Excerpt: I owned an older Canon 17-35F2.8L lens but I kept wishing I had this update. Then my old lens had a serious accident and I got the new 16-35. No regrets - the lens is awesome. I use it for weddings and for starry night landscapes and time lapse.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I am a landscape photographer mostly. With the Canon 16-5mm lens you are able to use this lens to the fullest. I like to have both foreground interest and lots of depth of field with my landscape photographers. With this lens I can achieve both goals of foreground and depth of field.
Excerpt: I seriously debated between this lens and the 24-70mm 2.8, but felt this lens would replace my 15mm and 20-35mm lenses, which I used a lot. This lens improves my results by leaps and bounds. At 16mm, this lens doesn't have the blurred edges that the 15mm caused, I can use a circular polarizer and neutral density filter, and I have a real lens cap with this lens (hated the 15mm lens cap so much!!).
Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged
Excerpt: I've shot landscapes for close to 50 years, and when I made the (reluctant) move from film to digital four years ago, I bought the 10-22mm S lens for my 50D, and was instantly and consistently satisfied with the results.But, as with anything digital, 'settling for' are the words. And the second word is 'editing', as we try to make a still-increasing value achieve the like qualities of the still-decreasingly available film stocks.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction, Superb Results
Excerpt: I prefer this lens over the Canon EF 14mm f/2.8L II USM Lens for the purpose of shooting real estate interiors. I shoot primarily new home construction with this lens. I use the Canon EOS 1D X (full-frame) body. Prior to purchasing this lens, I used the 14mm. The 14mm is still useful, but I like the results I get with the 16-35mm. It appears that I am spending less time in post production correcting distortions and verticals.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Love how much more this lens captures in the frame. You can really get the whole scene while shooting landscapes. If you already have a standard zoom lens, don't hesitate to spend the extra money. It's well worth it, because the ultra wide angle gets in so much more. Really love this lens and I'm super happy I bought it.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Lightweight, Rugged, Strong Construction
