Canon Announces the 16-35mm f/4 L Series Full-Frame Wide-Angle Zoom USM Lens and the 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 EF-S IS STM Lens

Canon Releases Two New Wide-Angle Lenses: A 16-35mm f/4 IS USM and a 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM -- Available at B & H Photo Video

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - May 13, 2014) - B&H Photo would like to share with the photography community Canon's official release of two new wide-angle zoom lenses -- the professional EF 16-35mm f/4L IS USM and the EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM for APS-C DSLRs. Both of these new lenses feature image stabilization and advanced optical designs, and are welcome additions to Canon's extensive line.

Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS USM

The EF 16-35mm f/4L IS USM is the newest lens in Canon's L-series line, delivering the ultimate combination of wide-angle, low-light performance, in a compactly-constructed full-frame lens. It is a wide-angle zoom featuring an Optical Image Stabilizer and a constant f/4 maximum aperture. The lens' construction includes three aspherical elements and two UD elements to minimize chromatic aberrations, while a fluorine coating reduces lens flare and ghosting. A rounded nine-blade aperture produces pleasing out-of-focus areas. A ring-type USM motor, along with an inner focusing design, provides fast, near-silent autofocus and -- when paired with an optional protection filter -- it is dust and water-resistant to allow you to use the lens in various conditions. Full-time manual focus is possible with the lens, and a minimum focusing distance of 0.92' is constant over the entire zoom range. The lens includes the EW-82 Lens Hood, which is also available separately as a replacement.

EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM

Canon has also announced the EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM, a wide-angle zoom made for EOS cameras with an APS-C sensor, which provides a 35mm focal length equivalency of 16-28.8mm. It features a four-group optical zoom system and an Optical Image Stabilizer that reduces the appearance of blur caused by camera shake. The lens has one UD element, one aspherical element, and one large-diameter element, as well as enhanced lens coatings for contrast and clarity. The STM stepping AF motor realizes smooth near-silent focusing, which is further benefitted by a rear-focusing system and high-speed CPU for quick performance. A circular seven-blade aperture provides pleasing out-of focus areas. The optional, dedicated EW-73C Lens Hood is also available. The EF-S 10–18mm f/4.5–5.6 IS STM delivers reliable, speedy and quiet wide-angle performance, making it an ideal lens for everyday photography, travel, stills and video recording.
