About this item

  • This super wide-angle zoom lens allows you to take wide photographs even with digital SLR cameras which have a screen size smaller than 35mm, covering the range from a super wide-angle 17mm to a standard 40mm
  • Three aspherical lens elements which come in two types deliver both a wide zoom range and high image quality, while the super UD lens elements provide excellent correction of the magnification-type chromatic aberration. Innovations such as a lens coating optimized for digital photography help minimize flare and ghosts, which often occur with digital cameras
  • Innovations such as a lens coating optimized for digital photography help minimize flare and ghosts, which often occur with digital cameras. The circular aperture diaphragm which brings out a nuanced blur and the achievement of a closest focusing distance of 0.28m over the whole range of the zoom, not only help you in composition, but the quiet, high-speed autofocus and the outstanding dust-proof1 construction make this lens extremely mobile
  • The front filter mount does not rotate during focusing, so there is no problem when using circular PL filters or other filters, and in combination with the EF70-200mm f/4L IS USM you can get the right shot almost anywhere you go
  • Dust-proof and drip-proof models: EOS 1Ds Mark III, EOS 1Ds Mark II, EOS 1Ds, EOS 1D Mark III, EOS 1D Mark II N, EOS 1D Mark II, EOS 1D, EOS 1V/HS

Product description

Style name:Lens Only

The EF 17-40mm f/4L USM Lens from Canon is a high quality series wide angle zoom lens for full frame and APS-C size DSLR cameras. It combines one high-precision molded glass aspherical element and two replica aspherical lenses to achieve the extended zoom range, while also correcting for common aberrations that arise during zooming. A Super UD (Ultra-low Dispersion) glass element minimizes the chromatic aberration of magnification which tends to occur with wide-angle lenses, to help eliminate color bleed along the edges of the subject and achieve high image contrast and resolution. The lens minimum focusing distance is just 11 (28cm) throughout its entire range of focal lengths, which makes it very useful for close-up work. All of the focusing and zooming action is done internally, with no changes in the size of the lens. Its ultrasonic autofocus motor enables smooth and silent autofocus action and manual focus override in One Shot AF mode allows precise manual focusing without switching into MF mode. It only uses lead-free optics to help the environment, and features a circular diaphragm for improved background blur. The housing is water and dust resistant to help ensure reliable performance for both professionals and enthusiasts. Like many lenses, it uses 77mm filters, but also has a rear gelatin filter slot behind the lens mount that can hold three gel filters. This lens is a Canon EF series lens, indicating it is for use with full-frame cameras. However, it also works with APS-C format DSLRs and offers a 35mm focal length equivalence of 27-64mm, making it an ideal medium-aperture standard zoom lens. A super wide-angle zoom lens for full-frame DSLR and 35mm film cameras that offers a 27-64mm focal length equivalent when used on APS-c size sensors. Uses three aspherical lens elements and Canon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great lens (full frame camera)
Reviewed in Canada on 1 June 2017
This lens is simply great. The only concern I had about it was the sharpness in the corners but being a landscape photographer and shooting mostly at F8 and up, I don't have a single complaint. The zoom range is great, colours are fantastic and build quality is, well it is an L lens! I would definitely recommend for someone who has a full-frame camera. If you are shooting on a crop sensor, this would be more of a walkaround lens than wide angle.

Pretty happy with this lens. The glass seems to be pretty good quality. Love that this lens was available with higher f stop making it more affordable. I take mostly scenery shots so that works for me.
