Well Jens, That looks about what mine produced to begin with. I was very taken with the lens. But after a while ... it all changed. I hope for your sake that it continues to produce good results and I´m waiting to hear how it goes.

What do you mean? Did you do any firmware update? or any AFMA yourself?

I'm little... ??? ??? ???
There is only one firmware version to choose from, the one it came with.

Yes I have had it through FoCal and a manual Lens Align. The problem is that the AF is unstable. One shot front focus, next shot back focus, third shot is dead on etc. FoCal was unable to determine the AFMA factor. The chart looked like it had been hit by a shot gun. That´s why I did a manual job with my Lens Align setup. It was depressing to see how much focus varied from one shot to the other.

I posted some images a couple of pages back on this thread.

Comment: Sorry; The images are on the other Sigma thread ...

I thought you mentioned AF on your 50mm ART is much better over 35mm ART? So, you and Viggo are not happy with AF? I wonder how is wickidwombat's copy doing...

It WAS awesome, calibrated and hit perfect. I stayed indoors for a few days test shooting, cuz I was sick. But when I went out nothing hit, absolutely all over the place. I dialed in a +12(!!) to my already +17 in the lens via docking, then it hit again, redid everything and it looked perfect, few more days and it was VERY unstable again! So after four times of that cr@p I sent it to a repair shop. So done with that AF .. Hopefully they can do something with although I doubt they have any spare lenses to swap with, I doubt it's any different and I doubt they have parts to replace with that's any different.

Issues like this make me think twice now.

Look forward to hear your update.

I have signed up at Nikon rumors (felt almost like a criminal  :P) and posted a question there, to check if they have similar experiences. Apparently very few Nikon versions have been delivered, so the only answer I have so far is that there is none. I will follow up though.

All I can say is......

Couple of shots inside Peter's Church in Rome. Both shot with the 17-40.

Just behind St.Peter's grave, what an astonishing place...



An awesome statue inside the church.



Great shot Viggo  ;)

More options...Uhmmmmm, sounds good to me

Just like the big brother 24-70 II, the new 16-35 f4 IS MTF charts look awesome.

My 16-35 II & 50L are on ebay.

I'll hold off until I see some actual reviews of the 16-35 F4 but I suspect I'll be joining you in putting my 16-35 II on ebay as well...  (Especially since I take alot of video with that lens too)

Why trade in the 16-35 f/2.8 for the f/4.0? Wouldn't you guys prefer the faster aperture?

DOF, sharpness and of course 4stop IS.

894
I had my heart to set on a Canon version of the Nikon 14-24mm but I'm willing to take a crack at this one!! I'll wait for the reviews.  ;) :)
I'm with you, but I took the leap and pre-ordered this morning.  I'm going to sell of my 16-35 II and hope that the new lens is as good in person as it looks on paper :)

avoid changing lenses  ;D

16-35 f2.8 IS is my vote. IQ must be good as Nik 14-24 or better. 82mm filter thread mount helps

Looking at 16-35 f4 IS MTF chart, Canon is more than capable making high quality UWA zoom lenses.

897
This could be a another winner in Canon line up.

1. 4stop IS is a huge sale here. Add ND filter to it, you can have silky smooth water fall photo without tripod.
2. MTF charts look nice & clean compared to 17-40 and 16-35 II
3. Best of all, THE price tag. No need to look for 3rd party with MF

I'm putting my 16-35 II and 50L on Ebay sometimes this week. My crytal ball says 50mm is on the way... ::)

The 16-35/f4L IS is not weather sealed, which is the same as the 17-40/f4L. From the B&H listing:

* When an optional 77mm Protect filter is used, the lens realizes dust- and water-resistance for use in trying environmental conditions.

It has the same weather sealing as the 17-40, the 16-35 MkI and MkII, and the 50 f1.2L. What is your point?

That it isn't weather sealed.

Both 17-40 & 16-35 II are "water-resistant", according to Canon. They didn't said water sealed.

4stop IS , Uhmmmmmmmm music to my ears. MTF looks nice and clean.

4stop IS & sharp as Nik 14-24 or better............I'm in ;)

Can't wait to see MTF chart. Body looks like 24-70 II which very promising.

I find that IS isn't as effective at these shorter FLs.  I played with the 24 and 28mm f/2.8 IS lens, and I can get sharp pics at around 1/20s with IS off without too much difficulty.  4 stops from that would be close to 1s, and those were far from being sharp with any type of consistency...

I don't have steady hands. Without IS, the slowest shutter speed I'm willing to shoot is 1/60. Be able to shoot 1/10 and still getting sharp image would be a dream for many of us. It's nice to see Canon starts realeasing new lenses. Hope they will bring their best 50mm to the game.
