To experience the ultimate in wide-angle photography, the EF 11-24mm f/4L USM brings L-series construction and optics to the widest zoom lens Canon has ever made. With an expansive wide-angle range of 11-24mm, this is an ideal lens for landscapes, interior shots, and unique perspectives on subjects close and far. Its new optical design features Super UD and UD lenses that correct chromatic aberration. Four aspheric lens elements help to minimize distortion from the center of the image to the periphery and throughout the zoom range. A Subwavelength Coating (SWC) and Air Sphere Coating (ASC) significantly reduce flare and ghosting, while a 9-blade circular aperture diaphragm creates beautiful, blurred backgrounds. For silent and fast AF, it features a rear focus system and ring USM, and can be manually focused even when in AF mode. It has a minimum focusing distance of 11 in./0.28m (extreme telephoto) for admirable performance and results even when shooting in tight spaces.

Constructed to L-series specifications, the EF 11-24mm f/4L USM is durable and rugged due to its highly dust and water resistant design, so it is prepared for shooting in any number of environments. It also has fluorine coatings on the front and rear elements for reducing smears and fingerprints. With a compact design that includes an integrated hood and compatibility with all EOS cameras, the EF 11-24mm f/4L USM is a must-have lens for photographers that demand excellent performance for truly expressive images anywhere.

Durable and Tough

The mechanical structure of this lens makes it move more smoothly, higher precision and a highly durable construction. Additionally, the zoom durability and resistance to vibration and shock of the lens barrel is exceptional. This lens achieves high durability and toughness in order to withstand harsh environmental conditions and rough handling. Dust-proof and drip-proof structure is applied to the mount, the switch panel, zoom ring, and focusing ring.

Circular Aperture Diaphragm

Equipped with an electromagnetic diaphragm (EMD) that uses a 9-blade circular aperture diaphragm, transforming point light sources in the background into more circular and beautiful background blurred shapes.

Focal Length of 11mm

Canon’s new EF11-24mm f/4L USM is an ultra wide-angle zoom lens that surpasses all competition by starting at 11 mm, the widest angle in the world. This lens has achieved a minimum focusing distance of 0.28 m (maximum magnification of 0.16x). This enables the user to shoot the subject from up close whilst still capturing the surroundings. Explore other photographic possibilities such as capturing wider range in one shot (horizontal angle of view of 117 degrees and diagonal angle of view of 26 degrees), large subjects from cramped positions or even surreal images through use of extreme perspectives.

Silent AF USM

This lens utilizes rear focus and ring Ultra Sonic Motor as well as offers silent Auto Focus. The use of a high-speed CPU and an optimized Auto Focus algorithm has brought about higher precision and speed.

ASC Coating

ASC is a technology that forms a film that includes air spheres over the vapor-deposition coatings. By regularly lining the inside of the coating with low refractive index air, this forms an ultra-low refractive index layer. ASC has excellent anti-reflective effects, particularly with respect to incident light that enters almost vertically. The air spheres cover a flat interface, so being a strong coating is also a feature.

Aspherical and UD Lens

An aspherical lens is used that has largest diameter in the world for an SLR interchangeable lens*. The following was achieved with four aspherical lenses: Widest angle 11 mm in the world, high image quality around the peripheral areas, and very low distortion at wide angle (between the EF16-35mm F4L IS USM and TS lenses).

 

  • Lens arrangement 16 sheets group 11
  • 4 aspherical lens (large diameter grinding aspheric single, large-diameter glass molded aspherical one, two glass mold aspherical)
  • One Super UD lens, one UD lens
  • SWC coating (two-sided)
  • ASC coating (one side)
  • The fluorine-coded into the rear lens and the front lens
  • Diaphragm blades nine. The aperture circular
  • Minimum aperture is F22
  • In the shortest shooting distance is 24mm 0.28m, 0.32m in 11mm
  • 0.16 times at the maximum photographic magnification is 24mm, 0.06 times in 11mm
  • AF motor ring USM
  • Full-time manual focus
  • Dust and water
  • Rear gelatin filter holder
  • Total length 132mm, maximum diameter 108mm
  • Weight 1180g
