I like how you composed this pic ... the arched trees, behind the little bridge, look like another bridge giving it a unique depth to the image ... I would've cloned out the branch which is sticking out in the foreground, regardless it is a very beautiful image.

Thank you for your comments.  I never really thought of removing the branch from the foreground.  It's worth giving it a try.

Sure you get looks holding a white telephoto lens but think of the alternative.  If you were holding a large black lens such as the sigma 800mm, would it not look like some type of weapon from a distance?

And of course if you use it like the guy below then people are sure to run.  :o

Hmmm...  Buy a new car or this lens.  Cant decide.  I think I will wait for the 100-400L

Thanks so far on your insights.  What I am reading here pretty much imitates what I am reading on reviews.  The Tokina being sharper, yet more prone to flare.

A Canon 14-24 would be sweet.  I guess I shouldn't hold my breath for that one.

Thanks killswitch for the tip on a filter holder system.  I may look into that if I decide to get the Tokina.

The other lenses I have are Canon 24-105 L, MP-E 65, 100 2.8, Canon EF 100 2.8, Canon 70-300 L, Sigma 150-500

So I am looking for something below 24mm.  Below 20mm would be ideal.

So yet another wide lens question. Sorry.  I am looking for an ultra wide lens for my Canon 6D.  I have narrowed it down to two lenses of interest.  The Tokina 16-28 F2.8 PRO FX and the Canon 16-35 F2.8L II.  Please do not recommend a fish eye lens.

First thing, I know there is a  big price difference.  Canon being more expensive.  This is one thing effecting my decision. 

I have heard some positive things on the Tokina lens and wish to hear from anyone who has this lens or has used it.  Is it optically better than the Canon?  Any flare?  How is sharpness?  I am also aware the Tokina  has a bulbous front element that prevents filters from being used. I suppose I can live with this.  I mainly want to use this lens for landscape, street shots at night and even photograph the night sky.
I realize there are other lenses like the Canon 17-40 L but that is an F4.  If I am doing any night photography an F2.8 would be better.  Correct?

So. The Canon 16-35 L II or the Tokina 16-35 F2.8 PRO FX?

A thread of 6D sample photos was started 4 months ago.
