Gotta love how the forward pots (which are very close to the camera) look as if you are pointing down and the rear ones are at a more normal perspective.

I am thinking about selling my 16-35 II to get the 14 II. I queried Aperture and 90% of my shots with the 16-35 were at 16 on my 5DmkII. I have also read that the 14 will have less distortion at the edges than the 16-35 which is something that always bothered me about the 16-35.
Anyone else make the choice between the 14 and the 16-35?

I have both the 14 II and the 16-35 II as well as the 17mm TSE.  As stated elsewhere in the forum, I love the 17 TSE.  For this type of landscape work I only use my 5D MK2.  I have some real questions about the 14mm.  I had to send the first one back because the focus was way wrong.  In addition the blue fringing was about as bad as I have ever seen on any lens.  The second copy had better focus but I had to enable the CA correction to 187 and also a +4 on the blue/green fringe manual correction on CS5 Adobe Raw and still I had blue fringe in the vertical direction that I could not correct - see upper branches on tree on right side.  Perhaps I find a use for it someday, but it will not be on wide landscapes on bright days.

Still don't understand why Photozone gives thsi lens a low(er) rating....
Canon shooter, but anything goes as ammunition (L, non L, Zeiss, Leica, Rokinon,Sigma)

Canon EF-14mm f/2.8 L
« Reply #26 on: April 21, 2012, 05:38:32 PM »
So I'm renting the EF-14mm f/2.8L for the weekend, maybe a bit longer. Going to be shooting at The Viper Room on Sunday night, but I was just out for a few minutes trying out the lens, heading out to test some more. This is a very, very wide lens, has some interesting stuff going on. First time posting images to the forum, so if it's crap or weird, sorry about that.

Just posting a few sample shots, full EXIF is in the images, but briefly:

5d3, processed in LR 4.1rc, NR at 18 (part of my default import), default LR sharpening (25, 1.0, 25, 0), WB at As Shot. To compare the LR corrected/uncorrected I simply checked the check box under Lens Correction, but I left the Remove CA box checked.

First image:
1/160, f/3.5, ISO 100

Second Image:
1/250, f/5, ISO 100
5D mark 2, 5D mark 3, EF 17-40mm f/4L,  EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM, EF 135mm f/2L, EF 85mm f/1.8
Film Cameras: Mamiya RB67, RB-50, RB-180-C, RB-90-C, RB-50, Perkeo I folder, Mamiya Six Folder (Pre-WWII model)

Also a big fan of this lens! Though I've only used the Mark II.

Yea, this is the mark2 that I rented. Here's a few more I shot this afternoon. This lens is really growing on me, even more than the 24 f/1.4 L. Definitely more challenging to use though.

1st one, despite LR correction, shows how you need to be careful of where you put people in the frame, and how they are angled across the frame.

2nd one is kinda an example of how to almost get some selective focus (sorta). If you get really close with this lens, you can get the good DoF, and when you have something that moves across that from the edges lets you do some cool stuff.

3rd is a pretty fun shot of a skateboarder flying over the railing. Now I just gotta find a skater I can trust and get really close to where he's doing tricks to get some crazy shots.

4th I processed the heck out of in LR, but thought it was still interested. The vignetting you sorta can see (if you look at it right) was not added in post, I just didn't do the lens correction. I tried a post-crop vignette, but just didn't come out the same.
5D mark 2, 5D mark 3, EF 17-40mm f/4L,  EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM, EF 135mm f/2L, EF 85mm f/1.8
