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.

The only downfall to this lens is the simple fact that it warps the image at wide-open. Anything wider than 24 mm has some sort of distortion you can get away shooting around 20 to 24 mm with very little distortion however once you go wider than 20 mm the distortion is crucial.
Even while shooting on the Canon 5D Mark two, with the lens correction enabled there was still significant warp and stretching in the image at 16 mm. After some post corrections in Photoshop I was able to fix 50% of the warping and stretching. Whilst not completely corrected, you can still see that the lens had some sort of distortion.
I know many people are going to be fascinated with the fact that this is an L-series lens and that it's a 2.8 f-stop range. However the only difference between this lens and the Canon 24 - 70 mm lens is that this is slightly wider but you will lose on the long end.
I found myself shooting in the 20 to 24 mm range anyhow, so it would actually be more beneficial to just shoot on the Canon 24 - 70 mm lens which has very little bit any distortion whatsoever.
The only real reason to purchase this lens is to get that wide-open shot, just understand that the distortion is so great at wide-open that the images are almost completely unusable.
On an overall note, I would say pass up the thought of purchasing this lens it's way too expensive to have images so distorted and warped.
This lens just does not justify its price tag due to extreme distortion at wide-open, which is the only real reason to buy. So it comes up short by lacking in its only real feature. Kind of a paradox if you ask me.
I should not have been sold a lens like this.
It was pretty important to me that this lens have the wider f/2.8 vs. the 17-40mm f/4.0 aperture (which retails for about half the price). I will confirm with the professional and amateur reviews that this lens has distortion and vignetting in the corners at wide apertures (f/2.8) for 16mm to about 20mm. But actually, for me it gives those photos a bit of charm - see this lens's interesting perspective in my photo of my sister-in-law's cats. I've added a circular polarizing filter to this thing (albeit expensive given the monstrous 82mm lens width) and in the 20-30mm range, the quality and clarity is quite insane, my copy is razor sharp and makes for an awesome landscape lens particularly when using mirror lock-up and affixed to a tripod. This lens is way too short for a standard portrait lens and you'd be surprised how close you'd have to get to someone for them to take up a significant portion of their mug in the frame - your subject might object to your proximity. This might stand in however, as a specialized walk-about lens particularly if you're in a sprawling downtown neighborhood with looming skyscrapers or mountainous backdrops.
Build quality is superb. One small gripe is that we, consumers need to add some type of filter to the lens to finish its weather proofing. For this much cash, that should already be taken care of by Canon. But given I always protect my glass, a filter goes on anyway so I guess it's really not a a huge issue but I wanted to make sure everyone is in the know.
This is the best zoom ultra-wide angle lens out there for Canon. It's the best, but is available at a hefty ransom and only you can decide whether the price-performance ratio makes sense to you. It has a reasonably wide aperture (f/2.8) with a good range of focal length (16-35) - but just keep in mind about the distortion and pincushion effects at the wide and zoomed-in focal lengths respectively.
Otherwise, I really like this lens. When I say that it is a guilty pleasure, I always get great shots no matter what.
Best of Luck & Good Shooting!
