Reviews of Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS USM Lens*
Sharpest Lens I’ve Ever Used This is the 4th L-series lens I have purchased and it is the lens that has provided this biggest “wow” impression. Surprisingly sharp even at the edges. This lens arrived on an overcast day (nice even lighting) and in those first test shots, I could see every blade of grass everywhere in the frame. This is my new sharpness champ, and the ultra-wide view angle will be awesome for my upcoming photo safari to the Utah canyonlands.
Upgraded from EF 17-40mm f/4 L This lens is slightly better then (already excellent) EF 17-40mm f/4 L in every way plus it has Image stabilization system which may be very useful. In real life the difference is not really that noticeable. It is very good tool for professional architectural/real estate photography.
Worthy upgrade from 17-40mm Shot architecture and real estate with the 17-40mm for the last couple years. Purchased this recently and I’m glad I did. Kills my 17-40mm on edge sharpness… and sharpness in general. Edge to edge even at more open apertures. Out performs my friends 16-35 f/2.8 even. The IS is an added bonus. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a wide angle.
