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

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).

1ds3 ISO 1000 27mm f 3.5 1/8sec

1d3 ISO 500 16mm f 6.3 1/800 sec

1ds3 ISO 1250 20mm f 3.5 1/60 sec

5d2 ISO 500 16mm f9 1/1000

5d2 ISO 1250 f3.2 19mm 1/30 sec

5d2 ISO 3200 16mm f2.8 1/125 sec

5d2 ISO 400 16mm f7.1 1/1250 sec

5d2 ISO 640 17mm f6.3 1/200 sec

1ds3 ISO 500 35mm f 8 1/800

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

If you are interested in HDR have a look at this method

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.

I have downloaded the trial software and "played" with it. Great software and easy to use. I am going to buy it.
Thanks for sharing!

I'm considering the investment into this lens, specifically for its versatility and unique IQ.
Could some of you CR folks post photos produced by this lens in fairly dark conditions with or without flash(s)?
I plan to rent it in a couple of weeks, but I would love to see what everyone is able to do with this! :D

Here are some shots with my 16-35 II and the 5D MKIII. I've throw in some really low light deals in there too, it was great for low light on my t2i and does even better on the 5D.

Love the flowers picture. what is the ISO? Planning to get 5D III and just wanted to get an idea on how well the III performs in low light.
