I haven't, but as a happy owner of a 16-35mmv2 i'd eat my hat if the 24-70 didn't give it a sound beating. I consider a 24-70mm f2.8 a much less extreme design, coupled with the much higher price point and a handful or years newer design, i can't imagine anything less.

16-35 II is no where near 24-70 II from f2.8 to f5.6 - over all range. Can't wait for Canon next WA, similar or better to Nikon 14-24. Sorry to say that 16-35 II is not "De Lens" for Canon.
