Well Ian, those are very inspirational for me and I simply have to break free of my natural surroundings (and projects in the home) and head into Edmonton where similar possibilities exist. 

Edmonton has some glass pyramids that house different temperate zones of vegetation and compatible smaller wildlife and that's on my list as is the museum etc., but I think I'm still in hibernation mode.  More photos would help get me out of that if you're so inclined!! ;)

Looking forward to the day this costs $2,500 with sales tax.

The lens arrived today and I was ready to take it out, when Tor decided it was time for a major shower. So here´s the first ever image shot with my new 11-24. Some motion blur, but a first is a first and no new lens without some shots of The Local Lion. He was his regular uncooperative self (fish helps). Getting this glass monster in his face (& food) didn´t help ...

Nice one - just watch out for the wet nose, which was the first thing I had to clean on my Sigma 12-24.  I learned from that and don't have any cat smears on my 11-24...well at least not yet :)

It's pouring down here as well, but I might actually get to use my lens more in the near future.  New pain medicines and I'm supposed to feel better in about a week.  Just in time for a quick trip to the beach.

You're going to love your new lens, in part for its versatility especially in tight places like canyons.

Congrats Eldar,
I don't see the points keeping 8-15/4L, 16-35 f4L IS. Others might disagree with me about this

Now that is something I can relate to!  Even my own family room was close to a grand canyon.  My daughter didn't initially recognize it when I sent her the shot. ;)  To me this lens is about FUN and opportunities for creativity.  It won't be easy to get truly great shots but it'll always be FUN.

I´ve been playing with the lens now and it is quite clear that this is wider than my current capabilities, so It will take time to master this one ... But it sure is fun!

Haha, what a little terror! Nice shot, Eldar. Enjoy the lens.  ;D

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.

Great photo! I think that any motion blur in the shot adds drama. It gives a taste of what the lens can do close up, and bokeh is not impossible

So should we stick to this thread for 11-24 sample shots/discussions, anyone?

Last year I got the widest rectilinear lens I have ever had, the Zeiss 15mm f2.8. I have never been a fan of UWA lenses, probably because I was unable to see what I should use them for. But during last summer I thought I got a number of good ones.

Today I took the 11-24 for a trip down to the fjord, locked at 11mm, trying to figure out what I can use it for. And honestly, so far, I don´t have a clue. It is just so wide that I seem to lack the ability to see when and where to use it. But I´ll take it as a challenge and from here, there is only one way ... (straight to the pub :))

Eldar, that looks like a nice start.  I'm not expert with the ultrawide, but when I was shooting at 12mm, it seemed like the best photos had a interesting foreground and/or made use of the leading lines.  Shooting this wide really emphasized the foreground, and really de-emphasizes the background, so keep that mind.  Also, it seems like shooting level shots works best - either completely level (all axes) or horizontally with a upward or downward tilt like you used above to dramatically emphasize the perspective lines.  Tall buildings, paths, roads, bridges, buildings, hallways, and decorated ceilings make great subjects.  It's definitely a challenge, but that's part of the fun of shooting crazy wide.

Of course you can always zoom out, but you didn't pay all this money to shoot at a mere 14-24mm, right :)
