Canon EF 16-35mm Reviews

WCastleman reviews Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8 USM L and writes:
“Image centers are sharp at f/2.8.
Image corners and edges are very soft at f/2.8 and progressively sharpen to peak sharpness at f/11. Image quality in the corners is very good by f/5.6. Corner image sharpness drops off slightly at f/16.”

Photozone reviews Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8 USM L and writes:
“The Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8 USM L was able to produce a very good performance in most aspects. The center resolution of the lens is exceptionally high regardless of the zoom and aperture settings. The border performance is lower specifically towards the extreme ends of the zoom range and at large aperture settings…. The build quality of the lens is great and it is a joy to use.”

The Luminous Landscape compares the Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8 USM L to Canon 17-35mm f/2.8L and writes:
“If you are in the market for a new wide-angle lens, I definitely recommend spending the extra $250 and getting the new 16-35L. In terms of sharpness, contrast, and extra features, you will get your monies worth…Overall, this is one of the sharpest super wide-angle zoom lenses that I have ever tested. I recommend it!”

The Digital Picture reviews Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8 USM L and writes:
“The 16-35 is about as good as it gets for wide angle photography. Many people could settle for a prime lens for their wide angle needs. Since they are easier to design, prime lenses are often faster, sharper and less expensive – Many people are willing to sacrifice the zoom functionality for these other features. “
