The Canon EF16-35mm f/4L IS lens profile Distortion control is incorrect over most of the focal range. At 16mm the correction looks good. As the focal length increases the lens profile over-corrects the image causing pin-cushion distortion that gets progressively worse. It is most notable at the 35mm extreme focal length. Here's an example shot with this lens at 35mm on a Canon 5D MKII with Lens Profile Distortion settings of 0 and 100:
