Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS Review (and video)

Dustin Abbott reviewed the new Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS lens, and it’s once more an enthusiastic review of this lens.

In the conclusion he writes:

This lens is good…really, really good. It is so competent that you have to stretch to find criticisms. What is even more true is that this lens is going to serve hundreds of thousands of photographers around the world very, very well. I added a number of fantastic images to my portfolio during the review period, and I would have no hesitation to add this lens to my own kit as the primary wide angle option. If you are in the market for a new landscape lens, look no further. If you feel you need the f/2.8 aperture for event work or some other purpose, the EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM may still be the better lens for you [...]. Many photographers have already embraced Canon’s newest wide angle zoom and have discovered that the EF 16-35mm f/4L IS is the lens they have been looking for from Canon for a long time!

This is an exhaustive review with many samples, covering a lot of details of the EF 16-35mm f/4L IS. See here all the 16-35mm f/4L IS reviews featured on Canon Watch, they are all very, very positive.

Interview With Canon At Photokina 2014 (EOSHD)

Photokina 2014

The folks at EOSHD interviewed Jörg Ammon and John Morris of Canon Europe. The interview touches different topics, from the EOS 7D Mark II to Magic Lantern.

Some excerpts:

[does the 7D Mark II have] the same sensor as the 70D?

It’s not exactly the same, same technology but a little refined.

[asked about 4K video, Jörg Ammon from Canon Germany says]

For most people 4K isn’t the right thing because all the surrounding equipment isn’t fit for 4K. If you edit full HD on your own PC or laptop it needs a lot of time, and it will take 4x more to edit 4K material.

There’s a way to get better quality from the Canon cameras, and that’s to install Magic Lantern. It gives you a lovely image, with raw video. Isn’t that something Canon should support?

Jorg Amonn: We can’t say anything on the Magic Lantern side! Tricky subject.

John Morris: There’s no guarantee on it, and no manufacturer will support a third party firmware update.

There is more in the interview with EOSHD

Photokina 2014
