The flood of reviews for the brand new Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L continue to roll in, I don't think I've ever read so many reviews for a single lens in my life. This time, we're sharing Tim Dodd's review, who has provided some real world, working photographer points of view on this lens.
Tim is also probably the first to drop and break the big front lens cap on the EF 11-24mm f/4L, that has to count for something!
So to sum up: Canon has produced a lens that’s as sharp or sharper than its prime counterparts. Although slower (F stop wise). It has chromatic aberration and distortion well under control. Vignetting is probably its biggest fault. But, that’s probably the easiest thing to have fixed in post, so I’m not shaken by that.
It’s a heavy, big lens that might be intimidating to some. It’s very front heavy–so heavy in fact it fell out of my shoulder bag already…
