B&h mail says it is weather sealed with an optional protection filter.
First time seeing that! Any other lens have that kind of sealing?

fun stuff!
i like the lenses, they seem pretty nice and it's pretty amazing to see Canon price something at $299. Also, the 16-35 is fairly reasonable at 1199, especially compared to the Nikon equivalent. When the price drops in a year or so this will be really nice value.
for me though, the 11-22 and eos-m are perfect.

The 16-35 f/2.8L II and the 17-40 f/4L both similarly require an optional filter to complete the dust and drop protection.

Canon EF 24-70 f/2.8 L II also requires a filter for complete sealing.

Quite, though one swallow can start a choking fit  ;)   Let us hope that there is much more to come.

I can't decide decide if my 16-35 2.8 II is obsolete or not now...
Some cameras… With Canon written on them. Oh, and some lenses… Also with Canon written on them. Oh, and a shiny camera with Fuji written on it too...

Feel free to have a wander round my flickr

The somewhat affordable price of the 16-35 makes me worry...

These are supposed to be from 16-35/4L IS? Can you link the source please? 600x400px image is not really evaluable :)

Entry Level Trilogy: 10-18mm, 18-55mm & 55-250mm

Mid Level Trilogy: 16-35 f/4.0, 24-70 f/4.0 & 70-200 f/4.0

Holy Trinity: 16-35 f/2.8ii, 24-70 f/2.8ii & 70-200 f/2.8ii

According to the lineups above, the 16-35 f/2.8 let's the Holy Trinity down somewhat as there's many options out there that rival or best it.

My opinion and judging by how the MTF charts indicate an obvious improvement in the new wides, I see a 16-35 replacement in the form of a 12-24 before year's end.

I guess many of the L glasses (ex: 70-200 f2.8 IS MkII) reported to have weather sealing, have this feature. The users manual silently claims that the lens becomes sealed when a protection or UV filter is screwed-in to the front of lens.

Interestingly B&H list the lens at $ 1,199 in the UK its listed by Park Cameras at £ 1,199 at current exchange that makes it $ 2,014 our side of the pond.  The US price converted is £ 713.00 our side of the pond granted the US price needs the sales tax added whilst the UK price include 20% sales tax (VAT). Even if you add 20% to the US list it comes out at $1,498.75 dividing that by the current exchange rate makes it £ 892.11 making the US price
£ 306.89 cheaper. Riff off Britain is alive & well.
