Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM

From the manufacturer

The EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM is a high performance, water-resistant, and ultra wide-angle Canon L-series lens. It has been specifically designed for improved edge-to-edge image quality that will meet the strict requirements of professional and high-end amateur photographers. It features 3 high-precision aspherical lens elements, each of a different type: ground, replica and GMo for even better image quality than the original EF 16-35mm f/2.8L USM. The circular aperture produces a beautiful and natural background blur when shooting at wider apertures. Other features include internal focusing, a ring type USM (Ultra Sonic Motor), and new AF algorithms for fast and quiet autofocusing.

From Wikipedia

The EF 16–35mm lens is a family of professional wide-angle lenses made by Canon Inc. The original version, the EF 16–35mm f/2.8L USM, replaced the EF 17–35mm f/2.8L USM lens, which had itself replaced the EF 20–35 f/2.8L lens.
The lens has an EF mount to work with the EOS line of cameras. Other than the front element, it is sealed against dust and water, and features a diaphragm which remains nearly circular from f/2.8 to f/5.6.[1]
The EF 16–35mm f/2.8L USM was replaced by the EF 16–35mm f/2.8L II USM early in 2007. The main change saw the lens adopt a new optical design featuring 16 elements in 12 groups.[1] Other changes include a 35g increase in weight, a larger 82mm filter diameter and a longer length.[1]
The new model II lens has garnered favorable to excellent reviews, and has been used in independent feature films like Marianne which was shot using a Canon EOS 7D.[2][3][4][5][6]
The newest member of the family, the EF 16–35mm f/4L IS USM, was announced in May 2014. While it is one stop slower than the other 16–35mm versions, it is the first L-series wide-angle zoom to offer image stabilization.[7][8]
