SSD upgrade that takes full advantage of APFS

Get Canon 5DS at B&H Photo (looks like June 2015 for both models)

Canon 11-24mm f/4L USM

The Canon 11-24mm f/4L USM has arrived. It is quite an impressive lens in size and weight and build quality—heavier than even the Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8G by about 200 grams.

Review coverage will go into DAP on the ~22MP Canon 5D Mark III. Later in the year when the EOS 5DS R arrives, I will likely take up the lens again, since 50 megapixels is much more demanding.

Canon seems to emphasize low distortion and excellent flare control, which is right and proper for a zoom lens in this range—too many ultra wides have horrific distortion.

In DAP, I’ve posted an overview page as well as a discussion of the Canon MTF chart.

MTF for Canon 11-24mm f/4L

With a lens like this, field shots are everything. I’ll be shooting it very soon in the Eastern Sierra and Death Valley area.
