Fluorine coating on front and rear lens surfaces helps reduce smears and fingerprints

To help maintain a clean lens, even after multiple lens changes in sub-optimal conditions, the EF 16–35mm f/2.8L III USM has a specially designed non-stick fluorine coating on its front and rear surfaces. This fluorine coating helps prevent dust, water, oil and other surface residue like fingerprints from sticking to the lens, resulting in quick and easy wiping, without the use of solvents.
