Sinsear, 0674.jpg looks really bad in the left corner again. The grass that is in the same focus plan is sharp though. I have this same issue. I don't know if it is something with our lenses or something with the 16-35mm design. What aperture were you using?

By the way, check the test here: http://www.the-digital-picture.com/Reviews/ISO-12233-Sample-Crops.aspx?Lens=412&Camera=453&Sample=0&FLI=2&API=0&LensComp=101&CameraComp=0&FLIComp=0&APIComp=0

I've yet to shoot with my 16-35 on my mk3, but these photos you guys are posting don't look as good as what i  expect to see when i do. really, they don't look as good as what my 16-35 does on my 5d. From my exp with my 5d, stopped down to 5.6 or f8, that lens is actually respectably sharp. Granted, i'm used to shooting RAW and letting DXO do my processing with minimal input from me.

All of my photos were shot in RAW, using ACR 6.7 to process them (as DXO lacks the module to process them ATM).

Yes, this is normal. I've just evaluated this lens on my videolog and noticed it's terrible. I even thought I had a bad copy of such equipment, but many other photographers on the internet complain about that too.

I posted some examples on my tumblr page, they're now on page 6...

Here is the video clip. Audio is in portuguese. :-)

Yeah, it stinks that DXO doesn't have the software yet, but i'll wait.

I just don't see how this lens stinks. Out of the dozens of reviewing sites i look at from time to time I've never found a review that came to that conclusion. I find things like hey, nikon's 14-24 is the best thing ever, much sharper than that canon. but i've yet to see them tested against each other. Everyone's fav, Kenrockwell used to say that. then he got an f-EOS mount converter and he never pitted them against each other. Then he went to saying that some tokina was as good as the canon, which was in turn as good as the nikon.  Besides, if it was such crap, why do so many pros have it and use it so much. Occasionally they must need a clear image out of the thing right?  That said, i'm actually thinking of selling mine to reallocate the funds. But, i'd miss it.
