Eldar, candyman,

thanks, I'll keep you updated.  So far, I didn't encounter any focus problems in any light situation. In the museum shots, it's halogen and tungsten, mixed with daylight. I have two jobs coming, one Sunday, one Monday to Wednesday. Daylight, indoor tungsten, indoor fluorescent, energy-savers, all mixed with daylight. I'll try the Sigma 50A, have the 24-70/2.8 L II with me as backup.

After completing to upload the 3 JPEGS from RAW, I'll add six night-shots, 960px, EXIF intact.

Cheers,
Jens


Thanks  :)

Hello Jens, thanks for your post and the photos.
What was your indoor low light experience with the AF specifically with white contrast subjects in the frame?

I call this Mr. Blue Jay we are now old friends.  He let me grab this shot a few weeks ago.  Took about 3 months to get up this close.  This was shot with a Canon 5D Mark III and the great 135mm L lens.

I like the way it looks at you  :D

It's like: "Did you get my picture? Because I am going to fly away now..."

Puffin, how many sand eels can you get in your mouth, the answer lots.

That is a great picture

Some examples.
They are only JPG and a small size.
Bokeh seems nice.

These are supposed to be from 16-35/4L IS? Can you link the source please? 600x400px image is not really evaluable :)

Exactly. No RAW.
Source is Canon Netherlands:

In Sweden the new 16-35/4L IS is introduced at 10390 SEK, that is $1504.75...

$2000 in the UK at today's exchange rate...


Seen in the Netherlands for €1099 - May 13th 2014 - with todays currency rate : $1507,66

Reading and Understanding lens MTF charts is a nice writeup about how to interpret the chart.
Thanks. Great article. I bookmarked it.

I am not a good MTF reader :-\


Can someone explain to me the IQ difference between the 16-35 f/2.8II and the 16-35 f/4 IS based on the MTF's?
I put them here (upper images are the 16-35 f/2.8II)


Simple, more contrast (bold lines) and more sharpness in the corners (thin lines), from left to right = center to extreme borders, the higher the lines on the graph, the more transmission of contrast (bold) and sharpness (thin), usually, black lines are for wide open aperture whilst blue lines are for f/8. At least, if Canon did not change its MTF legend :)

EDIT: after more observation of those MTF from 16-35/4L, damn, that will be bitingly sharp at f/8. Landscapers rejoice :)


Thanks.
So based on the MTF charts, the 16-35 f/4 IS outperforms the 16-35 f/2.8  @f/4 and higher. Hope to see some real field tests/reviews soon.

I am very curious about the quality of the 16-35 f/4 IS.
Can't wait for the reviews...

EDIT: interesting to see the design matching the 24-70 II
Maybe the new Canon L line?

I have the 35IS and it is a beauty. Highly recommend it.

I choose the 35/f2 IS above the Sigma (knowing it has slightly less IQ than Sigma 35) because of smaller fit to my 6D. It makes a very good walk about /street package (6D+35f/2IS) Balance is really great! I am sure also great on your 5D MKII.
Also - for me - the IS i.c.w. 6D low light works great for indoors - like in a cafe etc. 
It also has a very nice bokeh: http://www.the-digital-picture.com/Reviews/Canon-EF-35mm-f-2-IS-USM-Lens-Review.aspx

EDIT: Also what is nice is the MFD en MM of the 35 f/2IS : 9.4"(240mm) - MFD and 0.24x MM.
I use a Raynox DCR 250 Super Macrolens to go along with it - small and easy to carry as well while doing streetphotography.

If you need it this summer, consider the Sigma 35 f/1.4 ART

I got mine on May 7th. I bought it n the shop and did not pre-order it. It was the only copy they had. Other shops in the Netherlands seem to get it only by the end of May.
