To experience the ultimate in wide-angle photography, the EF 11-24mm f/4L USM brings L-series construction and optics to the widest zoom lens Canon has ever made. With an expansive wide-angle range of 11-24mm, this is an ideal lens for landscapes, interior shots, and unique perspectives on subjects close and far. Its new optical design features Super UD and UD lenses that correct chromatic aberration. Four aspheric lens elements help to minimize distortion from the center of the image to the periphery and throughout the zoom range. A Subwavelength Coating (SWC) and Air Sphere Coating (ASC) significantly reduce flare and ghosting, while a 9-blade circular aperture diaphragm creates beautiful, blurred backgrounds. For silent and fast AF, it features a rear focus system and ring USM, and can be manually focused even when in AF mode. It has a minimum focusing distance of 11 in./0.28m (extreme telephoto) for admirable performance and results even when shooting in tight spaces.

Bottom line...it improved my bottom line. Hard to beat that as a review, especially for a lens this expensive.
It was WELL worth it! I'm a real estate photographer who used the 17-40MM lens for a few years and thought I got great photos, but this lens, combined with the Canon 5D Mark IV transformed my business to an incredible level in the first shoot!
It's not just the width and perspective, it's the clarity and look of the photos that makes it well worth the price. If you're a professional photographer, especially if you need a wide angle lens for architecture or real estate, then it would behoove you to make the investment.
Using it with a 5Dsr, and I'm very impressed. Now I'll sell my 14, 15, and maybe a 24, simplifying my kit. This lens is heavy but versatile. You'll have to be careful with it because the huge front element seems very exposed. But it is a marvel of optical engineering, with minimal distortion.
The CA is very well controlled - much better than the fish eye zoom but not as well as 16-35 f4.
This lens is HEAVY - although it is part of my 'small' travel kit (11-24, 24-105, 100-400) it weighs as much as 70-200 f2.8 and is wider than that lens. This is the main problem with this lens, it's not very compact for an f4 lens and the front element is huge and can not be covered with a filter for protection. But these are small problems once you see the images that can be created through this lens.
First, the build quality is excellent. I believe that the cliche of "built like a tank" applies. As for the size of the lens, it is very big but I think some people exaggerate a bit about it being "gigantic." I found it easy to hand hold while taking shots of the Baltimore Inner Harbor a few days ago (several of these are posted below and they are HDR shots with seven exposures taken with Canon EOS 5D Mark III stitched together with the Photomatix HDR program). As for the interior shots of the National Cathedral (also posted below), I did have to use a tripod to produce HDR shots there but that's hardly surprising.
My initial impressions of the lens ultra-wide angle capability is yes, it is indeed impressive. Shooting 11mm ultra-wide on a full frame body blows the doors off doing the same at 16mm (I previously used a 16-35mm F2.8 for my wide angle work. I'm really looking forward to my trip up to Svalbard (the Norwegian Arctic archipelago late this spring). With this said, it is a bit tricky sometimes to keep unwanted bits and pieces out of the frame (but that's what cropping is for).
My one gripe (sort of) is that the lens is pretty expensive. I paid about fifty dollars over the list price in order to get one sooner rather than later. Some people probably will balk at paying so much for a lens like this but luckily for them, there's always the other wide angle Canon lens options (zooms and primes). But as for myself, ever since I looked through another photographer's Nikon 14-24mm at Yellowstone Park, I knew I wanted something similar or better for my Canon cameras...and after a long wait, Canon finally delivered.
