Editor's Notes & Price Research

Written by
  • About this item:
    • A new and affordable L-series ultra-wide-angle zoom lens that's ideal for both film and digital SLRs. Superior optics are assured by the use of three Aspherical lens elements, in addition to a Super UD (Ultra-low Dispersion) glass element. Optical coatings are optimized for use with digital cameras. This lens focuses as close as 11 inches (0.28m), and offers both Canon's full-time manual focus and a powerful ring-type USM for fast and silent AF. It has a constant f/4 maximum aperture, and offers the choice of screw-in 77mm filters or a holder in the rear of the lens for up to three gel filters. Finally, it offers weather-resistant construction similar to other high-end L-series lenses.

I think the 16-35 is arguably a better lens. Not sure its twice as nice or how much you value IS, but its newer Canon design language also.

For the price, 17-40. 1 and 5mm difference for twice the price wouldn't make sense to me.

Or get both and return one.

Do EF lenses stop functioning when Canon discontinues DSLR production?

That's what people say.
But does not mean you can't use them with an adapter on RF body's.
You can still get EF and Ef-s lens's from 1990's. I don't see why Canon would go out of there way to break Ef lenses when they themselves made an adapter from RF to EF.
Plus so many pros still use non mirrorless and are super happy.

Your comment cannot be blank.

16-35 is the newer canon lens with Image Stabilization. Image Quality of 16-35 is way better than 17-40 and worth the price difference here
this is also a great price on the 16-35 f4 L IS and the RF 70-200 F4 L IS:

According to Dxomark both lenses have about the same image quality. $299 for a L lens is a no brainer especially if your camera body has IBIS

My go to for landscape photography. I use a tripod most times while shooting deep DoF at f/11-f/16. Good lens. A little fuzzy in the corners so leave a bit of room for cropping.

The 16-35 f2.8 III is way better than the slow f4. Good prices used on KEH. If your wanting the best, of course.

IS makes a big difference. F/4 by itself is really slow.

f/4 vs f/2.8 is inconsequential with high ISO capable modern cameras. You trade off lens size and bokeh with cost
