All these posts have lots of info, but as they go far back, it's difficult to say if anything's been tested for 4K.

I've went back and forth on this but after extensive testing with 4K downloads by way of sliding the lens in and out, I've gone back to leaving the lens in and scaling 4K. I see no resolution benefit, only the increase in light with the lens not in the light path on 16x9 compared to lens in and 16x9 scaled. Light is no longer an issue for me even with 3D due to the good light output at max zoom with my X500. I'm even more amazed by the 3L's transparency now. With the way things are appearing to play out this lens is going to be in my system for a long time to come.
