EF 11–24mm ƒ/4L
While it’s likely one of the sharpest and fastest ultra-wide zooms of any system on the market, the EF 11–24mm ƒ/4L has a built-in hood that makes attaching protective or creative filters a costly and cumbersome undertaking.
EF 24–105mm ƒ/4L IS II
With its impressive range, the EF 24–105mm ƒ/4L IS II is on the brink of being classified as a superzoom, but the company’s restraint in extending its reach is what allows it to provide you with such exceptionally sharp images.
EF 16–35mm ƒ/2.8L III
If you prefer a slightly wider zoom range, few options can compete with the EF 16–35mm ƒ/2.8L III . It features a pair of specialized coatings designed to drastically reduce incidences of ghosting, flare, and chromatic aberrations.
EF 35mm ƒ/1.4L II
If you do a lot of street photography, the EF 35mm ƒ/1.4L II will likely spend more time on your camera than any other piece of glass. It’s a great focal length for capturing nearby moments along with enough of the scene to provide context.
EF 100mm ƒ/2.8L IS
The EF 100mm ƒ/2.8L IS takes superb macro photos and has a minimum focusing distance of just under one foot. Its image stabilization can compensate for a small amount of shake, making it much easier to capture handheld shots in the field.
EF 85mm ƒ/1.4L IS
If people are your primary subjects, you might gravitate toward the EF 85mm ƒ/1.4L IS for a number of reasons. Not only does it render skin tones beautifully, but its focal length accurately captures faces as they appear to the human eye.
RF 50mm f/1.2L USM

EF 70–200mm ƒ/2.8L IS III
The EF 70–200mm ƒ/2.8L IS III is a must-have for many event and wedding photographers who need to capture their images while maintaining a respectful distance from the action. Its internal focusing system is barely audible.
RF 24-105mm f/4L
The RF 24-105mm f/4L offers shooters who’ve just invested in the company’s new mirrorless system a great all-around shooting option. Like other models in its lineup, it features a dedicated control ring that you can assign to change aperture, ISO, and more.
