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

16-35II
Review Date: Aug 15, 2010 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: - The best zoom wide-angle lens in the Canon line up - Sharp in the middle - F2.8 is the icing on the cake - It's not as heavy as I had expected - Build like a tank - Weather proof
Cons:
- Filter thread size - A little bit on the expensive side - A little distorted on the edges

I have used this for both photography and for video and it is awesome for videos. The large aperture wide angle view on a video is really something to praise for, because it is especially good during low light video filming.

Price is on the dear side but it is worth every single cent of it. Trust me, this is a tough lens and it can withstand most conditions you throw at it.

My only complain is the larger than usual filter thread size of 82mm. Other than that, this is highly recommended.
