Reviews / Re: Review - Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L
« on: September 12, 2013, 11:19:53 AM »
What I'd really like is a nice sharp 17mm.  Something like the TS without the movements.  I'd even settle for f4.  I'd even take the 17-40 f4 if it was sharper.  But in this age of super teles and zooms, is my request so difficult?  A sharp 17mm, corner to corner?  Zeiss 18mm?

I have the Zeiss 18/3.5 on my 5D mk III, and the lens is very sharp corner to corner. This lens is also rated as one of the ten sharpest lenses tested by the Swedish magazine Foto, http://translate.google.com/translate?sl=sv&tl=en&js=n&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&u=http%3A%2F%2Ftidningenfoto.se%2Fde-skarpaste-objektiven-fotos-tio-i-topp-lista%2F%23Carl%2520Zeiss%2520Distagon%2520T*%252018%2F3%2C5%2520ZF. småbildskamera = full frame camera.

The B+W XS-Pro Digital ND Vario MRC nano filter (http://www.schneiderkreuznach.com/en/photo-imaging/product-field/b-w-fotofilter/products/filtertypes/nd-filters/nd-vario/, with Google translate, http://translate.google.com/translate?sl=de&tl=en&js=n&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.schneiderkreuznach.com%2Fen%2Fphoto-imaging%2Fproduct-field%2Fb-w-fotofilter%2Fproducts%2Ffiltertypes%2Fnd-filters%2Fnd-vario%2F) have started to arrive (unfortunately not in Sweden jet...). But I under if it exist any review of this filter, does it have the X problem (http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=8662.0) that many other variable ND filter has? How is the optical quality? B+W filter is used to be superb...

Thanks in advance!

I have previously owned the 70-200 zoom (both f/2.8 and f/4 version), but didn't think it gave the extra reach compared to the 24-105, and the 2.8-version was also to heavy to carry. I am now using the 70-300/4-5.6L and think this is the ultimate travel telezoom. it is made like a rock, compact and "light". And not to forget, very good optically.

Canon has scheduled a press event for August 21st, 2013, http://photorumors.com/2013/07/30/canon-press-event-scheduled-for-august-21st.

I hope for an updated 17-40/4L that is sharp all over…

Lenses / Re: WA lens advice 16-35 II or the TSE 17
« on: June 10, 2013, 11:35:01 AM »
How about the Carl Zeiss Distagon T* 18mm f/3.5? I was also looking for a sharp WA lens for my 5D, I choose the Carl Zeiss 18/3.5, and the lens is extremely sharp corner to corner – only the 17 TS lens can compete with, and the Carl Zeiss lens have 82mm filter thread.

The Swedish magazine Foto have rated the Carl Zeiss Distagon T* 18mm f/3.5 as one of the sharpest tested lenses, http://tidningenfoto.se/de-skarpaste-objektiven-fotos-tio-i-topp-lista/#Carl%20Zeiss%20Distagon%20T*%2018/3,5%20ZF

« on: May 13, 2013, 09:21:04 AM »
i agree to that. i don´t need or want an IS version when it increases the price a lot.
but i would pay more for a (noticable) optical better 17-40mm f4.

I would also like to see an updated 17-40/4L (or a 16-35/4L), hopefully with IS, but most imported with high optical quality.

IS versions usually require a larger filter size (front element), that's supposedly why the 24-70/4 has IS and the 24-70/2.8 hasn't. For the 17-40L with 77mm now this might still work, but for the 82mm 16-35L it could be tricky.

In any case if the corner iq is also improved you'd probably see more weight and certainly a massively "improved" price tag. The question is if the 17-40L mk2 could still be the L budget choice - and if you want heavier and better, you can get the current 16-35L right now.

Nikon have a 16-35/4 VR, http://imaging.nikon.com/lineup/lens/zoom/widezoom/af-s_nikkor16-35mmf_4d_ed_vr/index.htm, with 77mm filter size. The 16-35/2.8L II that I have seen, have not that good optical quality in the corners.

Canon can keep the current 17-40/4L as a budget lens, and still have a sharp (more expensive) 17-40/4L (or 16-35/4L) as they do with the 70-200/4L and 70-200/4L IS, I think that is exist a demand for both of them...
