Canon delivers the new 11-24mm f/4L USM

March 31st 2015

Long-awaited by photo enthusiasts and pro photographers alike, Canons new ultra-wide angle, 11-24mm f/4L USM lens delivers what it promised, and more. It's Canon's widest ever rectilinear zoom lens, by a fair margin!

Unfortunately, it comes at a cost, and a hefty one at that. This baby isn't cheap. At close to $3,200.00 Cdn, it's also by far the most expensive lens in it's focal range.  But, like most will say... "you get what you pay for!"

In this case, it holds true.  Landscape, property & architectural photographers will cherish this "must-have" lens in their chest vest or carry bag. 

The Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L USM ultra wide-angle zoom lens is designed to deliver high quality, minimally distorted images throughout the entire zoom range. Featuring the widest angle of view (126º05’ diagonal) ever achieved for a rectilinear full-frame Digital SLR lens, and a minimum focusing distance of 11 inches (at 24mm), this new lens is ideal for professionals who want the ultimate in creative image expression with sharp, crisp detail whether shooting entire buildings from a close position, entire stadium shots from a high-vantage point, large group photos at a scenic wedding or even astrophotography. Cinematographers will be equally as impressed with the lens’ ability to retain straight lines.
