I'll preface this by saying that its rare for me to think that a product is worthy of a 5-star rating, as there's almost always room for improvement. However, the 16-35 f4 IS is an exceptional case in which a product absolutely excels in everything its designed to do, and does so at a reasonable price (relative to Canon's more recent offerings anyway). Amazon only recently released this lens, however, I've been shooting with it for a week now and am thoroughly impressed with the lens.

With the release of the extremely well received 70-200 2.8II, 70-200 F4 IS, 24-70 2.8II, and 24-70 F4 IS, Canon really is the king of the zoom lens....and the 16-35 F4 IS a worthy addition to Canon's portfolio of class-leading zoom lenses. In my particular case, the 16-35 F4 IS shares a bag with the 70-200 2.8II and 24-70 2.8II, and optically, it's literally an extension of the two longer lenses. I previously owned the 16-35 2.8II and the 17-40 F4, and using both of those lenses always felt like a compromise in terms of image quality. This is not the case with the 16-35 F4 IS.

Images out of the lens are extremely sharp across the frame wide open at F4, improving even further as you stop the lens down. What impresses me most isn't the sharpness, however, it's the micro contrast (ability to smoothly render the subtle tonal shifts in a scene). This is particularly important for an ultra-wide angle lens, which pulls a lot of a scene into the frame, and as such, pulls a lot of detail and a lot different light sources into the frame. The 16-35 F4 IS excels at rendering the minute transitions in the tonal boundaries in the scene, bringing out details in a scene in such a way that raw resolution alone cannot do.

After owning the 16-35mm f/2.8 for 5 years and shoots a LOT of landscape and real estate images, I was intrigued by the great reputation this new f/4 lens was getting. I finally pulled teh trigger, sold the 16-35/2.8 and bought this, and the rumors are all true: the image quality on this lens is Canon's best-in-class for wide angle zooms to date. The light resolution and sharper corners are noticeably better (I shoot a 5D3) and I am totally thrilled with the decision to go with this lens. The IS works amazingly when shooting candid people shots at 35mm at weddings, etc. At first I was concerned about losing f2.8 simply because I love fast lenses and thought I'd never own anything slower than 2.8, but in reality that doesn't matter with such a wide lens on a full frame. F2.8 at 19mm does NOT give you a creamy out-of-focus background, half the room is actually still in focus, lol! Plus, that's what the 50mm/1.2 is for if I need blurred backgrounds. My other concern was that I would be losing a whole stop of light shooting Milky Way images (I've done a bunch living in Arizona with nice dark deserts), but then I realized that was fin 3-4 years ago and now there are so many amazing MW shots on 500px, what's the point? So back to reality and what it is I shoot, and that is landscapes at f/11-f/14, and real estate at the same aperture, and since I can get the best quality to date from Canon in the super wide zoom category, I pulled the trigger and couldn't be happier. If it's image quality you're after, this is it. I've also bought the version 2 of the 24-70mm and the version 2 of the 70-200mm/2.8 IS and those two were leaps and bounds better in image quality than the version 1 copies, and this 16-35mm falls in that same category: huge leap upward for sharp corners, great resolution, awesome images. I've posted a 6-exposure sunrise I just took on new year's day morning with this lens. Go git it!

I have owned and used the 16-35mm f/2.8L II lens for several years now. While it is a fantastic lens, I was never thrilled with its performance in the corners for landscapes, which for me was the primary reason for owning the lens. I switched to using the TS-E 17mm f/4L for landscapes and my 16-35mm f/2.8 usually just stayed in my bag - in fact I didn't even bring it along on my last photo trip. Now with the release of this new 16-35mm f/4L IS, my camera bag will always contain an ultra-wide angle zoom lens. I plan on making it my go-to landscape lens, and probably will only use the TS-E 17mm lens when I actually need the tilt or shift. This lens plus a 70-200mm f/4L IS will likely be the only two zoom lenses I carry for photo trips.

The image quality is nearly prime like - I see little to no difference in the corners between this lens and the TS-E 17mm (without tilt or shift), even wide-open at f/4. Image quality in the center is fantastic, but the center was never a problem with any of Canon's ultra-wide zoom lens. Corner quality in their other ultra-wide zoom lenses have always disappointed, but this lens reverses that trend, delivering excellent image quality across the frame. Photos are sharp and contrasty, in the center and in the corners. If you are familiar with Canon's other recently released zoom lenses, such as the 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II or 24-70mm f/2.8L II, you can expect similar results from this lens - fantastic.
