Pros: Very sharp at all apertures and focal lenhgt
Cons:
You have to be very careful with front lens element

Several month ago I'm switched from Canon to Nikon. I was shocked, when I first time tried this lens. It is huge difference between Canon 16-35 f2,8II and Nikon 14-24 f2,8 lenses.No doubt, it is the best UWA zoom lens in the world!!!!!

Review Date: Nov 24, 2009 Recommend? no | Price paid: $1,400.00 | Rating: 2 

 
Pros: Image quality (if you can focus) pleasant bokeh, fast aperture
Cons:
Focus shift phenomenon, CA, overpriced

Stay away from this lens. More than two years, people reporting about focusing problems of this lens, and Canon do nothing to solve this "Focus shift" phenomenon, and still selling this lens for crazy price.

I'm was satisfied of the results, only when using live view manual focusing with designated aperture, but it is stupid to pay these money, for AF lens which you can not use auto focus.
