Thanks MaxPower for the opportunity to play. Your 100-400L seems to be a very good copy.

For this one I liked to crop to portrait.

IMHO the WB is off slightly and the natural color of the animal should be warmed up to be accurate. Not that I disagree with artistic license. I just prefer the animal to be rendered more realistically in this case. Also, I do like both the close up crop and the wider crop versions. I think it looks good both ways.

I find it interesting to see everyone's personal take on things and it is evident that tastes vary so enjoy the variety!

OK, my attempt

Right handed but left eye dominant. Does that make me a freak?

Take focal with a grain of salt. I have two bodies a mark ii and mark iii 5d. I went through all of my lenses and noticed a pattern of 2 afma between the bodies. So i expected that difference between all the lenses. It worked on the 70-200 ii, the 85mm ii, the 24mm ii. It did not work well on the 50mm L or the 16-35 mm ii. For those lenses i used a moire pattern chart with zooming in. That technique worked and produced again the expected 2 afma difference between the bodies. I spent a lot of time and care on the focal setups but for some lenses it did not work properly.

I guess naming anything Canon 3D without actual 3D pictures would be very confusing.

As for photojournalists, many of them that are using 16-35's are still shooting 1D MkIII and MkIV's, the 16-35 works very well in the pack on a 1.3 crop camera, the 14-24 would not be anywhere near as attractive, that is why Nikon still offer a 17-35 f2.8 as well as the 14-24.

Why would I get one? Well yes the zoom is nice but it wouldn't replace my 16-35, however the Canon 14mm, well the two I have shot with, one a loaner via CPS and one from LensRentals, were both crap in the corners. I do some high end real estate work and currently use the 17mm TS-E for most of it, but when I want wider and not stitch then I have found the 15mm fisheye defished is better in the corners than the 14mm L prime, and it gives a wider field of view.

After CPS adjustment, my 14L is very good to excellent

To everyone saying they would buy this lens immediately, I have to ask, and I'm not is the current 14mm L lens letting you down? Is the ability to zoom from 14-24 that killer of a feature?

I am loving my 14mm L. I have done amazing landscapes with it. I really don't know if the 14-24 would be attractive. If it turns out killer perhaps I might consider parting with the 14L and 24L. But I really dont think so. For me I think the primes will complete my needs for landscape.

I have done landscape both with 7d and 5d using the same scene. No comparison. FF is miles ahead.

Sigma will want you to believe this lens is future proof. They allow a USB connection to update the firmware for new third party body compatability.

Why should we act fast?

EOS Bodies / Re: Why are flash sync shutter speeds getting worse?

I may be wrong, but with High Speed Sync on a flash, max sync shutter speed becomes less relevant.
