Canon EF70-200mm F2.8L IS USM

The all-new EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM increases the speed, performance and optical quality of the previous model. The lens includes one fluorite and five UD elements for increased optical quality, a next-generation Optical Image Stabilizer, and is designed for use in the environments typical of rigorous professional use.

More Information
The EF70-200mm has been designed from the outset for optimum performance on Canon’s professional 1-series DSLRs, with their full-frame 35mm and 1.3x crop (APS-H) formats (indeed the original EOS-1D was announced just a month after this lens, with the full-frame EOS-1Ds following a year later). However it’s also fully at home on all of Canon’s APS-C DSLRS, here providing a 112-320mm equivalent angle of view.
This is a lens which can truly be described as a professional workhorse, with robust build (including dust and moisture resistance), wide F2.8 maximum aperture, fast and silent ultrasonic autofocus motor, and optical image stabilization for hand-holding at slow shutter speeds. The optical design is somewhere on the far side of complex; it features 23 elements in 18 groups, with 4 UD elements to provide compensation for chromatic aberration. This gives a ‘high-resolution, high-contrast optical capability’, as demanded from a lens, which needs to perform across a wide range of subjects and conditions.

The Canon 24-105mm f/4L IS EF USM AF Lens is an easy-to-use standard zoom lens that can cover a large zoom area ranging from 24mm wide-angle to 105mm portrait-length telephoto. Incorporating Canon’s highest standards of precision optics, the L-series is Canon’s flagship professional lens range, combining outstanding image performance and ultimate operability with dust and moisture resistant construction.
Constructed with one Super-UD glass element and three aspherical lenses, this lens minimizes chromatic aberration and distortion. The result is excellent picture quality, even at wide apertures. Canon’s ring-type USM gives silent but quick AF, along with full-time manual focus. Moreover, with dust- and moisture-resistant construction, this is a durable yet sophisticated lens that meets the demands of advanced amateur photographers and professional photographers alike.

Canon 24-70mm 2.8L USM Zoom

Excellent EF zoom for Canon EOS cameras. The lens has a constant aperture of 2.8 and auto/manual focus function.

  $70.00 P/DAY + 10% INS & GST – Auckland | Wellington

More Information

Constant aperture of 2.8.

Suitable for use with Canon 5D and RED Epic with the EF mount.

Canon EF 17-40mm F4 L USM

A ultra-wide-angle zoom – compact and light-weight lens, it’s ultra-wide focal range delivers spectacular coverage on film or full-frame digital SLRs. On APS-C DSLRs its field of view resembles a classic ~27-64mm standard zoom on full frame cameras so it is well suited for both formats but with different scopes.

  $90.00 P/DAY + 10% INS & GST – Auckland | Wellington

More Information
An ultra-wide-angle zoom lens that’s ideal for both film and digital SLRs. Superior optics are assured by the use of three Aspherical lens elements, in addition to a Super UD (Ultra-low Dispersion) glass element. Optical coatings are optimized for use with digital cameras. This lens focuses as close as 11 inches (0.28m), and offers both Canon’s full-time manual focus and a powerful ring-type USM for fast and silent AF. It has a constant f/4 maximum aperture, and offers the choice of screw-in 77mm filters or a holder in the rear of the lens for up to three gel filters. Offers weather-resistant construction similar to other high-end L-series lenses.

Canon EF 16-35mm F2.8L II USM

The EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM Lens from Canon is a high performance, water-resistant, ultra wide-angle L-series zoom lens. An f/2.8 maximum aperture is effective in low light situations and offers shallow depth of field focus control. The optical design has been improved to offer better edge-to-edge image quality.

  $90.00 P/DAY + 10% INS & GST – Auckland | Wellington

More Information
All of the “L” lenses deliver optical performance equal to similar fixed focal lengths lenses and provide tight seal structures for dust and water resistance. Distortions and aberrations are remarkably small for a lens of such amazing capabilities. An included petal-style lens hood keeps unwanted light from entering the lens and causing flare and it offers a degree of protection against impact and the elements.

  • Ultra-low dispersion glass and three high-precision aspherical lens elements, each of a different type: ground, replica and GMo minimize aberrations and improve overall image quality.
  • A ring-type Ultrasonic motor (USM) provides quiet, fast, precision auto focusing and predictive tracking.
  • Full-time manual focus override (even in AF mode) is supported.
  • Circular aperture diaphragm produces brilliant out-of-focus characteristics.
  • A petal-type lens hood is included.

Canon EF Extender 2.0x III

The Canon Extender EF 2X III delivers optical performance on par with the finest Canon super telephoto lenses. It features a built-in microcomputer for seamless communication among camera body, lens and extender, careful lens placement and coatings to minimize ghosting, flare and chromatic aberration.

  $30.00 P/DAY + 10% INS & GST – Auckland | Wellington

More Information
The Extender EF 2X III meets necessary standards in terms of rugged, dustproof and water-resistant construction, and should be in every professional’s camera bag. Allowing professional photographers to shoot distant subjects without having to carry a number of heavy lenses with them, the Extender EF 2x III ensures there is no compromise on image quality. The extender features three groups of nine elements, ensuring improved optical performance. All optical elements use Canon’s Super Spectra coating, reducing ghosting and flare to minimise post-processing requirements. A new Fluorine Coating on the front and rear elements makes marks, such as spots left by water or fingerprints, much easier to clean than standard coatings.

The EF Extender 2x III offers a completely new optical design, weather resistant construction, Fluorine coating on the front and rear elements, and higher AF accuracy than the previous model. It also include a redesigned lens release mechanism and an integrated processor for improved communication between the camera and lens.
