To meet the requirements of digital SLR owners, this EF 16-35mm f/2.8L USM ultra-wide-angle zoom offers a wider view, fast 1:2.8 aperture, 16-35mm focal length, and closer focusing distance to 11 in. (.28m). The first EF wide-angle zoom to combine three Aspherical elements and Canon’s ultra-low dispersion (UD) glass, the lens remains compact while providing superior image quality across its range. Constructed to pro standards, it’s also highly resistant to dust and moisture. It has a ring type USM for silent and high-speed AF operation.
Product Features in Detail
The L-series is Canon's flagship professional lens range, representing the best in precision-designed EF optics. L-series lenses combine superior performance with superlative handling, and are resistant to dust and moisture.
Constant f/2.8 aperture
A fast f/2.8 maximum aperture stays constant over the full focal-length range, meaning no variation in shutter speed will occur when zooming.
A ring-type ultrasonic motor drives autofocus extremely quickly, and in near silence. Excellent holding torque ensures the point of focus is reached accurately, without overshooting. Furthermore, full-time manual override is available, making it possible to adjust focus without leaving AF mode.
Smooth background blur
A virtually circular aperture diaphragm gives out of focus regions a softer, more uniform feel. Sharp foreground objects stand out against a smooth blurred background.
UD and aspherical elements
The EF 16-35mm f/2.8L USM incorporates three aspherical elements to ensure corner-to-corner sharpness and clarity throughout the focal range. UD (Ultra Low Dispersion) elements virtually eliminate chromatic aberrations.
