Why I am on the fence with the EF 16-35IS
Jul 29, 2014

The one reason I am still on the fence with the EF 16-35IS is the EF-S 11-22 IS lens. The latter is small (about 2x the size of the 40STM lens), light (220 grams), well-built (typical of the first three EF-M lenses), and optically very good. Add three stops of IS, and the lens punches well above its weight.

I'll be passing through Singapore shortly where the EF lens can be had for about $1,000. Decisions, decisions (file this one under First-world Problems)...
