Monday 8/20 Was Canon’s Day For Announcements

Posted by larrylohrman on August 22, 2007

As the weekly newsletter said, Monday was Canon day since no less than 11 new Canon products were announced. Perhaps the most significant to real estate photographers was the Canon EF 14 mm F2.8 L II USM.

I associate this lens with real estate photographers because several accomplished real estate photographers I know use it. This lens is famous as a rectilinear lens that from what I hear it is one of the handful of ultra-wide-angle lenses have no barrel distortion. This means you don’t get those curved lines near the edge of the frame that have to be corrected. This is a pricey lens ($2100 list) and is a redesign of the current Super Wide Angle EF 14mm f/2.8L USM Autofocus Lens .

If you have seen Scott Hargis’s images on the Photography For Real Estate flickr group you may have noticed from the EXIF data that the currently available version of this lens is what Scott regularly uses for his real estate shots. Of coarse this lens is effectively a 22.4mm lens on small sensor camera bodies like Rebel XTi/D20/D30/D40 etc.
