      I own this lens for a few months now. I bought it to replace the older 16-35 mark I which looked a little soft at the corners wide open. This one is fantastic! Wide open or not it is sharp from corner to corner, it is build to last and the autofocus is excellent. The only downside for me is the 82mm filter but you can't have averything in life, can you?

      If your used to the image quality of a prime lens, this isn't the lens for you. All of the pros combined can't overcome the one con, distortion. I spent a lot of money on this lens; however, I think I'm going to trade it in on the faster 24mm prime.

      Must have for 5D Mark iii

      By 

      from San Francisco, CA

      Comments about Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM Ultra Wide Zoom Camera Lens:

      I bought this lens for my 5D mark ii and saw some of the issues others have raised. When I moved up to the 5D mark iii a few years ago I have had nothing but spectacular results from it. So if you have the 5D mark iii (or the upcoming hi-res bodies) do yourself a favor and buy it. If you have a different camera body I would save some money (and weight) and get the new f4 which is also a wonderful lens.

      Wish it was sturdier

      By 

      from Dallas, TX

      Comments about Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM Ultra Wide Zoom Camera Lens:

      The good: lens is very sharp for a zoom. Of my 6 L lenses, I use this one the most. The bad: mine is going in for repair for the 3rd time. The bayonet plastic is too weak for this heavy of a lens. All 3 incidents occurred while the lens was attached to the camera. None of the occurrences were high impact.

      no sharp at all

      By 

      from NY

      Comments about Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM Ultra Wide Zoom Camera Lens:

      This is the third time i try to make a review. Honestly i don't understand why do you reject. Anyhow let talk a bit about this lens. I got a brand new lens, and i think it is defected and not sharp at all. Today i tried to take a long exposure picture on a tripod and even that didnt help with the sharpness at all. I've read lot of people having problem with this lens but couldn't believe it until i use it. I'm so disappointed that i don't know whether to make an effort to return it to canon or not. Really im not happy. I spend lots of money and loved this lens because it was my first L lens. Yes it is my first L lens. So what? I cannot force anyone to buy it or avoid it, what i can tell is that this L lens is not at the same level to prove that belongs to the L family. But who am i to say that? Good luck. P.S. I'm going to copy this message and make a screen shot as well. So in case you reject it i will upload the image to all the internet reviews. I very unhappy and very disappointed.

      Professional Performer

      By 

      from Orange Beach, Alabama and Gatlinburg, Tennessee

      Comments about Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM Ultra Wide Zoom Camera Lens:

      I have used this lens for almost four years. With the understanding that objects at the edges will have wide angle distortion. This lens is a "professional performer." It produces images that sell and please the most discriminate... excellent color, contrast, sharpness... Canon engineers have created a lens that can exaggerate or render true the images you are capturing. I highly recommend this lens for the novice or skilled professional. Well worth the money spent. A precision image capturing instrument.

      It's Worth The Money

      By 

      from Framingham Ma

      Comments about Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM Ultra Wide Zoom Camera Lens:

      I love to take a lot of pictures lighthouse and a lot of landscape shots. I also have the EFS 15mm to 85mm lens as well, and even though I love that lens. The ef 16 to 35mm extra wide angle l series lens is a superior lens for landscaping and also if a person wants to take indoor low light pictures for a function it worth it. I am going Israel this year and I am going to be taking that lens with me. It's my one of my favorite Lenses that I have and I use the most. I recommend this lens to anyone. Plus you can't beat canon products, and also because I have two cameras an EOS 60D and an EOS 6D, and I love both cameras and all my other lenses from Canon Also Canon tech support department is great also. When I was looking into purchasing this lens, the tech person had said if your going to spend this kind of money, then he wanted to make sure I knew what I was buying. I am very pleased this lens and also pleased with them.

        Best Uses

          Comments about Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM Ultra Wide Zoom Camera Lens:

          I have several L lenses. They are so heavy and I am paranoid about knocking them out of alignment. I read how much people loved this lens for landscape and interior shots. I bought two used and they were dogs. So I popped for a new one. I am so happy with it. I have taken it to Spain, France and England. This lens is fabulous for vacationing. You can shoot huge vistas and the inside of small spaces. The image quality is terrific and the photos are worth every bit of the trouble to bring it. In retrospect; If I had to have only one lens for my 5DmarkIII it would be this lens. Yes it is quite expensive but buying it new is the only way to go (and yes I have spent tons of money with CPS on cleanings, and recalibrations on lenses and cameras.) If you want to know what to buy... you will never be disappointed having this 'go to' lens.

            Comments about Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM Ultra Wide Zoom Camera Lens:

            This is a large, heavy, high quality lens. Focus is fast. Build quality is in line with other Canon L-series lenses. This lens is sharp from corner to corne, and has excellent contrast. If you're shooting with a high quality full frame sensor, the lens is so sharp in the center that you can crop 50 to 90% and still retain reasonable sharpness for small objects. Last week, I shot a one-inch long harlequin shrimp with the lens at 35mm in a fisheye dome port, and was able to crop the image to the shrimp with enough detail to where it was suitable for posting on the web. It's expensive, but if image quality is paramount, is worth it!

            Performance Does Not Compare to Primes

            By 

            from Undisclosed

            Pros

            • decent 'all around' lens
            • Well constructed

            Cons

            • not nearly as sharp as the 14mm 2.8 l or 24 1.4l

            Best Uses

              Comments about Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM Ultra Wide Zoom Camera Lens:

              This is a well built, good quality lens, but the image sharpness does not compare to the primes. For wide angle work I tend to use the 8-15 L fisheye, the 14 mm 2.8 L, and the 24 1.4L. I thought that this lens might eliminate having to carry both the 14 and the 24. I was wrong. If you are an amateur, you will most likely be thrilled with this lens. It produces acceptable images, and gives you a decent range in one lens. If you are a pro and sharpness is critical to you, stick with the lenses mentioned above and forget the wide angle zooms. For situations like weddings where you often do not have the time to change lenses on the fly, this lens is a good choice. (although I still find that the 14 and 24 work just fine. If the 14 is too wide, it is so sharp you can simply crop it in later.

                Comments about Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM Ultra Wide Zoom Camera Lens:

                No distortion with this lens like I have read about on some of the other reviews. Must be OE on there part. Lens works great on 50D (1.6 x Crop Camera). I plan to go FF one day with maybe a 5D (Mark II or III). This lens completes my needs for wide angle, and lens needs that you would expect from a lens with the Red Ring around the end of the Barrel. I previously purchased the 24-70mm 2.8, 70-200mm 2.8 IS, 50mm 1.4, 24-105mm 4, and now the 16-35mm 2.8 (in that order). This lens lives up to the L! Never shot with the 10-22mm or 17-40mm so I can't compare this lens to those... so read there reviews. If you are reading this review; I'd say that you are considering the purchase. If you can stomach the price; "Purchase this Lens"! It was stated earlier in a review; but You Get what You Pay for! Invest in the Glass!

                Excellent Lens Except One feature

                from n/a

                Pros

                • Lightweight
                • Sharp

                Cons

                • Filter size

                Best Uses

                  Comments about Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM Ultra Wide Zoom Camera Lens:

                  This is truly a fast and fantastic lens. I've reviewed the MTF charts beforehand and as compared to its predecessor (Mki) the edge detail is greatly improved. it's lightweight, comfortable to hold and works well in low light. My one and only and biggest gripe is the 82mm filter size that is needed. 82mm is not only the most expensive but also very difficult to find as of 1/31/12. As an example try and find the B&W #110 neutral density 10 stop filter..forget it and if you can find it the price is over $200 as with the polarizers being about $100 and the list goes on. This would be my only caution to you on this lens before buying. Not s smart move on Canon's part.
