I have one. It's a sweet lens. 16mm on a crop body is fairly wide (FoV 25.6mm equiv). Until I picked up this lens, the widest I had was a 28mm (FoV 44.8mm equiv) so it was quite a welcome change. IQ is very good.

Would you consider this a good lens for walking around at night?

Can't say enough good things about this lens. Most people who need WA won't fork up the cash for it when there's a much cheaper 17-40L, EF-S 10-22 for crop bodies and other third party alternatives available. Most people simply don't need a fast WA zoom. Probably the main reason for the lack of reviews. You'll see this lens used by a lot of professionals and it gets the job done. Those that purchased this lens and expect it to make pancakes for them in the morning are usually the ones posting negative reviews about it. All the negative things people whine about are usually things that are inherent in the design of the lens. I, for one, am not disappointed. It has performed well for me in less than adequate lighting conditions indoors, the primary reason I swapped my 17-40L for the 16-35L in the first place. It's performs like a mid-range zoom on a crop body and is very versatile in the right hands. Not to mention it's great for landscapes and scenery. BTW, I recently posted some scenic shots taken with the 16-35L mounted on my 5D. You should be able to find the link easily if you use the search function. For night shots, I typical resort to my faster primes like my 35L. Keep in mind that every piece of equipment has its pros and cons. Understanding and accepting the capabilities and limitations of your equipment before hand can save you misery later. ;)

I would think you dont hear much about it because of it's little brother.

The 17-40 f/4 is a great lens that MANY people own, they own it for a reason (i love mine). The 16-35 is at least as sharp and a full stop faster.

I think, eventually, i will replace my 17-40 with my 16-35, but at this point in my photography, at 16/17mm, the extra stop of light is just not all that much of a deal to me and i simply cant justify the (nearly) double cost.

Keep in mind, in most situations, there is a much bigger difference between say a 300mm f/4 and a 300mm f/2.8 then a 16mm f/2.8 and a 17mm f/4 simply because you need much higher shutter speeds for pictures used with these lenses then the wide angles.

Alas, and i'll end with this, photography is all about capturing the light...anyone who doesnt want to be able to capture more is a fool :)

Does working near Cheyenne Mountain qualify? ;) Okay, Dante. No more hair jokes. Hard to make jokes about something you don't have anyway.
