Canon EF 24mm f2.8 IS en 28mm f2.8 IS

Los van de nieuwe Canon 24-70mm zijn er ook twee nieuwe primes aangekondigd. Het gaat om de EF 24mm f2.8 IS USM en de 28mm f2.8 IS USM. Het opvallende is dat beide primes voorzien zijn van beeldstabilisatie, terwijl de 24-70mm f2.8 II L daar dus niet over beschkt. De 24mm f2.8 dook in mei 2011 al op in een patent. Volgens Canon zijn het de eerste groothoeklenzen met vaste brandpuntsafstand (primes) die voorzien zijn van beeldstabilisatie. Naast IS zijn beiden lenzen voorzien van een ultrasonische motor (ring USM). De 24mm f2.8 heeft een adviesprijs van € 859 terwijl de 28mm f2.8 € 829 kost. De prijzen zijn daarmee een stuk hoger dan hun voorgangers.

Introducing the world’s first wide-angle primes with IS

Canon today also launches the new EF 24mm f/2.8 IS USM and EF 28mm f/2.8 IS USM – the world’s first 24mm and 28mm fixed wide-angle lenses to feature optical IS technology. Ideal for landscape and reportage, both lenses offer outstanding flexibility allowing photographers to shoot an even broader range of scenes and subjects – combining fast apertures with IS to enable sharp results when shooting handheld, even in low light conditions.

Offering an advantage of up to 4-stops over lenses without IS, both lenses are ideal for capturing more of the scene thanks to their wider focal lengths. Both feature a wide f/2.8 aperture, allowing photographers to explore shallow depth of field, or to shoot in lower-light conditions. Wide apertures and IS technology also make each lens ideal for shooting fast-moving subjects, while Canon’s advanced IS technology is able to detect intentional panning movement and automatically switch from Normal IS mode to Panning IS mode – helping users to capture movement with greater accuracy.

Silent, high-speed AF performance is provided by the inclusion of a ring-type USM and additional features including optimized AF control. Full-time manual focusing also ensures adjustments can be made even when AF is engaged, while a minimum focusing distance of 0.20m (EF 24mm f/2.8 IS USM) and 0.23m (EF 28mm f/2.8 IS USM) allows photographers to get even closer to smaller or more detailed subjects.

Designed to perform

Both the EF 24mm f/2.8 IS USM and EF 28mm f/2.8 IS USM feature redesigned optics to improve image quality and reduce the need for post-production. An aspherical glass moulded (GMo) lens element is incorporated to correct aberration throughout the optical system, while Canon’s optimised Super Spectra Coatings reduce ghosting and flare for stand-out image quality. Externally, both models also boast a number of design similarities with Canon’s professional L-series lenses, with a similar coating on the barrel and a similar design on the focus ring. A distance scale is also included to assist with landscape photography, while the compact design makes these lenses an unobtrusive addition to any kit bag.
