My 15-85 lens lives on my camera 90% of the time. The range is just too perfect.

what do you set you focus and exposure on? just manual AF dot and evaluative, type..?

I love how sharp this photo is...any filters?

Great shot, I go up there just about every year and have yet to get a shot from that viewpoint quite this good. I'm loving the wide angle view. Oh, and you lucked out with a nice clear day with no haze/smoke! Seems like every time I'm in Glacier and want to shoot there is haze!

Brought my 15-85 (and my 50D) when I went skiing in La Grave last week.

Thanks! I really enjoy this lens for travelling and agree with Steve above that the AF is great for fast moving subjects. It has a fair bit of vignetting, but I can live with that (worst case I have just cropped the extreme corners out in PP when it has been too disturbing).

You can correct the vignetting using DPP if you shoot raw. I also noticed it very nearly disappears at f8 and above.

_______________

Thanks! I set the camera to manual mode(to keep the exposure the same for all 5 shots to stitch together) and used the center point for auto focus with evaluative metering. I think I had it on a tripod for this, but I can't remember. I used a polarizer for most landscape shots, but I took it off for this series of photos composed together to try and avoid any uneven color across the sky since I was stitching shots together. The sky does look like there is some banding in it here, but the original photo looks clean in print. They were shot at 15mm, f/8, iso 100, 1/200 sec. exposure.

We did luck out with pretty clear skies that day. Other days in Glacier were more hazy due to nearby forest fires.

well done, and I heartily agree. I'm on the lookout for an XSi to mount my 15-85 (and sometimes 50mm) as my landscape and portraiture walkaround. The XSi was my first dslr til I bought the 50D, etc and it is such a good body at bargain prices now - its a lightweight great partner for the 15-85.

Thanks! It's taken about an hour after sundown, towards the east (thought that side of the valley had much more interesting views and I liked that I could get the town in the frame). I also took some photos closer to sundown, but I think the night shots turned out better.

^^^^Fantastic night shot. Something I want to try with mine but haven't had the chance yet.

Really liking this lens on my 7D. Use it as my main walkaround lens when I'm not chasing after wildlife.
