... and a 16-35 2.8 II please Ah yes, but I already have one of those - and I would upgrade it in a heartbeat for a sharper lens
With the risk of getting off topic may I ask you for your opinion regarding this lens? I just sold my version 1 16-35 2.8 and I have not decided whether to get the 16-35 2.8 II or wait. Some background: In this FL range I have:
1. EF14 2.8 L II (actually it's slightly out of this range but still covers the need for AF and 2.8 in the widest possible rectilinear FL) Uses: 1. astrophotography, 2. landscapes
2. TS-E 17mm f/4L (with adapter for Lee filter system) Uses: Architecture, Landscape
3. Zeiss Distagon T* 21mm 2.8 1. Uses: Astrophotography, Landscapes.
4. EF35mm 1.4L Uses: General/people, mostly in extremely low light.
So I have not used 16-35 for a while. That and the fact that it has lots of coma (tested at both FL ends at f/2.8 )
and the fact that I want good edges made me sell it. Prior to the above mentioned lenses it was being used for landscapes.
Use will be for landscapes as I do not believe a 16-35 2.8 even at its 3rd incarnation would be suitable for astrophotography (that test at wide FL is left for EF14 II and Zeiss 21). However, a very good 16-35 copy could be handy in situations where it will not be practical to carry many different lenses.
