A High Performance,
Water-resistant Ultra Wide Lens
This Canon Zoom Lens is just fantastic for
nature photography, in
fact, this is the only lens you need. Just put something of
significance in the foreground (flowers, rocks, branches, etc.) and let the lens
perform a sleight of hand to stretch out the horizon and to add drama and
flair to the image. Turns beaches
into sparkling stretches of sand... Creates mysterious enchanted forests. Adds
serene barrenness to the desert.
For shooting weddings, it can be employed to extend small uninspiring churches and make them more
impressive. It is also great to use from above for dance floor images and
truly makes the shots full of life and out of the ordinary. If you are trying to decide between this and the 17-40, Forget the sloooow 17-40
for indoor use, as you will just end up selling it at a loss to upgrade to
the 16-35 later.
L series lenses, this one is built extremely solid. It may feel fairly large and bulky to
those who haven't used L series lenses before. The extra bulk is
comes from higher quality glass and the use of more durable materials (metal vs. plastic).
