Great examples! Could you please do some 16mm @ f8 or f11, in original image size when you get a chance?

I'll try to get a decent photo tomorrow night. I have one on hand now, but I think it's one of the ugliest pictures I have ever taken :lol:

Nobody critiquing the photos, we are interested in performance. But if you are really that embarrassed...

Ok, here it is:

16mm @ f/8, 1/250, ISO 200. Shot handheld, focus was dead center on tree/shoreline. This was basically right after I got the lens, so was out doing some test shots at different FL's. Of course, it had to be the most boring, overcast day...

Looking back at some photos I took last night to test the IS out....mostly at 1/2 a second. The first batch of photos were garbage as I was carelessly putting a bit too much confidence in the IS. As I went along I started to more actively try to steady myself and control my breathing as I went along as was able to more consistently nail shots at 1/2 a second. There's definitely a technique involved and probably a learning curve, but handheld 1/2 and possibly even 1 second exposures are doable on this lens.

Quick example at 1/2 a second....nothing special, but very nice to see the beautiful star pattern in the specular highlights I've enjoyed on the 24-70II

I did a quick comparison with 16-35L II and this lens. Below is the one taken by f/4L IS 1/8sec f/8 @ ISO100. I had the 5DIII mounted on tripod and took comparison shots at f/4 and at f/8.
When I get a chance to, I will provide 100% corner comparison between the two lenses. What I've found was that this lens is very sharp as per its billing, but I was also delighted to find out that my copy of 16-35 II was no slouch either.

IS works beautifully. 1/6 sec f/4, handheld. No camera shake present.

I took the lens out for the first time today. Here are some first impressions:

- Feels great. Light-weight but well-built, focus ring and zoom ring are superb.

- IS goes a long way - especially given the max of F/4, gives a little more breathing room once the sun starts to set. Sometimes hard to remember to turn it off on the tripod, though.

- Previous comment in mind, this is obviously not a 1.4 lens, and has its limitations in low-light.

- Having owned the 17-40 and not being satisfied with its corner sharpness, having owned the Rokinon 14 and not being satisfied with manual-only - this lens is one I am confident I will keep. From the get go at F/4 it's right where it needs to be, and the fact it takes normal filters is a god-send.

- Compared to the price of the other 16-35, the 14mm, 17mm and 24mm primes, I think this is a real hit.

- Overall, when it comes down to it, this is simply a fantastic lens to use. My intentions are landscape/architecture​/street, and I have no doubt it will be put to good use for these purposes.

My initial findings are not at all different to what all other reviewers have already mentioned. What a fantastic lens. :D

SOOC pics. Barrel distortion @ 16mm. Straightforward barrel distortion; no big deal these days thanks to lens correction profiles and various methods in pp to correct it.

The flarelike thingies on the facade are reflections being cast from the windows behind me.
