I don't yet have a telephoto lens of my own for landscape shots. As everyone posts their shots, could you please post which lens you used and why you like it for landscapes vs anything else you may have tried?

Direct Link and only the 100-400 mk1 has the $200 rebate tied to it. The rest are $100 or less. Was hoping the 24-70 mk2 had a $200 on it.

I know the LR guys say wait to see more copies tested, but those initial numbers are a bit disappointing. Nothing like, as they say, the 400mm DO comparison or the years between the mk1 and mk2 24-70L.

I rented it from LR for next week and I've used the mk1 in the past. We'll see how it goes, especially with the new IS and non-pump design.

The bulbous front element of the UWA Tamrons preventing any filters is what stops me from picking one up. I have a 24-70L now that I love, but would be great to get a bit wider sometimes. I've used the 17-40L, but the vignetting is pretty bad wide open. f/4 isn't horribly bad, especially if you have a newer camera like a 5D3.

I started entering myself in Viewbug.com contests and joined for a year to get into more. The contests give me a mission to take a certain type of photo and whether or not I win the prize in the end, I may get a really nice photo or set of photos from the trip out. This has helped my lull lately.

So, according to the Chinese site, those were taken at f/8. I want to see what it looks like at f/4 before I start comparing it to the 17-40.

$1199 for the 16-35 f/4L ...good job Canon. Obviously I'll wait for some reviews and then for places like BuyDig and what not to drop it under or right at 1k if its a winner.

Awesome, thanks for the heads up! I finally picked it up to upgrade from LR 4.x. Wanted to wait a bit for them to work out the "new release bugs". I've been upgrading since 2 or 3, so I just grabbed this full box for $2 more.

The 50 1.4 has been $314 at Amazon for well over 2 months now. Not really "on sale" from B&H at that point.

Lenses / Re: 24-70mm lens. Which one?
« on: October 20, 2013, 08:50:53 PM »
What are you looking to do with it / what do you shoot? You should figure out what you love so much about the 17-55 first. If its the wide end, maybe look at a 17-40L ($849). It vignettes a bit on FF until you stop down to about f/8, but its an otherwise great lens and will save you half the cost of a 16-35L II, which only does marginally better in the vignette area.

One option you could go with is to buy the 6D and then use LensRentals.com or BorrowLenses.com or someone local and try out the various ones people suggest for far less $$ than outright buying and then not liking what you bought. That's how I go about it before I plunk down for a new lens these days.
