Is the 16-35 ii good sharp at edges at F8 at 16? I'd be surprised.

I've been using one for 4 years now....have you tried one? I hope you aren't basing your opinions on forum chatter. Please take a look at my flickr page and see if there are any landscapes where the 16-35IIL is found to be lacking...then again, I never found the 17-40L particularly lacking either. Both are excellent lenses.

I haven't used one but I've read reviews to suggest its still a bit soft around the edges at F8, just as I feel the 17-40 is. I love the 17-40, I think it's dead sharp across most of the frame but certainly is far from perfect around the corners. I always took the 16-35 to be optically pretty similar to the 17-40 after about 5.6... I assume yours is sharp to the edges from the sounds of it.

Now you might be right, but a couple of low-resolution images on flickr are unable to show the technical merits of the lens (I like the photos though) because nearly everything looks sharp down-sized so much...

+1 We need 100% magnification for this. A screenshot from a corner of a 100% enlarged image could do I guess...

The 50 1.4 suffered heavy price drops here in germany today, about 15% down on several retailers. Hope that means they're getting rid of it and its replacement is on the way.

I would be very interested in how a new canon 50 would compare to a sigma art 50... Hope these are both available soon!

What is a "Sigma Art 50"?

Oh you mean like the 35 1.4 which is a big ass dream contrary to the older 50 1.4 and 85 1.4 which just fuck up on every full frame?

exactly. Which I hope against hope will rival Canon's 50 1.2L at the price of Canon 50 1.4 mk2.  ;D

Not on every full frame. My Sigma 85 works like a dream. AF is fine.

Not in my experience. The Sigma 50mm has a horrendous in-consistency getting focus.

Same for me. I got it once to play around with, sharpness is really nice but it not only focused wrong, it even focused wrong differently when focusing near or far so you couldn't even correct it with in-camera focus correction. Some people apparently have sent in their cameras and the lens to let it adjust at Sigma but boy I won't send them my 5D3 so that they can play around and adapt their lens to my body. This seems to happen mainly on full frame cameras and also with the 85mm.

.. And nothing about the 35 L II, well it's only rumored several times a year for the last better part of a decade.

some wide angle lenses are needed

16-35 f/4 IS USM
however i'd love to have a canon 12-24 4-5.6 USM

What would be the advantage of a 16-35 f/4 IS over a 16-35 f/2.8 II L? Sharpness? F/1.4 on my 50mm gives it the edge sometimes, even wide open...
30D, EF-S 10-22/ 5DIII, 16-35 F/2.8 L USM II, 28 F/2.8, 50 F/1.4, 85 F/1.8, 70-200 F/2.8 classic,
