I shot the Canon 16-35mm f/2.8L III extensively on my recent trip. It is an impressive lens, clearly Canon’s best effort yet, and on par with the Canon 11-24mm f/4L. At about $2199, it is expensive, but a very good value. The funny thing is that it delivers a far sharper image on 50 megapixels in the outer zones than I see a certain Leica zoom doing at 24 megapixels—no kidding.
While I never before was happy with the Canon 16-35mm f/2.8L I or II models, the 3rd time is the charm and it is up to the challenge of the 50 megapixel Canon 5DS R. Highly recommended.
I’ll be posting various material from the Canon 16-35mm f/2.8L III soon. I shot a lot of focus stacked images with it, and the results are astonishingly good in terms of achieving something close to 50 megapixels of detail.
See Gear for the Mountains; I am wearing one of the best clothing purchases I have ever made, the Western Mountaineering Flash XL along with an Ibexwear wool hoody and wool pants. This was one of the warmest days!
I’ll be presenting some images in both black and white and color, stacked or single frame. This is a single-frame image. It is mighty impressive, as will be seen in my presentation.
