Pros: Corner Sharpness @2.8 over the original 16-35
Cons: Filter size

I spent a while agonising as to if to upgrade from the original 16-35 2.8L but in the end I did and have no regrets.

I was fairly happy with the original but there has always been a question about corner sharpness @2.8 which I often shoot at.

So when the MKII was announced reporting much better corner sharpness my interest was stirred and after a lot of I made the purchase

A test can be seen here;

As can be seen there is less distortion and better corner sharpness with my examples.

The only negative is the 82mm filter size of which I also had to purchase another Lee filter holder as well as a new 82mm UV.

This lens is prob my most used lens and is quickly starting to become my fav........the first lens that I feel is close to a max score of 10 but not quite

Pros: Nice wide angle zoom with good IQ on a 1D Mark III
Cons: None

I can't find anything wrong with this piece of glass. It's gone through a group of shots now on both the 20D and 1D Mark III. It just works the way I thought it would. On the 20D I used the Canon 10-22mm for a long time and loved it. This is just as good IQ wise and built like those brick walls people love to shoot.
