As for CPL's, here is my 145mm CPL on the 17TS-E, which I often shift stitch to an 11mm fov.
The CPL, as NWPhil says, can be used very effectively for water and shinny services, I use mine for controlling glare and reflections on swimming pools, granite worktops and bathrooms.
I strongly suspect Fotodiox will have an 11-24 version of the Wonderpana out pretty quickly.
wider than 16mm due to the way CPL's work.
CPLs don't work with skies only... nor this lens.
LOL!!! (Once again....What kind of hood do you have on that $3000 lens?). Funny post!
The attached is the "Dumb assed end"
I must admit I didn't research enough before I purchased, the Images from this Lens are 2nd to none among my ultra WA lenses, of which I own several, Canon 14f/2.8L II, Canon 8-15f/4, canon 17TSE, 14-24f/2.8 Nikon, Canon 15f/2.8.
With the exception of the 17TSE, all my WA lenses are purchased first for Underwater WA, secondary function, Landscape, but I sort of suck at Landscape.
I just couldn't imagine anyone handicapping a Lens by having a fixed Lens Hood like the Zeiss 15, in my view, "Dumb Assed".
And, after trying several Circular Polariser Filters it wasn't until I found the Heliopan Slim that I found a Polariser that didn't cause Vignetting, but that Heliopan cost $500 bucks.
So, amazingly sharp, beautiful contrast, smoothest Manual Focussing system I've experienced, but a dumb assed Lens Hood system.
Yes, as has been shown by others you can remove it, but after laying out 3k for a Lens anyone that brings a spanner or a screwdriver within 3 metres of this Lens while on my Camera, is a dead man, or women.
Personally, I'd start over with the 16-35 f4, a nifty fifty, the 100-400 ii, and a 600 ii.
If you're gonna keep what you've got, get the 500.
Just my $0.02
Is there an actual reason, other than shameless self promotion, that you are going round posting all these direct links to your blog?I added the 7DkII recently and found the increase in performance amazing. More in my Blog entry:Soory for the not working link...
What do You think?

You are making no further comment in the threads, you are inking to badly written misleading posts that you could just as easily leave here directly.
Ok, I do think we need a policy that requires reviewers to be certified and licensed in the state or province where they reside. Furthermore, such a license should not be issued to anybody who does not have at least an MA and an inspected, state-of-the-art lab.
Facetiousness aside, we get what we pay for in reviews.
And worse, paid influencers are all over the place, even on this website, alas.
To quote Mr. Monk, "It's a jungle out there."
Thankfully, AlanF and others are sharp enough and concerned enough to spot and report poorly executed tests and reviews.
