Great wide angle on a full frame!

This was a lens I was missing from my bag. I found myself shooting large groups at a wedding in tight quarters and my 24-70 f2.8 was not wide enough. This lens is great at getting the whole picture in. I have used it for some closeup special effects but it is great for landscape and large group shots. The filter size is 82mm so your other filters will not fit, but other than that it is one of the top Canon lenses out there. Like everything else good, you pay for it.(I'm still paying...) Thi...

This was a lens I was missing from my bag. I found myself shooting large groups at a wedding in tight quarters and my 24-70 f2.8 was not wide enough. This lens is great at getting the whole picture in. I have used it for some closeup special effects but it is great for landscape and large group shots. The filter size is 82mm so your other filters will not fit, but other than that it is one of the top Canon lenses out there. Like everything else good, you pay for it.(I'm still paying...) This lens seems to be the sharpest of all the ones I own(24-70mm f2.8 takes second place and the 70-200mm f2.8 third). It's been through several hundred shots already.

Canon 16-35 mm L II E-

I purchased a refurbished 1D MK III from Adorama and was ecstatic. I purchased an "E-", a used 16-35 mm L II from Adorama, no hood, no bag, generic poor fitting front of lens cap (these items are included with a new purchase. I won't be buying used from Adorama again (refurbished or new only)

Love this lens

By

Suprisingly low distortion and chroma shifts for such a wide lens. Great for astro photography. It's a bit on the large size but that can be expected, fast af, profiles available with adobe and its quite sharp for something that is so wide.

Superb product for photo enthusiasts

By

This lens is fast and offers a wide range for landscape as well as indoor photography. With this lens, I now have 3 Canon lenses to cover full range of circumstances.

Best Wide Angle

By

I bought this lens for the Canon 5DM3 with the purpose of capturing wedding parties. This wide angle is great and you can capture a very wide patch even standing close to the target.

Worth It

By

I bought this for architectural photography and it has been absolutely worth it. I debated a less expensive off brand and am very glad I went with this. It's solidly built but not extremely heavy and very dependable.

Just Buy It.

I had the EF-S 10-22 with my T2i but had to sell it when I upgraded to a 6D. I didn't realize how much I missed having a wide angle lens until it was gone. I got this and took it to Boston for a weekend and put it through the paces. The lens is tack sharp and image quality through the aperture range is great. If you are considering the f/4 vs the f/2.8 do yourself a favor and spring for the f/2.8, you won't regret it. The low light capability is worth it. Great service by Adorama, I traded in some old equipment, pricing was fair and service was great.

Questions about this item:

Kevin B  I have the T3i.... I have ready every review, answer and other responses to these lenses... I can't come a decision yet.. Which one is the better option for landscape shots - the 10-22mm, 17-40mm, or 16-35mm? Thx in advance Kevin
DENNIS M  Kevin, I have a Canon 16-35 and can truly say it is an amazing lens and is my choice hands down of the lenses you mentioned, although a bit pricey. Looking at the other choices, you have the 17-40 which is similar in focal length, and the 10-22 which is more in the fisheye category. The 16-35 gives you a depth of field that is phenomenal which allows low angle landscape shots with practically everything in focus. It is also great when shooting architectural (indoor and outdoors) due to its wide angle as well as portraits. I have used it with both a 5D MKII and a 7D with excellent results even though you effectively have a 26-56mm lens when you use it on the 7D (Not a full frame sensor). You may want to check on the sensor size for the T3i. Another fine option would be the Canon EF 17-55. I own one of these also and it is a great lens. It is not an "L" lens, but it has rave reviews from just about everyone that has one, including me. It has a nice wide angle, but a little more reach on the high end. It is a real fine landscape, portrait and overall "Keep it on the camera" walkaround lens. Tack sharp focus. And it is a lot less expensive and not quite as heavy. Please give the 17-55 some serious consideration. You won't be sorry you did. With your camera and its sensor size, that would be the most bang for the buck in my opinion. Hope this helps. Denny Mangum Novice, but lovin' it!
Shopper  Looking to upgrade to a Canon 6D camera and was considering the Canon EF 16-35 f/2.8 II lens or the Canon EF 25-105 f/4 L. I want to take family and friends as well as landscape shots. Which lens would give me the best of both worlds?
JOHN T  The 16-35 mm on a full-frame sensor is ideal for landscape photography; it is also heavier. The 25-105mm has a longer range, lighter, more suitable for a wide variety of tasks & cheaper. From what you say it seems that the 25-105 mm would better address your goals
Shopper  Does this lens get longer at shorter focal lengths like the 24-70l does? or does it zoom normally?
randy b  The lens elements move but the barrel does not move. Randy
