Canon took the wraps off three new lenses tonight including the revamped EF 24-70mm F/2.8L II USM, which will sell for $2,299, starting in April.

The other just announced lenses include two new wide-angle primes: an EF 24mm f/2.8 IS USM ($849) and EF 28mm f/2.8 IS USM ($799). Both those lenses will go on sale in June.

The 24-70mm focal length in an f/2.8 aperture is one of Canon’s most popular professional zoom lenses. Version II of the 24-70mm uses one Super UD lens element and two UD lens elements to help achieve better image quality through the full zoom range.

According to Canon, the Super UD and UD lens elements will reduce chromatic aberration in the outer areas of the frame at wide angles.
