Excerpt: This is an excellent lens, which in my opinion is very capable of producing professional quality results. Some may consider this lens to be on the heavy side, but I prefer the solid construction feel. The biggest thing to consider when purchasing this lens is the speed. As a landscape photographer, the maximum aperture of f/4 is not a problem for my kind of work. If you plan to shoot wildlife, I would not recommend this lens.
Excerpt: Excellent lens for Architecture and landscape photos. Fast, constant aperture wide angle lens. It is rare to find a lens of this focal length with VR. This is a very sharp and contrasty lens. It should be, at this price. Although a tripod is always best, you can hand hold this lens with excellent results. The build quality is what you would expect at this price.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I struggled for a long time choosing between the 16-35mm and the 14-24mm. Ultimately, I chose the 16-35mm because of (1) price, and (2) the ability to use filters. I am very satisfied with my choice. The 16-35mm produces very sharp photos, especially when stepped down (as many others have said). While the lens is heavy, I do not think it's uncomfortably heavy. And I have not yet missed the 2mm gained with the 14-24. Versatility and price ultimately won me over here.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus
Excerpt: I do mostly landscape and architectural photography. this lens has proven to be great at both. I just returned from a week on Cape Cod. Shot some beach sunrises into the sun and was totally blown away by the performance of this lens. Absolutely no flare where other lenses would have had at least some flare. I haven't seen performance like this since my old H-blad lenses. Spent a couple days at the Grand Canyon in some really bad conditions and was again very impressed.
Excerpt: If you are reading this review, you are probably debating which of these two would be best for you. Like you, I think I have looked at every review and piece of information available for these two excellent lenses. In the end, the 16-35 made the most sense to me, although for a somewhat specialized reason.
Excerpt: This is my 1st ultra wide lens, and it has opened up so many new shot ideas that cannot be done with a normal or wide angle...I find myself using the 16mm more than anything as I explore how I can use the lens.
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus
