Canon has introduced the Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L USM ultra wide-angle zoom lens. It is designed to deliver high quality, minimally distorted images.
The lens is compatible with all EOS cameras, but particularly effective with full-frame cameras such as the new Canon EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R Digital SLR cameras.
The new L-series lens features newly developed optics comprised of 16 elements in 11 groups with a three group zoom system and rear focus.
It also features one Super UD element and one UD lens element to deliver sharp images with high resolution.
The new lens accurately reproduces straight lines in the subject with minimal distortion.
The Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L USM lens features Canon’s proprietary Sub-Wavelength Structure Coating (SWC) and Air Sphere Coating (ASC).
The SWC coatings are particularly effective for combating flare and ghosting caused by light rays entering the lens at a large angle of incidence, while the ASC coating helps mitigate the same problems for light rays entering the center of the lens.
The Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L USM lens features a inner focusing system and zoom ring, as well as a built-in petal type lens hood with light-shielding grooves.
The Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L USM ultra wide-angle zoom lens joins the line up of Canon f/4L USM zoom lenses including 16-35mm, 17-40mm, 24-70mm, 24-105mm, 70-200mm, and 200-400mm + 1.4X Extender models.
It is scheduled to be available in late February 2015 for a price of $2,999.00.
