Description

The Canon EF 16-35 f/4L IS is a professional grade zoom lens. Suitable for covering a wide variety of areas, including wedding photography, landscape photography, architecture and street photography.

Smaller and lighter than its f/2.8L stablemate, the Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L also has a constant aperture and is sharp throughout its entire zoom range. Utilising Canon image stabilisation (IS) for up to four stops of compensation the difference in aperture between this version and the EF 16-35mm f/2.8L III USM only accounts for one stop of light. The f/2.8 version has an advantage, but lacks IS and only outperforms in terms of depth of field and with moving subjects in lowlight. Featuring a 9-curved blade aperture design, it also produces beautiful out-of-focus highlights, delivering less-pronounced DSLR shallow depth-of-field look. The 16-35mm f/4L at its widest aperture will still allow creators to create some attractive separation between the subject and the foreground and background.

Weather-sealed and constructed from premium metal and glass, the 16-35mm f/4L IS shines when paired with a full-frame DSLR camera such as the EOS 6D Mark II or 5D Mark IV. However, it will also work very well with APS-C Canon DSLR cameras without the need for an adapter or converter. When paired with a smaller sensor camera, such as the Canon 80D or 7D Mark II, this lens will produce a focal range closer to 25-55mm; losing some width but gaining in reach. This is worth considering if you own a cropped sensor camera but still want the quality offered by the 16-35mm f/4L IS.

The ring-type Ultrasonic motor of the 16-35mm f/4L delivers fast, accurate and near silent autofocusing. But it also offers manual override so that users can take over control of focusing without having to physically turn off the autofocusing function. A close focusing distance of 0.28m will allow creators to get close to their subjects and still enjoy a wide field of view.

A popular focal length among professional photographers and filmmakers, the Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L USM is a fantastic investment for anyone who is keen to build their kit and requires a more affordable, compact and lightweight alternative to the Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L III USM. If you add this lens to your collection it will hold its value well and provide many years of use, offering premium build and image quality for both stills and video.
