Canon announces 16-35mm F4L and 10-18mm F4.5-5.6 lenses
Canon officially announced two new ultra wide angle lenses. The first is the full frame EF 16-35mm F4L IS USM lens and the other is the 10-18mm F4.5-5.6 IS STM model for APS-C sensor bodies (16-29mm equivalent).
The two lenses will be available next month for $1,199 and $299 respectively.

I for one am curious about this new lens on the horizon. Will this be the "sharp" alternative to the current 16-35? I have been using the 16-35 2.8L mark 1 for a while and could use a jolt of corner sharpness along the lines of the ZE 21.

I'm quite happy with the 16-35 personally, But I imagine video shooters would appreciate the IS.

Canon Rumors says that it will be announced within 12 hours. I assume there will be preliminary tests up soon after:

http://www.canonrumors.com/2014/05/images-of-the-new-ef-16-35-f4l-is-ef-s-10-18-f4-5-5-6-is-stm/

It looks like it is targeted to parallel the 24-70 IS 4.0. Maybe we will also see a 16-35 2.8 II non-IS?

It seems that all of teh newer lenses Canon have released are very good for their respective classes. I would assume this would also be a nice lens, esenntially to replace the 17-40 4.0. I have very rarely used my 17-40, so not something taht I will pursue soon, although it should be a nice lens for those building the 4.0 IS kit: 16-35, 24-70, 70-200 IS.

++++


It looks like there will also be an EF-S 10-18 IS STM 4.5-5.6 to complement the 18-135 MM IS STM & etc.

I would assume that it will sell around the same $350 price point as the 18-135 and 55-250 STM. It is a bit slow of course at 4 - 5.6. Hopefully it is as good as the other STM lenses have been for their price point.

I have no doubt an UWA f4 with IS is coming . if its optically decent it should be a very good option .
although I hope canon go sensible with the price . the 24-70/4 is silly money , although the street price has come down to much more sensible (but still a tad high ) money .

If the border and corner performance is noticeably better than the 2.8 II I am getting it. Then again, I am pretty sure a 14-24/2.8 will come this year as well and then I'll realize I made the wrong move.

Decisions decisions...

Interesting. Seems Canon is filling out it's parallel lines of fixed-aperture L zooms -- one f/2.8 and one f/4.

If the corner performance of the 16-35 f/4 is the same or better than the f/2.8 II version then count me in, especially if it's also cheaper. The 16-35 f/2.8 is good at f/4, but IS would be of more use to me at these focal lengths than speed. I'm less interested in a 14-24 because chances are it'll have a bulging front element (a pain for filters) and I've never really wanted to go wider than 16mm.

Pricing is gonna be interesting. The 24-70 f/4 IS is about a third cheaper than the f/2.8 version, but both are new lenses. I have a horrible feeling than the 16-35 f/4 IS will be priced about the same as the current f/2.8 (around $1600) and if/when the new f2.8 version comes it'll be over $2K. Canon lens prices seem to generally be heading for the stratosphere.

And if you really need to go to 14mm occasionally, you can just pick up a Samyang 14mm and you are all set.

If the Ef-s lens is as good as the little ef-m ultra wide it will be an intriguing little lens.

I am hoping both of these are good performers as I would consider ditching the 17-40 for the L if within reasonable price proximity (I'm guessing 1200).

$1200 would be a dream. It will be more than the 24-70 f4 IS.

Indeed. My guess is around the same price as the current 16-35 f/2.8, which is $1699. But I always dream of being pleasantly surprised

Got my combo for the same price as the 17-40L was going for at the time, importing the EF-M 11-22 from Canada (thanks guys!). Sharpest wide-angle zoom Canon makes, same size and weight as the kit lens, with a great build quality to match the EOS-M.

It's one of the reasons I'm hoping that Canon has a semi-pro EOS-M in the works that can stand toe-to-toe with the MFT and Alpha MILCs in performance, if not in image quality as well.

Yeah the Nikon 16-35 f/4 VR is around $1300 so that will give us a ball mark figure. Hopefully sanity will prevail and it drops to about $1K eventually. Yen has also weakened considerably in last 12 months, so it's about time we saw price drops across the board.

I'm interested in this lens as a replacement for my good, but not great 17-40. If it's sharper across the frame, then it would make sense to co-exist with the current 16-35ii, but if not, then it doesn't make sense that it would cost just as much.

To me it seems to make more sense for Canon to release a 14-24 f4 for landscape use and a 16-40 f2.8 for reportage.
This would differentiate the lenses more and also make a strong case that it serves it's purpose better than the Nikon versions. I suppose for astrophotography wider and faster is better, but isn't that a smaller sub-group of users?

Canon's pricing strategy:

Take existing "comparable"... 17-40L at $839...

Add 60% for redesign: $1175

Add $500 for IS: $1685

Round up to next "99" value: $1699

There we have it!

I need that 16-35 like a hole in the head.
Meanwhile there is still no new 100-400.

Would like to see a 16-35 2.8 III with IQ similar to the 24-70 II. IS would be nice but at that FL it's not critical and would only put it into the $3000 range for price.

Perhaps a touch better. But being UWA it has its own set of challenges to keep perfectly aligned, more than the 24-70 v.I.

I have had both of mine adjusted by Canon in the period of ownership. The 24-70 once, the 16-35 twice. When adjusted, both are pretty terrific and consistent throughout their range.
