Visually Comparing the New Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L III USM Lens

A pair of new 16-35 f/2.8L III lenses arrived yesterday and they are of course receiving our highest priority right now (image quality results coming very soon). First up are the standard product images now available on the Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L III USM Lens page.
As shown in the lead image, the 16-35 f/2.8L III, shown immediately to the right of the Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM Lens, has obviously grown modestly larger than the II and has received noticeable aesthetic improvements. The next lens to the right, the Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS USM Lens, shows similar updates from the lens most-considered its predecessor, the Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM Lens. As shown in the image below, the oversized hoods of the older two lenses have been significantly reduced in size, a major improvement in my opinion.

Using the site’s Lens Product Images Comparison Tool, the new 16-35 L III can be visually compared to most other current and recently discontinued lenses. I have preloaded that link with a comparison you may find interesting.
