I just received my new Canon 16-35 f/4 minutes ago. I also own the old 16-35 f/2.8 version 1 and the 24-70 f/2.8L II. I shot a quickie test at f/4 at 16mm, 24mm and 35mm.

Initial impression is that the new 16-35 f/4 blows the old 16-35 f/2.8 version 1 out of the water and, here's the kicker, it appears to be similar in quality to the awesome 24-70 f/2.8L II! Even out of focus highlights appear much crisper and better defined at f/4 as compared to version 1.

I'll post some pics when I can do a slightly more rigorous test and won't be flamed by trolls and nit-pickers.

Looking forward to that.
