Canon EF 16-35mm f/4 L IS USM

Review Date: Jul 31, 2014 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,250.00 | Rating: 10 

Pros: Very well built; extremely sharp; great weight; good focal range; very useful image stabilization; 77mm filter size

I just came off a two week trip to northern Europe and this lens performed better than anticipated. Even though I brought my 24-105, the new 16-35 f/4L IS never came off my 6D. I traded in my 17-40 and will never regret the extra cost.

- flare was extremely well controlled
- the IS was very beneficial in 'low light' indoor situations
- CA is well controlled
- the lens is sharp in all focal lengths, from corner to corner [35mm was suggested as it weakest point, but I fail to see it]
- there is a noticeable improvement in distortion, over the 17-40 model

Feel free to view my "real world" shots at my Flickr site. All photos with this lens are clearly marked below the photo.....


I highly suspect this will be my walk around lens from this point forward.
