Produces a beautiful and natural background blur when shooting at wider apertures.
Canon's newly upgraded EF 16-35mm f/2.8 II USM lens is the high-performance, water- resistant, ultra-wide angle L-series lens that professionals rely on. Canon specifically designed the lens for improved edge-to-edge image quality with 3 high-precision aspherical lens elements, each of a different type (ground, replica, and GMo). This means you'll get even better image quality than with the original EF 16-35mm. The circular aperture produces a beautiful and natural background blurring when shooting at wider apertures, and the new AF algorithm provides silent, smooth, and ultra-fast autofocusing. Need a versatile lens for HD video? The EF16-35 is a favorite of indie directors looking for a versatile zoom lens.
