While purchasing some fresh fish I took a few shots of the immediate surroundings...

Canon Full-Frame Wide-Angle Lens Experimentation on Crop Body
Today was the first time I tried out the Canon EOS 70D and EF 16-35mm f/4L IS USM Ultra-Wide Angle (Full Frame) lens. Usually the lens is paired with my Canon EOS 6D, but at the time of the walkabout the EOS 6D was paired with the Canon EF 24-70mm f/4 L IS USM lens. The field of view of the 16-35mm on the crop body EOS 70D is more / less the same as the 24-70mm on the Full Frame 6D.
