The Canon 16-35 mm EF f/2.8L III USM is the third in a series of exceptional wide angle zoom lenses from Canon. It features a bright f/2.8 aperture, is sealed against bad weather and delivers razor sharp images, making it the best choice wide angle lens for the working professional.

Luxury Series Optics

Carrying Canon’s L series badge of honour is nothing to be scoffed at. Lenses with the trademarked red ring are some of the highest regarded models on the market. They are widely recognised as being superior in image quality and offer a much higher build quality than other lenses.

Wide Angle Perspective

With a highly versatile focal range of 16-35 the lens is perfectly suited for wide angle real-estate work, group portraits, and weddings allowing you to capture even more of the scene than with a standard lens. The ability to zoom up to 35mm makes it possible to get closer to the action without sacrificing resolution so you can have enhanced control over the framing over your compositions.

35mm Format Compatible

Designed for professional level cameras the lens supports full frame sensors so you can get the most out of your equipment. It covers an entire 35mm frame to deliver edge to edge image quality and excellent low light performance.

Lightning Fast Autofocus

Boasting Canons Ultra Sonic Motor (USM) Autofocus System which gives this lens a quick focusing ability combined with quieter operation. The improved speed makes it simple to get in-focus shots and the almost silent motor means you can easily capture intimate moments at weddings or while covering events.

Fast f/2.8 Aperture

The focal length isn’t the only thing that’s wide, the fast f/2.8 aperture makes the lens more than capable of handling low light shooting scenes like night cityscapes and live music events. Using the wide aperture, it is also possible to incorporate a shallow depth of field into your images giving you even more creative control over your shots.

Weather Resistant Construction

L series lenses are widely recognised as being superior in image quality and more robust in construction and the 16-35 Mark III is no exception. It uses a fluorine coating to ensure that water droplets, dust and grease are repelled from the glass. Seals inside the lens prevent dust and water from entering meaning that you can use the lens in harsh weather conditions with confidence making the lens one of the most comprehensive, high quality lenses on the market.
