I am kinda surprised that the result are considered surprising... The 16-35mk1 was a POS 8 years ago.... I can't see why it would be comparable to a lens two generations later... I replaced mine with the 17-40 a couple of weeks after getting the 1ds mk2...

what I would be keen to see is how it compares to that lens.. Which is the obvious progenitor...

But thanks for the test! Is clearly a very good lens... I have been thinking about it for video use..
Striving hard to be the man that my dog thinks I am.

Under ideal conditions and a slug of PP and sharpening, even the much-maligned 16-35 f/2.8 version 1 could produce decent results. But I quickly learned to stop down to f/4.5 or more whenever I used it. I can't wait to start using the new version!
