I love my 16-35L it is probably attached to my 5DmkII about 95% of the time. I don't find the distortion to be too extreme at 16, it's definitely an improvement on the distortion that the 17-40mm produces, which I could never get used to. Which is why I exchanged it for the 16-35. Since I picked it up, I generally don't use my 24-70 unless I plan to shoot people, but when I do that, I'm more likely to use my 100mm prime. It just feels more right in the hand. And I don't find myself wondering where the zoom is.
I wish I could comment on the 8-15mm, I really want to try it out some day. It appears to be a very neat lens.
