Canon 16-35mm f4: Professional and Versatile Wide-Angle Zoom

Capture stunning wide-angle shots thanks to the brilliant Canon 16-35mm f4 lens. Canon’s first ultra-wide L-series lens has the perspective and image quality to render landscapes, architecture, street shots and group portraits in superb detail. The Canon 16-35mm f4 lens’ built-in image stabiliser offers a distinct advantage for handheld and low-light shooting, and its weather resistant design (when paired with a 77mm circular filter) provides protection in almost any environment.

Shoot Clear and Sharp Images with the Canon 16-35mm f4 Lens

Create clear, sharp, professional wide-angle shots with precise detail. Capturing expansive landscapes, grand architectural shots and group or environmental portraits is easy with the Canon EF 16-35 mm f/4L IS USM lens, which is also ideal for travel photographers. With a constant f/4 aperture, this Canon EF lens provides consistent performance throughout the zoom range, so there is no variation in exposure when you zoom in. 

Edge-to-Edge Definition and Soft Bokeh

With three aspherical elements, including one large-diameter aspherical element and two ultra-low dispersion (UD) elements, the Canon 16-35mm f/4 lens eliminates unwanted chromatic aberrations and distortions throughout the zoom range. The result is sharp edge-to-edge definition and high resolution without disruption.

Anti-Reflection Coating

The front and rear lens surfaces of this Canon 16-35mm lens feature an anti-reflection coating. This helps to eliminate ghosting, which can cause a faint second image in your shots that effectively reduces the picture quality. Thanks to the anti-reflection coating, contrast and colour will be more defined in your images, resulting in clearer and more professional results every time.

Optical Image Stabiliser

The Canon 16-35mm f4 lens’ optical image stabiliser minimises camera shake by up to four stops, reducing blur in challenging situations. Shoot handheld, in a dimly lit room or from a distance and still achieve sharp, clean images.

Near-Silent Autofocus

The ring-type ultrasonic motor (USM) of the Canon 16-35mm f4 lens delivers fast and near-silent autofocus. So if you’re trying to be candid at a wedding or discreet out in the wilderness, you can shoot without fear of your shutter making a disturbance. The lens’ internal focus design is another added benefit, which keeps the overall length of the lens maintained while you’re shooting – ideal if you’re capturing video using a gimbal.

Full-Time Manual Focus

Clear, in-focus images are critical for professional photography. Full-time manual focus override in the Canon 16-35mm f4 lens lets you fine-tune your focus even when in AF mode, so you needn’t waste time switching to MF mode first.

Soft Bokeh Effects

Make portrait, nature and other subjects stand out against out-of-focus backgrounds. The Canon 16-35mm f4 lens’ nine-blade circular diaphragm creates beautifully soft and natural bokeh that’ll enhance every image you take. 

Dust and Waterproof When Used with a Filter

When an optional 77mm protective filter is added to the Canon 16-35mm f4 lens, the lens becomes dust and water resistant. So when you’re out in unforgiving environments, you can be sure that your lens is protected from the elements.

How do you capture a stunning sunset?

Try adding a graduated ND filter and/or polariser to your camera kit to even the exposure and bring out stunning colours and wispy clouds.

How can I best protect my lens?

Always put a filter on the front of your lens to protect it from scratches – it’s always better to scratch a filter, which you can cheaply replace, than the lens itself. Try starting with a UV or clear protector. Keep the lens hood on when shooting to help further protect your lens from any accidental drops.

I want to shoot star trails but keep finding the shots slightly blurred. How can I overcome this?

To get those amazing star trails without the blur, make sure you are using a heavy duty tripod, especially if the environment you are shooting in is windy. Most tripods will also have a hook at the bottom of the centre column where you can attach a sandbag to give the tripod more weight. At night always use a remote (or self timer if you don’t have one) and consider using mirror lock-up in your DSLR to completely eliminate all possibility of camera shake.

Why is it that every time I try to slow my shutter down to blur water, my shot is overexposed?

You will find this is a common problem if you are not using an ND filter. The ND filter will allow you to slow your shot down anywhere up to 500x. This will help blur those oceans, lakes and waterfalls or even make busy crowds disappear.

How do I stop dust getting on my camera’s sensor?

If you are out on a shoot and the environment is quite windy, change the lens on your camera either in your car or inside your bag if there is no shelter around. Always keep the camera sensor away from sunlight and have the rear lens cap off your other lens so your sensor is exposed for the least possible amount of time.
