Wasn't sure about the most appropriate place to post this, but I hope this will do for now.
Here are a two shots (and some cropped parts) taken with the new EF 11-24 mm f/4L attached to a pre-production 5Ds R. I'm not going to translate the article by Magnus Fröderberg, because I'm sure you just want to look at the photos.

Shots were taken two days ago in London. -> http://www.fotosidan.se/cldoc/canon-ef-11-24-mm-f.htm

Thanks, she is a noted photographer, so she is getting close to the best the lens / camera can do under the lighting conditions.

There were no visible ca's in all those branches, which was a little suprising, even in the soft light, there is usually some visible.

Only time and a lot more photos from many different photographers will tell us just how good the combination will be.  Its very difficult to get a super high mp camera to actually produce the sharpness that the sensor can deliver.  Canon seems to recognize this with the new selection of shutter delays and stronger body.

Magnus is a he, but apart from that: Yeah.
On that same page, is another article about the bodies, which among other things mention the re-enforced bottom plate, and shows the customizable Q-screen.

@Mackguyver:
Good finding those example shots, Mackguyver!
They make me think that the lens has been ready for quite some time (all taken in July last year), but Canon has been holding back the release until the pixel-beasts - 5Ds & 5Ds R - got ready.
For pixel peepers it's possible to see some flaws in the far corners, and we don't have all too many examples at f/4, but I love the FOV and think it will be a marvellous piece in the right hands.

@Viggo:
Gott, Viggo! Du kan finna mycket läsvärt på Fotosidan. De har hög trovärdighet, och mycket duktiga fotografer som journalister och testare.
Quick sloppy transl. for the rest of you: Possible to find plenty articles on Fotosidan worth reading. They have high credibility, and some very experienced photographers writing and testing for the articles.

More samples:
http://www.amateurphotographer.co.uk/sample_images/canon-ef-11-24mm-f4l-usm-sample-image-gallery-44106

EDIT: Some expected and strange results here.  Vignetting wide open at f/4 & 11mm. Very sharp stopped down, except maybe the extreme corners.  However, the opening shot has considerable CA.  It was shot at f/22, is focused on the grass in the foreground, and is of a very high contrast scene, but there's little to no CA in the other shots, so this is odd.

First few shots from this evening. All with 5D3 and at 11mm; way too much fun at 11mm to try anything else just yet. Will provide some writeup and first impressions tomorrow. Let me know if there are any questions I can answer.

My lens is still in the warehouse apparently, but thank you for posting. Actually, no thank you, your shots are way too good!  Now I'm going to be way too embarrassed to post to this thread ;D  Those cathedral shots are amazing!  The horse shot is funny, too.  Great work for your first outing.

That shot of the horse ;D

Things can get a little funny when up close but it's okay to horse around a bit I guess. No pun intended. Looking thru the viewfinder he still appeared to be at a distance, but on putting the camera down I realized he was practically right in my face. LOL don't remember the last time I laughed like that on taking a picture.

The wait is going to be well worth it! Looking forward to your images. I posted some initial impressions in this thread http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=25316.0

I have updated the gallery with a few photos from the past couple of days. Hopefully it's representational of the architectural and landscape capabilities of the lens.

Thanks!  Some very nice shots.

This is far from a fisheye, but those who are saying "almost no distortion" are looking at different photos.  I think you, param, are controlling it well with proper framing, but other photographers are showing some uGly perSpeCtiVes.
