The Canon EF-S 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM is a high performance ultra wide-angle lens for professional and high end amateur photographers. The design creates consistent image quality without distortion at the edges. Ground, replica and GMo lens elements work together to create a higher quality image than the original Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L USM. An internal focusing system eliminates the need to adjust the camera's focus separately. The autofocus is built to work quickly and quietly, and manual focus can be adjusted with a ring. The aperture is circular, allowing backgrounds to blur naturally when shooting at wider apertures and natural bloom effects.
