David Hart: I have the 24-105 F/4L on my 40D and love it. I paid $1040 for it in 2008. Today, it's selling for $100 more ($1150) for a new one on Amazon. The pre-order price of the 16-35mm is about $50 more.
Since I have the 24-105mm, I was wondering if having the 16-35mm would be useful on my 40D, allowing for the 1.6x crop factor. The 16-35mm would be equivalent to starting at 25.6mm and the 24-105mm would be equivalent to starting at 38.4mm.
I found this image on canonlensblog.com which gives an approximate of the difference . Personally, I'm thinking that the 16-35mm increased wide angle would be worth adding to my camera bag.
I just wish that Canon had made this lens a 12-32mm as it would have been a more useful range for a crop camera, given the 24-105mm. However, I understand that they also need to appeal to the FF crowd as they will sell more that way...
Talking about the 17-40 and the numerous reviews at fredmiranda. The best cons I have ever read about a lens is a comment on the 17-40"cons: Now I don't like my other lenses anymore" :-)soft corners have newer been an issue to me. I use the 5dmk3. on a 40D or any other crop, the soft corners are - cropped - so what is left is just top quality glass for a good price. But no IS though.
David,I own the 17-40 and the 24-105. And I can tell that the difference between 17 and 24 is bigger than expected. I also expect that the new 16-35 is expected to be at least as good as the older 17-40L.So my recommendation will be: yes if you are in "buy mode" this will probably be a good pick.brgØystein Bach
This proves the fact that the patent agency doesn't do their jobs. I simply don't understand how it is possible to get such a patent. I just wonder what the next will be.
This is quite good news. However, my experience is that long time storage that kills batteries like Li-ion or LiPo is perhaps more important than super quick charge.. OK, super quick charge a 200mAh battery is OK, it is just 24A charge current. Super quick charge a Tesla Car is simply impossible due to the high energy capacity.
Exceptional!A true winner! :-)
Et meget bra bilde! Gratulerer! :-)
Nice shot. Imagine this pic with a black background...
@RuthCYou are welcome any time! And yes, you are so right. A wonderful country, just like a post card :-)To all the others: Bring your camera and visit Norway.About the pictures: Norway is best in colors, for sure! :-)
A true winner!Shapes, lines, sharpness, colors, expo. Couldn't be done better.
HiWell the coffee isn't there, but the "damp ghost" will give you a cup well worth waiting for!
HiPicture was taken some time ago, and the subject was "steam" at that time.The flame-like blown out region is simply from the flash that was placed behind the cup. The flash was placed a few centimeters behind the cup.No coffee? The gost comeing out of the cup will give you a coffee you haven't tasted before! :-) Jokes aside, It wasn't allowed at the time the picture was taken. But I agreee, some visible coffee would make the picture even better. Next time!
