Our take on the Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM by Crutchfield's Tara W.
Versatile lens that's perfect for everyday photography
Canon designed this lens for premium performance with their EOS SLR cameras. It features a focal range that's ideal for capturing everyday and wide-angle shots. A large maximum aperture throughout the focal range means you'll get well-exposed photos, even when shooting in lower light with slower shutter speeds. Use this lens on your camera when you're hiking, and you'll be able to take group photos at dusk without using a flash, or snap pictures of a sweeping landscape from the top of a mountain.
Designed for great optical performance
Superior optics ensure you'll get crystal-clear, high-contrast images. Your photos will be clear and detailed across the entire field of view — from one edge to the other — thanks to three aspherical elements. A powerful ultrasonic motor (USM) provides silent, precise auto focusing.
Need a case for your camera's lens? Check out Tamrac's lens case compatibility chart to find a case that fits (requires Adobe® Reader®).
This a great professional lens. It's sharp and has great contrast. It's the perfect compliment to the Canon 24-70mm and 70-200 f2.8 lenses.

Features and Specs
|Parts Warranty||1 Year|
|Labor Warranty||1 Year|
Overview: The Canon EF16-35mm F2.8L II USM lens is a high-performance, water-resistant, and ultra-wide angle Canon L-series lens. The lens features an Ultrasonic Motor (USM). The lens features three high-precision aspherical lens elements, each of a different type: ground, replica, and GMo for even better image quality than the original EF 16-35mm f/2.8 L USM. The lens includes the LP1319 Lens Case and the EW-88 Lens Hood.
Ultrasonic Motor (USM): The EF 16-35mm lens is equipped with a ring-type Ultrasonic Motor (USM) for silent, high-speed auto focusing.
Focusing Ring: Regardless of whether you're in manual or auto focus mode, the focusing ring always works. This means you can auto focus on a subject, but manually change the focus by turning the focusing ring.
Focus Mode Switch: You can switch between Auto Focus and Manual Focus using the two-way switch on the barrel of the lens.
Zoom Ring: The lens has a rotary type zoom ring. The lens barrel indicates the zoom range between 16mm and 35mm, with marks at 20mm, 24mm, and 28mm.
Water/Dust Resistance: The lens mount has a rubber ring for enhanced water- and dust-resistance.
Lens Hood: The lens kit includes the EW-88 lens hood to keep unwanted light out of the lens, and protects the front of the lens. The hood can be reverse-mounted on the lens for storage. When installed, the hood adds approximately 1-3/16" to the overall length and 13/16" to the overall diameter of the lens.
Optional Filters: The EF 16-35mm lens has an 82mm mounting thread on the front of lens for attaching screw-on type filters.

Why did you buy this?
Needed a wide-angle lens to cover the lower end of the focal length spectrum. I already have the 24-70 and 70-200 L lenses. Additionally this is f/2.8. [ Vivekanandhan Feb 13, 2016 ]
