Wide-angle zoom designed for FX-format sensors, this 16-35mm lens can also be used with DX models where it provides a 24-52.5mm equivalent focal length range.
Constant f/4 maximum aperture offers consistent performance and light transmission throughout the zoom range.
Three aspherical elements are used to reduce spherical aberrations and distortion in order to realize sharp imagery with accurate rendering.
Two extra-low dispersion elements greatly reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations in order to produce greater clarity and color accuracy.
A Nano Crystal Coat has been applied to individual elements to suppress internal reflections, flare, and ghosting for improved contrast and color accuracy when working in strong lighting conditions.
Silent Wave Motor affords quick, quiet, and precise autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus override. An internal focusing design is also used, where only the internal lens groups are moved during focusing, to maintain the overall length of the lens during use and to promote faster focusing speeds.
VR II (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake by 2.5 stops to benefit shooting handheld in difficult lighting conditions.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm promotes a pleasing out of focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field techniques.

Recently bought and starting to use. So far I'm in love.

Good lens with a minor caveat for film shooters.

I use with with an F6 35mm camera. I have found this lens to be quite sharp from corner to corner. Good ultra wide zoom range. No vignetting, at least with only one filter attached. I didn't test it with two. Distortion at 16mm is nasty, so compose to avoid straight lines that run parallel along the edge of the frame if you want to avoid it being obvious. Distortion at all other focal lengths is much less of a problem. Of course, digital cameras can correct this distortion, but not film cameras. Be aware that this is a big heavy lens for a wide angle. You might want to check your camera case dimensions to make sure it will accommodate it. I can't get my F6 into my Ape ACPRO 1200 case with this lens attached, which means I have to switch back to my 24-120mm when I put the camera away. A pretty trivial inconvenience, though.

I haven't had a chance to use this extensively in the field yet, but in playing around with it in my house and my yard, I am favorably impressed. Lightweight, yet solid. Zoom is internal. Controls are simple. Compact size. Nice images with no distortion that I could detect. I'm pretty happy with it so far. I can't wait to take it out and really use it.

I love this lens. It's versatile and sharp. The VR works great when you have to hand hold for long exposures. The lens shade can be a pain to attach but otherwise pretty flawless lens.

I've been using the 24-70mm 2.8 for a while now and wanted something a little wider for landscape and street photography. The 16-35 duplicates some of the 24-70 range but I just did not want to deal with the 14-24 monster. This 16-35 makes an excellent walk-around lens and I can always carry something longer if I want.
