BTW Why does Canon feel the need to put "IS" in every NEW lens? why not a non 'IS" version at the price point of a 17-40 and discontinue that lens"


It is reasonable to ask whether IS is necessary in such a lens, but it certainly doesn't hurt a lens to have IS (aside from the higher price) and its addition does extend the usefulness of the lens when shooting handheld in low light in many situations.

Given the typical prices of L zooms these days, the $1200 list price seems pretty reasonable to me.

For those who prefer the 17-40, this is probably going to be a great time to find wonderful deals on used copies.

I would be interested in a comparison test of the effectiveness of IS handheld for strong wide (28 or wider) or ultrawide lenses against non-IS lenses of the same focal lengths at a range of shutter speed down to the point where even the IS is immediately obviously blurred at 8x12 print size.

I agree. As a release price it almost seems unbelievable.

Well for perhaps the first time in my life, I guessed correctly what Canon would do (re price).

Very happy with price of the efs lens also. I'll wait for reviews, but both of these look to be great new options.

Yes I hope Canon starts to price their lenses comparable to others. I know it's not apples to apples, but Fuji has the 10-24mm F4 R OIS for $1k. I would say some shooters like me that have selected to choose Fuji over Canon and like the $1k price tag on the 10-24mm. So I'm assuming Canon is pricing their lenses about the same for those Canon users.

I have a 6D, 135mm, 24-105mm, and 40mm along with my Fuji X-T1. I don't see investing into more Canon glass. The fuji works for me for my type of work, but I do miss the DOF that full frame gives you as opposed to an APS-C sensor.

I'm intrigued by this new 16-35, personally. At first, I shrugged it off, thinking Canon would price it way out of reach for me (i.e., $1700+). But, given the price tag, I'm seriously considering unloading my 17-40 and picking this guy up. I've been doing more video lately (still amateur, but working on it) and this would be great for that.

I'm not snarfing at the little EF-S lens either. Paired up with an SL1 and you've got quite the little wide-angle travel beast (stick the 40 STM in your pocket and it's a pretty well-rounded kit).

The Nikkor 16-35mm f4VR, directly comparable to the new canon in terms of zoom range, aperture, stabilization and AF motor, is currently sold at BH for $1,256.95.

Given canon's latest pricing strategy, I found this price ($1,199) a pleasant surprise.
I still thinks it's expensive for an f4 lens, but I will readily admit that I was expecting a higher price.

Even more unbelievable is that they actually include the lens hood for that price.
It's about time Canon!

Perhaps they have decided to change their new lens pricing policy.
Hope can only hope.

Maybe the likes of Sigma coming out with great lens offerings at a much cheaper price point is forcing Canon's hands to reduce their pricing strategies. In any case, competition is always good for the consumer.

Every single one of my lenses, both Canon and 3rd party have lens hoods.

Hopefully the new lens hood won't be as big as the 17-40!

The new UWA would be irresistible to me if it were 16-50/4L IS. As it is, I have a nice copy of the 16-35/2.8L II, so no rush to replace that lens with a slower one (unless I find it is more of a leap than the new 24-70/2.8L II was over the original, which I also resisted for now!).

What I really need is a new body, so I'm not spending resources on expensive lenses I already have adequately covered until I see how they perform on a 36+MP body.

The lens hoods on UWA lenses are almost useless for optical purposes, not even good for protecting front elements. I don't bother with them any more. As far as I can tell, the only reason to have them is to protect the resale value. OK, I'm having a bad morning, maybe another cup of coffee will help.

I agree. I use a filter unless I'm in a controlled situation with tripod.

This is a compact hood though -- a big improvement over the Frisbee that came with the 16-35s and 17-40s.

because it isn't a leap by much over a 17-40, IS isn't a need for many and is 'IS" worth the 40 percent extra in this F/L? don't think so,would you see a difference between this lens and a 16-35 f2.8 and or a 17-40f4? not enough for many.


Guess it depends on the person. After trying three of the 16-35/2.8 II and still not liking what I got from the third, I pretty much moved away from Canon for much of my wide angle work and ended up spending probably over 20x more than this new lens in the process. Not unhappy about the money, as I've added some really, really excellent glass to my kit. But I still shoot some things with the 16-35 - primarily events - and a good performer to the image edges would be useful for larger group shots, etc. For me, just the optical improvements over the previous generations of these lenses would be enough for me. The IS isn't necessary, but I could see it being useful for some situations... and perhaps also video as I get more into that. FWIW, I've found that with some of the really sharp UWA glass I've added to my other kit, I have to be pretty careful about technique to extract the maximum image quality from hand held shooting. Even with a 21mm lens I'll see shot to shot differences at around 1/125 if I'm being sloppy... IS would likely minimize such variations. As sensor resolution increases, this will only become more apparent, IMO.

I've often used a 17-40 as a walk around lens, adding IS to an f4 ultra wide is a big bonus, at least for me and for video it would be fantastic. Having this new zoom, the new 24-70 f4L and a 70-200 f4L, all with IS would make for a great lighter weight trio.

Many are waiting for the high-res/dr body, I'm just happy Canon continues to give us all more lens options. Glass, glass, glass...
