Versatile wide-angle

A brilliant lens that will capture stunning shots without the hefty price tag, Canon’s first ultra-wide L-series lens is great for shooting landscapes, street photography and group wedding shots. The Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS USM lens features a built-in image stabiliser for reduced camera shake and ultrasonic motor for fast and silent autofocus.


Clear and sharp images

Create professional shots with a constant f/4 aperture that delivers clear and sharp images with precise detail. This Canon EF lens provides consistent performance throughout the zoom range, so there is no variation in shutter speed or ISO when zooming. Capturing expansive landscapes and architectural shots are made easy with this lens, which is also ideal for travel photographers.

Edge-to-edge definition

With three aspherical elements, including one large-diameter aspherical element and two ultra-low dispersion (UD) elements, unwanted chromatic aberrations and distortions are eliminated throughout the zoom range. The result is sharp edge-to-edge definition and bold resolution without disruption.

Anti-reflection coating

The front and rear lens surfaces have an anti-reflection coating. By reducing reflection, ghosting is eliminated which can cause a faint second image in your photographs, effectively reducing the image quality. With a lens coating, image contrast and colour will be more defined, ensuring they look professional and clear every time.

Optical image stabiliser

The 4-stop optical image stabiliser minimises camera shake by up to four stops, resulting in ultra sharp images. Shoot in low light conditions or from a distance and still achieve in-focus images. You can also shoot handheld and pan without producing blur for clear shots.

Near silent autofocus

The ring-type USM ultrasonic motor (USM) and internal focussing design embedded in this lens results in fast and near silent autofocus. So if you’re trying to be candid at a wedding or out in the wilderness, your shutter won’t be making a disturbance. With the benefit of internal focus, the overall length of the lens is maintained while you’re shooting.

Full-time manual focus

Clear, in focus images are critical for professional photography. The full-time manual focus in the Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS USM lens gives you control to fine-tune your focus as close as 28cm throughout the zoom range. This gives you focusing precision, even in AF mode.

Soft bokeh effects

A nine-blade circular diaphragm helps to produces a soft, beautiful bokeh. This is ideal if you want to create a softer feel when shooting a wedding, portraits, street photography or shooting nature, making your subject stand out sharply against a smooth background.

Dust and waterproof when used with a filter

When an optional 77mm protective filter is added to this lens, it becomes dust and water resistant. So when you’re out in unforgiving environments, you can be sure your lens is protected from the elements. Take this lens with you anywhere, even out in harsh weather conditions.

How do you capture a stunning sunset?

Try adding a polariser to your photographic arsenal to 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, then you can add filters with different effects from there. Keep the lens hood on when shooting also to help 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 center 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 trying mirror lock up to completely eliminate all variables of camera shake. 

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

You will find this is a common problem you will face 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 get rid of that busy crowd.

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.
