I think this lens is the best value for money for a fast wide zoom.

I tried it on Hassy X1DII, and I really like it.
I like it so much that I think I want another camera body like R6 or R5 to use it and 85/1.2L II on them.

Hey that's Stone Mountain Park - close to where I live.

And yes I agree, it's a terrific performer on any body (if you don't mind adapters on the R series)

Correct me if I am wrong but I have had the impression that the 16-35L... is sharper than the RF 15-35/2.8.

Too much was sacrificed to add 15mm and IS onto the RF variant

Depending on what you shoot, the ability to use a drop-in filter adapter could be considered an advantage.

They are very close. At some focal lengths, the RF is slightly better and at others the EF is slightly better. Overall, not much to pick at in terms of sharpness - especially if you're stopping down at all.

Could save even more by using the 16-35 f/4 IS for landscape shots such as those shown. Plus you get lens IS + IBIS and remove a little weight out of your bag. I've got to get mine listed for sale one of these days as I've switched over to the RF 14-35 now.

I'm rising here for a business trip.
I don't mind using an adapter as long as it works properly.
I used an adapter for these snaps on Hasselblad X1DII.

I thought about the F4 version also, but after reading this review which said that the f/2.8 III version works better on X1D camera, I opted for the used F2.8 III version.

Paul, you are correct the 16-35 2.8 works better on the medium format cameras as opposed to the f4 version. I tried them both side by side on my GFX 100s and the difference was noticeable.
I ended up with the 16-35 2.8 III for my 100s and liked it so much I bought the fringer adapter for Nikon. Now it serves as
my wide angle on the Z9 as well as the 100s. It is one of my all around favorite lens.

Oh, and it produces really nice sun star

I like everything about the lens.
However, Iím having a little problem for using it with Lee filter system.
I thought I was able to use it without hard vignette from about 19-20mm, but I I need to go up to 24-35mm.

Iím not sure what Iím doing wrong.
