I agree, the previous didn't seem to present the impression that it was a vibrant sunny day.
Thanks Jack and Tron.
After borrowing the 5DSR and the 11-24 from Canon last week, I ordered them on Friday. Arrived yesterday. I'm headed to Switzerland in October for 10 days and thought there was not a better time than now to upgrade my landscape kit. Now debating which lenses to take: 11-24 + 24-70 + 70-200 seems right, but I hate leaving the 24 TS at home - all might be a bit heavy (even for me). I will work mostly off a tripod. I could drop the 24-70 or the 70-200 and include the TS. Decisions, decisions...
Nothing beats well used tilt in a landscape. Whilst the 11-24 is a very nice lens that gives an intoxicating perspective initially, the IQ from a well set up T/S lens is noticeably higher. For landscape work I'd use the 17 &/or 24TS/E with extenders over the 11-24 every time.
As a general wide walk around lens the 11-24 is very nice and it gives creative options the traditional 16-35/17-40 never did, but it isn't the best landscape tool.
Thanks Jack - I will likely take the 24TS. 11-24 was quite interesting to use but may not be critical to landscape in CH (though I will take it since its a new toy). I really got it with a return to Canyonlands in mind where the opportunities for UWA landscapes abound. Agree that tilt can be amazing in landscape - just need my wife to chill while I dither w the set-up.
