.Just did a quick new comparison between the new Canon EF 16-35mm f/4 L IS USM lens (June 2014 release) to the Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM and the Canon EF 35mm f/2 IS USM. Why the Canon 35mm f/2? Because it’s the sharpest wide angle I own.

The 35mm is clearly much sharper on the borders and corners than both zooms. Comparing the zooms, center crops look about the same, but the corners are really improved on the 16-35 f4.

I posted cropped images and descriptions to my website:

Thank you for the good comparison. This is what I was waiting for. Finally a good super wide angle zoom from Canon.
