Canon are delighted to confirm that the Societies' Convention, will be the first opportunity in the UK for visitors to touch and try the new EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM and EF 35mm f/2 IS USM lenses.

In addition to these, Canon will also be showcasing their new smallest and lightest full-frame DSLR - the EOS 6D along with the rest of the product range of Cameras, Lenses and Printers. Register now and visit the Canon stand!

EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM - high performance, high flexibility, Hybrid IS
The EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM is the latest addition to Canon’s elite L-series, and expands the range of standard zoom EF lenses available for both professional and amateur photographers. Ideal for reportage and wedding photography, it combines an essential everyday focal range with a premium quality L-series construction, delivering consistently sharp, professional-quality stills in a range of different situations. A new macro function also optimises the placement of lens groups during macro photography, allowing shooting at a maximum magnification of 0.7x - reducing the need for photographers to carry a dedicated macro lens.

EF 35mm f/2 IS USM - take a wider look at the world
The new EF 35mm f/2 IS USM is designed to offer outstanding flexibility - allowing photographers to capture an even broader range of scenes and subjects in wide-angle. The lens is Canon’s first-ever 35mm prime to feature optical Image Stabilizer technology, which combines with high quality optics to offer outstanding performance from a lightweight, compact body. The 35mm focal length also provides the ability to capture everything from close-up portraits to wide-angle landscapes, making it an ideal companion for travel or general reportage photography.
