Tim Dodd has been meaning to post some reviews of his gear—a set of tools regarding which he is (or so he informs us) mighty opinionated. Well, he has finally gotten around to doing so, in this Canon 11-24mm f/4L Review; and, as it turns out, when Tim Dodd reviews a piece of equipment, there can be no doubt in anyone’s mind that it has been roundly, soundly and profoundly reviewed. His discussion of the Canon 11-24 mm f/4L is both extensive and surgical, and stocked with helpful images. The upshot is that he likes it (“this thing is just simply a beast” he gushes as he pulls the enormous thing out of its box) and it will be traveling with him, although it will be serving primarily for architectural and real estate shoots.
During the course of this Canon 11-24mm f/4L Review, he compares the Canon 11-24 mm f/4L to a variety of other glass(es), applying such common-sense criteria as how well it fits to his Canon EOS M body, autofocus, manual focus, chromatic aberration, contrast, wideness of angle, and just sheer size (he can’t get over how BIG this monster is).
In summary, he’s impressed with the sharpness, although it’s kind of slow. It’s great on distortion and chromatic aberration. He’s not thrilled with how it handles vignetting, but he’s not worried since he can take care of that later. The 11-24mm f/4L turns out to be, not just a big boy, but a good boy.
