Does anyone but me find it bizarre that the APS-c version is actually wider than the full-frame version? If they could make this one 16mm, it seems like they could have made the full-frame version 24mm.
Nope, just you...
I'm sure it will have something to do with optic design, given the fact that canon only made a 28-300 too. Also, 16mm = 25.6mm on FF, which is closer to 28 than 24 in FF equivalent (just)!
16 is 25.6 only on Canon APS-C DSLRs. It is 24 mm on Nikon , and on Canon C100, C300 etc, where this lens might be invaluable for Run and Gun ENG work, or fast pace documentary settings.
