    Oh dear Lord, I'm in love: Got the 14/2.8 today. One heck of a lens. Sharp to the corners, perfect width for a wide prime....love.... Took it for a spin around the Ohio State campus:

    The Horseshoe:
    horseshoe.

    the architecture building:
    columns.

    building_waves.

    And I can't decide whether I prefer the black and white or color for this one:
    column_mirrors.

    Thank you so much for posting the images. My wife and I are both Ohio State grads and have not returned to campus for many years. Nice to see some recent photos of the stadium. Loads of wonderful memories created in that place.

    Nicely done. The third is my fav. I think the color displays the clouds more than the B&W.

    Jman, love the "geometry"of the first image, and very nice set. You do the 14 proud.

    Thanks, everyone. I've always been a wide angle guy, and have owned a lot of high end ultra wides. The 14 might be one of the best.

    It is an amazing lens and you're using it really well here Jordan. Great stuff! Just turned off the TV - sorry about the game tonight...

    Hehe...thanks. I'm a casual OSU fan, so I'm not really that bummed. My wife went there, but I went to school in upstate NY (Cornell), so my OSU sports allegiance is pretty much casual football and basketball. I'm much more of an NFL, NHl and college hockey (and thus my alma mater) fan.
