  • Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L USM

    3 out of 10 points and not recommended
    constant f/2.8 aperture
    poor optical quality

    Very soft at the edges. I sent it back to Canon twice for them to "tweek" the optics and it did improve from it's out of the box performance but still poor compared to Nikon's 17-35mm. Why does Canon tout their full frame sensor when they can't seem to produce a first class wide angle lens and Nikon makes some wonderful wide angle lenses but only APS size sensor. A true photographic catch 22.
