The Canon 16-35mm f4 IS USM lens is compatible with all EF-mount Canon cameras, both full frame (e.g. Canon 5D) and APS-C/cropped sensor (e.g. Canon 90D, Canon 800D, Canon 1500D).
The EF-RF mount adapter will let you mount the lens on Canon EOS R series mirrorless cameras, while the EF-M mount adapter will let you mount the lens on Canon EOS M series mirrorless cameras.
With the Sigma MC-11 mount converter or an EF to E-mount Metabones adapter, the lens can also work on Sony E-mount cameras.
Please note that the Canon 16-35mm lens’ effective focal length when used on an APS-C/cropped sensor cameras would equate to 25.6-56mm.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
