Kai over at DigitalRev had a chance to play with Canon’s new 11-24mm f4 L USM lens and he seems to believe that it isn’t so great for street photography. Why? It’s really wide, he states. In fact, he believes that it sees around corners (really, but not really) and you need to get very close to a subject.
To do the tests, he goes to tiny little shops in Hong Kong with the big lens–then believes that the images that it can get are awesome.
While it can create awesome images, Kai still believes that you need to use the wide angle lens to fill the scene with interesting things to look at. The video is after the jump.
