Canon’s latest full frame wide angle L lens, the new 16-35mm F/4L IS is now available and has begun shipping for pre-orders. The new lens is currently marked at $1,199, which is $400 cheaper than its F/2.8 (non IS) brother. But if you are into shooting video or prefer to have IS over extra stops of light then this may be the lens for you…
