    worried about perspective distortion? don't be. Use it to your advantage.

    I also wanted to check out how much the barrel and pincushion distortion affects real life images and not some chart.

    I didn't apply any barrel or pincushion correction. Yet unless you use a ruler it is amazing how little of that type of distortion there is even at the widest end. I did crop some of these to get rid of distracting elements.

    Did you test it at every focal length? Just wondering.
     
  6. Wow, they're great shots, how'd you get the clouds to move like that? I saw them, they did move :)

    ha ha. don't know for sure if he was that long. I was actually trying to make my way to the shade since it was 90 and I was roasting that I failed to noticed him.

    yes it does!

    go for it!

    Yes. But I set out to caputure huge so it was mostly at 14 all the time.

    :smile: on the subject of clouds I'm amazed at the range of a RAW file from the D700. The sky was white on all of these when I imported it and somehow there was still data there to pull plenty of blue. raw ftw.

    thnks.

    I just hate the turists walking around...oh wait I was one :smile:

    thanks.
     
  12. Whoa... that sure is a sweet lens!

    Really fun. Now I realize that not only do I "need" this lens but a bigger monitor too!
     
  15. Hi LSSE.

    Really great shots. The 14-24 i doing a fantastic job as well. You can't expect any lens to have no distortion when shooting up a high building.

    You made the best out of it. Thanks for sharing ...

    Regards

    Wow, those are cool pics. That lens looks like a lot of fun - especially mounted on a D700.
