Excerpt: I shoot landscapes with the canon 5dmkii and spent over a year wringing my hands over available choices in the wide angle area from 16-24. my Canon 24-70 wasn't cutting it for details on Grand scenics, the 17-40 was appalling in the corners with distortion issues, the 16-35 iI didn't impress me.
Excerpt: The colors this lens produces are unbelievable. I primarily shoot video with this lens on a Sony A7s full frame and the final product needs almost no post color correction. Excellent for natural light and outdoors, but also works great in low light indoor settings. Solid metal construction.
Pros: Consistent Output, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Summary: This lens is just wide enough for me for wide shots. The 15mm and 18mm bend the image too much for video. It's very sharp and has a very loose focal ring. I do however wish it was a 1.4 or 2.0.
Excerpt: Use for Landscape and 5d mkII. Used appropriate testing methods for stable in focus shots. Compared to 24 tse, extremely sharp canon 24-70, Rockinon etc. I have also used the C/Y version of this lens. CA non exisitant. Bokeh is nice, smooth, not nervous. Color is beyond awesome.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: The good. Color is phenomenal. CA is low. Relatively nice manual focus feel. Perfect feel, not loose like my canons. Foreground close focus is fantastic and close objects are very sharp compared to all Canons. Can get within 4 inches of a flower and get crazy detail.
Excerpt: This lens has unbelievable quality of picture that cannot be measured in the technical reviews you read. Photography is about the feeling you create and this lens is helping a good photographer to do exactly that.
Excerpt: You have to know that this lens is manual focus only. That is not a problem with it not only because of the focal lenght but also ´cause you get used to it. The construction is the best of the best, and the optical quality is superb. You know you want it..
