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

Review Date: Apr 5, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

Pros: Great image quality, fast focus, low CA, great improvement over the previous version
A little soft at the extreme corners for pixel-peepers, 82mm filters, expensive

Center is sharp at 2.8 across the zoom range. Corners are slightly soft below f8 but acceptable. Seems to be more flare resistant than previous model - maybe because front element "retracts" as zoomed from 16 to 35? A little heavier and larger the earlier version but hardly noticable. Overall, I'm happy with the improvements.
