Sharpness, resolution, color fringing, resistance to flare make the old 16-35 look sick and are frankly better than my fabulously expensive 24-70 f/2.8L II, which is kinda depressing.

Are you speaking in general or about the posted comparisons?

In the 24mm series, you are comparing one lens' middle FL with the other's extreme wide end. I see a slight advantage to the 16-35/4 IS (if I have the order correct) but at the same time recognize the feat performed by the 24-70 II. In the 35mm series, I see the 24-70 II as the winner.

I have seen no 16-35/4 IS images posted here or anywhere else that should cause anyone to become depressed.

Being expensive is a matter of opportunity. I believe we've seen the 24-70 II sell for a s little as $1699. All someone has to do is wait for the next real sale, not the rebate sale.

Stop living in denial. You've been arguing the same thing, even before test results were in. And that's just childish.

(and this comes from someone who has no intention whatsoever to buy this new lens)

Splendid work, Canon!

Another nonsensical post from Foggy. Time to come in from the fog.
