My Nikon 16-35 f4 is not what I had hoped for!

Jeeez....

Seems like a few people here are posting multiple threads trying to dismiss this lens. Very scientific test shots of a camera store and brick walls. 2 subjects of which I don't frequently shoot. In everyday shooting it is a phenominal lens. I did a wedding yesterday and it performed beyond my expectations. Fast to focus, accurate, sharp and VR was extremely useful. 16 mm will distort. There are few that don't. Vignetting is minmal at best and better wide open than the 17-35. And I have no colour cast/shift issues. This may not be the best brick wall oriented lens, but for just about everything else it's thoroughly competent and desirable. This lens has been picked apart like I've never seen before and if I were shopping for one, I would have been persuaded against it based on the many comments of a few. Bottom line is that most people will be extremely happy with this lens.
