My 85 1.4 works perfectly fine with a 5d2

A metal scourer gets the baked on stains off when it gets really dirty

I have both the 24-70 ii and the 24 ii. I think the zoom has the edge (just) in IQ at 24. Remarkable lens and I'm finding myself using it along with my 17-40 (which feels just OK now in comparison).

I like the 24 ii for portraits etc and some specialist landscapes but I would always take the zooms for most landscape work now.

The more I shoot, the more I find zooms far more useful for landscape, anyway - reduce the need for cropping and the difference between 24 and 70 might be a couple of kilometres. With portrait primes, the difference between 50 and 85 might be a couple of metres....

Let's not beat around the bush. I'd like to see how it compares to the 24 TSii. I'd have to assume at that price, in context, it could give the Canon a reality check. Fingers crossed.

FINALLY some news on the Sammy TS. Serious price from them - hopefully it's good enough to live up to it.

For me, the only truly compelling reason is to weather seal the lens ( in most instances).

I Velcro strap my Cokin Z bag onto the side of my Crumpler camera (messenger / sling style) when I need them. Adds little bulk and works very effectively. I only strap them on when I'm likely to use them.

Lenses / Re: Considering the Zeiss 21

To my eye the 17-40 appeared a bit sharper in the centre with only marginal corner improvements found in the Zeiss 18. All my tests were at f8. I rarely shoot UWAs wider.

(And colour, contrast etc were not much different to my eyes).

As for the reference to corner sharpness in the 16-35 and by recognized extension, the 17-40, there is some general sponginess at F8 in the corners/edges vs the results I've seen from the TS lenses and the Zeiss 21.

I have two lenses covering this range already, the 24-105L and the 35L. But after reading all the reviews about how good and sharp it is, the small size, the low price etc I really want one. I might just have to get myself one soon.

Yeah, I don't think you'll be disappointed by the 40mm at all with this setup.  I may be a bit jaded having recently come off of using the incredible 24-70 ƒ/2.8 L II.

I know that feeling!

Just to close this out, some may find my findings useful... I came close to purchasing a Zeiss 18 but on close scrutiny I didn't see enough of an improvement on the 17-40. It was a good price but not good enough for a few nanowidgets of corner sharpness. The edges were nowhere as impressive as those of the Samyang 14 which are ludicrously bang-on.

So I'll keep my hard earneds for now. The 24-70ii is just so impressive, it makes other lenses in the wide range look average!!!

Oh you mean like the 35 1.4 which is a big ass dream contrary to the older 50 1.4 and 85 1.4 which just fuck up on every full frame?

Not on every full frame. My Sigma 85 works like a dream. AF is fine.

Nice image - and not much to fault really - but I must say I find photos of sunsets a little uninspiring. It's the things that the sunset is shining upon that make the more interesting subjects for me.
