Well first off what system do you shoot?

The f2.8 version only comes in smaller mirrorless mounts.

For the f3.5 version the only difference is the lens hood. The gold ring version has a non removeable hood and is not suited for full frame where the red ring has a removeable hood.

I have the one with the removable hood and it will work on full frame as well as crop, but I never use it on my 6D. Gives weird shaped pics on the full frame.

ouch! Did I get the wrong lens? You tell me lol ...

This is from the 1ds mk3 ... funny thing is, after it's cropped, it still looks good ..
and, it's still a bigger file then the 30D, which BTW, it goes edge to edge on.

from the camera, just resized for the forum ...
the second image is a cropped image of the the one above ...
still a good file size but oiii ... did I fug up? :(

You got the one designed for APS-C size sensors.

The 12mm one is for full frame:

I am surprised nobody mentioned it sooner. There is just less traffic on the forum these days. Five years ago, 5-10 people would have told you it was for crop the same day. And I am just seeing this now so clearly I am not as helpful as I once was either.

Yeah you're right .. but still .. I failed to use all of my resources.
