The Canon EF 24-105mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens is the first Canon EF standard zoom lens for full-frame sensor cameras to include a lead screw-type stepping motor (STM) for smooth and quiet AF and tracking while shooting movies or still images. It offers top-notch image quality thanks to two aspheric lenses and a UD lens for sharpness and clarity; optimized lens placement and advanced coatings that reduce ghosting and flare while delivering remarkable color balance; and a 7-blade circular aperture diaphragm that creates gorgeous, soft backgrounds. The lens is compact, has an advanced image stabilization system for up to four stops of compensation, and offers full time manual focus. With full-frame compatibility, outstanding STM AF performance, and covering a popular zoom range, the EF 24-105mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM is an excellent choice.
First EF lens with smooth, near-silent STM focusing
Canon's first standard zoom EF lens for full frame sensor cameras to include the STM feature. The focusing mechanism employs an inner focus lens, a stepping motor and lead screw to support the Canon EOS Movie Servo AF function and provide smooth and quiet continuous AF during video recording, as well as when shooting photos. In addition, the lens's high-speed CPU and improved AF algorithm allow for high-speed autofocus.
Outstanding optical performance and image quality
Two aspheric lenses plus a UD lens combine to provide high-quality results for both still images and movies, while optimised lens placement and coatings deliver exceptional colour balance, and minimise ghosting and flare. The lens's 7-bladed circular aperture delivers beautiful, soft backgrounds.
Full-time manual focus
Full-time manual focus allows manual focus adjustment while in AF Mode.
