On article Canon announces 16-35mm F4L and 10-18mm F4.5-5.6 lenses (365 comments in total)

The 16-35 f/4L IS may be an optically superb more practical alternative to the 2.8 II, but it's not without tradeoffs. Notwithstanding the benefits of IS and its new optical design, it also will limit the precision of many of the most important AF points which are meant for 2.8 lenses and faster.

It's both nice and smart of Canon to round out the L line with a second tier product group that more can afford. But, like anything, there's no free lunch. I'd personally much rather see Canon invest in bringing IS to wide angle zooms that offers tangible benefit before rushing to fill-out its f/4 L line, but it clearly knows what the market happens to be and the products that will benefit its shareholders most.
