Take it up a step with the Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L Ultra Wide Angle

What does the L stand for in Canon lenses stand for? Luxary

When you see the red line around a Canon lenses that means Luxary Lens. I would love to own one of those. I was told once you can go from a cropped sensor to a full frame sensor and you will notice some difference about your photos. But when you buy good glass… that is when you will notice the biggest difference. Would you agree with that statement?

I am saving my pennies for an L lens so I can see for myself. If I were to trade in my kit lens 18-55mm it would be for the Canon 17-40mm lens!

List price: $1,400.00
Sale price: $729.00

Official Product Description:

Broaden your perspective with the Canon EF 17-40mm ultra-wide-angle zoom lens. Ideal for both film and digital SLR cameras, the lens offers three aspherical lens elements in addition to a Super UD (ultra-low dispersion) glass element, creating superior optics in all conditions. In addition, the lens focuses as close as 11 inches (0.28mm), and offers both Canon’s full-time manual focus and a powerful ring-type ultra-sonic monitor (USM) that produces fast and silent autofocus. Other features include a constant f/4 maximum aperture, the choice of screw-in 77mm filters or a holder in the rear of the lens for up to three gel filters, and optical coatings optimized for use with digital cameras. Boasting weather-resistant construction similar to other high-end L-series cameras, the lens carries a one-year warranty.
