Introduced September 1996

The EF 24–85mm f/3.5–4.5 is an EF mount wide-to-normal zoom lens. It was introduced by Canon in 1996. The lens was originally sold with the Canon EOS IX, an APS film SLR,[1] although it was fully compatible with Canon's 35mm film SLRs. The lens was available in two colour schemes; silver when sold with the EOS IX, and black when sold separately.[2] The lens remained in production during Canon's shift to digital SLRs and was often included in press images of the Canon EOS D30.[3][4] As of June 2010 it is no longer listed on Canon's North American product page.[5]
