taken with Canon EOS 5D
The following images were taken with the Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM lens using the Canon EOS 5D; note the 5D’s full frame sensor allows the lens to deliver exactly the same field of view as it would on a 35mm body. Each image was recorded using the 5D’s Evaluative Metering, Large Fine JPEG mode and Standard Picture Style. The individual file size, exposure mode, shutter speed, aperture, ISO and lens details are listed for each image.
The crops are taken from the original files, reproduced at 100% and saved in Adobe Photoshop CS2 as JPEGs with the Very High quality preset, while the resized full images were made in Photoshop CS2 and saved with the High quality preset. The three crops are typically taken from far left, central and far right portions of each image. For more 17-40mm shots with the 5D, visit the Gallery of our Canon EOS 5D review.
