Canon designed this pro-quality lens for premium performance with their EOS SLR cameras. It produces vibrant wide-angle images when you pair it with a full-frame camera like the EOS 5D. An extremely large maximum aperture makes it ideal for shooting in lower-light environments. Use this lens on your camera to take group photos at dusk without using a flash, or snap pictures of a vast skyline from the top of a building.
Superior optics ensure you'll get crystal-clear, high-contrast images. Your photos will be clear and detailed across the entire field of view from one edge to the other thanks to two aspherical elements. Two UD lens elements help to minimize chromatic aberration, and a special lens coating virtually eliminates ghosting and flaring caused by off-axis sun rays. A powerful ultrasonic motor (USM) provides silent, precise auto focusing.
