  1. Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L IS Lens

    Canon-70-200-2-8-is

    The Canon 70-200 f/2.8L IS lens is famous for beautiful bokeh, tack-sharp images, and impressive image stabilization.  This telephoto zoom lens is most popular with wedding, event, sport, and nature photographers, but is also right at home on DSLR video sets.

    The 70-200, like all EF-mount lenses, will work with any Canon DSLR we carry.  It’s also compatible with the Canon 1.4x telephoto extender, for added reach.  It has 77mm front threads, and close-focuses to 4.6 feet.

  2. Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8 L II USM Zoom Lens

    Canon-24-70-2-8Canon’s 24-70mm f/2.8 L II lens is the professional’s standard midrange zoom. The zoom length is practical and the lens is fast enough to use indoors. Comparing it to the 24-105mm f/4 L, or the original Canon 24-70mm f/2.8L, we find it to be significantly sharper, with less distortion. In our opinion, it’s the strongest midrange zoom made for any full frame camera.

    24-70mm is an obvious choice for a zoom lens on a full-frame camera, but works on a crop-factor camera, too, if you don’t mind it being on the heavy side.  It has 82mm front threads and close focuses to 16″.

    If you have a need for a stabilized midrange zoom, we love the Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 VC.

  3. Canon 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 L IS USM Lens

    canon-100-400-lens

    The Canon 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM lens is a professional-level telephoto lens. It features image stabilization, very fast USM focusing, and outstanding imaging performance.

    This long lens is often the best choice for outdoors: particularly sports, wildlife, weddings and other events. It is also an amazing portrait lens, creating extreme subject-background separation and telephoto compression. It is a popular choice for both photo and video shooters.  If you need an even longer lens, we suggest renting it with our Canon 1.4x telephoto extender.

    The EF mount fits every Canon DSLR ever made, and can be mounted on most mirrorless cameras with an adapter. At three pounds, it’s on the heavier side, but a tripod foot is included with the lens rental. Like many Canon L-series and telephoto lenses, It has 77mm front threads. The lens extends significantly when zoomed, making it a poor choice for matte boxes.

  4. Canon 20-35mm f/2.8L Lens

    Canon-20-35mm-wide-angle-zoom-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.

  5. Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM Zoom Lens

    canon-24-105mm-lens

    Canon’s image stabilized midrange zoom is a great all-around lens, and the most popular in their flagship L-series. It’s relatively sharp wide open, particularly on the wide side.  The image stabilization is useful for photo and incredibly helpful on handheld video shots.  The Canon 24-105mm is an obvious choice for a zoom lens on a full-frame camera, but works on a crop-factor camera, too, if you don’t mind your camera weighing less than your lens.  It has 77mm front threads and close focuses to 18″.

    If you have a need for a faster fullframe midrange zoom, we love the Canon 24-70 f/2.8L II  or Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 VC.
