Bryan at The-Digital-Picture has completed his thorough review of the brand new Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L.  There is a lot of reading and information in this review, so it’s definitely worth the read if you’re on the fence about ordering this lens.

From the review:

“…Three kinds of special lens coatings have been used on the 11-24: Subwavelength Coating (SWC), Air Sphere Coating (ASC) and Fluorine. Reducing flare and ghosting is the primary goal of these coatings and increasing contrast is the end result.”

“…If you can ease the wide end focal length requirement, the Sigma 12-24mm f/4.5-5.6 DG II HSM Lens is available for 1/3 of the price. The Canon to delivers significantly better image quality even at f/11 and has max apertures up to 1 stop wider.”

“…I’ve had the Canon 8-15mm Fisheye in my kit since it was introduced and really like it, but I didn’t find myself pulling it out very often. The distorted look was the primary reason for that lack of use. So, while it is a great lens, I traded that one in toward the 11-24. I preordered the 11-24 within minutes of the announcement and it is now a permanent part of my kit. No regrets – I love this lens.”
