Here are some pics from the Robbie Williams concert last night here in Vienna

Wow, Robbie Williams is pretty huge in Vienna, it would seem. Thanks for the shots, very much contemplating this lens, probably have to get it from Canada, however, as they won't offer it in the US.

What did you use for adding GPS data to the photos?

I used the GP-E2 I have for my 5dDIII. Works nicely (when you look after the battery, I forgot this weekend ;) ).
If you set the time both cams by attaching the GP-E2 and synchronize then its easy to apply the GPS info for the other cam too using the Canon software provided...

Mine's shipped! Yes!

Looking forward to playing around with this thing.

The 16-35 on the 6D (my 1st foray into UWA) is quite good overall, but IQ in the extreme corners can be really bad sometimes, like someone smeared oil in that spot or something.

Could not resist and just ordered a 11-22 from Henry's in Canada.  $399 + $12.95 CAN will come out to just around $400 US.  Seems like a deal compared to the EF-S 10-22 or EF 17-40.  I loved my 10-22 back when I had only crop sensor bodies.  The IS should help make up for high f-stops in the applications I want to use it.

Looking forward to playing with this setup...

I really like the looks of what Canon is doing lately, REAL innovations (eg dual pixel AF in 70D, improved AF in EOS M, an IS ultra wide zoom - this 11-12mm).     ;)

The EOS M with 11-22mm would make a great IQ 'relatively small' / 'quite-portable' package for landscape (or architecture).    8)

One faint hope (though I very doubt it will happen  ::) ) is that the 7DmkII will have image stabilisation in the body... that way my Sigma 8-16mm would be even more wonderfully useful... boy I would love THAT lens to be stabilised....!

Thanks for the sample photos and user reviews through this thread, folks.

Regards

Paul
I'm not a brand-fanatic. What I do appreciate is using my 7D and 350D cameras along with a host of lenses & many accessories to capture quality photos, and share with friends.

I can't wait for the EOS M 2.  Hopefully it'll get some good flip screen just like the 70D.  It's one of those things that I want Canon to add to the M.

11-22 showed up today...wasn't able to test it outside of my apartment unfortunately but wow...first impressions are very strong indeed. Very impressive lens, really brings out the resolution of the M. I'm even inclined to say it seems to be a little better than the 18-55 but I have not compared like images side by side, so I can't vouch for this. But it definitely holds its own; we appear to be getting true [crop] DSLR quality out of this combo for sure. However, need to give it the true field test before drawing a final conclusion...

ETA: Another thing...the IS is doing its job...it helps to make up for the slow 4-5.6 aperture when you can get away with handholding 1/15 sec...

Will be great to shoot landscape at f5.6 to f8 in the evening without tripod ;)

Look forward to see some photos

1/15 only? At what FL? I am curious about this because you do not see IS on UWA every day, in Canonland, at least.

Took it out for a field test this evening...I think I prefer this more as a walkaround lens for the M than the 18-55...before, I found many instances where 18mm wasn't wide enough and I had to either back up or cut off part of what I wanted...and I'm not even much of a wide-angle shooter.

Oh yeah...did I mention the quality is DSLR-caliber? I have only the 6D/16-35 to compare it to, and while the 6D's FF sensor resolves more detail (in the center) from long distances, the corner performance of the M/11-22 is better. However, I find the M's RAW files to not be as flexible (e.g. more blown-out highlights) as the 6D's. But that's a camera issue, not the lens. The M/11-22 seems to have a little less distortion than the 6D/16-35. 16mm on the 6D, to me, is significantly wider than 11mm on the M. Besides the 2mm difference (11 crop=18 FF) I suppose part of it is having to hold the M out in front of you as opposed to holding a DSLR to your face.

As to which combo I prefer, I think there are pros and cons to both. But I felt I had more fun with the 6D/16-35 than I did with the M and 11-22. It is wider, the 6D RAW files can be "stretched" more, and, of course, nothing beats the ergonomics/operation of a DSLR. The only tradeoff is softer corners on landscape shots. For less than half the size/weight, however, you're getting 70-90% of the quality in the M/11-22 package (depends on your subject). Not bad, I say...

 I really think Canon needs to make this lens available in the US. It's a winner.

Snapshot of camera and lens - I'll see if I can work up the nerve/find the time to post any shots later.

Seems to be popular - out of stock at online Canadian retailers and Canon Canada e-store.  Wonder how many are crossing the border.
