Quick OverviewBrand - Canon
For incredible versatility, the EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II USM has been redesigned to deliver superb L-series optical performance that pairs smoothly with the high-resolution, full-frame sensors of SLR cameras. Featuring a zoom range of 24-105mm and a constant f/4 aperture, the EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II USM is ideal for landscapes, portraits, sports and more, offering effective all-day performance for advanced photography and videography. It helps reduce ghosting and flare, and has improved peripheral brightness as well as a 10-blade circular aperture that helps deliver sharp, evenly illuminated images with gorgeous background blur. It even has an improved IS system for better handheld performance, especially in challenging light. From wide-angle to mid-telephoto and everywhere in-between, the EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II USM is a durable, compact performer you can count on for excellent performance and gorgeous results in more places, more often.
The EF 24–105mm f4/L IS II USM’s new optical composition includes 17 elements in 12 groups, including 4 glass-molded (GMo) aspherical lenses on 5 surfaces for excellent overall resolving power. These improvements help increase peripheral brightness for better edge-to-edge results with reduced distortions, delivering still photos and video of great clarity and resolution.
High-performance standard zoom lens with constant f/4L aperture and a broad angle of view covering wide-angle to mid-telephoto
Offering coverage from 24mm wide-angle to 105mm mid-telephoto, the EF 24–105mm f/4L IS II USM is a true walk-around lens that can be used for any number of shooting scenarios. From landscapes and portraits to snapshots and videos of breaking news, and anything else that catches the photographer’s or filmmaker’s eye, the EF 24–105mm f/4L IS II USM range is highly adaptable. You can spend less time changing lenses and more time taking pictures or recording video.
The EF 24–105mm f/4L IS II USM features Air Sphere Coatings (ASC) on its lens elements to help combat flare, ghosting and reflections, and deliver clean images with reduced aberrations from reflected light. Designed to significantly reduce distortions, this technology puts an ultra-low refractive layer on the lens element. This layer works with the EF 24–105mm f/4L IS II USM’s overall optical formula to help deliver a clean image to the camera’s sensor, which can decrease the need for post-production.
For consistently sharper results, the EF 24–105mm f/4L IS II USM features an improved Image Stabilizer system that provides significantly enhanced shake reduction for up to 4 stops* of shutter speeds. This means more reliable handheld performance and clearer detail in low-light situations or at lower ISOs. Because of its enhanced stabilization, the EF 24–105mm f/4L IS II USM can also minimize the need for a tripod.
* Based on CIPA (Camera & Imaging Products Association) standards. Testing performed using the EOS-1D X digital SLR camera at a focal length of 105mm. The number of stops may vary based on the camera model used.
Thanks to its 10-blade, circular aperture, the EF 24–105mm f/4L IS II USM is capable of gorgeous, evocative out-of-focus areas and soft backgrounds throughout its zoom range. By delivering an incredible level of control over background blur, it helps you define the mood of your image, creating impactful photos and videos.
To help maintain a clean lens, even after multiple lens changes in sub-optimal conditions, the EF 24–105mm f/4L IS II USM has a specially designed non-stick fluorine coating on its front and rear surfaces. This fluorine coating helps prevent dust, water, oil and other surface residue like fingerprints from sticking to the lens, resulting in quick and easy wiping, without the use of solvents.
Befitting an L-series lens, the EF 24–105mm f/4L IS II USM is built to endure photography and moviemaking in even the harshest conditions. It features a dust- and water-resistant construction on the switch panel, the zoom and focus rings, and on the lens mount, helping to prevent dust and moisture from interfering with operation.
The EF 24–105mm f/4L IS II USM is engineered to provide fast, accurate operation for efficient performance across the board. It features a high-performance control CPU that drives Canon’s quick inner focusing with ring USM for quick starts and stops. Plus, it’s programmed with optimized AF algorithms that help achieve fast, accurate focus and maintain it consistently.
The EF 24–105mm f/4L IS II USM offers complete manual control, even when AF is engaged, with a simple twist of the lens’s focus ring. Additionally, full-time manual focus means it’s easy to achieve and maintain focus manually, which can be especially handy when shooting video or composing still images on an SLR’s screen.

If you recently purchased your first DSLR or mirrorless camera, you probably know it won’t reach its true potential unless you add a few lenses to your basket. Your DSLR purchase could turn into wastage of money if you don’t ever replace the kit lens that came with the camera. Invest in a new lens will certainly bring a huge boost to image quality. Buying a new lens could be intimidating, as you must dive deep into the world of lenses for making an informed purchase. We can always consult with our experts at Ryans either online or physically visiting your nearby Ryans showroom. However, this article aims to help you out with building a greater understanding of lenses.
There are five different parameters that you need to take into consideration while purchasing a lens for your camera. Let’s take a closer look at all these parameters one by one.
Lens Speed is the first thing you need to take into account while purchasing a lens for your DSLR. Lens Speed describes the maximum aperture of the lens. Aperture is a hole within a lens, which allows light to travel into the camera sensor. You can shrink or enlarge the size of the aperture to allow more or less light to reach your camera sensor. It is described as a number with the letter F next to it. The smaller the number the larger the hole and more light can get passed at a time. This means that the shutter speed can be quicker and means the lens is faster.
The maximum aperture of a camera will help you work out several things.
A fast lens for instance with a maximum aperture of f/1.4 is capable of taking shots in a lot darker places than a lens with a maximum aperture of f/4 or f/5.6.
A faster lens will also allow you to take pictures of moving subjects and freeze them better.
Faster lenses let you have a shallower depth of field. This means that when you’re focusing upon a subject the foreground and background will be blurrier. Of course, having a very fast lens means that this can make focusing trickier as your depth of field is very shallow. Of course, you can shoot at a smaller aperture with a fast lens to make your depth of field deeper.
Faster lenses will help with your flash photography too as they capture more ambient light.
Focal length allows you to change the perspective of your shot without having any movement. A shorter focal length, like a 24mm one, will allow you to capture a wider slice of the scene. On the other hand, a longer focal length, such as a 200mm, allows you to get closer to the action. That’s why longer lenses are used for capturing distant objects and shorter lenses are good for capturing landscapes. The focal length of a lens tells you how much it will magnify your subject when photographing it. It will also tell you what kind of angle of view you’ll get.
This is the measurement between the end of your lens and the nearest point that it can focus. It’s particularly useful to know if you’re interested in Macro or close up photography.
Many mirrorless cameras have image stabilization built into the body to help eliminate camera shake. However, this feature is quite rare in DSLRs. If you want stabilization on a camera that doesn’t have it built-in, you have to buy a lens that comes with this feature. Manufacturers use various tags to denote this feature, from Canon’s IS (Image Stabilization) to Nikon’s VR (Vibration Reduction) to Sony’s OSS (Optical Steady Shot).
Stabilization isn’t always necessary for still photography — shooting at a fast shutter speed will also keep things nice and sharp. However, when working in low light at slow shutter speeds, shooting video in any conditions, or using a very long focal length, stabilization is very important. Stabilization is more common in zoom lenses, less so on primes where the wider apertures let you shoot faster shutter speeds.
