Canon L-Series Lenses

What are Canon L-Series Lenses?

Camera bodies come and go, megapixels go up year-on-year, features get new and improved, and occasionally we'll see something groundbreaking. Camera lenses, on the other hand, can last a lifetime if properly cared for.

2017 marked 30 years since Canon introduced their EOS camera system, and 30 years since their released their first EF camera lens. Since then, they've gone on to produce some of the worlds best camera lenses.

However, there's one range that stands out among the rest. Canon's L-Series lenses are their premium lens range, designed for and used by professionals the world over.

L-series (or 'Luxury Series') is a designation given by Canon to their best lenses, which are easily recognisable by their distinctive red ring and off-white paint job on telephoto lenses.

Canon L-Series lenses are noted for their superior optical quality, their durability, weather sealing on some models, and generally out-performing their lower-end counterparts. They are typically 'fast', with wider maximum apertures and lower minimum f/stops, and many contain fluorite or ultra-low dispersion lens elements.
