“The EF 16-35mm f2.8L III USM is a superb and flexible wide-angle zoom that has earned its keep on many a dawn and dusk patrol.”

David Noton, Canon Explorer

The EF 35mm f/1.4L II USM is a true modern classic: a standard wide-angle lens beloved by photographers for its natural perspective, low-light capability and extraordinary optical performance.

A large f/1.4 maximum aperture lets in two stops more light than an f/2.8 zoom lens, making this an ideal lens for hand-held photography in low-light conditions.

Shooting at wide apertures allows photographers to limit depth of field. Creating such shallow-focus effects is one way that a subject can be made to stand out against a background, and is particularly effective when combined with the lens’s wide-angle field of view.

The EF 24mm f/1.4L II USM is the ultimate in fast aperture wide-angle lenses making it an ideal Landscape lens. The UD and aspherical elements eliminate distortion and aberrations for stunning results. A f/1.4 maximum aperture allows hand-held shooting in low light, greatly expanding your creative options.
