The Canon 11-24mm f/4L USM (about $2999) offers an unprecedented extreme wide angle zoom range (for a rectilinear lens), surely destined to become a workhorse for some styles of photography, just as the Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8G is.
Versus the Canon EF 8-15mm, the wide angle shooter not needing a fisheye lens will surely prefer the 11-24mm as a more useful all-around range. Adding the excellent 24-70 f/2.8L II yields an 11mm to 70mm range with two zoom lenses—a range sufficient to handle a huge chunk of shooting situations. Those needing more can then add the 70-200mm f/2.8L II for a high performance 11-200mm range. Three relatively heavy lenses, but tremendous range with high quality; a compelling approach for those looking for maximum versatility with high quality.

Diglloyd DAP is DSLR-oriented, but also contains workflow and other topics. Much of the focus is on Canon and Nikon but also Pentax and Pentax medium format.
Special emphasis is placed on lens evaluation, focusing on Canon and Nikon and Sigma lenses, but with a few others like Rokinon/Samyang.
- Make better images by learning how to get the best results right away.
- Save money by choosing the right lens for your needs the first time, particularly some of the new Sigma Art lenses vs Nikon and Canon.
- Workflow discusses image organization, raw conversion and post processing. Many examples show processing parameters for direct insight into how the image was converted.
- Jaw-dropping image quality found nowhere else utilizing Retina-grade images up to full camera resolution, plus large crops [past 2 years or so].
- Real world examples with insights found nowhere else. Make sharper images just by understanding lens behavior you won’t read about elsewhere.
- Aperture series from wide open through stopped down, showing the full range of lens performance and bokeh.
- Optical quality analysis of field curvature, focus shift, sharpness, flare, distortion, and performance in the field.
