Landscape Astrophotographers though will either continue using a 14mm which has a bulbuous front element too or will opt for a 2.8 zoom lens with no bulbuous element for better protection (from light) via a hood. At least this is what I need for that kind of photography...I can only assume, that filter users will opt for 16-35/4 anyway, as you usually use filters on tripod at f/8+ and don't care much for the speed of the lens. Conversely, action shooters could not care less about filters and will go for this lens, if it proves to be better than C16-35v2 or T16-28...From the images, it looks like a built-in hood with slightly bulbous front element. That's a bad news for filter users+1 Exactly! Add 1mm and you get a 2.8 zoom lens that takes filters!
That, and a coma free lens ...
