Here are some sample photos from the second version of Canon's excellent 16-35mm lens. This is my most used lens, as I like the versatility of having decent wide angle and close to 50mm focal length with a crop factor of 1.3. The first two photos have been taken with an EOS 40D and the rest with an EOS 1D MK II.


Really nice set of pics, I enjoyed seeing the pics from my local stomping ground Asakusa and Ueno park at the wide angle as well.

Here are a couple of my shots with this lens:


Beautiful pics, really like the second one, a real feel of Asia about it...hope I've not put my foot in it and it's actually a temple elsewhere :-\

Few 16-35 II sample images with 40D


Great live music and travel shots. Really like the composition on the last two, really cool travel images I could imagine seeing in a guidebook.

Just got this lens about a week ago.  Presently using it with a EOS 7D.  Hoping at some point to acquire the 5D MKiii if and when it arrives and exploit this lens further

Taken at F8, 1/60th, ISO 100, 33mm, HDR processed with -2,0,+2 bracketing, Aperture Priority

Thanks

Great shot and processing. Looks like a painting

What software do you use to process the HDR files?

LOVE the 16-35.  Would have to say that it's my go-to lens, though my new version seems to be way more contrasty its predecessor (which found an untimely demise after jumping off a fishing boat. Lenses, no matter how good, can't swim).

Hello Candyman - I used Photomatix though I am careful with the settings and try a variety until I get the effect I am seeking such as vertical / horizontal alignment, reduce ghosting, foliage etc.  Prior to completion there are other settings for tweaking such as Microcontrast.  Even flipping through low,medium, high and maximum can make a world of difference within the lighting section.

Thanks JR and Candyman for the kind words...Rev

I like the second image alot more revup, maybe its the monochrome

I rarely use photomatix these days but every once in a while i got back to it to play around
I have found that avoiding the temptation to push the strength slider too high has a big impact on how real the scene looks. I try to stay below strength 70

I also find night shots and urban shots can sustain higher strength values before they get to oh my god my eyes are bleeding levels.

I find photomatix automatically oversaturates and outright alters the colours and there is nothing you can do about it. Its too hard to fix this un natural colour shifting afterwards

This is the one lens I want more than any other.

The moving sidewalk picture was really awesome!

I do agree with you.  After I am done tweaking in Photmatix, I give it another overhaul in ACDSee Pro 3.  correcting pretty much whatever needs to be done.  Thanks for the link, off to work but will have a peek soon.
