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
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.
