Weather-Resistant Construction

Highly resistant to dust and water, the Canon EF 16-35mm f2.8L III USM lens can take on shooting even in harsh environments. Whether you’re on dusty terrain or by a waterfall, this lens will endure just about any conditions. If you’re going to be out in rough weather, you can make this lens even more weatherproof by capping it off with a protective Canon filter.

Sharpness and Clarity

The Canon EF 16-35mm f2.8L III’s three aspherical lens elements and two ultra-low dispersion (UD) elements ensure sharpness and increased clarity in your shots. Chromatic aberrations and distortions are reduced, resulting in bold colour reproduction and precision throughout the focal range. Wide landscapes will come through with clear definition and outstanding colours, while close-ups will show up superb contrast and definition in shadows and brightness.

Great for Close-Ups

With a minimum focusing distance of 280mm, the Canon EF 16-35mm f2.8L III USM lens allows for great close-ups. You’ll be able to get up close to the finer details of a flower’s petal or bring out the texture in wood grain. The 16-35mm focal range provides superb control of perspective, giving you the tools you need to capture outstanding images.

Fast and Silent Autofocus

Canon’s ring-type ultrasonic motor AF system achieves silent and fast autofocusing to help you focus right in on the action. The drive is extremely quick so you won’t miss a shot, whether it's of a high-impact action moment or wildlife in its natural habitat. When combined with a silent shutter, the Canon EF 16-35mm f2.8L III lens ensures you can be candid when you need to be – perfect when you’re capturing events, animals, candid portraits, or street photography.

Bright, Constant Aperture

With a constant maximum aperture of f2.8, the Canon EF 16-35mm f2.8L III lens offers additional brightness that’s ideal for shooting outdoors at dusk or in dimly lit rooms. It also affords shallow depth of field, which is often difficult to achieve with ultra wide-angle lenses, and consistent exposure throughout the zoom range.

Create Soft Bokeh Effects

The Canon EF 16-35mm f2.8L III lens’ nine-blade circular aperture delivers stunning bokeh effects. Create beautiful soft moods with background blur, to highlight other elements in your photographs and videos. This effect takes your shots to the next level, whether you’re shooting objects, people at a wedding, or birds in nature.

Smudge-Free Lens Coating

The non-stick fluorine coating on the front and rear surfaces of the Canon EF 16-35mm f2.8L III lens helps reduce smears and fingerprints. Your lens will stay clean and smudge-free, even after multiple lens changes. This coating helps prevent dust, water, oil and other surface residue from sticking to the lens, making it really easy to wipe clean without needing to use harsh cleaning products.
