I have been out walking with this lens a couple of times now and my initial conclusion still stands; At 11mm, this is the most challenging focal length I have ever used. Over time I will use it at the entire zoom range, but for now I have locked it on 11mm, since I´m already covered from 15mm and up. If I can´t make any use of the 11-14mm range, I may as well use the much more convenient 16-35.
I have read loads of raving reviews and comments about this lens, but, unless I am lacking a wide angle gene, they´re not willing to admit that they are struggling also. It would be interesting to hear how some of you experience this.
In this picture, the idea was to get a close-up of the anemones, but still get the environment with the river in the background, shot very close to minimum focusing distance.
