Lens Description

The Canon EF 16-35mm F/2.8L III USM is an ultra-wide to normal zoom designed for cameras with a Full-Frame sensor. This bright constant-aperture zoom covers a 16mm to 35mm focal-range. The body of this lens is weatherproof against adverse weather such as rain and snow. It has sealing to prevent entry of water and dust.

This zoom can focus down to 28cm from the imaging plane which gives it a maximum magnification of 0.22X. The lens offers a Quick-Shift AF system which lets the user simply rotate the focus-ring to focus manually. A Super-Sonic motor inside the lens delivers very fast and relatively quiet AF.

This lens is only available for Canon EF. Follow this link for all current compatible digital cameras: Canon EF mount cameras with Full-Frame or smaller sensors.
