Keith at Northlight has completed his initial review of the Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L. In case you're wondering, ours won't be done until early April. Keith's review has lots of sample images and a great mix of technical goodies and real world thoughts.
“The lens is impressive on so many levels – not least of which is the solidity when you pick it up.
I was initially expecting to see rather more basic distortion (barrel/pincushion) in the image at different focal lengths, I mean, this is what you often get with wider zooms?
Well no, the performance is what I'd expect from a decent prime lens right across the focal length range. We'll have to wait for the detailed optical analysis to come in to see for sure, but from my initial week of using the lens, it's performed excellently.”
