Storm clouds building up over the Sierra Nevada. 5D mk3, 24 - 70 f4 IS ( yes, that one  ;)

It looks surreal, but it is, in fact, real !
Fantastic image Sporgon!  How are you liking the new lens?  I've been debating it... not sure about the f/4 if I end up with more inside event work... Renders beautiful in this image though!

Thanks Krob. You guys in the States are so lucky to have your big landscapes and amazing skys.
The 24-70 f4 is a very good lens, with one big problem: the price of the 24-105. The 24-70 feels more substantial and better made than the 24-105, but also shorter and more 'handy'. It has superior resolution especially at the wider end and is much better in the corners. We haven't had any rsa issues.

It comes down to whether  you're prepared to pay a lot more money for improved wider end performance and much better corners.

With regard to low light events a 2.8 lens will give a brighter viewfinder and possibly better AF, but I've generally found that 2.8 doesn't give enough DoF for most applications anyway. Bring on the 6D and its amazing high ISO performance !

Thanks Sporgon!  I may have to try out the new Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 with VC... it's looking very good and very tempting at that price point...

Thanks for taking the time to answer my question, I appreciate it!

I posted this one in a thread for the 10-22mm EF-S lens as well, but I felt it merited a showing in this thread too as I am very pleased with how f/3983 came out in the end. :) f/11 Camera setting + 17 stops of filters. :)

Not that is actually matters, but I can't help but be "that guy"...

17 stops down from f/11 (sqrt(2)^7) would be f/4096 (sqrt(2)^24)

 8)

Ahhh... I think found the error.  Did you use "11" for f/11 when it's actually ~11.3137 (sqrt(2)^7), and calculate from there?
Something along the lines of:
sqrt(2)^(log(11)/log(sqrt(2)+17) =~ 3982.4253
That's as close as I could get to your answer with plausible mistakes/rounding/whatever.
