My Canon EF 24-70 F/2.8 (I) Lens

Hi Bruce. Nice job you do here!

I have a full frame Canon. it sometimes is used to shoot wildlife or of other quirky things on the beach. I'm an amateur.

I shoot mostly landscapes... actually seascapes, mostly at 24 mm using a 24-70 f2.8 (or sometimes at the 35 mm equivalent using a Fuji X100V.)

Am considering buying a used Canon EF 16-35mm f/4 L IS USM ($714 at MPB) I am torn regarding whether I will use those extra 8mm. Thoughts?

P.S. Like you, i waited most of my life to see the Eagles win the Super Bowl!


Hi Rick

Go Birds! Hopefully our new coach will handle the QB situation well. Glad the post on the Canon 24-70 lens was worthwhile for you.

Shooting Landscapes with 16mm versus 24mm

I think you will find that a 16-35mm will make a huge difference in how you shoot landscapes. A 24mm lens can handle a lot of subjects, but there is a big jump in angle of view when you go from a 24mm to 16mm focal length. Landscape photographers like getting that super strong perspective and emphasizing objects in the foreground.

Rick, Please keep in touch with your progress.
Bruce

Thank u for the response. i will definitely buy a wide angle soon

one of the rumor sites mentioned a possible RF 10-24mm f/4L USM

i might wait to see how much that costs before deciding.
