Whether taking a shot of a changing sunset or the beauty of a smile, you can be sure you'll capture the moment with both lenses available to change on the go. An L-Series lens for high optical performance, the <b> EF 17-40mm f/4L USM </b> brings out detail in wide shots from dramatic landscapes to group pictures, and is weather-resistant for reliable use even in harsh conditions. The <b> EF 50mm f/1.4 USM </b> is compact, lightweight and highly portable with a bright maximum aperture of f/1.4 for excellent low-light performance and beautiful background blur ideal for portraits. Both lenses use an ultrasonic motor that delivers fast and near-silent autofocusing with full-time manual focus, helping to ensure you can take the shot when you want, how you want. <b> EF 17-40mm f/4L USM </b> A new and affordable L-series ultra-wide-angle zoom lens that's ideal for both film and digital SLRs. Superior optics are assured by the use of three Aspherical lens elements, in addition to a Super UD (Ultra-low Dispersion) glass element. Optical coatings are optimized for use with digital cameras. This lens focuses as close as 11 inches (0.28m), and offers both Canon's full-time manual focus and a powerful ring-type USM for fast and silent AF. It has a constant f/4 maximum aperture, and offers the choice of screw-in 77mm filters or a holder in the rear of the lens for up to three gel filters. Finally, it offers weather-resistant construction similar to other high-end L-series lenses. <b> EF 50mm f/1.4 USM </b> Standard lens featuring superb quality and portability. Two high-refraction lens elements and new Gaussian optics eliminate astigmatism and suppress astigmatic difference. Crisp images with little flare are obtained even at the maximum aperture. With its fast maximum aperture and rapid focusing system, the compact, high performance EF 50mm f/1.4 USM standard lens can be relied on for superb performance in any field of photography.
