Here is the Canon RF 14-35mm f/4L IS USM

3) How wide is the 14mm? You may think that's a bit of an odd question, but according to the patent, the actual focal length was 14.8mm, so calling it 14mm is being a little generous. Would be curious to see the width compared to my 14-24mm, as well as some 14mm primes.
Good point.
My experience is that the zooms of various manufacturers have different ideas of focal length.
My Tamron 28-75 was shorter at 75 than my Canon 70-200 at 70. I was scolded by many online that that was the way things are.
IMO that is nonsense as the camera enthusiast and professional market obsess over published specs and treat them as gospel.
I am thinking that the Sigma may not be quite as wide as you think or maybe the Canon will not be. Its a toss-up. Frankly, the markings out to be accurate. If the Canon is really 14.8mm then that makes significant difference while at longer FLs a 1 or 2 mm difference is negligible.

Just announced, with a price point at $1,699 usd. Jesus Christ. I was hoping for closer to $1,200. I am stunned that it’s only $400 less than the 15-35 f/2.8. Bummer.
Well at least better then the Swedish price of $1,899 USD (excluding the 25% VAT).
EF 16-35 is a bargain with it's $1,030 USD here ($979 USD at launch).

€1849 here in .nl. With the new RF100 in pre-order, my 17-40L be safe from replacement for a few years more :)
I'm in the same boat. My 17-40 is still going strong and adding €1500 to it for a trade-in towards this 14-35 is just too steep for me.
Now lets hope that the second hand market will see some nice 16-35 F/4's appear.

RF stands for require funding
Once again Canon is price gouging the UK by 10% relative to the EU (and to repeat earlier stuff, Nikon and Sony don't do this, it's a genuine rip off). RF stands for Rip-off For-us. Fortunately, we have honest grey market sellers.
