Best Event Shooting Lens

Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM Lens

Canon 24-70mm Lens image

Canon EF 24-70mm Lens is the best standard zoom lens for Canon 5D Mark IV right now. The lens produces super sharp images even at wide-aperture and bokeh is awesome. The lens does have the ability to do blazing fast AF when mounted on Canon 5D Mark IV. The lens supports Dual-pixel AF system of Canon 5D Mark IV very effectively without any issue.

The build quality of this lens is matchless. The L series weather sealing allow you to work in any type of situation. But. unfortunately the lens doesn’t have any built-in image stabilization yet.

The Bad: No IS

Best Lens for Shooting Landscapes and architecture

Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L III USM

canon-16-35mm-lens-imageHighly recommended lens for shooting Landscape and Architecture, actually it covers a very vital range. CAs are very well controlled throughout the range. Very minimal barrel distortions even at wide end. I don’t want to make this long, In short the build quality of the lens is exceptional and with the help of its newly developed ultra-sonic AF motor the lens acquire AF in no time with super accuracy. Best lens in its class but it doesn’t have any image stabilization support.

The Good: Best lens in its class

With this lens you actually don’t need any tripod, it’s IS is very effective upto 4.5 stops and you get tack sharp with hand-held shooting.

Sigma 35mm F1.4 ARt Lens image

The Sigma 35mm ART lens is the most popular and highest-rated lens among 5D Mark IV users, once you mount this lens on your camera you will sure forget your kit lens. The lens covers a classic 35mm frame and the optics as well as build quality of Sigma ART series is matchless. The Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) and the Floating Internal Focus System does blazing fast AF with 5D Mark IV. And keep in mind No other standard prime lens that can compete with the image quality of Sigma 35mm F1.4 ART.

The lens cost half as of Canon 35mm F1.4 II lens and during several test the performance of Sigma lens proved slightly better. We highly recommend you to get the 35mm ART for Canon 5D Mark IV camera.

Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens for Canon EF

Sigma 50mm ART Lens image

Normally professional shooters don’t prefer shooting portrait with a 50mm lens, but if you want to know the name of 50mm Lens, I recommend you to  buy the new Sigma 50mm F1.4 ART lens without a second thought. The lens will cost you a lot less than the Canon F1.2 L lens but its performance is way better than Canon 50mm F1.2.

The Good: Best 50mm Lens for Canon

Sigma - Compatibility Issue with Canon 5D Mark IV

canon-5d-mark-iv-image

There is no major issue, as we all know Canon all DSLR camera comes with built-in lens correction tool that corrects Peripheral illumination, Chromatic aberration and Diffraction once the shot is captured. Every Canon EOS camera have lens database inside and apply lens correction algorithm only when native Canon lenses mounted on it.  Lens correction tool doesn’t work with third party lenses and the second thing don’t try to adjust focus ring while lens is on AF mode, Manual Override not available with Sigma lenses.

From Sigma

Thank you for purchasing and using our products.

Please find the following notes on the usage of SIGMA interchangeable lenses for EOS, when attached to Canon EOS 5D Mark IV that is released on September 8th.

  • MO (Manual Override) function is unavailable with this camera (Full-time Manual function can be offered).
  • When using a SIGMA interchangeable lens for EOS, setting the corrections to [Disable] is recommended, as “Lens Correction” functions of the camera, such as Peripheral illumination correction, Chromatic aberration correction, Diffraction correction and Distortion correction are not supported.*

* If those functions are activated, the performance of lenses may not be accurate.
* This is not only for EOS 5D Mark IV, but also for other camera bodies with the same function.

We appreciate your continued support for our company and products.
