Canon's EF 24mm f/2.8 IS USM Autofocus Lens is a compact wide-angle 24mm lens that gives you superb image quality and smooth, silent operation. It's equipped with Canon's Optical Image Stabilizer that provides up to 4 stops of shake correction--ideal for working in low light. A ring-type USM and advanced CPU with optimized AF algorithms for fast auto focusing make for a nimble, fast-operating lens. Aspherical lens elements help improve image quality on the periphery while a 7-blade circular aperture diaphragm delivers beautiful, soft backgrounds.
Canon lens coatings minimize ghosting and flare. Full-time manual focusing is available even while in AF mode, with a minimum focusing distance of 7.87" that offers powerful wide-angle images. A lens that offers the best--for stills and for video.
Image stabilization enables shooting at slower shutter speeds (up to 4 stops) to prevent camera shake
