Re: Sony A7 with Canon 16-35mm f2.8 or 17-40mm F4

Something else to consider are the Tokina 16-28mm f/2.8 and the 17-35mm f/4.  The former is better than either Canon L-glass you referenced, but it is quite heavy with a bulbous front element that will not take a filter easily.  The latter is more manageable in size/weight, can take a 82mm filter and is weather-sealed.  I can attest that the Tokina 17-36mm f/4 is built to a higher degree of burliness than my GF's EF 16-35mm f/2.8

The Tokina 17-35mm f/4 can be prone to purple CA at the edges in extreme DR conditions, which can be helped by stopping down to f/8.
