The Canon EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM is a very capable but also very pricey standard zoom lens that will appeal most to wedding and reportage photographers looking for a lightweight and responsive lens
the performance in the centre of the frame, useful macro feature and lighter weight due to the f/4 maximum aperture may still have enough appeal for photographers
If your demands don't require a fixed f/2.8 zoom lens, the Canon EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM will reward you with sharp images and a useful zoom range.
Canon made a smart decision to offer a lower-priced alternative to its 24-70mm ƒ/2.8, in order to give Canon shooters of the more casual or economical nature a way to stay true to the brand name.
The Canon EF 24-70mm f/4 USM L IS is a difficult being with a great technical performance and a worrisome focus characterstic. It is certainly capable of delivering a image quality that sometimes even surpasses its bigger in-house mate
The pre-production EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM we handled for this review certainly looked like an attractive little lens - it's decently-built, with fast and silent focusing
