Here is another from the same spot but 16mm this time, I must say I was worried about letting the 16-35 f4 IS go as it is such an amazingly good lens, but the 11-24 is inspirational, a true classic lens.

16mm f9 very limited processing.
Too often we lose sight of the fact that photography is about capturing light, if we have the ability to take control of that light then we grow exponentially as photographers. More often than not the image is not about lens speed, sensor size, MP's or AF, it is about the light.

Nice work Scott, especially the first one. As I have stated earlier in this thread, this lens is getting under my skin and I am actively seeking ways of using it.

Last year I took a big step and got the Zeiss 15mm. I had never shot anything this wide before and it was a true challenge. My previous preference was actually to not go wider than 24mm. But (after a while) I loved the 15mm and it became one of my most used lenses. This year I got the 11-24 and (initially) thought that this would be a dust collector. But experience so far is that it is the 16-35 f4L IS and the Zeiss that has been collecting dust. I miss the ability to use regular filters, but it is less and less of a problem.

Next month I'm going on a 10 day safari in Mana Pools in Zimbabwe and I have to make decisions on what to bring, since I cannot bring everything. At the wide end, I have not yet made up my mind if I bring the 16-35 or the 11-24 ...

My pic taken with 5D MK III and 11-24mm f/4

I love that the 11-24 can make this shot "new".  I have seen many a shot of this location but having not been there myself I see it in a new light at 11m.

Where have all the attached images gone? Something to do with yesterdays 'maintenance' down period maybe.

Anyway, here is an 11mm shot.

Love this photo.

I just returned from a trip to Israel and used the 16-35 a lot. Especially in the open landscape of the Negev. I shot panoramas as well. I wonder what I could have done with a 11-24 in the open landscape. How much more would it helped me to get some specific shots.
It certainly shows here in this thread that the wide of 11mm has some benifits.
I wonder, does anyone of you use 11mm and then crop?

Hi there candyman, I use 11mm and crop, I have found it very useful for framing loose to allow for the inevitable lens corrections and straighten and level that always seemed to cost me too much fov.

Also the extreme fov also allows for the lens to be used as an effective shift lens with better edge characteristics than the TS-E17 when shifted. For example the image here http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=24975.msg529051#msg529051 was shot at 13mm but framed in the top left hand corner with the camera close to level with the intention to crop, this kept the flagpole vertical and gave me the framing I wanted, the shifted 17 is not as nice in the corners, though it does have other advantages.

Here is one from last night, small town USA. 24mm, f13, 60sec, 100iso. This lens handles light sources in the frame very well.

Another from small town USA.

I went out to do some architecture but happened across this scene and thought I'd see how my old 1600 max iso would do.

I keep saying it but the way this lens handles flare from lights in the fov is amazing, lights just out of frame can be problematic, but in frame it is just brilliant.

16mm, f4, 1/60 sec, 1600 iso.
