The-Digital-Picture has completed their review of the brand new Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L III. As you would expect from a latest generation Canon L zoom, the lens is a stellar performer and worthy of its hefty price tag.
The MTF charts predicted excellence in regards to 16-35 L III image quality and the good news is that I think you will find that expectation fully delivered. With a pair of Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L III USM Lenses going through formal and informal testing, we have not been left disappointed. This lens is absolutely razor sharp across the entire full frame sensor at 16mm f/2.8, showing very impressive resolution and contrast. Stopping down makes very little 16mm sharpness difference in the center of the plane of sharp focus. Read the full review

It looks like Canon USA and ebay grey market selling GetItDigital have reached an agreement and Canon has dismissed the suit. The Canon USA suit against F & E (BigValueInc) is still ongoing.
Eric Reagan over at Photography Bay has a great break down of the dismissal…
The dismissal “with prejudice” is the red herring that there was a settlement agreement between the two parties. Otherwise, Canon would have simply dismissed the case without prejudice – meaning that it could re-open the case at a later date for any given reason. Get It Digital wanted the case closed with the option for Canon to re-file and that would have been part of the terms of the settlement. As long as Get It Digital lives up to end of the settlement agreement (i.e., stops selling gray market cameras), Canon won’t sue it again. Read the full story
Eric thinks the settlement between Canon USA and GetItDigital will be similar to the settlement F & E and Olympus agreed to previously.
