Testing D800e and 5D3 with the Best Wide Angles


Hello again! Thx for the comments. I am waiting for better light to shoot some more daylight images. Will post them as soon as I have them. Like I mentioned before I want to see if the 24mm PC-E is good enough. My first impression was that the 24mm TSE II beats it handily.

Looking at more images again I see how good the 14-24 is. Its really splitting hairs between it and the Zeiss. I would honestly get the Zeiss over the zoom since I mostly shoot at 14mm or 24mm and at 24mm I love the tilt shift feature of the primes. Also the 14-24mm is a significantly bigger and heavier lens but it does offer prime lens performance. Its not a bad choice at all for the 800e.

If the 14mm L II were not so good I would get the Zeiss for the Canon. But, at least my copy of the 14, is very sharp. So I see no need and it handles lights in the frame beautifully also. I do like that the points of light have more star points in the Zeiss. I believe it helps a bit in the aesthetic of the image. Notice that the 14-24 is similar to the Zeiss in that regard, nice!

I have no doubts that the Canon lenses can handle a much higher megapixel sensor, so c'mon Canon! bring it! It would kill a LOT of Medium Format Digital sales no question, at least for landscape and architecture. For people the larger chips will always produce a very different look due to DOF and skin tones.
