Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM

16-35II
Review Date: Feb 1, 2009 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,600.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Sharp! Very very sharp! No vignette.
Cons:
None.

After owning the 16-35 Mark I I can easily say this is leaps and bounds better. Not sure how others are getting vignette but on the 5D and 5d Mark II and 1Ds Mark III there is no vignette, the pics are sharp edge to edge, Im really really satisfied. I was really hesitent after reading others reviews to order this but Im glad I did.

Pros: EVERYTHING! Image Quality, Battery Life, Durability, Full frame!
Cons:
None.

Ive owned this camera for a year and a half now and its simply amazing. The image quality is fantastic, the noise is extremely low, and if you get this you MUST use L lenses. Otherwise you are severely hampering your picture quality.

Ive seen alot of reviews saying "this is a dust magnet blah blah" im sorry. Its all in the photographer and how he/she changes lenses. It was not till just recently I got my first piece of dust on the sensor that I was able to notice and I change lenses constantly and shoot constantly. (Same with every other camera I own, its rare if I get dust and I shoot in a desert!) So if you see "Camera attracts dust" sorry, not true. (Turn your camera off, hold it face down, change your lens while holding it face down, power back on.)

The battery life is amazing. I have a battery grip and Ive shot 12 hours straight and still had battery life. How much battery life? Not sure it never ran out on me.

The LCD screen is nice and large which is helpful for reviewing pictures. The LCD is a little off as alot of times I think I over exposed a pic by 1/3 stop or so only to get it on my computer and see that its fine. (Not a big gripe because small LCD screens are like that in any item you own, just be careful not to delete your pics till you see them on your computer first.

All I gotta say is I love this camera, and I cant wait to see what the next generation brings. PErfect camera for any type of invent.
