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: Stabilizer, construction, optics, zero vignetting, filters 77 mm,

Cons: Nobody. Only a 35-150 or more of Canon's L-series is missing to complete it.

Opinion: What can I say... I can't part with it. Priceless and in many ways irreplaceable. On APS-C also excellent for portrait. I came from the excellent 24-105 L f 4 IS first series and, noticing that I used the latter at opposite ends of the zoom, I thought of widening the field around 24 mm, sometimes insufficient (APS-C). The stabilizer may seem superfluous but it is not: the proof is in the new corresponding RFs.

Pros: Construction, sharpness, compactness

Cons: nobody

Opinion: I used this landscape lens in conjunction with the Full Frame sensor of my Canon 5D mark IV. I was totally satisfied both for sharpness and for how it is built (excellent sense of compactness that it provides when you take it in hand). An excellent L Series suitable for every landscape need. The always comfortable IS helps freehand in low light conditions. A must to have absolutely in support. I gave it up because I currently dedicate myself only to nature photography.

Pros: sharpening all over the frame at all focal points, weight, stabilizer, tropicalization, performance-related price

Cons: Plastic (excellent, but always better metal)

Opinion: Optics purchased in February 2017, until now it has only given me satisfactions from every point of view, at 16mm freehand I managed to make "long exposures" of waterfalls that I honestly did not think it was possible to do without the help of a tripod! The sharpness is already excellent at f/4 at all focal points, the af is excellent and in addition it is also tropicalized.. The only thing that makes me turn my nose up is the excellent construction, but made with plastic materials, which I honestly do not love!
