Built for professionals or the serious amateur photographer, the Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8 L II USM Lens is likely one of the most important lenses you will own.

An ultra-wide angle, the Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8 L USM Lens, the 16-35 L II is a very high grade quality lens, which is constructed extremely solidly, measures 3.5“ x 4.4” and weighs in at about 1.4 lb.

Being a super size and weight for comfortable use and easy handling the quality makes it a good choice.

This large 82mm filter size is a first for Canon EF Lenses, not shareable on other Canon lenses without the addition of a stepping ring.

The larger end of the barrel adds an improved image quality with both the focus and zoom rings positioned well and sized nicely.

Fully sealed against dust and moisture, when a filter is in place, the Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8 L II USM does not change in size, with its inner barrel extending.

The lens is constructed of sixteen elements in twelve groups, with a close focus of less than a foot.

Previous questions about this product

  • Which Canon lens for these applications?

    I need help picking out a lens for my husband's anniversary gift. He is shooting high school sports photography (indoor & outdoor). Alot of the games are at night with poor lighting on the fields & basketball gyms are notoriously poorly lit. He has a Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi. The lens that came with it is messed up...so he borrows his sister's. He has mainly been using the EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM for the outdoor activities. He is now being asked to do outdoor portrait photography as well. OK, so he keeps saying he needs a wide angel lens with zoom and something that lets in more light. I am looking at the Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM Lens, but am not sure if this is right for his applications. What about the EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM or EF 17-40mm f/4L USM? Or something else completely? Any advise is appreciated!

    Answered by nilufer 2009-05-13:

    Yeah, it seems fine but i will suggest Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Camera Lens or Canon FD 35mm Wideangle
