Hi, I managed to save up and invested in getting a 16-35 2.8L

It works well with my 40D and the wide angle is a pleasure. No more stepping back to make room to fit more into the view. It also looks fin sharp.

My advice - buy one :-)

It's one of my favorites lens on the 5D2... very fun lens to use.

Congrats, now step on over to a FullFrame body with that lens, then comeback and tell us what you think? Hahahaha that will be the WOW factor. Even my 17-40 on my 5D II is stupid wide, sometime too wide. Good luck with your new toy.

Hi

@Booja: the 17-55 2.8 is a EF-S lens if I don't have this wrong and I am looking at a FF body like the 5D in the future. I normally buy lenses for the long run.

I am still amazed by the 16-35L: My son was eating an ice cream and I took a snapshot. This one is a cropped part of the bigger pic. One thing for sure - there is no problem with sharpness and depth of field is easily controlled in relation to the focus point. In other words, it is not a challenge to get everything in focus or just parts of the image.

it is a good lens, I love it on my 5D. It is optically better than my 24-70L & 24-105L. It is also very flare resistant considered how wide it is. When stop down, it produces a very nice star pattern for pointed light source

Congrats on the lens, it's hands down my favorite lens. Actually it's my favorite UWA/zoom (primes are another story).

Super happy with mine. It is a lightweight carry that proves capable in whatever kind of wide photography, in whatever light condition and in a wide range assortment. Here’s a couple handheld at 19 and 16mm respectively.
