Best Lenses for Canon EOS-1D X Mark II

With a 20.2MP full-frame sensor and 16 fps, the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II is officially the best Canon has to offer.

Because the camera is good for both still and action video photography, the lenses we recommend are best for all different types of photography.

That includes telephoto for outdoor and indoor sports/wildlife, wider lenses for nature work, and standard range for portrait, weddings and general photography.

Besides Canon’s awesome L lenses, you will also find a couple of Sigma’s picks that we find better for the price. Some of them are actually sharper and cheaper than Canon’s lens at the same length. Ain’t no chance on earth we’re able to ignore something similar to that.

We cover 4 various sorts of lenses:

  • Wideangle – Useful for capturing a whole lot in your picture (usually from 8 to 35mm)
  • Regular – Where most photography happens (from 35 to 85mm)
  • Telephoto – For subjects a long way away (85 to 600mm, just a few lenses that increase)
  • Macro – 1:1 ratio that magnifies your at the mercy of true to life-size (usually from 60 to 180mm)

Maybe you’re centered on just one specific kind of photography, or probably you like shooting everything. In both instances, this guidebook is for you.

Since we don’t know very well what lenses you already own, you may see a thing that you already have. You don’t need to buy it again.
