Canon EF 16-35 f/4L IS Sample Images
« on: May 17, 2014, 08:04:53 AM »

I’m not sure how I missed these, but Canon China has posted same images from the upcoming Canon EF 16-35 f/4L IS. The images look good, and the corners look better than the EF 17-40 f/4L. However, we won’t know for sure how much better the lens is until we get some real world reviews. View the sample images here.

I wonder if the geographic divisions are somewhat independent. Why would Canon China post pictures but nowhere else? They make seemingly random and uncoordinated marketing efforts much of the time (such as the U.S. EOS-M decisions)

They published those photos a few days ago in the Netherlands by Canon. But, small size. Seems marketing wise not consistent.

Doesn't look very sharp in the corners (photo of the white house and the church). Or am I a pixel peeper now and does it look better than the 16-35 f/2.8 II?

to be honest i don´t see a big improvement over my good 17-40mm copy.
don´t know where you see better corners...

but i hope for more examples.
canons image examples suck 90% of the time anyway.

I can't tell much of anything really from any of those photos. None really have much corner detail. We also don't know where the focus points were for any of them.  I look forward to trying my own. You can tell a lot very quickly by focusing up close and looking at grasses and dead leaves in the foreground corners.

This new lens seems pointless to me - it's even longer than the f/2.8II and weighs almost the same. The 17-40 is the hands down winner for travel and portability in general. If I'm going to lug a WA that big, then it better have a 2.8 aperture.

The white house is 17mm f/8. Hard to say where the focus point was, but corners look sharp to me, some distant details may be a soft because the focus point may be close to the lens.

The church looks good, 16mm f/8, again don't know where the focus is, but should have lots of DOF. The shot is not razor sharp everywhere, but not bad. It is a 10 second exposure, so there could be some camera movement, you can't know how careful they were, or whether they used a good tripod.

Unfortunately, the only thing you can do is wait for reviews from good reliable sources.

Those are VERY complex angled scenes and who knows where they placed the focus (which matters a LOT for scenes like that).

Totally disagree. I could care less (grammar police, using this in the NEW accepted form so shhhhh :D) about f/2.8 for this range. IS matter a lot more as does raw image quality.

Wouldn't it have just been faster to make it "couldn't" instead of going through the whole disclaimer?!

well, unlike other manufacturers, Canon usually post the worst in the image samples...

so you have a bottomline to start with your expectation of this lens.
