Took a last minute 4-day in New York. First time using the lens other than stopping by the zoo trip on the way back from the camera store with the new lens, where I realized some online reading was needed to figure out this lens.
After a LOT of reading and studying, I went from fearing I'd bought the wrong lens to being really excited about the whole new field of view and feel I can learn how to get using this lens.

Is that the EF 16-35mm f/2,8L III USM? I have a release II, and love it.
This is an HDR shot at 16mm.

Hi Waddizzle. Yes, it is the version 3. WA is so different from the 35mm normal and 70-200 telephoto lengths I am mainly used to.
I am mostly working on my technique and how to compose with such a challenging and unforgiving field of view, but from the technical/equipment standpoint, I am really liking the excellent color rendering and sharpness.
It has been a while since I was so excited about shooting. Such a huge change in the look of the shots and the possibilities using the foreground-background distortion to good advantage.

You can take some seemingly "impossible" shots.
Like a 14 story building less than 100 feet from it. Yes, that's a 14 story building. We don't do a 13FL in NYC.

Scott the little girl in the last shot is adorable. Yours? I am glad you are enjoying the new purchase. Keep'em coming!

Thanks Ernie. Yes, that's my littlest. She's a big fan of hot dogs and that was a hot dog stand called Grey's Papaya in NYC.
Really enjoying the lens.

Now that's what I call some cool barrel distortion! <joke>
Great shot, Waddizzle.
Thanks, John_SD. If it seems like the camera is fairly high off of the ground, above the street, that's because it was. That's a handheld shot. I stand 6'9". That's what the world looks like from a skybox.
