Re: Doubts about the 16-35

So, I think that I'll go with the 16-35 and 55 combo.

That is becoming popular with the A7R2 but from the samples I`ve seen of the 16-35 on the R2 from Liesayers posts, the edges are far worse at 16mm than the 24-70 (or my 24-70 anyway) at 24mm even at F4 . it didn`t look magnificent on the A7R either .. either Liesayer has a dud 16-35 or the lens isn`t what its cracked up to be

If you check the review at photozone.de they report a fair amount of field curvature at 16mm for this lens, that may be what you are seeing in Liesayers images. Its the long end at 35mm that the lens is weakest.
