the original 16-35 arguably had the worst corners at 16mm, of the ultrawide L lenses canon makes. it also had the worst flare and microcontrast. it had excellent central sharpness, and was a very popular wedding/pj lens.  even at f11, the new f4 lens will be a fair bit better in the corners at 16.

compared to 16-35II, it appears the new lens has great improvement in the corners bellow f5.6 to f8.  It also has a more even performance throughout the image, as 16-35II has a bit more of peaks and valley's, but certainly not quite as much of a difference as you see here.

the 16-35 f4 IS, 24-70 F4 IS, and 70-200 f4IS make an amazing landscape setup.
