Overview

Overview

Ultra-wide angle lenses have always been in demand by architectural, corporate, and other top pro photographers. Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM Ultra Wide Angle Zoom Lens features completely redesigned optics including 2 high-precision Aspherical elements and two totally new UD-glass elements. The result is superior image quality: better contrast and sharpness at the outer edges, and a reduction in chromatic aberrations that can sometimes be seen with high-resolution digital SLRs. Its diagonal angle of view is an impressive 114-anything larger would be a Fisheye lens. It has a built-in lens hood, and has been dust- and moisture- proofed. The lens uses a rear focusing system, high-speed CPU, and a powerful ring-type USM with revised electronics for faster, more responsive AF. This lens continues the proud tradition of superior clarity optics found in L-series Canon lenses.

Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM Ultra-Wide Zoom Lens Expert Review

The Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM Ultra Wide Angle Zoom Lens is an essential part of the photographer's kit. Preferred by both enthusiasts and professionals, this wide angle lens forms a part of the Canon trinity. It is equipped with fantastic features that make it a must-have for all the photography enthusiasts. The wide-open aperture captures lighter backgrounds thus delivering high-quality images. The great optics across the focal range and a wide angle helps to focus on the foreground elements. Also, the excellent wide-angle for both crop-sensor and full-frame bodies enable to click wide photos. The Canon EF looks like a worthy lens in comparison to others. There are some additional features too that make this premium lens one of a kind.

Built and Design

The compact and portable design of the Canon lens makes it extremely lightweight and comfortable to carry anywhere you go. With such ease in handling, this high-precision lens is pleasant to use all day long. Be it a wedding or your graduation ceremony, you can add that little edge to your photography with these Canon EF lenses. There are circular polarizes on these wide lenses. You have to careful while choosing the type you are comfortable with as any filter too thick may cause vignetting at the corners on a full frame body. The rubber focus and zoom rings are smooth. They are well-proportioned to the size of the lens body. A rubber gasket at the mount makes it weather-sealed. You can also add an extra front filter to weather-seal your camera lens for a longer period. It is tactfully designed to endure and work in extreme weather conditions.

Image

The image quality delivered by the Canon EF lens is one of the best that Canon offers. The captured images are relatively sharper than other lenses. It is tricky to accomplish good photos with ultra wide-angle zoom lenses with an active blurred background. But the same is achieved with a wide-open aperture. This camera lens enables you to click some amazing wide-angle photos with its open aperture and close subject to deliver clarity. There are certain potential issues with all wide-angle lenses such as flaring, softening and chromatic aberration at the edges. But these lenses do not flare, and you can also shoot into the light without having to worry about the loss of contrast. One of the astonishing features of this Canon EF lens is that it does not create vignette. So, you can click your photos without any error or major lens issues.

Target audience

This lens is perfect for photojournalists and wedding photographers. The fast aperture, versatility of the zoom and great optics will help you create compelling images in the tightest of the environment. With its 16-35 mm wide-angle lens, it can also be a staple for landscape shooters. So, if you like to travel and shoot various events as a professional photographer, then this Canon EF is the best pick for you.
