From the Manufacturer
Broaden your perspective with the Canon EF 16-35mm ultra-wide-angle zoom lens. Specifically designed for improved edge-to-edge image quality that meets the strict requirements of professional and high-end amateur photographers alike, the lens lets you bring more area into focus while providing greater depth of field. The lens features three high-precision aspherical lens elements--ground, replica, and GMo--that produce even better image quality than the original Canon EF 16-35mm USM lens. The circular aperture, meanwhile, produces a beautiful and natural background blur when shooting at wider apertures. Other details include internal focusing, a ring-type ultra-sonic monitor (USM), and new AF algorithms for fast and quiet autofocusing. The lens carries a one-year warranty.

This lens has been reviewed by many people and has been criticized as well as lauded for it's properties of build quality, brightness, sharpness, and the quality of color it transmits to the sensor (or film).
My concern about sharpness in the corners was based on some critical reviews. But like so many reviews of so many lenses over the years, they're not telling the whole story. Simply put, in practical application of this lens, it is incredibly sharp and produces incredible images. It's a very handy package, though the lens hood is challenging to get into a pocket when you just want to carry the lens in the pouch and walk around with little but a camera and a lens or two.
I have no regrets about purchasing this lens. It's everything I hoped it would be. I had considered buying the 17-40mm because of the savings and because of the same-size filter (77mm) to other lenses in the line. I imagine paying twice as much for this lens and then piling the filter on top of of that is going to put some people off. I am glad I waited and raised the money - the extra speed of the lens and extra angle of view at 16mm was well worth an extra week of selling film cameras and old lenses on that popular auction site...
If you're trying to decide to buy this lens, I will not give you any information that will discourage you - in terms of technical quality this lens is unbeatable. If you don't need the speed, or don't expect to use the lens much, the savings on the 17-40 might be worth it. For me, I'm guessing this lens is going to be on my camera a bunch!
I read a few reviews that stated this lens was a little soft at the edges. My lens is razor sharp edge to edge, and I have not yet noticed any softness in any situation. One more thing, some reviews also say you need slimline filters to prevent vignetting. The only time I had a problem with that was when I forgot to remove my UV filter and stacked a polarizer on top of it. Otherwise, normal thickness filters should not be a problem.
This lens may suffer edge softness and I had to have mine calibrated by Canon within the 1 year warranty period. From f/2.8-f/8, this lens is not sharp when compared to the lenses above. From f/8 and beyond it performs well.
Overall I'm pleased, but at this price, I would want a little better edge sharpness.
