  • Conclusion: The Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM covers an impressive wide-angle field of view at an f/2.8 aperture, a feat for a prime lens, and delivers the added convenience of a 2x zoom design.
  • Pros: Ultra-wide field of view. Fixed f/2.8 aperture. Sharp throughout the zoom range.
  • Cons: Some distortion. Soft edges at f/2.8. Limited zoom range.

Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8 USM L II (full format) - Review / Test Report

5 May 2010
  • Conclusion: The Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8 USM L II may not be the greatest lens around in absolute terms but it delivers regarding its primary purpose - a very good performance at its ultra-wide to wide settings (16-26mm) from about f/4 onwards. This isn't all that simple as we've seen during the test of the EF 17-40mm f/4 USM L. On the downside the lens is rather mediocre at 35mm although still perfectly fine at medium apertures.

  • Excerpt: This super-fast wide-angle zoom could be a real boon for landscapers looking for pin-sharp results in low light. At £1158 it’s not cheap – but if you’re serious about your photography, this lens will not disappoint. With its maximum aperture of f/2.8 throughout the zoom range, the viewfinder remains bright and easy to use. The lens is quick and quiet in operation thanks to its built-in ultrasonic motor (USM).

  • Summary: The Canon 16-35 mm II has a fast autofocus and the finish is of a high level. Optical wise, there is something to be desired, especially in the 16 mm position. The sharpness in corners is pretty low, the vignetting is clearly visible and the distortion is high. At 24 mm the resolution becomes higher. In addition, the vignetting and distortion become much lower.
