Best Canon Lenses

Article Contents

The SLR camera is the essential tool for the serious photographer and one of the reasons it creates high quality images is because it has the ability to use interchangeable lenses. Apart from the image sensor (which affects resolution capabilities), the lens will have the largest influence on the look of the image. They control the framing, the depth of field, the amount of light that can pass through for exposure, and so much more. Having an amazing camera isn’t enough to produce world-class images, you also need to have lenses that can step up to the job. Here are the best lenses for Canon cameras.

Best Canon Zoom Lens:

We may very well be living in the golden age of zoom lenses. Never in the history of photography have hobbyists and professionals had access to so many zooms that rival primes for sharpness and auto focus speed. In fact, it's not unheard of nowadays for a professional photographer to only have zooms in their bag. In fact, not too long ago professional photographers often only worked with primes!

It's certainly easy to see why zooms are so popular. With one lens you have access to an entire range of focal lengths, making them extremely convenient to have on hand. Why stuff your bag, and stress your back carrying around several lenses when one lens can do all those jobs? While some professional zoom lenses are quite weighty themselves, even the heaviest professional zoom weighs less than the sum total of primes they replace.

Many professional zooms are constant aperture lenses, meaning that over the entirety of their zoom range they’re able to maintain the same aperture. Many consumer-grade zooms are variable aperture lenses, which as you'd guess, have a maximum aperture that changes over the length of their zoom ranges. This can be an issue if you set an exposure at one focal length, zoom out to another focal length and the aperture changes which throws off either the exposure or the depth-of-field.

Many zooms also offer nice options like image stabilization. All of Canon's current pro-level zooms have state-of-the-art image stabilization which can really save the day when there's not enough light to hand-hold without getting a shaky image. The image stabilization mechanisms add significant cost and also add considerable heft. That's something to consider when deciding between models that offer image stabilization and those that don't.

The best Canon zoom lenses we’ve chosen for this list are super sharp across their entire range. Zoom lenses no longer have to compromise on sharpness and none of these zooms do. These lenses were also chosen because they offer consistent image quality across their range. Many lesser zooms are really great at their long end but become a distorted mess once you reach their short end. These five lenses offer consistently great image quality regardless of where you are in their zoom range.

These five lenses also offer brilliant image stabilization, often saving your bacon when there's not enough light to allow you to hand-hold and keep things tack sharp. Some of these picks are also weather-sealed, too, making them more robust and resilient in a variety of weather conditions. Others are even programmable, allowing you to fine tune the zoom's performance without having to go through the hassle of sending it in to the manufacturer.

            Best Budget Canon Zoom Lens:

            Zoom lenses are loved for their versatility but that versatility often comes at a rather shocking price. But, it doesn't always have to be that way. There are plenty of Canon zoom lenses for under $500. The lower price point may mean making a few sacrifices, but most won't even be noticed. These picks were chosen for both their price and versatility, and the longer zooms still include optical image stabilization despite the low price. Here are the best budget zooms for Canon.

                      Best Canon Telephoto Lens:

                      Telephoto lenses offer the ability to bring subjects up close, but this feature often makes these lenses expensive and slow. So what are the best options out there? Telephoto lenses can be either fixed or zoom lenses, and while fixed lenses will get you a faster lens for a better price, they are not as versatile. Most consumers prefer the versatility of zoom lenses when shopping for a telephoto, but there are some great fixed options out there too. These five lenses were selected as the top because they have either a fast aperture or a wide zoom range, an image stabilization system and a reputation for sharp, high quality images. Here are the best telephoto lenses for Canon cameras.

                                Best Budget Canon Telephoto Lens:

                                Telephoto lenses allow you to get shots you wouldn't get with smaller lenses because of their ability to bring the subject in close. This ability, however, typically comes at a cost. There are, however, some nice telephoto lenses for Canon cameras that won't break the bank. These budget lenses tend to be a bit slower than their several thousand dollar siblings, but still offer plenty of value. The telephoto budget lenses on this list were chosen because they are priced around or under $500, have smooth auto-focusing, aren't too bulky and include optical image stabilization if over 100mm. Here are the very best budget friendly telephoto lenses for Canon.

                                Canon EF-S 55-250mm F4-5.6 IS STM Lens for Canon SLR Cameras

                                        Best Canon Prime Lens:

                                        A good prime lens has a few big advantages over zoom lenses, offering a sharpness no zoom lens can match. Some professional zooms come a lot closer than they used to, but primes still hold the sharpness crown. Also, a good prime lens will be "faster" than a zoom lens which means it will have a larger aperture and let in more light, reducing the need to use a slower shutter speed to achieve a proper exposure. A larger aperture also gives you a shallower depth of field which can really help isolate a subject or point of focus in a dreamy, artistic way. Prime lenses can't match zooms for convenience, since zooms offer a range of focal lengths in one lens body, but they don't try to. What a good zoom does do, however, is give you supreme image quality for its focal length.

                                        How do you know which prime is right for you? One clever way is to organize you photo collection according to focal length used. There is even an app that will do this for you if you don't use Lightroom or Aperture. If you do use Lightroom or Aperture, you're just a few simple clicks away (In Lightroom: Metadata -> Lens -> Focal Length). Once organized by focal length, simply look at which focal length most for your pictures were taken in and that's the prime for you to look for.

                                        The top of the market primes used to be the sole domain of first party offerings, like Canon or Nikon, especially when autofocus was desired, or perhaps some expensive and boutique names, like Zeiss or Leica. Not anymore. Sigma have stepped up their game and now produce some of the nicest optics on the market. Even niche makers, like Lensbaby and Samyang, have produced some high quality optics that are legitimate, reliable workhorses, especially for the cost.

                                        The following best Canon prime lenses were chosen first and foremost for their image quality. Prime lenses are capable of best-of-the-best optical sharpness, and the lenses on this list prove it. Prime lenses are also market leaders for artifact reduction, like flare, chromatic aberration, and distortion, with all the selections listed here more than capable of combating all of these unwanted effects. The lenses here are also very well-built so you can expect each of these lenses to provides several years of reliable service.

                                                  Best Canon Wide-angle Lens:

                                                  Wide angle lenses capture life almost as you see it. Excellent for landscapes, architecture and more, every photographer should have a lens with wide angle capability in their kit. The wide angle lenses on this list were chosen because they have a 15-35mm perspective, a fast aperture and a low minimum focusing distance for added versatility. Here are the best wide angle lenses for Canon cameras.

                                                  Canon EF 16-35mm USM Ultra Wide Angle Zoom Lens

                                                            Having a lens with wide-angle capabilities is a must to achieve a wide variety of shots. Wide angle lenses are excellent for landscapes and architectures but can also be used for events and general photography as well. The smaller the focal length is, the more distorted the image will look; around 35mm will look very normal, but you can get some unique shots with ultra-wide angles too. But shooting with a wide-angle lens doesn't have to be super expensive. These five lenses were chosen because they are all $600 or less but still have apertures of f2.8 or faster, nice wide perspectives and a handful of other features.

In order for a lens to be considered macro, it must have a 1:1 ratio or betterwhich means that the camera will capture the object at life-size, or larger. Macro lenses also allow for focusing on objects that are close to the lens. The best macro lenses for Canon cameras capture sharp close-ups, focus as close as 12-inch away or less and have a fast aperture of at least f2.8 or less. Here are our top picks for the best Canon-compatible macro lenses.

Fisheye lenses are also often used in scientific applications and for capturing atmospheric photos. So what makes a good fisheye lens? The fisheye lenses for Canon cameras on this list were chosen because they are 10mm or less, have macro capabilities and are compact. Since most fisheye lenses are used for wide landscape shots, a low f-number isn't quite as important as in other lenses, but should still be at f4 or less. Here are the very best Canon fisheye lenses.
