Further readings for the Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L USM
To provide photographers with a broader perspective about mobiles, lenses and cameras, here are links to articles, reviews, and analyses of photographic equipment produced by DxOMark, renown websites, magazines or blogs.
Canon has launched the 3rd iteration of its popular EF 16-35mm f/2.8L wide-angle zoom lens, predominantly for full frame press, sport and action photographers. Significant improvements to outer field sharpness on the new $2199 EF 16-35mm f/2.8L III also make it a viable option for landscape or astrophotography on the 50Mp EOS 5DS R, as well as wedding or event photography on the EOS 5D Mark IV. Although headline specifications are basically the same as its predecessor, improvements to the new lens’s durability, including water and dust resistance, equip the new lens better for the hammer of pro shooting in fast-paced, all-weather environments. Despite being specifically intended for use on full frame Canon DSLRs, the new EF 16-35mm f/2.8L III also remains compatible with Canon APS-C sensor cameras, such as the 7D Mark II, where it offers a less wide-angle and less useful 26-52mm equivalent focal range.
Although Sony has concentrated on the E-mount lens range for their mirrorless Alpha range, it hasn’t entirely forgotten the A-mount lens range. This lens is an update to the highly-regarded Zeiss-designed full-frame 16-35mm f2.8 SSM model. Read on to find out how well this updated zoom lens performs.
Canon has been instrumental in offering lightweight f4 lenses for professional users, and this new ultra-wide angle zoom L-series model is the first from the maker to include stabilization. Read on to see how well it performs.
The Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L USM is the ultimate wide-angle lens. It allows photographers to take pictures with unusual angles and in tight spaces. But the lens was tripped up in DxOMark testing in one important category.
