newbie here... just wondering... if you have a:

24-70L
50mm 1.8
(only)

what should be your next lens (if you have to choose between a 70-200 f/4 or 11-16 f/2.8)?

thanks....

If it were me, I'd go with the 70-200 F/4 IS in a second

can't afford the IS for now.... the price of the tokina 11-16 f/2.8 and the canon 70-200 f/4 non-is is pretty close...

what do you think of the non-is version?

Then how can we answer your question? A lens is a tool, do you want a spanner or a screwdriver?

what I meant was, I'm really torn.... i want both... I love taking landscape shots and I do need a wide angle lens (especially on a cropped body).... but I also want a telephoto zoom lens... like for example, this afternoon.. sunset was just between the branches of the tree.... I couldn't zoom in tight 'cause I can only go up to 70...

I guess to make the question clear is, what should I get first assuming I can only get one for now.....

I'd prolly go for the 70-200 anyhow, you can shoot nice landscapes with it.

With the body that you have now, focus on the telephoto for right now. In my opinion, a cropped sensor does little good with wide angle (except maybe a 10-22mm, but I do not have one so it is speculation) but does great with a telephoto. When your ready for landscapes, look at a wide angle and FF sensor (maybe a 17-40 with used 5D).

Honestly, UWA lenses kinda suck for landscape stuff. I'd rather have a telephoto in portrait orientation and stitch together a pano.

Depends what you're shooting. The newer version kit lens on a tripod paired with some filters is good enough for landscape photography for most amateurs.

UWAs can't be beat for urban photography though.
