Best Landscape Lenses for Canon 90D

By on

Here are the best landscape lenses for Canon 90D DSLR camera. Landscape photography is one of the most popular types among both amateur and professional photographers. So we’ve tried to pick the best landscape lenses for Canon 90D.

Canon EOS 90D (AmazonB&HAdorama) is one of the most popular APS-C DSLR cameras in the world. With an enhanced 32.5 Megapixel CMOS (APS-C) sensor, powerful DIGIC 8 image processor and an ISO range of 100-25000 (expandable to 51200), you’ll achieve sharp, detailed images, even in low-light settings. Perfect for fast-moving subjects, the EOS 90D camera features a 45-point cross-type AF system and EOS iTR AF (face detection) — plus high-speed continuous shooting of up to 10 fps — raising the game for wildlife, landscape and motor sports photography enthusiasts.

The best lenses for landscape are either extremely wide or completely the opposite, in the telephoto range. Since there are a lot of lenses available for your Canon EOS 90D DSLR, we checked the best landscape lenses for Canon 90D and created this list of our very best picks.

The 5 Best Canon 90D Landscape Lenses:

Canon EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM
Tamron 15-30mm f/2.8 Di VC USD
Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS USM
Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II USM
Canon EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM

1. Canon EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM Lens

Get an extreme close-up of the action with this 10-18mm ultra-wide zoom lens. The 10-18mm comes with Image Stabilization up to 4 stops, an STM motor for silent and accurate auto focus (this applies to videos as well) and the same high image quality. This compact and portable lens works great with Canon EOS cameras.

The lens is designed to work on APS-C cameras such as 90D, where its field of view is equivalent to a 16-29mm. It’s great for landscape, traveling, architecture, real estate, clubs/indoor and group shots.

2. Tamron 15-30mm f/2.8 Di VC USD Lens

Wide zooms from third-party lenses that would challenge more expensive Canon zooms are hard to find, but the Tamron 15-30mm f/2.8 Di VC USD does just that.

It was made to rival Nikon’s famous 14-24mm f/2.8G and Canon’s 16-35mm f/2.8 series. None of these have any stabilization added though, and that is perhaps Tamron’s strongest selling point right now. In physical terms, the lens is large and heavy and doesn’t cover the popular 35mm focal length, but as a 24-47mm equivalent on an APS-C-format DSLR, it remains a versatile offering. Combined with its good performance and the lure of built-in stabilization, at around $1,200 it looks very tempting.

The Vibration Reduction (VC) mechanism helps up to 3 stops which means you can shoot with 1/8 where you’d normally have to choose 1/60.

It’s excellent for daily landscape photography, but can also server as an astrophotography lens.

3. Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS USM Lens

The Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS USM is our most recommended lens if you’re looking for the best value for your money and are mainly shooting landscape/cities/static subjects.

With Image Stabilization and and Ultra Sonic Motor, you can shoot in pretty much any situation, be it indoors in low light or late during the day. The EF 16–35mm f/2.8L III USM achieved an impressive 91% overall score and Gold Award from the experts at DPReview. It is an indispensable wide-angle zoom lens for professional and enthusiast photographers who demand superlative operation and performance, in virtually any condition. Combining outstanding image quality, a fast, constant aperture and a rugged design, the EF 16–35mm f/2.8L III USM delivers eye-catching results whether capturing detailed, nuanced landscapes, dramatic interiors and much more.

Image quality is absolutely stunning, it’s sharp in the center and corners and is simply outstanding for the price. Canon’s recent wideangle zoom lenses have been nothing short of amazing. It’s also the lightest of all 16-35mm lenses, including the Tamron (nearly half the weight).

4. Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II USM Lens

If you’re looking for something with even more zoom, the Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II USM provides the best combination of reach and quality. The lens comes with better Image Stabilization, less optical issues at 24mm and 105mm (such as aberrations, vignetting and ghosting), but weighs more and is slightly bigger (125g more).

The 24-70mm is 200g lighter, smaller and costs $400 less than the 24-70mm, whereas the 24-105mm is better if you want the most zoom and rarely use more than one lens.

In general we associate landscape with extreme wide angles, but more often than not, going over 70mm provides for some interesting shots. Sometimes, wide angle lenses can be too wide, therefore having telephoto zoom is a helpful addition.

5. Canon EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM Lens

Mounted on an APS-C sensor based DSLR camera like the Canon 90D, this lens’s focal length is equivalent to a 38mm lens, and that almost makes it a normal/standard rather than a wideangle lens, but the length and f/2.8 are great for nature, traveling, indoor and low light situations. It displays so little distortion it’s hard to notice, especially when stopped down to f/4.

It’s so short you’ll often think you’re shooting with the body cap on. If you dislike carrying around a lot of lenses, or just want something super small to go with your Canon 90D, this is the best option.

These are the best landscape lenses for Canon 90D DSLR camera. Hope this 5 picks of best Canon 90D DSLR suits your needs. Feel free to relay your comments.
