6D + 24-70 f4 IS.

Shot on the Sussex coast at Adlebrough. A three frame stitch hand held, ISO 320.

Nice image.  I haven't seen much from the 24-70 f/4.  How do you like it?

Many thanks Click, Edward and Dustin.

The only thing that makes the 24-70 IS difficult to assess is the cheaper price and even cheaper availability of the 24-105. The 24-70 IS is the better lens, especially mid frame and in the corners; it is really prime quality most of the way, whereas when you take the average of the 24-105 across the frame it lags behind the primes. The lens is very compact, in practice significantly shorter than the 24-105, and the manual focus quality is a little better. The IS is meant to be more effective but I haven't enough evidence to come to a decision yet.

Reviewers of the lens have stated it is not as good at 50mm. We haven't found this.

In summary I would say if you want prime quality in a zoom but also need IS get the 24-70 f4L IS.

Here's a picture of the pool at Flatford Mill and 'Willie Lott's cottage made famous throughout the world by the most famous of English landscape artists John Constable with his "The Haywain" oil painting finished in 1821. Now owned by The National Trust the area has been preserved pretty well since then, but the pool is deeper now because the Eastern part of England has sunk one foot lower over the last two hundred years !

Shot with the 6D and 24-70 f4L IS @ 50mm. I'll put an example of this lens at 50mm @ 100% in the 24-70 IS image gallery.

Nice shot and I like the wide horizontal aspect!  However, such a small sample does not do anything to prove the 24-70 f/4 is better than the 24-105.  I know it's probably technically better as you say, but it also has less zoom range, and costs more.  I love being able to zoom from 24-105...For similar money, most people would probably by the Tamron 24-70 f/2.8, it has stabilization also...and is the only f/2.8 full frame wide zoom that currently has it.

Thanks Dustin , Carl. We were lucky with the light. I'm sure Constable would have approved.

Carl, you are quite right. No picture on here would show any difference between any lenses in sharpness, unless showing 100% crops. I will put one on the 24-70 IS gallery. The Hay Wain picture is a four frame stitch, hence the format. When we are stitching in this way I can assure you there would be absolutely no difference between the 24-105 and the  24-70 IS in the end result. In fact when used in this way the 24-105 is as good as anything.

Oh I was talking about the "willie lotts cottage".  I didn't notice a wide pano shot.  Not all the images load in my browser sometimes.

Very nice shot jerome2710.
Nicely done!
Thank you both!

Here's another one.



Any tips and/or criticisms are always welcome!

I like this, but are they a wild species in Florida?

These pictures from The Holy Land have all been beautiful and fascinating Dustin. It seems like you are having an amazing visit. I agree in the marvel of thousands of years worth of layers in civilisations, especially as you are standing where the birth of christianity took place.

Oh I was talking about the "willie lotts cottage".  I didn't notice a wide pano shot.  Not all the images load in my browser sometimes.

Sorry I meant Willie Lott's Cottage. I keep referring to it as the 'Hay Wain' as that was Constables most famous picture when he painted horses and cart ( Hay Wain ) in it.

The picture is a four frame panoramic with overlap, so effectively shot on a larger format than most DMF; it's 36 x 75 mm @ 60 mp, whereas say a Pentax 645D is (about) 30 x 44 mm @ 40mp. So it is a very wide angle shot but looks natural because of the way we have done it. To shoot this on a single frame with FF you would have to use a 20mm lens and crop out the top and bottom to give the 2x1 aspect ratio. I've attached it again so how it doesn't look like a 20mm shot.

By using the FF to create a larger format we gain nearly all the benefits of the MF; resolution, tonality, colour depth etc. I'm not sure if we gain in DR due to lower enlargement, I don't think we do.

The drawback is that it is a pain in the a**e to do compared with a single frame.

It's nice work, no doubt about it!  The reason it's a pain in the butt to do, is because technically, it's not a larger format...it's several images that are panned, and stitched...as you know.

I recently scanned and edited one of my Mom's old 120 film negatives, and it was about 60mm x 90mm!  However, the resolution was not all that high.  We scanned it at 2400 dpi, and still this was finer resolution than what was actually on the negative.  The optics may have been partly to blame...also the negative was shot in 1979, and appeared to have been processed incorrectly, besides being faded over time.  I spent quite a few hours editing it; there were probably a couple of hundred different adjustment brushes alone, besides other effects.  The end result was far inferior to what my 6D and modern lenses can do.

I must admin that I'm not an wildlife/animal expert, but I thought it was just an green iguana?

And indeed, it was spotted wild in the Key West.

Thanks, guys.  This one has had a lot of run in the three places I've shared it.
