Canon Telephoto Fixed Lenses for sale

Browse through the complete range of Canon Telephoto fixed lenses in South Africa.

Canon offers you image quality, compact size and wide maximum apertures with their range of fixed telephoto lenses. Telephoto Fixed Lenses are lenses with a fixed longer focal length than standard lenses, giving a narrow field of view and a stunningly magnified image. Telephoto lenses are perfect for making distant objects fill your image frame, but they can be equally useful for capturing closer subjects.

Canon’s Fixed Telephoto lenses have wide apertures, making them faster than their zoom counterparts. This allows for these lenses to be used in low-light situations and still deliver sharp, brilliant images.

Things to know about your Canon Fixed Telephoto Lens:

Weight

With few moving parts, Canon prime lenses are more compact and lighter than their zoom siblings – perfect if you want to travel light.

Bigger is better

The ‘fastest’ lenses have apertures of f/1.4 or f/1.8 and enable higher shutter speeds and reduced depth of field. This makes them more useful than f/2.8 lenses.

They make you work harder

With a zoom lens, it’s easy to get lazy and zoom in and out, letting the lens do the hard work for you, but a prime lens makes you think about the shot more, forcing you to be more creative.

Sitting pretty

A 50mm lens on an APS-C format body is a great combination for portraiture. A maximum aperture of f/1.4 or f/1.8 enables you to blur the background much more effectively than you’d be able to with a budget 18-55mm zoom lens.

Choose your focal length

Before diving in and getting your prime lens, do your research. You may think you need a 24mm prime, but a quick look at the focal lengths you use most in a light room might reveal that in actual fact you tend to shoot more at 28 or 35mm.
