Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS USM and EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM Lenses Officially Unveiled

Canon 16-35mm f4L IS USM

After plenty of leaks, the Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS USM and EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM lenses have been officially announced. As expected, the 16-35mm f/4L IS USM lens comes in at a significantly higher price point ($1199) than the non-stabilized EF 17-40mm f/4L USM lens.

Canon EF-S 10-18mm STM

However, a nice surprise for Canon APS-C shooters is that the EF-S 10-18mm lens comes in at a very affordable $299. The 10-18mm zoom range (16-28.8mm full frame equivalent) mates nicely with Canon’s current affordable EF-S 18-55mm and 55-250mm lenses, both of which also feature the new STM focus motor.

Alongside the new still photography lenses, Samyang also announced a trio of cine lenses for mirrorless cameras - Samyang 10mm T3.1, 12mm T2.2 and 7.5mm T3.8 lenses.
