True.. but that seems a little odd as June 22nd is a Sunday?? I might have to drop in there the following week :-)

What are your guys thoughts on owning both the 24-70 II and this 16-35? A little bit of overlap..but from 16-24 it's a very different experience, just not sure it's the best option if I intend to only carry these 2 lenses (trying to keep the kit relatively light for travel.)

I've got this lens on pre-order and intend to try it out in any case, hoping I can get a lot of use for it. I know in having the Rokinon 14mm prior to it, that I was grateful for having an extra bit of width in the pack every now and then.

On full frame, 16mm is very different than 24mm, so the lenses serve two different purposes.

Also, focal range overlap is a good thing, not something to avoid, IMO. It means fewer lens swaps, or times where you may only need to carry one of the two lenses.

Different tools for different purposes.

24-70II is my workhorse wedding/event lens. That extra stop and the 36-70 focal range go a long way when shooting very dynamic events in erratic lighting. The 24-70 is the more versatile lens and has a lot of uses, whereas the 16-25 has a more specialized purpose.

16-35 is basically a dedicated landscape, venue, environmental shot lens for me. I also really like UWA FOV perspective for the dance floor shots during the reception. The UWA FOV provided by the 16mm focal length is a very distinct look that you can't create on the 24-70.

I agree, some overlap will be handy.

I often want something wider than 24mm and have been hoping for the long-rumoured 14-24 f2.8. But it looks like this will have to do in the meantime - I'm sure it will be lighter and easier to carry around too..

Best Buy now shows me this again. But I'm still expecting delivery to be the week of the 6/23.

I don't think this is a bad thing at all. I wish I could do this for my trip, but I can't swing a 24-70II at this point in time.

My hopeful kit for this summer will be:

16-35 4L IS
24-105 4L IS
Σ 50 1.4 Art

I'd love to add a longer lens, and still my rent a 135L for my trip, or maybe a 70-200 4L IS. But I don't know.

I agree with this completely. When I was shooting with my 30D, there was a huge difference between my 17-50 (27.2-80) and my 10-22 (16-35.2).

I can't wait to have my wide end back!

i'm thinking i will probably sell my 14mm, my 17-40 AND my 24-70II (given that i mainly use it under 35mm any way) to get this puppy. Then I might get the new sigma 50mm (sell my old sig 50) and be sorted.

i shoot weddings and the 24-70 basically only gets used for group shots and occasionally during the prep shots or dance floor shots, but again, it's always set to pretty wide. During the service i tend to use my 35/85 combo. hMMN, much to ponder...as the 24-70 is wonderful, but i just don't think i use it enough to justify keeping it :(

Mystik, I absolutely love your setup. I'd seriously would love to have the same one.

+1. I also worried about the overlap with my 24-105 first, but not any more cuz of this reason. The only thing to worry about is the weight, I guess, if u r like me. I'll be walking 10 hours a day with the glasses. (I'll be going to greece and portugal)

I actually considered to bring the 16-35mm and the 50mm prime, instead of the 24-105mm. What do u guys think?

When i moved to FF; i sold my 24-105L and picked up a 17-40L + 50L to replace it. Every once in a while I miss the 24-105's flexibility (Traveling), but then it gets dark and I revel in not needing a lens swap.

For me, the 24-105L is such a versatile focal range for a "walk around" lens that I almost always bring it along, unless I am trying to force myself to work at the wide end only. I have taken only the 17-40L and left the 24-105L at home a couple of times, but only when visiting a location I am very familiar with and plan on going back to in the future.

My tendency has been to leave the 17-40L at home and take only the 24-105L when I want to travel light. I am not sure how that will change when I replace the 17-40L with the 16-35L f/4 IS.

Those samples look fantastic! Really impressed by the wide open quality at 16mm (and the 35mm ones as well!).

Looks like a stunner of a lens. Can't waittttt!
