Re: Adam-T lens review page?

merciless review. I mention that the 16-35L is my softest, most
expensive lens.

Mine too (in the "work" lenses) - except that I don't have the excuse of it being the only Zoom ..

I'm not sure if it's ever capable of critically sharp images (

It's a wierd lens which you have to learn, it's definately NOT point and shoot like the 28-70 and 80-200Ls which are virtually faultless no matter what aperture or focal length you use .. I thought my 16-35 was soft on the left side, but other shots are soft on the right depending on the angle of view and scenery (even down to f5.6 - I don't remember a time when this lens got down to F8 or lower), so even at relatively slow apertures you have to be real careful about DOF (I figured this is why you shoot your 'scapes at F11).. To ME it's the best of a very bad bunch (UWA Zooms) rather than a holy grail like the 28-70 or 80-200 ..

Best of luck with the page.
