Can never have too many shots from Glacier NP.

From a very different place: wave "geyser" at the north jetty:

Most of what I see here is landscapes, is there anybody that consistently uses the lens for street photography?
(I have to admit I have not looked through all 36 pages of this thread, too many landscapes )

Thinking of: "If your photos aren't good enough, you're not close enough" this lens would be great.

It's a big lens would be the big thing. Most people want somewhat small and unobtrusive when they are shooting street photography (I don't actually shoot street photography except photos of country roads).

Yeah, I bet if you saw someone with the K-1 and the 15-30 you would think Pro. Just because of the size of that beast.

But for me, since I prefer landscapes and not photographing people, you will likely not see any people picks from me.

I borrowed one earlier in the year and used it for motorsport and car photography.

This link takes you to the Audi Q8 review in my magazine The Mud Life - Issue #7 by The Mud Life Magazine - Issuu which I used the 15-30mm on, though we had to crop them significantly so they don't show the true splendour!

I'll add some full size photos soon once I figure how to put them on...

This is not a street friendly lens (weight / size / exposed front element). I prefer my 20mm f4 or 28mm f2.8. Pancake primes by comparison and less than 20% the cost.
