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 upgraded version is better in following ways:
1) SHARPER - Not just in center but all around. I am noticing crisp details in my pictures that I didn't notice before. I have been chasing sharpness all my life and this lens has gotten me closest to my goal.
2) REDUCED SOFT CORNERS - From what I understand the main reason Canon upgraded this lens was to get rid of soft corners and they have succeeded considerably in reducing the problem if not completely eliminating it. If you can avoid made wide-angle of 16mm, you barely notice anything ever.
3) BETTER AT HANDLING POINTED LIGHT SOURCE - My version one, everytime I pointed at light source it would fill up the whole picture with all kind of octagons. This lens doesn't eliminate them completely, but reduces them significantly and whatever is left actually serves the purpose of making it artsy.
4) WORK-HORSE - For outdoors it meets most needs (can't shoot wildlife with it for obvious reasons). Fast and silent focus! Did I mention SHARP pictures.
Definitely worth the price and most certainly justifies upgrading from version-1.
Sharpness wise, it is a compromise most definitely, but it is worth this compromise for the extremely useful zoom range of this lens.
Recommended, unless you need edge-to-edge sharpness - where I'd recommend a TS-E lens instead.
Distortion is easily fixed with Lightroom Distortion Correction or Lens Correction since version 3. If you're going to spend this kind of money on a lens you should at least get Lightroom. If you've never used Lightroom and you take lots of pictures, you will thank me if you buy it on my say so. But you don't have to because almost everyone else that can afford it and knows about it uses it. If you want to get the best precision fix for distortion then get DxO Optics Pro. Get the Elite version if you have or even ever plan to move up to a full frame camera. You can download and use FULL functionality for 30 days before deciding to buy it. It can do everything that Lightroom does but I still find myself going to Lightroom after fixing distortion and generating a TIF file from DxO. Crazy, I know.
If you don't like the occasional blue streak in the sky created with polarizers, don't bother buying a polarizer for this lens because YOU WILL get that streak because it covers so much sky. That said, I went ahead and bought one anyway since I lost a lot of very expensive filters on our last trip to Pismo. I can use a 82 to 77mm step down ring and I'll never have to worry about vignetting with my other lenses. Sometimes that blue streak does look pretty cool. On the other hand quality 82mm filters are a lot more expensive.
According to some respected reviewers, this is the best ultrawide zoom for Canon at this time. I like it a lot too but I can't compare since this is the only full frame ultrawide zoom that I own. According to some, there is also a big difference between being able to go 17mm to 16mm.
It is hard to understand how to use it at first. You do have to get up close and personal with your subject. You do have to pay attention to what's in the frame and you really want to make sure that the main subject of the picture is not lost in the vast space created by the lens. But like almost for all problems associated with being a photographer, the solution is to go out there and shoot, shoot, shoot.
