Professional wide angle performance

This is a superb lens that covers nearly every professional wide-angle task. The three aspherical lens elements combined with two ultra-low dispersion UD elements gives outstanding optical performance. Close-focusing to 28cm and a 9-blade circular aperture gives this lens great versatility to produce precise imagery. With weather-resistant construction, this lens can take on any weather conditions.

Weather-resistant construction

Highly resistant to dust and water, the Canon EF 16-35mm F/2.8L III USM lens can take on shooting even in harsh and rigorous 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 conditions, you can make this lens even more weatherproof by capping it off with a protective Canon filter.

Sharpness and clarity

The three aspherical lens elements combined with two ultra-low dispersion UD elements ensures sharpness and increased clarity in your shots. Chromatic aberrations and distortions are reduced for 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

A minimum focusing distance of 280mm allows for great close ups with this lens. 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. A 16-35mm focal range in this Canon EF 16-35mm F/2.8L III USM lens provides superb control of perspective, giving you the tools you need to capture outstanding images.

Silent and fast 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 a high-impact action moment or a fleeting animal in the wild. Its silent shutter ensures you can be candid when you need to be, at an event or in the wild.

Fast, constant aperture

With a constant aperture of f/2.8, this lens enables shallow depth of field, which is often difficult to achieve with ultra wide-angle lenses, and the ability to maintain the same aperture throughout the zoom range. This is especially helpful when shooting outdoors at dusk or indoors in dimly lit rooms.

Create soft bokeh effects

The nine-blade circular aperture delivers beautiful, soft backgrounds for lovely bokeh effects. Create beautiful soft moods with control over 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 capturing birds and wildlife in nature.

Smudge free lens coating

The non-stick fluorine coating on the front and rear lens surfaces of this 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.

Which filters do you recommend pairing this lens with?

Pair this with the new Lee Reverse filter for the most amazing landscape sunsets. Try adding an ND filter to achieve those silky smooth waterfall shots.

What’s the benefit of using the lens hood?

Not only will the lens hood help keep out stray beams of light, it will also help protect your lens if you accidentally bump or knock it.

How can I best protect my lens?

Protecting your lens from scratches, fingerprints and dust is super important to keep it in the best condition possible for as long as possible. Use a protector filter for this. Also, never wipe your lens with a t-shirt as they can have tiny fragments of dirt that can scratch the lens.

How should I clean my lens?

Use a residual oil remover to remove any surface dirt that’s sticking to the lens. Spray the ROR onto a cloth rather than directly onto the lens itself.

Do I need a tripod for landscapes?

To minimise blur completely, shoot landscapes on a sturdy tripod with a remote.
