What about 16-35L f/2.8 and 16-35L f/4 IS,which one is better for landscape?
The price I found on both of them is pretty close the same.
I can buy used 16-35L f/2.8 in absolutely like new condition for the same price like brand new 16-35L f/4 IS

I would personally get the IS as I rarely need 2.8 in an uwa

Heya,

The F2.8 zoom is pretty much disappointing, for an "L."

I would not hesitate to get the 16-35 F4L IS if the cost was suitable. Otherwise, I'd get a simple tried & true 17-40L.

Very best,

MalVeaux is right. The 16-35 2.8 Has its weaknesses. Reviews show the f/4 is sharper, and the IS is a nice bonus. I opted for the 16-35 f/4L for the IS. If you don't need the IS, the 17-40 is an awesome lens at a decent price. I regretted letting mine go, until I picked up the 16-35 f/4L.

Well,here is what I think,the f/2.8 could be handy in different situations, at 35mm with that aperture I can shoot pretty nice portraits on the fly with a very nice DOF, I'm looking for something versatile for landscapes/people photography. I'm not a pro photographer but the IQ is very important to me,but unfortunately we have always to find a compromise between quality and versatility.

Any thoughts?

The difference in isolation at 35mm (on FF) between f/2.8 and f/4 isn't a big deal to me. F/2? Okay, more differentiation and room for discussion... F/1.4? Now we've got the possibility for a completely unique look in the dSLR world. But f/2.8? Not terribly special in a WA for me. I'd go with the f/4 IS.

Guys! How good is 17-40L compare to 16-35L IS on 5D?
Is there is big difference in sharpness and overall quality on 5D between both of them?

I have it on 5Dc for a while. At 17mm huge distortions, soft at the corners. Good quality at 35mm.
