EF mount wide-to-telephoto zoom lens

EF 24–105mm f/4L IS USM
is an EF mount broad-to-telephoto zoom lens. Information technology was introduced by Canon in 2005 to complement the well-regarded 17–40mm f/4L USM and lxx–200mm f/4L USM.

The EF 24–105mm f/4L IS USM lens is ofttimes compared to the other L series zoom of comparable range, the 24–70mm f/2.8L USM, losing 1 full finish just gaining paradigm stabilization (IS) in render, stabilizing camera shake up to three stops. It also has rubber gaskets for wet and dust protection, although weather sealing is only effective if the photographer uses a weather-resistant camera body. Some early on production models of the EF 24–105mm f/4L IS USM lens had a flare problem (reportedly the first 10,000 batch) and Canon offered to repair them for free.[1]

This EF 24–105mm f/4L IS USM lens is bachelor in kits packaged with the EOS 5D Mk II, 5D Mk III and EOS 6D.

EF 24-105mm f/three.5-five.6 IS STM
is a newer ‘depression cost’ alternative to the EF 24–105mm f/4L IS USM. It has the aforementioned zoom range, only a non-constant aperture range which is typical of many non-professional zoom lenses. Both lenses have image stabilization (IS). The EF 24–105mm f/4L IS USM and IS Two USM version use a ring type ultrasonic motor, whereas the new EF 24-105mm f/three.v-v.6 IS STM uses Canon’s STM stepper motor, which is quieter during video usage. The new EF 24-105mm f/iii.5-5.6 IS STM weighs slightly less (525 g / eighteen.52 oz versus 670 grand / 23.6 oz) and costs roughly half the price of the EF 24–105mm f/4L IS USM.

An improved version of the EF 24–105mm f/4L IS USM, the
EF 24–105mm f/4L IS Two USM, was announced in August 2016. Information technology has a better image stabilizer and less distortion.[v]
The EF 24–105mm f/4L IS II USM lens is bachelor in kits packaged with the EOS 5D Mk Four.

On a ane.6x APS-C camera body, this lens’ field of view is equivalent to that of a 38–168mm lens on a 35mm moving picture camera; this is a very useful range, covering nigh normal to medium-telephoto needs.
