On the other hand, I am tempted by the 16-35 F4

It's not of the same quality as the 14-24 or 24-70; outside of the central square it is soft. Compared to 24 PC-E and 14-24 and both of them were much better than the 16-35, of which I tested two samples.


Excellent comments as usual.

Specifically on the 16-35, this is too bad because it is in a range where I would not mind an F4 max aperture and its range is more practical than the 14-24.

Considering that I am very picky about image quality, I might not like the IQ of the 16-35. (For example, I do not fancy the IQ of my 50G, I cannot put my finger on it but it just does not compare to the 24-70 or the 70-200 II)
