I saw tons of reviews and did my research on this one. As a hobbyist I was having a hard time justifying the cost, but I'm glad I made the purchase. The quality of images I brought back from my latest trip to Yellowstone and the Tetons was something I've never been able to achieve before.

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)

Outstanding Lens!


from Nashville

I'm a hobbyist. My go-to camera has been a Nikon D-7000 with an AF-S DX Nikkor 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR II...a good one-lens solution for traveling. Recently, however, received a full-frame Canon 6D with an EF 24-105 f4L IS USM lens as a retirement gift. I used it exclusively on a trip to Japan and was very impressed with the performance of both the camera and lens. More than anything, however, the wider view with the 6D's full-frame sensor vs. the D7000's crop sensor was an eye-opener. I stared researching articles on wide angle photography and after seeing examples of photos taken with 16mm and wider lenses, I wanted one but it had to have image stabilization. Fortunately, Canon came out with the EF 16-35 f4L with Image Stabilization and the reviews were glowing. I ordered one from Adorama and it came with a clear filter, lens cap tether, lens cleaning kit and lens wrap for the same price as the lens by itself. It arrived just in time for our Alaskan cruise. We arrived a couple days early to enjoy the city of Vancouver and I took the opportunity to take photos around Canada Place and the Convention Center using the 16-35 exclusively. At the Olympic Torches, instead of zooming I set the lens to 16mm and looked through the viewfinder and walked toward the torches until it filled the frame. I looked down I was literally three feet from the edge of the pool! I took photos of the torches from different angles and they turned out great. I went back later at night and recreated the angles and they turned out great too. During the cruise, I used the 16-35mm 90% of the time to capture the close quarters of the ship and the many magnificent Alaskan vistas. At 35mm, it took great-looking stitched panoramas. A very high percentage of my photos came out sharp as tacks which thrilled me to no end. The EF 16-35 f4L IS USM is an amazing lens and it suits my needs and expectations perfectly.

Perfect Landscape and Architecture Lense


from Denver

I've just had this lense for about 3 weeks and haven't gotten to use it to it's full potential but so far I m loving it. Bonus, it doesn't feel that heavy to me and I'm 5'2". It takes very sharp pictures and focuses quickly. You can also get very close to objects (~12") which is very nice. No cons here!


Superb product for photo enthusiasts


from Vienna, VA  -  Photo Enthusiast

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


from Saint Joseph, MI  -  Semi-pro Photographer

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.

Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM


from Miami  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I just received this product and its built for work. Getting used to it for now. Shooting landscape, experimenting with close-ups. This thing is well worth the money spent.


great lens


from NYC  -  Pro Photographer

I left off one star only because it is not an IS lens, tho the next generation will be. Great lens, bright, sharp and responsive.

Worth It


from Cincinnati, Oh  -  Pro Photographer

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.


from Bangor, ME  -  Photo Enthusiast

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 & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
CAROL L  The perfect match for my Canon 5D Mark lll.
Shopper  What is the weight of the 16-35mm f2.8 II? Can't find it in the specs.
THOMAS G  weight? Why does it matter as it is very light. If you are really that concerned maybe a mirror-less would be better for you. Sorry I cannot help any more
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?
Jux L  It depends how wide you want your shots to be, regardless of subject. Rent. Try. Decide. Whatever you do, ignore Michael Paul J's answer. The 6D & the 5Diii have the same, full frame, sensor. 16-35 on a 6D is the equivalent of 16-35 on a 35mm camera.
