effect of a shutter speed 4 stops faster. The 2-position switch located on the barrel of the lens allows you to turn the image stabilizer on and off.
Ultrasonic Motor (USM): The EF24-105mm lens is equipped with a ring-type Ultrasonic Motor (USM) for silent, high-speed auto focusing. A high-performance control CPU drives the motor with accuracy, and with quicker starts and stops. It is programmed with optimized AF algorithms to achieve fast, accurate focus, and maintain it consistently.
Focusing Ring: Regardless of whether the lens is set to manual or auto focus mode, the focusing ring always works. This means you can auto focus on a subject, but manually fine-tune the focus by turning the focusing ring.
Lens Hood: The included EW-83M lens hood can keep unwanted light out of the lens, and protect the lens from rain, snow, and dust. You can reverse-mount the lens hood on the lens for storage.
Optional Filters: The EF24-105mm lens has a 77mm mounting thread on the front of lens for attaching screw-on type filters.
