Canon has announced two new additions to its EF lens range – the EF16-35mm f/4L IS USM and EF-S10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM. Designed for experts and enthusiasts, both lenses offer exceptional optical performance with the added benefit of Canon’s exceptional Image Stabilizer technology, offering a four-stop advantage when shooting in low-light conditions.

The EF16-35mm f/4L IS USM is a professional quality L-series lens offering outstanding performance throughout the zoom range. The compact and lightweight EF-S10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM has been designed for Canon’s consumer range of APS-C sensor EOS DSLRs, and is ideal for photographers looking to expand their view and get more into each shot, with both optical IS and STM technologies helping to deliver consistently sharp and crisp wide-angle stills and HD movies.

EF16-35mm f/4L IS USM: high-precision, wide-angle view

The EF16-35mm f/4L IS USM provides greater versatility for professionals and keen enthusiasts who regularly capture wide-angle perspectives – such as landscape, travel and architectural photographers – or those who typically shoot in confined spaces. The lens offers wide-ranging flexibility, with first-class optical construction and a fixed f/4 aperture providing clear, sharp results even in the most challenging situations.

The new EF16-35mm f/4L IS USM is Canon’s first ultra-wide L-series lens to feature Canon’s signature optical Image Stabilizer (IS) technology, which offers a four-stop advantage over non-IS lenses and helps to ensure that shots are always captured with precise detail. The newly-designed IS system also features a number of additional improvements, including gyro sensors for greater accuracy in traditional shooting or when capturing panning motion.

First-class optical technology and design

Photographers can quickly achieve focus using the powerful, fast and silent autofocusing (AF) performance of Canon’s pioneering ring-type Ultrasonic Motor (USM) – ideal when shooting in AI Servo AF mode. Complete control over image composition is also possible using the lens’s full-time focus ring in manual and AF modes, giving photographers the freedom to fine tune focus on demand.

Designed to deliver the highest image quality, the lens’s optical structure includes two Ultra-low Dispersion (UD) elements to minimise chromatic aberration and eliminate colour blurring. Super Spectra Coatings reduce ghosting and flare, while fluorine coatings on the front and rear elements prevent dust and water drops sticking to help ensure optimum image quality and performance.

The high grade design includes a compact and lightweight shape that is comfortable to hold, whilst providing intuitive access to the zoom and focus control. A leather-texture coating also provides a professional feel.

The new EF16-35mm f/4 IS USM is weather resistant and offers a 4-stop advantage thanks to Image Stabilizer technology.

EF-S10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM: see more, capture more

The new EF-S10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM is the ideal lens for people looking to widen the range of their existing kit and get more into every shot. The lens’s impressive ultra-wide 10-18mm focal length provides the freedom to capture a diverse range of scenes, from holiday snaps of vast, sweeping landscapes and cityscapes, to wide group shots in confined spaces at parties and celebrations. Using Canon’s expertise in optics, the wide focal range is packed into an impressively compact and lightweight lens, which can comfortably fit into kitbags, or even small handbags and backpacks when travelling.


For the keen amateur photographer on the move, the new EF-S10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM packs in plenty of detail with Image Stabilizer technology giving a 4-stop advantage in all lighting situations.

The new EF-S10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM gives enthusiast photographers an even wider view of the world.



Consistently sharp and steady handheld results are provided by a four-stop optical Image Stabilizer. Additionally, Canon’s STM (Stepper Motor) technology ensures high-performance AF when shooting stills, and near-silent AF when capturing movies. Combined with EOS DSLRs that support AF during movies, STM technology provides fluid continuous focus, ideal for tracking moving subjects, and providing smooth transitions as focus shifts between subjects. Quiet focusing also prevents unwanted noise interfering with movie soundtracks, ensuring that recorded sound is both crisp and faithful to the original scene. The EF-S10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM features both a UD lens element and a range of optimised lens coatings to deliver outstanding image performance at all focal lengths.

Small enough to be packed into the tiniest of spaces, the EF-S10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM is a lightweight lens which is sure to be a favourite among keen amateur photographers.

EF-S10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM key features


  • Ultra wide-angle zoom for APS-C EOS DSLRs
  • Lightweight and compact
  • Smooth, near-silent STM focusing
  • 4-stop optical Image Stabilizer
