What to see the inside of Canon's new wide-angle lens?
Roger Cicala at LensRentals
has posted a lengthy, well-illustrated article detailing his teardown of Canon's EF 16-35mm f/4 L IS USM lens. Roger's Conclusions:
"Now that I’ve seen the insides I’m very optimistic that this lens will be less likely to deteriorate optically over time, and will be more easily corrected when it does. We won’t know for sure until we’ve got a year’s experience with it, of course, but from a design and assembly standpoint it looks really, really good.
I know I’m beginning to sound like a Fanboy, especially considering I hardly ever mount a wide-angle zoom on my camera. But I guess the corny old line from the Most Interesting Man in the World works. 'I don’t often shoot Canon wide angle zooms, but when I do, I prefer the 16-35 f/4 IS.'"
