Canon's L Series lenses are world-renowned for their high-performance optics and rugged reliability. You'll really see the difference that pro-quality glass makes with this 16-35mm f/4 zoom. It delivers impressive wide-angle shooting on full-frame cameras such as the Canon EOS 5d Mark III. Use it to take expansive photos of outdoor nature scenes, or fit a large group of people into a single frame. A large, constant f/4 aperture throughout the focal range means you'll be able to capture well-exposed photos, even when shooting in lower light. Its built-in Optical Image Stabilizer helps minimize the blurring effects of camera shake by effectively adding up to four stops of shutter speed, so your photos will come out crisp in all different sorts of lighting conditions.
Designed for great performance
Superior Canon optics ensure you'll get crystal-clear, high-contrast images. Your photos will be crisp and detailed across the entire field of view — from one edge to the other — thanks to three aspherical and two ultra-low dispersion lens elements. A powerful ultrasonic motor (USM) provides silent, precise auto focusing. Plus, full-time manual focus override lets you take control with just a twist of the focus ring when the situation calls for an artist's eye to fine-tune the image.
