I used to live in Las Vegas for 7 years, this thing happens often by the way. Freaky light, sick light happens often in Vegas area.

I agree with Ken Rockwell on this one, this is basically a prime with f2, too limited of a range. How about FF 10mm f 2.8 prime(non fish eye).

ThatCamFan: Seeing the noise performance, all I can say is OUCH, Canon is still so far behind.

Get a mint used 6d if you are worried about high ISO noise. I hardly shoot above ISO 1600 with my 6d and my type of shooting is at both Twilights seascapes, landscapes, cityscapes and Environmental Portraits where I shoot during blue hour until sunrise or sunset with my model using only 3 x 600-EX RT flashes and shoot away at 1600 with no problems.

But the system doesn't fit the new Canon 11mm Zoom L, disappointed. I hope Hitech Lucroit System or Wonderpana will release theirs.

JanDmitri: Seems to me that canon hasnt done squat in years and now their way of trying to make a stand again, is by releasing overkill and overpriced gear. If i had $4k to spend on a lens. the 11-24 would be the last thing id consider. Id go for the otus.
Curious to see what the 5Ds/r turns out to be and how much its gonna cost. Also find it quite funny how the MP count is all Canon is trying to push to consumers.

what more do you need? Canon has the most comprehensive lens in the industry for their dslr. CA etc doesn't show up anyways printed on fine arts papers mural sized. Printed ISO 1600 from my 6d 2 meters by 1.5 meters no noise or CA using the 16mmF4 I.S zoom.

On DPReview recommends: Best smartphone cameras post (360 comments in total)

all looks crap under artificial indoor light and backlit scenes which most selfies and portraits takes place. All phones look good under nice outdoor light except night scene. One can improve using Perfectly Clear apps.

abi170845: I love ultra wide lens and even the 14mm L mk2 is an extremely difficult lens to master. For landscape, you better have an outstanding foreground because everything else such as the horizon etc will look small and almost impossible to shoot without grad filters.

Notice on the sample gallery how the horizon looked small, even if you have spectacular cloud formations and light, they will look small. So shooting at 11mm you better have a knockout foreground that is one in a million to make the shot at 11mm.

If your thing is spectacular light during both twilights, sunrise and sunsets, filters are a must. I have to use the Hitech Lucroit on my 14mm Mk2 L, as much as I am keen on this else, I will wait until there are filters to fit this behemoth of a lens.

Ecopix, I would like to know which sensor is able to shoot against the setting sun without using at least a 3 stop reverse grad. I have to use Benson 4 stops reverse grad. When printed, even my 7d looked spectacular on Hahnemuhle Fine Art Baryta Paper and nobody mentioned anything about me usingfilters. By the way, I use a 6d since June 2014. Just use the liveview, meter on the foreground and use filters for the photo to look natural. Sometimes I just use my X pro adapter ring and use blu tac to stick my grads so I can work quickly.

For horizon shots I use Reverse Grads or Strip Filters. But we have liveview, just use it and choose which filter will look natural..Thanks for the reply Rishi! Anyway we look at it, it is a very difficult lens to master! I'd love to shoot with it, maybe I will rent it first. I was shooting at Phuket Ban Naithon Beach against the sun I really did get the shot with my 14mmMk2 L with Lucroit Filters from sunset I used .9 reverse grad until the after glow, the light, the sky and cloud was spectacular! I have never seen light like that before and I captured each passing light. What made it spectacular was on the left side of me, the cloud and light closest to me was purple pink magenta with blue light! It was amazing! I was working frantically back and forth with my .6 reverse and .6 and .9 soft grad, I got natural shot because I shot them with Liveview, and no way that I was going to miss the shot! I have been to the same place dozens of time but last August 2014 was THE best.
