Okay, onto some others.  Nothing great, but horse eventing isn't exactly a place where you can get close to anything:

And another, well composite of many others at 20mm, a little more creative:


Hopefully I'll have a chance to shoot more conventional stuff soon.

I really like this one mackguyver. 11-24 seems to be a MUST have lens now.

For architecture/real estate, it promises to be a real winner, though, and for some landscapes, and certain other types of work (editorial, fashion, etc.), it opens up a world of creativity.

Exactly what I am planning. I currently use the 17TS-E for the hero shots and 16-35 f4L when I need to move fast around a property. It looks like the 11-24 and the 24-70 LII would be a two lens , two camera setup that makes quick work of my shoot. Only occasionally do I need to stitch the 17 and even then I don't go to extremes.

The 11-24 seems affordable if I sell my 17TS-E, the 16-35 and one of my children.  ;)

I received my copy late last week and I am loving this lens.  I also have a 16-35/4 and a TS-E 17 and have no plans to sell them - they are really all different lenses intended for very different purposes.  Here are a few of my first shots with the 11-24.

After quite a few lens comparisons it sure looks like the 11-24 excels in the corners.  I think it's fair to say you're getting something special for the money.  :)

Animated GIF version of the sequence shot of the "Goliath Gap" obstacle - wait for it to load...



I wish I'd used a remote release, but I had no intention of animating it.  These are so easy and fun with the 1D X - I think I'm going to have make more of them!

mackguyver, that is very interesting and worth knowing how.  I assume if you're on tripod and can get enough FPS with the full wide angle then there is some trick to assembling them into animation - care to comment?

Here's what my lens was up to a couple of hours ago.  Does this look like it's performing.  I see pretty significant vignetting but what else might I look for?

Throwing in something I remember seeing on Flickr, to inspire Mackguyver and JackDouglas:
If my memory serves me well, Lotus Carroll (on Twitter as @LotusCarroll, and here is a "About" page -> http://sarcasticmom.com/about-2/ ) had uploaded a quick series of shots of her child and had it made into a short animation. She might have a few other ideas on how to do something similar.

Jack, the dappled light and perspective of the road work well and with regards to the vignetting, it seems to all but disappear around f/8.

Here are some resources on creating animated GIFs from burst shot sequences - and while I know you have a 1D4, for others that are interested, you don't need 10-12 FPS to do one.  Even a burst of JPEGs out of a Rebel at 3 or 4 FPS would work if you can get 10+ frames.

The first step - not really described below - is to load in all the files.  You go to File>Scripts>Load Files into Stacks.  For some reason, they load backwards, so later on you'll need to reverse them using that option in the Timeline menu on the upper right side of the timeline.  You'll want to Loop the animation and you'll also want to select all of the frames and add a delay (0.1s recommended for most stuff) or it will play once and way too fast.

Thanks DominoDude and mackguyver.  I'm retired and still I can't find time to keep on top of all this, but I'm trying. 

I'm more confident than ever that I won't regret getting the 11-24 and I'll gladly live with the weight although I have to learn to be more careful carrying it.

Last year I was in a tight canyon where 24mm was far from adequate given the various constraints and I remember saying, when will Canon's WA be coming and now it's up to me to produce!

bgateb, that was a lot of effort and well done.  Thanks for that.  Like everyone else, I get caught up in the minutia of the lens performance and clearly it's more capable than me, but I'll be striving knowing that there are no excuses!

Well here's a photo but it's just my frozen slew where my bird shots are taken in spring/summer/fall.

Brrrr, looks cold.  Here are my latest shots - still trying to find a good subject for the 11mm end, but these are all at 11mm:

Water taxi ramp beside the Friendship Fountain (colored green for St. Patrick's Day) in Jacksonville, FL - 11mm f/16, 25s, ISO 400, -2:


View of Jacksonville's Southbank as seen from the 16th floor of the Jacksonville Hyatt Regency Riverfront Hotel - 11mm f/14, 20s, ISO 400, -2:


Notes:
You can see the Friendship Fountain in the second photo as well (it's in the center).

Also, given the numerous point light sources, flare was minimal, but if you look at the water in the center of the photo, there appears to be something in the water.  That's actually a set of tiny rainbows about 5-10 pixels in length as you can see below.  It would be very easy to retouch these out.
