Canon 20-35mm f/2.8L Lens


The Canon 20-35mm f/2.8L lens is a wide angle zoom that works with full frame as well as crop factor cameras, and fits every camera Canon has made since the mid-1980s.  What’s more important is that it makes great pictures and video.  The L-series designation means sturdy all-metal build and fast USM autofocus for stills shooters.  Sharp even at f/2.8, by f/5.6 we’d be happy making landscape prints that were six feet across.

We love this vintage lens for a stack of reasons.  First, everybody loves 20mm and 35mm focal lengths.  Second, the bokeh on this lens is fantastic.  The weight is much more manageable than similar wides, like the beefy Tokina 16-28mm f/2.8. As an added bonus for video shooters, there is little-to-no breathing on focus pulls. This wide lens has the least distortion of any Canon zoom in this range, particularly at around 24mm where edges get perfectly square.  If you are shooting portraits or architecture and want a wide zoom, this is definitely Canon’s strongest offering.

Shows subtle vignetting at f/2.8 on the wide side.  Almost completely even by f/4. It has 72mm front threads.
