Canon EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM Reviews
The-digital-picture reviews the Canon EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM and writes;
“The Canon EF 24-70mm f/4 L IS USM Lens receives Canon’s 4-stop Hybrid Image Stabilization feature. If panning is detected, the 24-70 f/4 IS switches off stabilization in one direction. With an approaching-1:1 macro reproduction ratio, this lens will make good use of the HIS technology. “Hybrid IS detects both angular and shift movements when in macro mode.”"
Ephotozine reviews the Canon EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM and writes;
“A constant f/4 aperture throughout the zoom range provides photographers with exceptional creative control, allowing blurring of the background of a scene at all focal lengths. A nine-blade circular iris also assists photographers in making their subjects stand out, delivering beautiful out of focus highlights (bokeh) in the background blur to add atmosphere to a shot.”
Whatdigitalcamera reviews the Canon EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM and writes;
“Superfast AF performance is provided by a small, ring-type Ultrasonic Motor (USM). Working in combination with a high-performance CPU and advanced AF algorithms, USM technology enables accurate, silent and ultra-responsive auto focusing. Full-time manual focusing also enables adjustments to be made when AF is engaged.”
