My Review of the Canon 16-35mm f/4 IS L Lens

Published August 1st, 2014 by Devteam

THE FINAL WORD:  The 16-35 f/4 IS is just the latest in a string of really excellent, high quality professional lenses put out by Canon.  It’s a highly competent lens, that does a marvelous job of managing problem areas where other ultra wide angle lenses tend to struggle.  However, to get that incremental improvement in performance, it comes at a nearly 2x the cost over the really excellent and arguably better built Tokina 16-28mm f/2.8.  In the end, it’s up to you to decide if the improvement in optical performance is worth it.  For me, I really like the 16-35 f/4, I just wish it were priced a little bit lower, but I’d probably be willing to bite the bullet and pay it to get that noticeable improvement in high contrast areas around windows in my interior shots, my clients will appreciate the difference - well, at least I’ll think they’ll appreciate the difference :-)
