Somewhat Nikon 14-24 looks sharper than all Canon UWA lenses, including all TS lenses; The only thing Nikon 14-24 can't do that's T/S:

I disagree. The 17 TS and 24 TS II are much sharper imo. The Nikon 14-24 is far from perfect with it's distortion and CA. ;) Don't believe everything you read on the net. :)

There's no substitute for a good tilt-shift if you want to stitch together huge panoramas though (for printing 1.5-3m wide).

Sure there is...

You can do multi-row / multi-column stitches.

I know a guy who routinely creates mega prints without a T/S (some are nearly 10' tall and 20' wide) by making multiple passes across a subject at different azimuths and assembling them in post.

Rotating a non-tilt-shift lens also rotates the sensor and gives you a different, cylindrical projection to using shift (which gives you a planar projection, as if you were using a larger sensor).

To correct for that, you need to distort the peripheral images, with the difficulty and loss of detail that distortion entails. Also, you often run into the annoying difficulty of the software not being able to distort one of the images perfectly, giving you artifacts which must be cloned out.

Not to say that it can't be done, of course - just that shifting gives better results.

Taken with a 16-35L II on 5D2 and stitched:

^ Nice shoot!

I'm extremely suspect of the charts provided for comparison at The Digital Picture - some of their samples seem contrary to common experience. That said, the 14-24 is an *extremely* sharp lens and it wouldn't surprise me if their sample turned out that way. IMO they're pretty similar IQ-wise - that is, razor sharp.

I think that your 'birds-in-fly' are better.

Thanks but I don't have to reduce mine to fit on a billboard...

He Does!

I've seen a 20' long print of the Shuttle on the 747 that's the thumbnail for his first gallery. You could read every plaque and stencil as well as the number on each tile on the Orbiter!

Wish I could do that with landscapes.

Unfortunately, it's not really feasible to take 50+ images during the rapidly-changing light of sunrise or sunset - need to settle for just a few.

I'd love to see a one-gigapixel 612-format sensor to fit into a Linhof!

So, I might pick up D800 + 12-24; and shooting Canon and Nikon :lol:

Anyway I'm more than happy if 5D3 gets 1Dx 18MB sensor; and 7D AF would be a gift :)

Keep dreaming as rest of us :oops:

Oh man :)

yeah! YEAH!

Well for me as a Canon 5DII User whos waiting for a Replacement. The only big, always quoted Advantage of the 5D to the D700, was its higher resolution.

But the D700 is in my own opinion the "rounder" (better) Camera.
-auto iso
-better autofocus
-light metering connectable to every focus-point
-higher frame rate

I can agree with all of those accept auto ISO, I never trust the camera to pick that sort of thing for me!

5D3 will be at least $3k if not higher. Grab a 5D2 for $1999 now and sell it later if you really want Mark 3
