As a user of the current 17-40, I can assure you that corner resolution is not an issue to me. When i need resolution (landscapes etc), i use f/8-13 and I get very sharp images.
If this 16-40 IS hits the shops, I 'll definitely take it just for the IS!!!!
Even at f/11 there's plenty of room for improvement at the wide end.
I've been thinking for a while about selling my 15-85 since I'm not satisfied with the quality (good at 15 sucks at 85) and the colors that are "weird" (tough to describe) and because , anyways I was wondering if the 17-40 would be an upgrade IQ wise. I was also considering the 16-28 tokina for the 2.8 if anyone has experience with that lens.Can you post some sucky images at 85mm? I have the 17-40 and I was thinking to get the 15-85 because it is a more versatile all-around lens. I'm not planning to sell my 17-40 though, because I use it on 3 cameras(2 ff, 1 aps-c). 17-40 is very good if you can live with the lack of IS.
Mother nature put a great Christams day show this morning too, the fog raced in across the city to meet the sun at dawn in one of the prettier daybreaks I've seen....(G12 again)
You should sell me your lenses and buy a Nikon.Such an idiotic idea.
