Canon EF 11-24mm F/4 vs. Nikon 14-24mm F/2.8
The new Canon 11-24mm f/4 is their widest ever beast of a zoom. Roger has tested it and said it’s as sharp as we had hoped, but I wanted to know how it looked in a real world comparison with the other beautifully bulbous ultra wide, the Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8.
All images shot at ISO 100 with center point focus.
Pretty close, huh? The Nikon 14-24mm has been regarded for a long time as the sharpest wide zoom available so it’s pretty exciting to see the new Canon holding its own. Even here at 100%:
In this sample of the upper left corner there is a bit more of a difference. The Nikon is pulling ahead in clarity it seems, but they are still very comparable.
It looks like this lens is a dream come true for die hard Canon shooters that have coveted the widest edition of the Nikon Holy Trinity, and maybe even for the Nikon shooters who are total wide rectilinear junkies.
