Oh my sharpness looks amazing even in the corners. Too bad im so happy with my A7r + 16-35 zeiss ;)

Plus i have IS on the 16-35 which showed me on my last trip how important it can be...

I'm intrigued by this lens, but I just can't find a place for it in my lineup. It's a very odd lens that's for sure.

Looks fantastic. But I'm quite happy with my 14mm II prime.

Yes but at 11mm it will be 21% wider than the 14mm. Not that 14mm isn't damn wide on an FF body. I remember throwing my Sigma 20-40 on an old film body and being stunned by how wide it seemed. Well to someone who was more used to 35mm on 35mm film.

14mm is darn wide, 11mm is crazy wide but having a zoom that does 11-24 gives crazy wide with flexibility. That is worth alot.

I would love this lens, when prices go down.... would end my lusting for tilt shifts immediately. Glad I didnt pick up the nikon 14-24, will patiently save up.

simple, it would replace anything you've got in the range.

is 11mm the widest non fish-eye lens for 35mm around? personally i can't think of anything wider than the sigma 12-24mm.

Yup, I'm going to give it time... Hopefully pick one up on the used market one day! :)

No, not really. IF I want as wide as I can get, the 8-14 fish gets me that. If I need straight edges and fast, the Nikon gets me that.

Otherwise, the 17 TSE is irreplaceable as is the 24 L which is the fastest wa lens with 1.4.

Sorry, as I said, I'm struggling to see a need for the lens. Trust me, I'm a UWA junkie, but just can't find a spot for this one.

It does 11mm with rectangular correction and no crazy fisheye distortion. Is that not enough for you?
I await the dxo tests to see how it goes against the 14mm ii, 15mm Zeiss and 14-24mm Nikon. Which are the current best UWAs out there.

I question if you are truly an UWA junkie. The widest rectilinear lens....

Have you seen the demo on this lens? Looks incredible. I have no doubt, this is the best overall landscape lens in existence. This lens can render wide tilt shifts obsolete (somewhat), while giving 11mm FOV to avoid stitching in general.

wow man, you're really hard to please! it took until 2015 to produce a rectilinear lens this wide, 3/4ths of a century since the beginning of 35mm in the early 1900's. it's a frickin' modern marvel!

Well, I'm not a tech gear junkie, as many here are. I have specific needs which I have specific gear to handle. I still have a hard time finding a spot for this lens. trust me, I'm trying!
