I received my new 16-35 lens yesterday. I am looking forward to using it for landscapes, and hand-held photography. The lens has image-stabilization which is rare for such a wide-angle lens, but for shaky me, it is a fulfillment of a wish. Yesterday, right out of the box, I took a hand-held shot downstairs at 1/8 of a second that came out acceptably sharp. The above photos are some of the very first. I should get a chance to do some landscape work Saturday.
