Description: Developed to succeed the high-performance 17-35mm f/2.8L USM, the EF 16-35mmf/2.8L USM has the leading wide-angle range in its class. Due to the proliferation of digital SLR Camera's that tend to have a smaller frame size when compared to the 35mm,there is a demand for shorter focal length lenses, and this has resulted in the development of the EF 16-35mmf/2.8L USM. This is the first EF lens to have three types of aspherical elements (ground, replicated and Gmo [glass molded] which effectively correct the lens aberrations which occur during zooming. And despite its longer zoom range the EF16-35mm f/2.8L USM obtains a higher image quality than any other lens in its class.


* Three types of aspherical elements
* Highly resistant to dust and water droplets
* Inner focusing and ring USM for silent and high-speed AF operation
* Drop-in, gelatin filter holder provided at the rear
* Circular diaphragm for better background blur.

Pros: Quality piece of glass and well built
Cons: Non so far

I debated long and hard about this lens...........reading around the web it seemed there were/are some bad copies around.

I was a previous owner of a 17-40L and wasn't 100% happy with it.

So after speaking to owners of this lens I decided to go for it.

Colour, contrast, sharpness seem fine to me and the lens is on my camera most of the time.

One thing I did was to change the hood from the one provided and use the EW-83H.
