  • Beautiful Ultra-Wide Zoom Lens
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Sparhawk - April 20, 2019

    I bought this lens as a replacement for a Canon 10-22mm f3.5/4.5 EF-S ultra wide zoom lens that I had faithfully used with an old Canon EOS 60D. The moment I upgraded to a Canon EOS 5D Mark IV dSLR body meant that I had no choice but to upgrade the lens as well as an EF-S lens is not compatible with the full-frame EOS 5D dSLR. What I've found is that this EF 16-35mm f/4L lens is worth every dollar for it. Pictures are crisp, and the ultra wide angle that it supports allows for me to capture landscape photography, which is the main reason why I use ultra-wide zoom lens. As a hobby photographer, this 16-35mm f/4L lens meets all my needs for an ultra-wide zoom lens for still landscape photography, and having its imager stabilizer feature, and an extra $1k in my wallet, is a worthy tradeoff than to go with its 16-35mm f/2.8L sibling. Highly recommended for any photographer, both amateur and professional, to add to his or her collection of lenses for landscape use.

  • Amazing quality, nice "macro" feature
    Verified BuyerReviewed by EricN - May 28, 2015

    OK, it's not true macro but it has a very short focus distance. This allows for macro like photography with a wide angle lens. At f4 the lens have nice bokeh still. Colors are great, very sharp across the zoom range, and build quality is top notch.

  • Superior optics
    Reviewed by LittleHouse - December 27, 2018

    This lens is ridiculously sharp, even on my 80D. I thought about buying the more expensive f2.8 version, but it’s only one stop better and doesn’t have image stabilization. This lens is priced well considering the quality your getting. I love it.

  • Amazing for events
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Lyndi - January 17, 2019

    I do a lot of club photography and this is my favorite lens for it. People are so amazing with how close I can be to them and get practically their whole body!

  • Great wide angle zoom
    Verified BuyerReviewed by KiloHotelphoto - August 7, 2018

    Picked this lens up for a upcoming trip to the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone. I figure while waiting for wildlife take advantage and grab some landscape shots. It’s typical L series quality build but I was surprised at how little it weighs. When I was first looking at it I was a little worried about it being a F4 but using it on a tripod for landscape it’s no problem and the IS really helps for city shots when walking around without a tripod. Only giving it 4 stars because I just haven’t had it long enough to really be able to give it 5 but it so far has all the makings of a 5 Star lens like the 70-200 2.8 IS II.
