fancy doing a side by side comparison at 16mm, f4? I have been thinking about getting the 14-24mm but seems like a bit of a hassle to work with manual aperture.

And now 16-35 sounds like a perfect lens. Only think stopping me is the use for astrophotography. f2.8 offers that extra stop of light..



A few pages back I posted a link to a review that compairs the 16-35 2.8 with the new f4.... The review says the f4 is still the better lens for astrophotograpy.

Ofcourse, I kinda expect canon to release a updated 2.8 at some point. :)

I would but can't until my d810 gets here. I am selling my d800e and dont want to put anymore on the shutter ( it only has 1574).

I sold my 14-24 when this lens is anounced. I had done a lot of side by side test on my 5d2 and 5d3, agianst 16-35II. the 14-24 has very impressive sharpness to the corners at f2.8, but, I found from a practical standpoint, I preferred my 16-35II. At f11, there was little separating the two in terms of sharpness. the 14-24 is very flare prone, and does not take filters. the 16-35 would be a far far better landscape lens. If I were shooting on an a7r for example, I would buy the 16-35 f4 over nikon any day. the only exception to that would be nightscapes, shooting at 2.8

Does anybody owning this nice lens has tested its filter stacking abilities ? 2 filters (1 slim + 1 one normal nd grad for example) at 16-18mm are OK without black corners... or not ?

What bugs me about that lens is that it has no 82mm filter thread, as my 16-35 2.8 and the TSE 24Lii both have that size and i only have 82mm filters..

Would the 16-35 f/4 hood fit when a 77->82mm step up ring is used?

Not a chance.

I like it because my 77mm filter works on the 24-70 and 70-200 as well as this lens.

No, it won't fit. Just get a step-up ring as you mentioned and buy another 82mm Canon lens cap. Problem solved!

FYI, on the topic of step-up rings... I purchased a Sensei 77-105mm aluminum step-up ring for less than $10 or $20, and my CPL was absolutely ridiculously aggravating to get off. There was definitely some binding going on. After that experience, I picked up a 77mm B+W XS-Pro CPL, along with a Heliopan 72-77mm step-up ring for my 135L. The build and quality of the Helipoan piece was amazing. It's brass construction which is top notch and screws on and off with amazing quality. To me it's absolutely worth the extra cost. That extra time and aggravation would be something to tolerate when you're in the field and on the go. Fussing about trying to get it loose will lead to a slip, oops, drop, smash, shatter. Eff that! My 105mm CPL is now strictly used with my Lee FK.

Well if i would ever use a stepup ring i surely would take a good one. These things, even high quality arent that much more expensive, right? I mean 10$ or 40$ doesnt make that difference to me especially compared to the price of my existing filters (i think about 400$ the CPL and NDs i have)

Oh, there definitely is a difference in price, but also quality. I also agree that it's worth it.

for landscapes, it's no brainer.. it's the nightscapes/astrophoto​graphy that's making me think a bit harder. but definitely more inclined towards 16-35mm
