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

16-35II
Review Date: Mar 7, 2013 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Fast, accurate, well built.
Cons:
Expensive, very large filter size, a bit heavy but is expected on a lens like this.

I got this lens about a year ago and can't stop using it! I do love the zoom range of this lens especially when used on a FF camera. I find this lens attached to my 5D most of the time and love the fact that it can even be used as a macro lens, well, not so, but the minimum focusing distance is quite good for a wide angle. This lens is built like a tank and is fully weather sealed when used with a filter. Which by the way is an expensive filter, I went and bought my self a Canon polarizing filter and I am not impressed with the results, I would have prefered to buy a German make but it was more than $100 over the Canon filter.

Over all an excelent lens.

Pros: Sharp, light, well built.
Cons:
No IS.

I red a lot of reviews before deciding on this lens. I did not wanted to spend a lot on the IS L version of this lens so I went for the cheaper one.

I guess I did the right choise since this lens offers a good compromise between image quality and price. I would like to add that this lens is also used as a portrait lens and really love to hear people saying ''wow'' when they see the sharpness and clarity this lens can provide.
