Re: Pocket Lint what is your experience with the 16-35 2.8 III

Hi ffabrici,

I've only had this lens for a week, so I haven't had the time to thoroughly put it through its paces, but I can say that it is very sharp! Even at f2.8.

I think Canon developed an excellent wide angle zoom. For a general walkabout lens, this would make an astounding lens for that purpose I think. I use it for astrophotography, so I needed that faster aperture. I haven't tried the f/4 version but I heard that is a great lens too.

My only gripe, is that I wish this lens had IS. For $3000 I wish Canon gave it IS!

I just got in to photography and I love the artistic and technical aspect of it.
