Just emailed my camera guy & he apologized over the holidays the 16-35 II was sold! I'm a bit disappointed but whats meant to be is meant to be! I guess i can put away that $ meant for the lens.....FOR NOW until he gets in another! Now he owes me one....maybe a bit more off the asking price of the next one! Hey Haydn1971, lmk how the 16-35 II treats you & send me a message in my inbox...im curious, thanks! Like i said, i luv my 17-40 but 2.8 is big w me so its prob worth the upgrade!

Man, it's always a drag when that happens but it's sort of a relief too.  (In a 'guess it wasn't meant to be' sort of way.)

Have you considered the 16-35 v1 lens?  Maybe this suggestion will draw a lot of critics but I've always loved my v1 16-35 and the filter is 77mm, not 82mm so it may match some of your other lenses.  You might even get it for less!
Yes, but what would  surapon  say ??  :D

So you're saying that the B+W SLIM UV filter 82 mm MRC does not support the lens cap? Oeps, that's a first for me. Just paid 104 euro for it, ouch. I bought this filter on recommendation because of the UWA lens.
I have to contact the dealer to see if exchange is possible.

Correct - the Slim mount has no front threads, so you must use the provided slip-on cap (more like a slip-off cap, unfortunately).  The Slim filter is 3mm thick, the XS-Pro mount is 3.4mm thick, has a front thread, and will not vignette on the 16-35L II.  The 82mm XS-Pro is the one to get...

That's funny u mentioned that! He replied back to me he has a v1 copy in excellent+ condition listed for $1,000 but  sure I can get for about $900 based on my history there. For $300 (maybe $250) more for the v2. That's my only concern which is I've been thru upgrading all my original lenses so I do t wanna go thru this again in the future because its so costly! All my glass is L-glass now! I know $300 is $300 even though I'm sure the v1 is fine. As far as filters r concerned, that's ANOTHER damn expense I could save however I would need a 77 regardless since my UVs never come off my current lenses. So the cost btwn a 77 & 82 can't be that much!

Well, it's not exactly the same, but I had decided I wouldn't buy another lens for quite some time, but saw a a 70-200 f2.8 L for $360 and just bought it, who would pass? ;D

Where exactly did you find that deal?  I'd cal that a "once in a lifetime" find.
