Once I manage to sell my 17-40 I will be buying this lens! I'm really looking forward to finally making the upgrade :D

Question - are all you having to use some type of straightening software for the architectural shots? There are many posted photos in this thread with leaning buildings but some looking correct. Am thinking about adding this to my collection for this type usage as have no wider angle for my full frame.
Thanks. Pete

You need to keep the camera level. Of course, this means that you may need to stand further back so that you can get the whole building in the shot. I have tried to use the Lightroom straightening slider with moderate success. You can tweak it a bit, but it's hard to get rid of it completely without messing up the photo. Best option is to make sure the camera is level.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

I was originally planing to get it at the same time as my 6D2 but my girlfriend was yelling at me about spending so much money so had to postpone it :p

Still love this lens! Even after finally getting my hands on an 11-24L, I still reach for the 16-35 IS just as often as I used to. This was earlier today with a 6-stop threaded filter:

- the light was there and gone in a few minutes once the sun got a little higher.

It is always race against time, isn't it, when dealing with sunrise / sunset shots. Even seconds count as the light changes. I often miss shots because I am fiddling with the tripod, camera settings, or composition. Great shot, BTW.

Nice! You should have taken it from down on that pier. That would be a wall hanger. The FG looks a bit shabby unfortunately in the current framing.

Thanks, Sibil!

Isn't that the truth. In fact, I used to have a full lee filter setup and a 24 TS-e II which were great, but I found myself spending more time fiddling and less time shooting. That was also enjoyable just for the sake of enjoying the craft, but the result was fewer compositions each outing. In a perfect world, I'd have both in my stable to use as the feeling struck me.

For now, I went with this lens and just take 3-7 frames a stop or two apart for blending - much more nimble for me. It's also one of the reasons I loved the ZE21 - the big MFD scale was so useable and one focal length that felt very "right" to me kept things simple...might have to get one again.

No offense to anyone else's methods with the comments above - just what works for me.

thanks Sam! i was in a rush getting there after work and tbh i've never gone down to the bottom and not quite sure how lol...i know there is definitely some construction going on though

side note got to use my new nisi 4 stop reverse grad and their pro cpl filters for the first time...very impressive, compared to my old expensive overpriced singh ray (resin and has strong magenta cast) the nisi (real glass) was like colour cast free!
