Re: FE 16-35mm f4 UW zoom

I'm not so sure, but I'd rather have a zoom with less reach that's a bit faster and have better IQ. Wouldn't something like 16-28 F3.5 or perhaps even F3 give better results and be easier to design? I think most people would buy this lens for the WA side and if you want to shoot at 35mm, the also announced 35mm 1.4 fast prime would be a far better choice anyway. I even wouldn't mind a 16-24mm lens if it would have some speed, like 2.8, then it would be usable for handheld indoor shots of churches or train stations and such. I think F4 is just way too slow,
