Canon's EF 24mm f/2.8 IS USM lens
Canon's two new models - the EF 24mm f/2.8 IS USM and EF 28mm f/2.8 IS USM - are said to be the first wide-angle lenses to feature the firm's optical image stabilisation technology - enabling "sharp results when shooting handheld, even in low light conditions," claims the firm.
"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," it adds.
Both lenses offer a wide f/2.8 aperture, and are able to detect intentional panning movement and automatically switch from Normal IS mode to Panning IS mode. They feature a new optical design with an aspherical glass moulded lens element incorporated to correct aberration throughout the optical system. The lenses also use Canon's Super Spectra Coatings to reduce ghosting and flare, and have a ring-type USM for silent, high-speed autofocus performance.
The 24mm and 28mm lenses will retail, from June, at £750 and £730 respectively.
