You can find some pictures here - https://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthre​ad.php?t=411156

I don't think there's any common issues with this lens. There's a lot of people own it and love it.

I've got it. I think it's very underutilized on a crop body.

Do you need F2.8? If not, 17-40 maybe a better alternate from a cost benefit standpoint.
10-22 is a great lens, as are some non Canon lenses.

It is not the best choice for a crop. take a look at the 17-55is instead. you get IS, better range, excellent sharpness and cheaper lens. the 16-35 only has the advantage of being full frame... if you update in the very near future.

I agree, look for the 10-22 for your 40d. If you think you might go full frame in the future go with the 17-40.

I love my 16-35 II but agree with the advice here. It's an expensive option for a crop. If you like the focal range, the 17-55 or 17-50s are cheaper and will likely produce equal or better IQ. If you are looking for an ultrawide, the canon 10-22, tonkia 11-16, etc. are better alternatives.

So the question is:
Do you want an ultrawide (16-35 on full frame, 10-22 on crop) or a wide to normal (24-70 on ff, 17-55 on crop)?
It is not clear and you might get confusing replies.

Yeah, that's a lot of money to drop on a lens seeing action only on a crop body.

For the price of a new 16-35 f2.8 II you can get Sigma 10-20 + 24-70L
which is far more versatile on a crop body

My 16-35 stays on my crop-body when I anticipate indoor group shots. The 24-70 goes on for general walkaround stuff. No problems with either for me.

I love it and use it a lot both on &d and FF. Sold the 17-55 2.8 (which I loved) to fund it when I went FF.
