Hi All,

Att Pic Lower Right Corner 100% Crop  and data to make one puke!

Canon should pay people who use this lens with their New 1DS MkIII

They should ban it from sale to MkIII owners.

Blah

Received my 1DS Mrk III last weekend down here in New Zealand and have been testing with my 16-35mm MrkII. Certainly I can see a difference in quality around the edges compared to my ID Mark II as one would expect comparing with a cropped sensor.

But in the end it is only in the corners were the softness really shows and at 24mm I was rather impressed after sharpening in Lightroom and adding some "Clarity".

The lens is slightly sharper than my 17-40 and has much less CA. So my advice is if you wish to say with a Canon wide angle zoom the 16-35mm MrkII is currently your best choice. Yes ... and looking through the new super bright viewfinder with an f2.8 wide angle lens is amazing!!!

So my choice is not so clear after all...    But if I understand all of the comments it seems that the 16-35mm II should be ok for landscape work with a full frame camera so long as I'm willing to use f8 or smaller.

Yours actually looks better than the 17-40L I had - it was trully atrocious in the corners. I gave mine away to a close friend with a 20D.

Mine's a lot better than those shown, but is still no powerhouse.

Lets hope Nikon's recent revival will give Canon the kick up the derier it needs, part of which being them needing to release an excellent wide angle zoom.

And a very happy one, since the 20D's smaller sensor avoids most of the really bad corner stuff .

As a follow up, there is another topic here called "Wide premium lens for 1DsIII" that has a link to http://www.16-9.net/  

I went there and if I understand it correctly, these people in the UK sell an adapter that will allow the new very highly rated Nikon 12-24 to be used on the 1DsIII.  It's a little confusing, but it seems that the current adapter does not have anything auto except focus confirm, but they are working on an upgrade that will have full auto.  If so, that would be great.
