Pros: very sharp even wide open, solid constuction, helpfull IS low price for such a great Canon L lens!

Cons: none.... the small lens hood will not give much protection but that's typical for most wide angel zooms

Opinion: By far the sharpest of all Canon wide angel zooms! Solid construction and image stabilizer will make this gerat lens a real bargain! Visibly sharper in the image corners at 16mm than the 16-35 2.8 L II on full frame and way much better than the 17-40L that had mushy and soft corners form 17-20mm even at f11 (f4 or f5.6 was unusable soft from 17 to 20mm on two copies of the 17-40 I used some years ago)

Pros: There's an important notice in Opinion section! Incredible sharpness across a frame on every focal length and aperture. Low price that seems to be the lowest in connection with sharpness it delivers among all L lenses I've ever used. A weather sealed body with a gasket, a comparatively small and convenient lens hood (takes not so much space in my bag like 17-40 lens hood), popular and affordable 77mm filter thread, image stabilization that's quite handy, image quite compact for an ultra-wide zoom.

Cons: Can't make coffee & toasts.

Opinion: https://yadi.sk/d/JRe0ArOkhL6nr Here are some raw (*.CR2) test shots with 16-35/4 L IS lens on my 6D at apertures 4.0 and 8.0. These shots are more telltale than words. Simply download files (find and press a downward arrow) and open locally with smth like DPP or ACR. I must only add that having experience of using 5 L lenses and 2 ZE lenses I was shocked by sharpness of this gem from Canon when I took first shots. Natural color reproduction, high contrast, uniform sharpness across a frame with only slight degradation in outermost corners, not a trace of softness of any visible CA, low and easy correctable distortion and vignetting. Beware of minor field curvature esp. on the long end. For max acuity nail focus on a side-located object through LV. Speaking emotionally I think I'm lucky with the lens or Canon finally made an almost perfect and affordable ultra-wide zoom or both. P.S. check on my flickr page for shots taken with this lens (still pending). An important notice (for pixel peepers)! I've been shooting with the lens for a week and that's what I found. 1. IS may and does degrade IQ making sharpness across a frame non-uniform. I believe IS in a ultra-wide lens acts like a tilt-shift unit making unfavorable and uncontrolled shift movements at the moment of capturing a shot. OTOH IS on mode is fine for videographers. With disabled IS the lens still captures sharp images as usual. 2. The lens has got a mild field curvature on focal length between 24 and 35 mm maximizing at 35mm. Hyper focal focusing is not effectively applicable with this lens. Corner objects are sharper if they closer to the camera. Increasing aperture makes close objects more sharper than ones on distance. So keep this in mind and use LV focusing or focus bracketing techniques. It must be mentioned that it is common for wide and even normal lenses. N.B. I won't decrease the lens rating because I think that these aspects are not negative yet rather its peculiarities. Simply keep them in mind and produce great pictures with this great lens.

Pros: Always sharpen at all focal points, construction, L Series.

Cons: Nothing at the moment. Some people complain about the 16mm distortion, but it doesn't seem so disastrous to me, and if you put the lens profile in it, you correct it in a flash.

Opinion: Purchased after owning the Canon 17-40 f4 L USM and Sigma 12-24mm f/4.5-5.6 DG HSM I must admit that the progress has been remarkable. Canon colors, sharpness already at TA, non-exasperated minimum focal distortion that decreases as the focal, solid construction and tropicalization grow. Together with 24-70 f4 IS L and 70-200 F4 IS L, it has completed the triad of zoom lenses that are present in my kit with good optical quality that allows me to face 99% of the shots in different photographic areas. For something more in terms of sharpness and/or brightness I rarely resort to the fixes in my possession. Very satisfied with the purchase I highly recommend it.

Pros: Everything, even the price.

Cons: Honestly no one.

Opinion: Super wide-angle lens with amazing performance to say the least that I use on 6DII with immense satisfaction. Sharp angle to angle at any iris and focal length value with very low distortions and equipped with a very efficient stabilizer (maybe not 4 stops, but 2.5/3 definitely). I can't say anything but that it's worth all the money it costs and that gives the distinct feeling of being a lens built to last many years, as is expected from an L series. I highly recommend it to all lovers of wide-angle focal points. Vote 10.

Pros: Quality, weight, auto focus sharpness and stabilization

Cons: Nothing

Opinion: Great!! I use it on 6d ii and given great photos. I use it mainly for landscapes and often with nd filter. Tried to use for set portraits and strett is not suitable. Absurd sharpness let's say I mainly use it from 16 to 24mm. As for the distortion just correct the objective profile in posts even if it doesn't seem as exaggerated to me as many say. At the end excellent lampshon and handbag supplied.
