What Wide Angle Lens To Buy For Canon ((INSTALL))

Most kit lenses include basic wide-angle coverage equivalent to a focal length of 28mm, but this is just a starting point in the world of wide-angle photography. Ultra-wide lenses allow you to squeeze even more into the frame and can deliver spectacular results.

what wide angle lens to buy for canon

One benefit of wider lenses are longer shutter speeds while using your camera handheld. This is because any amount of shake is significantly reduced because there is less movement in the frame if you shake.

This Canon RF lens is an incredibly sharp f/4 wide angle. The Canon RF 14-35mm f/4 features a compact design perfect for real estate photography, travel, and even vlogging. Plus it has image stabilization to give you a few extra stops of light when shooting.

The Canon 16-35mm f/2.8 III is one of those lenses every photographer should have in their bag. The 16-35mm focal range is the ideal range for a wide angle lens. Great for getting everything in frame at 16mm but its 35mm focal length lets you hone in on a subject.

This super tiny lens is perfect for traveling with a cropped sensor. For the price, the Canon 10-18mm is the best wide angle lens for Canon crop sensor. It also has built in stabilization which helps to reduce shake for videos and photos.

You want the best Canon wide angle lens, but don't know where to start. It can be like driving into a traffic roundabout circle and not knowing when to turn. This post article will help you decide the best direction to travel.

You already have your kit lens, but you need to get a wider angle lens for your Canon. It's both good and bad that you have so many choices for getting the right wide angle lens. It's bad because it can be confusing on which lens is best for you. It's good because you know that a good lens is out there for you.

The Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 is the best Canon wide angle lens for APS-C crop cameras. Although it does not have a robust range of focal lengths-most wide angle zooms don't-it's the right focal range for Canon APS-C cameras

The 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 is a great introductory wide angle lens for photographers who are exploring super wide angle photography for the first time. Here are the top 5 EF-S sized wide angle lenses for Canon APS-C in the table below.

The Canon EF 16-35mm f/4.0 is overall the best Canon wide angle lens in terms of value because of it performance and features compared to its price. The Canon EF 17-40mm L f/4.0 lens gets the top recommendation, as shown in the table below, because of its zoom range and it's price.

The 17-40mm lens is the most affordable of all the full frame wide angle lenses, but not necessarily the best. I chose the more expensive 16-35mm f/4.0 because of its modern design, optical quality, and affordable price.

NOTE: I did not include tilt-shift lenses in the table of wide-angle lenses abouve due to their specialized use, but if you want to shoot architecture, there is no better less than the 17mm TS-E. Here's the complete post. Canon Tilt-shift Lens.

Read through this article and get the 3 main considerations you must know in order to make a smart, informed decision. Or, if you are in a hurry and want to skip all the background info and have the Canon Geek just tell you which one to get, then jump to the quick conclusion on the best Canon wide angle lens to get.

Wide angle zoom lenses are more versatile because you can adjust the focal length and your composition by magnifying or reducing the angle of view. When a lens is designed to zoom, there are some compromises due to the properties of optics.

Within the realm of wide angle lens photography, there are specific applications for these lenses that might influence you choice for a decent wide angle lens. Let's take a look at the specific genres of photography where wide angle lenses are needed.

As soon as photography of the stars is mentioned wide angle lenses come to mind. Astrophotography is technically challenging and professional photographers invest in the very best lenses for their nighttime sky photography.

Because of its wide focal length of 24mm, this lens would be great for astrophotography with a full frame camera, but less than ideal in terms of its wide view with an APS-C Canon camera body because of the crop. Click the ad below for more info.

Many of the Canon zoom lenses are good for landscape photography. I recommend a zoom lens over a prime lens so that you can explore a good variety of perspectives and different compositions easier than if you had a wide angle prime.

The kit lenses are wide enough to be considered adequate for shooting landscapes. I've used my EF-S 18-135mm lens on my APS-C crop 90D as well as my EF 24-105mm kit lens with my full frame 5D Mark III with great success.

To get those wider, more scenic views of the world before you, I'd recommend the EF-S 10-18 f/4.5-5.6 for your crop camera. You don't need a fast lens for landscape photography. It's a great way for beginners to break into landscape photography. Here's the complete post on Canon Landscape Lenses.

For full frame Canon shooters, I like the old faithful EF 17-40mm L. It's likely been the best selling and most popular wide angle zoom that Canon has ever had. It has a little bit more versatility at the long end and can double up for other types of photography because of its 40mm longest focal length.

You're wondering what lens vloggers use and if wide angle lenses are good for vlogging. Vloggers use APS-C cameras and Canon's EF-S wide angle lenses are great for vlogging. Quiet real-time focusing is an important feature to have in your vlogging lens.

FULL FRAME. If you have a full frame Canon, like the 6D Mark II, 5D Mark III, or 5D Mark IV, the best wide angle for you is the Canon EF 16-35mm f/4.0. It take great photos and is good for your checking account.

On the flip side, a wide lens could hinder rather than help your photos in some scenarios. Portrait photographers usually choose a higher focal length to avoid unflattering distortion that comes with wider lenses. And a telephoto lens is almost always the pick for sports, wildlife photography, or any time you need to get close to the action.

Any lens with a focal length under 35mm is considered a wide-angle lens, but a 14mm lens is a completely different ball game than a 35mm. You can generally place wide-angle lenses into one of three subcategories:

Ranging from 16mm to 24mm, these lenses are wide without falling into fish-eye territory, where extreme stretching of the frame occurs. The sweet spot for most landscape photography lies between these focal lengths, but you can use this range for any number of everyday uses too.

DistortionDistortion is the number one issue to watch out for when you use a wide-angle lens. Barrel distortion, where straight lines appear to bow outward, will often show up in your photos the wider you go. Be especially mindful of this when you photograph people, and watch out for objects at the edges of your frame.

I'm finally upgrading my camera (Rebel EOS SL1) to a M50 Mark II. I am looking for recommendations for wide-angle lens for it. I have somethings coming up after I order the new camera that I would need it for. Thanks in advance!!

I have an EOS M5 and use a Canon EF-M 22mm f/2 STM with it.... moderate wide (comparable to 35mm lens on full frame) with autofocus. That's my "walk-around lens" for street photograph. It's an extremely compact lens and quite sharp. The only thing I don't like is the silly little "lens hood" Canon offers for it. I instead bought a generic screw-in, metal hood that nearly doubles the size of the lens, but the whole thing is still quite compact and the hood does it's job very well.

When I need even wider, I use a 12mm f/2.8 "Meike" lens (also sells under the Opteka brand). This is equiv. to approx. 20mm on full frame. It's a fully manual lens... both the focus and aperture control. But for my purposes, this is no problem. I tried using other fully manual lenses...less wide and short tele,... but ended up switching to autofocus and electronic aperture control with all of them. Of my four prime lenses that I use now on the M5, only this very wide 12mm lens is manual. There's such deep depth of field with a wide lens, especially when it's stopped down, manual focus isn't a problem for me.

There are only a few wide primes in EF-M mount with autofocus... the Canon EF-M 22mm mentioned above, a rather large Sigma 16mm f/1.4 (FF = 25mm) and a Viltrox 23mm f/1.4 (only sold in silver finish, FF = 35mm). All three are excellent lenses. In fact, the Sigma and Viltrox might be even better built than the Canon!

If you want a zoom with autofocus, well it's pretty easy... there's only one truly wide angle zoom with AF: Canon EF-M 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM. By all reviews, this is an excellent lens, too. I haven't used it personally. Reasonably small and light, it also is the only wide angle I'm aware of with Image Stabilization. To keep it compact and fairly affordable, it uses a variable aperture and isn't particularly "fast". Some of the primes are two or more stops "faster". However, often large apertures aren't all that necessary for wide angle work. More often than not we're stopping this type of lens down to middle apertures anyway.

Finally, you probably got an EF-M 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM kit lens with your camera, which also goes fairly wide (16mm on APS-C = 24mm on FF). If you didn't get this with your current camera, but want a 15-45mm, you can probably get it at a very fair price in kit with the new camera. .

If you are shooting with a Canon DSLR, the next lens we recommend is the Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM as your telephoto and, if you have an APS-C body, the Canon EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM for a wide-angle option. If macro is your thing, start with the Sigma 70mm F2.8 DG Macro Art. Or for a kit-lens upgrade for APS-C bodies, go with the Tamron 18-200mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC.

Hi I'm new to the forum. I always hire out a professional photog for my real estate photos however have thought that with the amount that I pay them, I could buy my own wide angle lens to do on my own. 041b061a72
