11mm ???  On full frame, just how wide will the front element be ?

Sounds interesting, but definitely not at nearly 3k !

Now it's starting to be veeeeery interesting ;)
Reallly but really cope for at least 14-24 sharpness.

Thank you CR Admin you are giving as a great info !

if you think about canon's latest endeavors of ultra wides - they've been quietly dispelling any rumors that they can make sharp lenses - in any focal.

ts-e 17/24, 16-35/4, 10-22, 11-22, 8-15 have all been excellent lenses, especially when factoring in the economics of each lens.

the nikkor 14-24 is 2K .. extra 3mm wider? newer / better coatings? an extra 800? not that outlandish actually.

And it uses standard 137mm spherical front filters as well.

This is where I don't get why Canon would make this lens f/2.8 leading to a huge size & cost.  Action shooters are much more likely to use a fisheye instead of an 11mm lens, and I'm not seeing much bokeh this wide.  Also, with today's high ISO bodies, and lenses this wide, who can't handhold at 1/10-1/30s?  I thought that the f/4 aperture was the smartest decision Canon made with the 16-35 f/4 IS.  I love fast lenses and would kill for this proposed lens, but I just don't see the need for f/2.8 on this lens.

Then again, it's CR1, so we're probably just making fools of ourselves by discussing this ridiculous rumor.

It will be expensive, and it will probably be great. I just hope they keep the size and weight down, even if it has to be 12-24 or 14-24, or even 12-24 f/4L.

I decided not to "upgrade" my 16-35 2.8L II since at equivalent focal lengths, it is the same as the f/4L IS and yet it still goes to 2.8. But if this is a sharp 12-24 f/4L and no bigger or heavier than the 16-35, I may trade up to this. I have plenty of options covering 24-35 already, but nothing under 16.

11mm at f/2.8 and a subject distance of 4.7 feet = infinite depth of field from 2.38 feet onward, according to DOF Master.  So, one could handhold at shutter speeds greater than 1 second with f/2.8 after the sun sets and get everything in focus.  Sounds like a very specialized use...  ::)

This would be my dream lens.  I was saying earlier in the week how much I would love a 12mm F/2.8 but 11!?!

I do a lot of barmy artsy stuff at 12 - the 14 F/2.8L II just doesn't cut it - and I would love that extra mm.

And I actually would pay the (no-doubt) £2,800 that it will cost.  It's a lot of cash but ELEVEN?!?

Good God!  2800.00?  Must have added more Gold and Fluorite.  It's probably overpriced even at 1400.00

Wonder how well it will perform for astro... sounds delicious!

EDIT: Also, if we UTFS, previous rumors were about an 11-24 f/4, there's even been a patent filed for that ... I wonder which one we'll really get.

worth waiting for

Was debating the new 16-35 IS 4 to replace the 16-35 2.8II, but only for the IQ - I don't need the IS on an UWA. Now, I can think about having 11-70 mm covered with the same IQ as the 24-70 2.8 II. If my IQ wish is true, I will happily pay the price. Possible in 2015?
