The EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM is a relatively compact standard zoom in Canon's premium 'L' series. It's primarily designed for full frame cameras such as the EOS 6D, but also works on APS-C. It includes a macro mode offering up to 0.7x magnification, complemented by Canon's 'Hybrid IS' that's specifically designed to give better performance for close-up work than conventional IS systems. The lens is dust- and splash-resistant, including a rubber seal around the mount, and incorporates a ring-type ultrasonic motor for fast, silent autofocusing.
