Combining superb L-series build quality and the flexibility to capture all types of wide angle photography, the EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM is a must-have for both professional and serious amateur photographers. With its wide focal lengths, its wide aperture and its excellent wide open optical performance, this versatile lens offers professional standard wide angle photography for all types of settings. As a landscape lens, it works well for group shots at weddings, indoor events, real estate and architecture shots, for all of which a wide-aperture fixed focal length lens makes an excellent option, as they are great at letting in lots of ambient light, even without the use of a flash or a tripod. The ultra wide-angle lens is an ideal tool for landscapes, but its use is not limited to merely getting more in the frame. Used well, an ultra wide-angle lens can add drama and manipulate perspective, creating a photo that is dynamic and mesmerising.
Lightning fast and accurate autofocus make capturing the perfect shot easy. 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. Full-time manual focus operation is available for fine-tuning of your focus position when working in the AF mode. The circular aperture produces a beautiful and natural background blur when shooting at wider apertures. A virtually circular aperture diaphragm gives out of focus regions a softer, more uniform feel and sharp foreground objects then stand out against a smooth blurred background.
The lens embodies the highest standards of L-series optics, delivering superb quality images – undistorted and filled with razor-sharp details – dynamic contrast and vibrant colours. The constant f/2.8 maximum aperture also offers consistent performance and excellent light transmission throughout the zoom range. Super Spectra coatings ensure accurate colour balance and enhance contrast. They also reduce flare and ghosting – a common problem caused by light bouncing off a camera's sensor. The EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM incorporates three aspherical elements to ensure corner-to-corner sharpness and clarity throughout the focal range. Two UD (Ultra Low Dispersion) elements virtually eliminate chromatic aberrations.
