    Thanks Tim. That's one that serves my client in any way but I'm taking more and more of those for my own.

    Baller!! :thumb:

    How are you liking that lens? Is it noticeably sharper than the wide angle zooms? How long did it take you to dial in depth of field consistently?

    PS - nice shot too! Love the light capping the hilltops.

    It's a lovely lens and is supremely sharp, but definitely not for every situation - it's expensive, too, and if I was looking at buying it again today, I probably wouldn't (but, now I've got it, I wouldn't sell it for the world). It's a very specialist lens, but I have all but stopped using my 17-40mm as a result of getting the TS-E.

    Being honest, I try to leave it in my bag unless the 28mm on my 28-70 isn't wide enough for what I want to do. I'll approach a wide vista that way rather than the other way around, as otherwise you end up trying to create something that fits the lens rather than fits the environment.

    It also slows you down considerably, which I think is a good thing. Whereas a shot on any other lens would take me around 10-15 minutes to set up (from arriving at a location), I'd say that I can add another 10 minutes or so to that to set up the shot - it's a much more deliberate process - to ensure excellent front-to-back sharpness. Of course, I could use it as a 24mm prime and forget about its perspective and focal plane corrections, but that'd be wasting away the lens's advantages.

    If you understand hyperfocal distances and how changing the focal plane can affect the image, it's not difficult to get incredible depth of field with relatively wide apertures. I also don't mind the fact it's manual focus only because I almost never use auto-focus for landscape photography (and definitely not for the type I'd use this lens for).

    This one is kind of blurry, but capturing a bald eagle in flight at 10X zoom...I think I did pretty well.

    If you want a large version of these panoramics, PM me as Google isn't letting me post. I'll email you the jpeg.

    Really nice pictures, I would have some of them as my wallpaper, but my resolution would make them pixely :(

    Any chance we could maybe keep images posted to LESS than the size of my screen? Seriously, just because we've got broadband, doesn't mean we need to see 1600 pixels wide shots. I mean, why not just post 800pixels wide and link to bigger? :wallbash:

    I just chomped the sizes for you. They're the lowest Google would go. I'm sorry for any trouble I caused.
