Review Date: Oct 26, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: f2.8, very sharp wide open at all focal lengths, I think I got a GEM. Build quality.
Cons:
none

I was a bit apprehensive in ordering this lens after I read alot of negative reviews, but I took the plunge, canon has just built me a GEM. I was surpised how sharp it was wide open for a zoom lens, I don't need to apply any usm as I do with my canon 24-70mm f2.8, I compared it to my Tokina 17mm AT-X PRO which is sharp but the 16-35mm is sharper. I'm glad I don't have any negative things to say about this lens, except for I should have bought it years ago. This lens is a keeper.
