Wide angle on 1Ds3
Sep 11, 2008

Why is it that up until the release of the new Nikon 14-24mm wide angle lens, when everyone only knew the Canon 17-40mm F4, 16-35mm F2.8 I / II and 14mm F2.8 II lenses and Nikon did not have anything better than Canon at that time, Canon 1Ds3 with any of these wide angle lenses was deemed great for landscape photography due to the good glass and the high resolution sensor.

Yet the moment the Nikon was announced and it bettered on the (existing) quality of the Canon lenses, suddenly the 1Ds3+Canon WA is not good enough for landscape photography anymore?

I mean - surely professional people have taken professional landscape photographs before the new Nikon lens? So how come just because Nikon managed to create an extraordinary lens the existing lenses of Canon is deemed unfit for professional work?

Just curious.
