The 8 Best Lenses For Your Landscape Photography

Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8 ED AF-S

Even though we don’t recommend this on DX cameras (especially because of the price), we think it would be a mistake not to have one for your full frame! With such beautiful imagery and sturdy, built-to-last construction—plus extremely wonderful AF in low-light situations—the Nikon 24-70mm is an all-around brilliant lens and by far one of the best Nikon landscape lenses.

Though it’s extremely heavy (weighing in at around 900 grams), its versatility is tops. It features 15 lens elements in 11 groups, including three extra-low dispersion glass elements that ensure a fantastic reduction of chromatic aberration while increasing overall sharpness. This means you get more of the image to work with in post. Though you can manipulate a photograph quite a lot in post, learning to compose a stunning photograph takes patience and time.

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


From an ultra-wide 16mm focal length to a classic length of 35mm, the Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8, is what landscape photographers dream of. Shooting with this Canon landscape lens is great for landscape photography because you can capture much of the foreground as well as the background while maintaining a beautifully sharp, crisp focus.
