Having a decent wide-angle lens can be quite beneficial for a variety of photography genres, and Canon shooters have a number of alternatives from which to pick, each with different picture quality and specification as well as a different pricing point. The great video comparison examines three such lenses: the RF 14-35mm f/4 L IS USM, the RF 15-35mm f/2.8 L IS USM, and the RF 16mm f/2.8 STM. The RF 14-35mm f/4 L IS USM is the focal length of the lens.
This excellent video review, which comes to you from Gordon Laing, compares the Canon RF 14-35mm f/4 L IS USM to the Canon RF 15-35mm f/2.8 L IS USM and the Canon RF 16mm f/2.8 STM. These three lenses, which range in price from $300 to $2,400, are suitable for a wide range of requirements and applications. In my opinion, if you are stuck choosing between the two zooms, the 14-35mm f/4 is the better choice, unless you really want that extra stop of aperture for things like astrophotography. Not only is it significantly smaller and more inexpensive, but the difference between 14mm and 15mm is not minor, and if you are a landscape or architectural photographer, you are sure to appreciate the extra reach at the wide end of the lens.
