Certainly the adapter issues always a concern. I had special problems with internal reflections using TS-E 17 and 24, but don't recall experiencing it with the 16-35mm...the tilt-shifts may have unique troubles on that part.

But, to answer your question, if size/weight weren't a priority for me then my answer would be a strong "no." There is no other reason, aside from size/weight for me to prefer prefer the Sony FE 16-35mm over the Canon one.

AF performance is equal to 24-70L II on a7R II from my memory, although I usually kept it off for land/cityscape shooting.

OK, there is one weird thing with the lens on a7R II (just odd, not negative). If you switch IS off then the SR app thinks you switched it on and tells you to switch it off. Weird. So, you have to leave IS on during SR app uses. It's weird, but fine. Pictures come out amazing regardless.

Thanks for the feedback David! I definitely value your expertise in the realm of landscapes/architectur​e!

I'll probably add the lens to my kit again one day...probably not till the latter end of the year when more paid works starts rolling in again...The Canon can be had for quite a bit less than the Sony 16-35 F4, and is much cheaper than the 2.8 versions....but I'm broke from the a9 purchase since I decided to keep the rx1rII lol.

Worked on the campervan today, so no time to seek out a wonderful landscape.
Plenty of images coming out of the 12-24 at FM and I bet you all have looked at them.
So the lens arrives mid camper work so to get two birds with one stone this one is at 12mm.
So good news in doubles today. New lens and I only have one more piece of diamond plate to
install where the ceiling meets was above the sliding door on the right.

Im holding out for the 16-35 gm even though it takes away my favorite lox 21. the 10 will have to do for the UWA

However. I did NOT like the distortion on the 16-35/4 Canon ;) and am hoping that this Sony will perform like the 12-24 looks like it might.

The other thing I am noticing is that it appears sony has figured out the initial run quantities better. More peeps are getting the lenses and they seem to be in stock better than earlier models.

Get ready for a Lox 21 and FE 28, FE 55 sale

I can see shedding the Lox21 but never the FE 28 or 55...so little so light. Plus I did Milky Way with
the 28 and it's not bad.

Thanks. When I saw the artsy car paintings and the ambient light coming down the stairs I thought I might finally get a good shot of my car. Wish I had the tripod with me since I had to shoot at ISO 1600 or 3200 but Im satisfied with the result. Sony files are so forgiving :-P

crap you made me do the math. Sell the cv10 and lox get the 12-24 I would be ahead by about $300 bucks. Then sell the 55, 90, 70-300 and get the 70-200 2.8 I would be at par have a buyer for the 6500 and so then buy the A9 extra battery kit netting out at $3700

Kit would then be A7rII and 12-24/4 Landscape 28/2 for general and could cover astro. A9 70-200 2.8 for creative and mid range. Then when birding the 150-600 tammy

Hmmm

I am noticing on some of the 12-24 shots if you are not perfectly level there is little leeway for distortion. The cv10 distorts but not in the same "non-level" way.

Local camera shop had a pretty good deal on a used c-stand, so I snagged one today.

It sounds like a stupid thing to be excited about, but I've been using the Rapid Box XXL for my past couple of shoots and the damn thing keeps falling over. The set-up is pretty light-weight when using the AD600 and extension head, but because of the size of the modifier, a lot of the weight is distributed to the front of the stand and I have to very carefully hang the ad600 base on the side opposing the modifier to balance it....which means if the modifier turns even slightly, it tips over.


No such problem with the c-stand. It is a lot heavier, but if it means no more falls, it'll definitely be worth it. This whole set-up is massive, but I'm really happy with the rapid box xxl ....super soft light that really looks like natural light.

Quick test shot of my son because he just happened to be in the room while I was messing with this stand

I have a C-stand and I think you'll really like yours as much as I do mine Carlo. I also have a 'boom' so I can place a modifier directly overhead if I desire. As large and heavy as it is, it breaks down and sets up very easily.

Yeah it came with a boom arm too. I have a cheap-o aluminum and plastic boom arm, but even if I use sand-bags to balance it, the whole thing flexes and it's really sketchy.

It is surprisingly easy to set-up....its actually easier to set-up than a light stand (no expanding feet to set, and fewer locking knobs to jack with)
