We Have Received Our EF 11-24mm f/4L [CR3]
« on: Today at 05:46:21 PM »
We have received our Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L and we’re over the moon about it.

EF 11-24 f/4L dwarfs the EF 600 f/4L IS...... Yes, it's that big.

I’m heading out this weekend for some winter landscapes to try the lens out. I’ll also be using it at the end of March for 10 days shooting the Isles of Skye, Lewis & Harris in Scotland. After I’ve completed that photo tour, I should have a good amount of images and field work for a review.

I’ve shot 12mm on Leica before, but I’m hoping this goes a lot better than that experiment did.

Out of curiosity, what went wrong with the 12mm on Leica?

Performance, the lens isn't very good. Vignetting and that Leica colouration issue popped up. Framing was nearly impossible. It's tough to get dramatic images when you're guessing on composition. It was the easiest lens to focus thought. :)

I can't even imagine at guessing the framing with a lens that wide... I guess it was kind of like pulling the lever at a slot machine!

Congrats on the 11-24mm -- it seems like a beaut!

I just don't get the excitement over this as a landscape lens. Interiors, sure. Teeny tiny mountains in a flat wide vista, nope.

Nice use of the royal "we"! I hope the lens turns out to have an aristocratic pedigree. :)

Why do I hear the theme from 'Jaws' playing in the background?

That's the new F/0.04, right?
