Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8 L II USM Lens Review

This is a tough test for a lens this wide - contrast is hurt by lights reflecting from the sides of the target, but it provides good comparison data. There is a noticeable improvement in barrel distortion at the wide end - you will see that the top crop image details appear smaller in size compared the original 16-35 L.
