Reviewing the Canon 16-35mm f/4 at Crescent Falls

A couple weeks ago, I got my hands on some new glass, which is always fun.  I picked up the Canon 16-35mm f/4 IS which is a super-wide angle lens for full frame cameras.  I needed something wide to go along with the 6D I bought.  And, to be honest, I did more research on the lens than I did the camera body, because I really value good glass, and there are a number of options that provide similar results.  I ended up going with the...
