Excerpt: This lens takes some stunning pictures! You just need to realize its not like other lenses! I find I can't use the flash on my camera because it blacks out a portion of the picture. Can't even use my add on flash without a deflector.
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I bought this lens specifically for night photography and it's a great lens for that purpose. At 14mm and f/2.8 it shows little to no coma in the corners. At 24mm and f/2.8 there's just a touch of coma, but it's completely acceptable and much better than Nikon's 24 f/2.8 D prime.
Excerpt: I am using this lens of Landscape shooting. It has given me excellent results. My only complaint is you can not attach any filters to the lens. Because of the convex nature of the lens the normal 77mm rings do not work. So I have to "fix it in post"
Summary: I would give it a 4.5 star rating, but I can't, so there. Only some minor problems that I have had, so far with the lens. 1: The lens cap is a POC piece of plastic that can fall off rather easily. It's only held on by FRICTION - doh. Also, it's so big, that its hard to keep somewhere safe / handy.
Excerpt: I use this amazing piece of glass any opportunity that I can. Landscape, wedding, event and even for a few portraits if there is time. Photojournalism sometimes needs the wide angle when I get thrown in the corner of a small room. Great edge to edge sharpness.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I purchased this lens a few weeks ago and I regretted that I did not have this lens sooner. One of the greatest features I like about this lens is that it has very little distortion even at 14 mm! My initial motivation of purchasing this lens was to take photos of my house for marketing my house.
Excerpt: If your into Astrophotograpy, Group Photos or really like having a huge amount of F.O.V to play with then this is the lense for you. Good focus, it produces very sharp images with little or no distortion in any part of the image (camera and or Adobe LR can handle the rest).
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Works On Cannon
Cons: Expensive, Heavy, Not Water Resistant, Poor Filter Selection
