With its universal focal range, consistently high aperture and closest focusing distance of just 18 cm at a focal length of 24mm, the Vario-Elmarit-SL 24–70 f/2.8 ASPH. is suitable for video and still photography applications across the board. It is a perfect choice for photographers with a preference for travelling light.
The elaborate optical construction of the Vario-Elmarit-SL 24–70 f/2.8 ASPH., featuring six aspherical surfaces, guarantees excellent imaging performance throughout the entire zoom range. The eleven-bladed aperture and perfect chromatic correction ensure an especially harmonious bokeh and endless compositional possibilities. The body and the lens hood are made entirely of metal and make the Vario-Elmarit-SL 24–70 f/2.8 ASPH. a robust companion for any situation. The fast stepper motor in the lensbody moves only a single, very light-weight lens element – resulting in a virtually lag-free autofocus operation.
