The Canon EF 20mm f/2.8 USM is a wide angle lens priced to attract the serious hobby or semi professional photographer. The wide angle of view makes the EF 20mm f/2.8 USM ideal for landscape, architecture and interior photography. It can also be used for capturing cityscapes.
It has a large maximum aperture. This comes into its own when you are shooting in lowlight as it allows you to use faster shutter speeds. Canon have included a ultrasonic motor (USM). This helps to reduce the time the lens takes to focus. Extra quality is added by the use of aspherical and UD (Ultra Low Dispersion) elements.
