Any of you 24 TSE users also got the 16-35 f/4? If so can you comment on the sharpness across the frame compared to the TSE?

Honestly speaking, i am thinking to get Sony A mount 16-35 instead of Canon 16-35 f4IS, in both cases i will use an adapter on my Sony A7R, and someone showed me that Sony 16-35 f2.8 lens is a remarkable capable lens, better than Canon 16-35 f2.8 mk1 and maybe same as or slightly better than mkII, i don't need IS or f4, f2.8 can be handy for me in many situations more than IS or f4, low light and indoors, i will not use this UWA only in landscapes so many will tell me only use f8 and above.

I have not used the f/4 version...I have used the f/2.8 MKI and while it was a nice sharp lens...it was nothing compared to the TSE...

+100 agree, my TS-E lenses did slay my 16-35 2.8mk1 no mercy in term of sharpness.

I have not ever considered that lens so will check it out. I dont need IS either and f/2.8 can be handy.

The TSE is the sharpest lens I think I have ever owned. I had my mind made up on purchasing another one eventually but then the 16-35 f/4 came along and I started to wonder if that may be a good choice as sample images seem very sharp even in the corners. The versatility of the zoom can be handy (but so can the shift and tilt functions of the TSE I suppose!)

While I have not done side by side comparison of the two lenses, I can say that 16-35 f4/L is very sharp indeed except perhaps at the very corners. My copy performs better at 16mm end than at 35mm. I do find TSE24 when used without a shift to be the sharpest lens I currently own but the difference between the two are not immediately apparent until one pixel peeps. In field use, with shift applied etc., the difference in sharpness between the two lenses becomes even smaller.

I've seen and remember the work you've done with the TSE24, and you would probably enjoy using the 16-35 f/4L too. If you prefer taking more "of the moment" shots than those where you would anticipate, compose, and manipulate, then the zoom would be a very useful tool; if on the other hand you miss all the work you need to put in prior to pressing the shutter button, then reacquire the TSE24. Aw heck, get both.



If it's in focus, it's pornography, if it's out of focus, it's art.
