Overview

Description by Canon:

LENS DISCONTINUED

An excellent all-round zoom lens that covers the range from ultra-wide-angle to true portrait-length telephoto. Its solid construction, fast USM autofocus and smooth operation are matched by its excellent optical quality. This compact lens is an ideal choice for shooters who want wider coverage than that provided by most standard zooms. The extra-wide coverage also makes it a great standard zoom for digital SLRs.

Reviews

"The Canon EF 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5 USM Lens has a minimum focus distance of 19.7" (500mm). This is one of the longer MFDs for a Canon general purpose zoom lens. At MFD and MFL (Maximum Focal Length), the 24-85 turns in a MM (maximum magnification) of .16x. Adding an extension tube or tubes makes a dramatic MM difference - .59x and beyond life-size 1.23x for 12mm and 25mm tubes
