$1219 CDN + free shipping:

They had some in stock a couple days ago, and if not, www.bccamera.com (external link) does price matches.

That 13% tax in Ontario is painful though

Wow. Better as here in switzerland where you dont "see" all the taxes...

All of these reviews forget one thing, how sharp is the f/4 lens at f/2.8?

There is mainly one reason why one buys an f/2.8 zoom, the need for faster shutter speeds. IS is no replacement for this. If you do not need fast, low light shutter speeds, then the the f/4 version is for you.

Now if Canon announces a 16-35 f/2.8 III...

Yes but the fact is that I already own the 2.8, which I dont need the fast shutter speed, however what I can sell for and what the F4IS would cost would STILL be out of pocket money, so is it worth it.

I take away from this thread that I should keep my 2.8 though!

Are you happy with your 16-35 f/2.8?

If you're not happy with it, then sell it. Otherwise, why spend more money on gear you already own and enjoy?

Generally speaking, a lens stopped down 1 - 2 stops is going to be sharper than a lens wide open; so, I would expect that the 2.8 @ f/4 is still likely to give better results than the f/4 @ f/4.

I would, also, suggest sticking with the current lens unless there is another quality of the newer lens that you just can't get out of the original. If this were a "new" purchase decision, the value assessment would likely go the other direction.

Having faster glass is always a bonus. Since you use tripod this is another bonus because this indicates your not needing "anti shake" hand holding the camera/lens combo.

At this moment in time this is the perfect opportunity for people wanting a 16-35Lmk2 f/2.8 because so many people are jumping on the new 16-35L f/4IS bandwagon. A friend of mine picked up a mint copy for 1050 CDN!!!

If your not going to miss f/2.8 the new f/4 lens will be something new to play with. 2 days ago I was tempted to buy the f/4IS to see what all the hype was all about....picked up another micro 4/3 panny Gh3 instead to be more sensible and useful. My take is I dont need redundancy and I find the 16-35Lmk2 f/2.8 to be an incredible tool for landscape or events photography.
