Nice lens! At this point, my $2200 is going to the TS-E 17mm, though.
I'm watching mirrorless cameras progress, and am considering renting a A7r for my next ultra low light job, bring both it and my 5D MK III.
A dream come true for many landscape shooters & travelers. A7r + FE 16-35mm f4 OS = light weight package with a full pocket of spare batteries.
Anyways, Canon 16-35 f4 IS is a GREAT lens.
Noboby said the Canon is not a great lens, it's likely the best of all 3, and I will probably get one in a near future.
However I am not sure I get your point about the A7r combo :
Canon 5D3 (905g) +16-35 L IS (615g) + 2 LP-E6 (about 150g) = 1715g
Sony A7r (407g) + 16-35 ZA (518g) + let's say 5 NP-FW50 batteries, to make it balanced (215g) = 1140g
When you go for landscape / travelling, it's very likely you carry at least a small backpack, so carry 3 more batteries is not really an issue (except for the cost) since the Sony batteries are about half the weight of the Canon ones. On the other hand 575g total weight less is not subjective when hiking / travelling. IMHO, for landscape / travel / architecture (and I am NOT saying for sports, birding, weddings or whatever else), the Sony combo wins, especially when you take in account the sensor low ISO capabilities (although for travel some might not want the extra resolution).
Judging by the released image, the unicorn exists and is beautiful. It also seems very solid and compact. It was a long wait.
Few months back, I almost buy v9 for high ISO purpose. Thanks to Neuro. He suggested to wait for v10 - faster PP in prime + others...
I just bought v10 ELITE package. Can't wait to use it in up coming halloween photos(12000-25000ISO)
This is my 1st time playing with DxO. Here is 25000ISO taken with 1dx. Export took quite a bit of time, good 2-3mins per photo. Might take me some times to get use to new software.
Little bit of Tone + texture
If I have a lot of pics I go through them all adjusting settings as required then batch process them all over night or when I'm at work so the processing time isn't really an issue for me (I'm not making money from this). The first computer I used DXO 9 on was taking about 12-15 mins a photo!!
I happened to check CPW today, and noticed that both body only 7D's as well as Kits are commonly on stock.
Sure, the big stores sell out, but only a few days after the cameras have started shipping, there appears to be no problem getting one from a Authorized Dealer without paying a inflated price.
Some have bought them on speculation, and are going to find there is no profit in selling them, unless, of course, they manage to convince someone that they are not available.
There is nothing wrong with the camera, but money is tight, and the camera is, imho, over priced. I expect that they will be a bit harder to find after Black Friday, but gray market camera will be flooding ebay by then.
Camera Canada sells them for $1698 USD right now, and two US Authorized dealers have them on stock.
Everyone has kits, and, again, you can save over $100 from Camera Canada
About weather sealing and build detalis
This is why I don't buy used stuff from them
That makes no sense, they probably take more time, with more care and attention, than the person who put it together originally.
Their core business is not based on camera sales, it is based on camera reliability, every lens they sell comes with a bench test result and it is adjusted to be as good as it can be, something no production EF lens gets.
