This lens is weather sealed to protect against moisture. The inside of the lens is gasketed, but the filter is needed to completely seal the lens. The lens remains the same size, but the inner barrel expands from 28mm from just 16mm.

Typically Canon L lenses have an 8-blade diaphragm. The Canon EF 16-35mm F2.8 L II USM only has seven blades. The circular shape of the 16-35 L II's blades help create desirable round-shaped OOF highlights.
