zoom camera slr 35mm

Taking pictures is a favorite pastime of many.

But with so many different cameras and accessories to choose from, how is a person to choose the right picture-taking mechanism for them?

The Canon organization has long since been known as one of the top makers of cameras and their subsequent attachments, of which the Canon wide angle lens has become.

Coming in many zoom sizes and with different features and a combination of prices, the Canon wide angle lens is the ideal attachment for photographer aficionados and amateurs alike.

What are the various Canon wide angle lenses offered?

Canon EF-S 10-22mm F/3.5-4.5 USM Wide Angle Zoom Lens

Fitting the EOS 20D, 30D, 40D, 50D, and Digital Rebel SLR cameras, and equivalent to a zoom of 16 to 35mm, this Canon wide angle lens performs at a superior level due to its optics that were carefully designed by the Canon professionals.

Featuring four different elements (three aspherical lens elements and one Super-UD, or ultra-low dispersion element), the image quality of this Canon wide angle lens simply cannot be topped. A ring-type USM (ultrasonic motor) lens gives the user fast and quiet autofocus (AF) capabilities as well as full-fledged manual focus options with a simple turn of the ring.

This particular lens is also able to focus as close as 9.5 inches away from the subject being photographed, and can take pictures of something with the tiny size of 3.6 by 5.4 inches!
This Canon wide angle lens is also easy to carry for its small size and slight weight for a lens of its zooming caliber.

Canon EF 35mm F/2 Wide Angle Lens

Given a 4.5 of 5 star rating on most review sites, this Canon wide angle lens has a minimum focusing distance of only 25 centimeters, which gives the camera’s user the ability to get closer to his subject but still get a wide-angle effect on the picture being taken. Portraits also come out exceptionally with this wide angle lens.

Not only is the Canon EF 35mm f/2 wide angle lens affordable for the camera hobbyist or professional, it’s also compact in size and light in its total weight, making it easy to carry around for those photo opportunities calling for group shots or other types of pictures where wide focal length is a necessity.

In addition, the lens if a good alternative to the wide angle zoom lenses that are designed for shooting in low light conditions.

As one reviewer stated, “I love this lens. It is excellent for small spaces, like indoor shots. It also has a low enough f stop to let in lots of light which is also important for in-door with no flash. Great for snapshots but also portraits. Professionals as well as amateurs will love this lens.”

Canon EF 17mm – 40mm – F/4.0 Wide Angle Zoom Lens

Another member of the Canon wide angle lens family, the EF17-40mm is an ultra-wide angle zoom lens that performs best on the professional and high amateur series of SLR EOS Canon cameras. While the lens can indeed be used with the SLR analog camera, it is better meant for the SLR digital camera, with its imaging sensor being smaller than the standard 35mm format.

When used on the SLR digital camera, the Canon EF 17-40mm wide angle lens is capable of producing an angle view that is almost equivalent to the 28-70mm lens used on the 35mm camera, making this a top standard zoom lens for customers shopping around for this kind of camera attachment.

The minimum distance for focusing using the Canon EF 17-40mm wide angle lens is 28mm, spanning the entire range of the zoom area. Meanwhile, the autofocus works both silently and quickly due to its central processing unit that contains an improved autofocus algorithm. In addition, the autofocus mode can easily be overridden by the user to make a switch to manual focus mode.

Because this lens has been built to be highly resistant to moisture and dust particles, it is best used in environments which are on the harsh side.

No matter what Canon wide angle lens a consumer chooses, beautiful pictures to turn into framers is the end result.
