EF 16-35mm f/4L IS USM is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome value for money This is my first ultra-wide angle lens on a FF system & it definitely has not disappointed. It is amazingly sharp from corner to corner, the limited barrel distortion which is inherent to ultra-wide angle lenses is barely noticeable and easily corrected in post. The image stabiliser works like a charm. I have managed to take consistently sharp images under 1/4 sec, even at 0.6s! Overall I’m very happy with the purchase and looking forward to shooting subjects that I was previously unable to capture without stitching individual frames into a panorama.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light, stable & sharp It is hard not to be happy with this lens, between its IS & durable yet lightweight build, it is the best wide angle for action sports, landscapes and general purpose shooting. With it being F/4, I've never found it to be a limiting factor and couldn't be more happy with its edge to edge sharpness. For landscapes and even lower light conditions, I have all my trust that this lens is going to do exactly what I expect it too. 5/5 stars.
