Canon EF 24-105mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM - Smooth Quiet Focus in a Versatile Lens

The new EF 24-105mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens is the first EF-series zoom lens for full-frame sensor cameras to include a lead screw-type stepping motor (STM) that provides virtually silent AF while shooting video. The 24-105mm is one of the most versatile focal range options in the EF lineup as it can be used as a wide-angle lens while out on the town as well as a portrait-length zoom when trying to get closer to your subjects.

The Optical Image Stabilizer provides up to four shutter speed steps of correction, while two aspheric lenses plus a UD lens combine to provide high-quality results for both still images and video. New to the EF 24-105mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens is a seven group zoom optical formula that enables a conveniently compact design while maintaining high-quality optical performance. The lens' lightweight inner focusing system, high-speed CPU, and improved AF algorithm enables high-speed AF. In addition, the seven bladed circular aperture combined with the optimized lens placement and coatings delivers beautiful, soft bokeh, and exceptional color balance, while helping to minimize ghosting and flare. The new EF 24-105mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens provides a lighter and more affordable option with STM focus capabilities to Canon's popular EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM lens.

Canon EF 24-105mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens Overview / specifications
Entry class Full-Frame standard zoom lens with IS for photo and movie shooting

  • First EF full-frame standard zoom lens designed with photo and movie shooting in mind
  • Newly developed 17 elements in 13 groups optical design. Compactness and high image quality are achieved by a new 7-group zoom optics
  • Use of 2 Glass-molded (GMo) aspherical lenses and 1 Ultra-low Dispersion (UD) lens to reduce aberrations throughout the zoom range and achieve high quality images across the entire image area
  • First-time adoption of Lead-Screw type Stepping Motor (STM) in full-frame EF lens, enabling quiet and smooth continuous AF in Live View shooting and movie shooting1
  • Inner focusing design, high-speed CPU and optimized AF algorithm provide fast and quiet auto focusing for still images. Full Time Manual Focus is also supported
  • Compact Optical Image Stabilizer offers shake compensation up to 4-stop shutter speed and automatically detects normal shooting and panning for optimized compensation
  • 0.4m minimum focusing distance with 0.3x maximum magnification
  • 7-blade circular aperture produces beautiful out-of-focus images
  • Lens coatings are optimized to minimize ghosting and flare
  • Optional petal-type Lens Hood EW-83M further enhances flare resistance
