Pros: Bright, f2.8 row resistance and tropicalization

Cons: Size

Opinion: Of this lens I have heard of each: it is pasty is inaccurate distorts a lot, the brother f4 is much better... etc. I have had it and loved it for many years for the following reasons: I love industrial photography and therefore I have often found myself shooting in the dark, I love the landscape and I love the Street, especially at night. I tried brother is f4, beautiful lens for charity, but it was not for me, sharp almost to be cold stabilized very well, but f2.8 are f2.8. I never regretted the absence of the stabilizer, indeed in the landscapes I always mounted the filter nd. In the night street from the best, of course it must be used as any 16-35, it is not a 35 tip and snaps... the leaks of the lines are obvious and if you can't keep the car in axis the result is merciless... but if you study and learn the rules, that lens is a joy. I think this is a lens not for newtors, buy the 17-40 or the f4 and you will have more fun! But if you want a true backlight rose you can't ask for better, in fact you... going on its version 3 or on Zeiss. Used must buy.

Pros: L series, weather sealed, f 2.8

Cons: .....Nothing for now.

Opinion: Lens taken in lieu of the same focal length, but version f4 usm is ii.rnHo did an exchange with a member of the forum, he was looking for a wide angle and I is a bright wide angle .... rnrnPrime impressions: rnrnEsteticamente the optic has an imposing front lens (filter 82mm) making it firm and stable grip the lens giving you a sense of sicurezza.rnRifiniture L. Curated series and well finished, although the project is now the 2007.rnrnPer regarding the yield, both of 6d 80d that are currently satisfied. rnL'apertura f 2.8 makes file is good for night use as indoors or outdoors and does not feel the lack of stabilizer. rnGlobalmente I have not seen it with photos edges too mixed or unclear let alone bui.rnCerto to 16 mm c is a slight vignetting but not ecessiva, as a slight ghosting if you point directly to a light source, it is the sun or a artificiale.rnrnSoddisfatto light. rnrn rnrnrnrnrnrnrnrnrn

Pros: Focal range and aperture 2.8

Cons: Total yield, poor sharpness especially at the edges, not af precise.

Opinion: I think it is, in my opinion, among the worst Canon lenses. To be a wide optical flaw in many important aspects mainly on clarity and consistency of the same clarity on the frame. Perhaps retains a certain decency in photojournalism, but otherwise in my opinion not worth what it costs. I hope for a version III arranged for the type of optics is very interesting!

Pros: construction, manageability, speed AF, brightness

Cons: edges pasty wide openings, light flare and aberrations in extreme conditions, the price more than double the 17-40mm f4

Opinion: I am more and more for the practical tests on the ground that the empirical laboratory of focus chart that will not fully apply in realtà.rnrnLente obviously suitable for both outdoor and indoor scenic shots for its luminosity (churches, aisles, interior architectural structures etc. .). rnDa definitely his best on FF though on APS-C also find a more suitable area of ??applicazione.rnrnDistorsione important to 16mm but sometimes it can just be desired and sought and can make it more "exciting" shots. rnViceversa TA f2.8 edges are very mellow and of limited use for example in size prints generose.rnHo noticed in extreme conditions (see the sun inside the lens) a major flare and aberrations a little 'fastidiose.rnrnLo consider it a bit' brother of the more economical 17-40 f4 L which is slightly more flexible since giving up just one strand of wide-angle, earns less than 5 mm focal length lunga.rnNon very much agree with the policyCanon to provide a 16-35mm that would then assisted to a 24-70 or 24-105, so you would purchase a very expensive lens that is going to overlap for most of the standard zoom focal above (see Nikon also offers 12-14), for example the quality of the 24-70 2.8 L series II between 24 and 35mm is also superior to that of the 16-35mm.rnD'altronde the Canon 11-24mm is still unapproachable for standard budget! rnrnPuò be also suitable for tight portraits if you want a fun "creative distortion", or 30-35mm for portraits ambientati.rnResta to understand whether it is worth compared to 17-40, having used both on 5D MIII bearing very good high speed ISO, I have to say that this camera body today is not worth investing about 900 euro more for more light but this will be offset by the technical capabilities of macchina.rnDiscorso different on other versions of FF that would benefit much more of the steps of brightness that has compared to the 16-35mm17-40mm.rnC'è also to say that in comparing the two (because this is also practical) 17-40 is easily used to 400 euro, while the 16-35 to no less than 900, and then in the proportion gap in price between the two widens even più.rnrnIn substance, worth it? RNA my opinion depends on the type of photos you like best and make the kit you have. So if you are very fond of panoramic photos taken around 18-20mm and these are the majority of those we do then 16-35 is the right lens because the image quality is superior to these focal compared to 17-40. rnTuttavia if these are not primarily our photos and you also own the 24-70 series 2.8 L II then in my opinion you should have one lens over 1000 Euros for "only" 8 mm more grandangolo.rnCiao at all.

Pros: Clarity, versatility, contrast, color, construction, auto focus.

Cons: Edges apertures, distortion at short focal lengths.

Opinion: 16-35 This is a lens that I love, it has its flaws ... like some sharpness at the edges at the widest apertures and noticeable distortion with very short focal ... so definitely not a perfect lens, for those who love landscapes recommend the new f4 IS. On the other hand, however, also it has many strengths, excellent sharpness in the center and in the intermediate zones, focal very versatile, color rendering and contrast very good. The building is at the top, a tank ... and the auto focus is precise and immediate ... at last, a bright aperture. A goal born to reports and photojournalism sports and not, for these types is perfect without a doubt. I use it with satisfaction also during weddings and photographs style of architecture, interiors and landscapes, with a little 'of foresight and knowing the limits, you can take home excellent work in these fields, so I recommend it to big. When I needed to replace it, I was a bit 'undecided between this and the new f4 IS, I eventuallyI chose this again, mainly for the need of a diaphragm bright ... choice of which absolutely do not regret.
