The short editorial description of Canon EF16-35mm f/2.8 L USM Zoom Lens Black

EF 16-35mm f/2.8L USM

Canon EF16-35mm f/2.8 L USM Zoom Lens Black:

To meet the growing demand of digital SLR owners, this ultra-wide-angle zoom offers a broader view, fast aperture, and closer focusing

Developed to succeed the high-performance 17-35mm f/2.8L USM, the EF 16-35mmf/2.8L USM has the leading wide-angle range in its class. Due to the proliferation of digital SLR Camera’s that tend to have a smaller frame size when compared to the 35mm,there is a demand for shorter focal length lenses, and this has resulted in the development of the EF 16-35mmf/2.8L USM. This is the first EF lens to have three types of aspherical elements (ground, replicated and Gmo [glass molded] which effectively correct the lens aberrations which occur during zooming. And despite its longer zoom range the EF16-35mm f/2.8L USM obtains a higher image quality than any other lens in its class.

Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L Performance ReviewA Work in Progress and Under Revision This is an initial brief performance review of the EF 16-35mm f/2.8L lens. The major strengths of this lens over the EF 17-40mm f/4L lens are the obvious wider 16mm perspec...

I personally regard the Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8 L USM Lens as the best full-frame Canon ultra wide angle lens available. The Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8 L USM Lens fills the super wide angle, fast, high quality zoom lens category for Canon. A category that...
Prior to the release of the new 16-35mm f/2.8L, the Canon 17-35mm f/2.8L lens was the professional photographers only choice for the ultra wide zoom range. Both are excellent choices considering the flexibility and image quality they provide. However...
(From Canon lens literature) A superb lens that covers nearly every professional wide-angle task. Outstanding optical performance comes from three Aspherical lens elements, and (for the first time ever in an EF wide-angle zoom lens) two Ultra-low Dispe...
