New Canon 16-35mm F/4L Image Samples Hit the Web

By Anthony Thurston on May 22nd 2014

Canon announced their new 16-35mm a little while back, and now some sample images are starting to make their way online, and they are impressive. Canon China recently released these image samples from the new lens, and it appears to perform very well.

Here are a few of the sample shots.  You can find the rest of them over on the Canon China website.

We won’t be able to say for sure until we get this new lens in our hands for a review, but from what we have seen so far, it looks as if this new 16-35mm outperforms its 17-40mm brother, especially in the corners.

    Not a big fan of the 17-40mm – too soft for me, so if this is any sharper it may be a good choice. I look forward to a head-to-head test.

    I wouldn’t change out my 17-40 f4L for this. In camera correction pretty much makes this moot to me, as does PS’s lens correction tool.

    If you shoot on a crop camera and you don’t need IS, I guess there is no need for the new 16-35mm. At least not for me as the good center sharpnes of the 17-40mm is good enough on crop.

    Will the price of the 17-40mm drop?
