Smokes the 16-35?

This a comment for this page on the website
When I do a compare between the 17-40 & 16-35 (measurement, sharpness, field map), it looks like the 17-40 is far better...?

Are both stopped down to the same aperture?

Hello,

Thanks for you question, In fact we did a short comparison in our review 16-35mm vs 17-40mm : http://www.dxomark.com/Reviews/Canon-EF-17-40mm-f-4L-USM-lens-review-Popular-high-performance-option/Canon-EF-17-40mm-f-4L-USM-versus-Canon-EF-16-35mm-f-2.8L-II-USM
The Canon 17-40mm f/4 is more homogenous in the field but the Canon 16-35mm f/2.8 is brighter. So these 2 differences leads to a close DxOMark score (which is a score computed for lowlight condition).

Best regards,

The DxOMark team
