24 mm emphasizes full-frame visual impact

This lens goes wider that most other lenses of this type, with a 24 mm wide end that makes a significant difference in the full-frame format. 24 mm means more dynamic perspectives for scenery, architecture, indoor shots, and a multitude of other subjects. Excellent resolution is maintained throughout the image area at all focal lengths.

10x zoom captures subjects near or far

24 mm to 240 mm covers a broad variety of photographic needs. It is a one-lens solution that can reduce baggage when traveling and maximize efficiency at busy events. Move close to the subject and use the telephoto end of the range to create impressive perspective, with smooth bokeh effects for subjects like flowers as well as general photography.

High resolution throughout the zoom range

Five aspherical elements and one ED glass element contribute to high-quality 24 mm performance in a compact lens. All types of aberration have been effectively suppressed while high resolution is achieved throughout the image area. An advanced linear motor drives the focusing mechanism for quick, smooth response throughout the extended zoom range.

Sharper images in any light

Built-in Optical SteadyShot (OSS) image stabilization makes it easier to capture clear images when shooting handheld at the telephoto end of the zoom range, in ambient indoor lighting, or when shooting night scenes. For most photography, you can leave the tripod at home!

High reliability in harsh conditions

A design that resists dust and moisture helps ensure reliable operation in harsh outdoor conditions. Shoot with confidence in light rain or windy conditions.
