Reviews of Canon EF 16-35mm f2.8 II L USM Lens*
Great all around wide angle lens I bought this lens for my daughter who is in college taking photo journalism, she loves this lens. Great wide angle selections work well in her work. I find myself want to steal hers now, Just another Great L lens! Love the f2.8 Good lens for just about any close quarter situation. (Jan 2015)
Just Fantastic I have had this lens for about 2 years. I love what this thing can do for my landscape shots. Just crazy. At 35mm, it does people very well. At 16mm, it can take something somewhat ordinary, and make it look extraordinary! I just can’t recommend it enough. Of my top 20 shots, this lens is responsible for about 16 of them and is one of my cheapest lenses. Just get it! (Dec 2014)
Quality Images I use this lens on a full frame camera and really like the wide angle images. Image quality is superb. I have been using this for shooting stars and star trails and have been really happy. A prime lens with a larger aperture might be more beneficial for astro photography, but using this for landscapes and other purposed I have been completely satisfied.
