So i went FF and sold off my crop uwa. now i didnt use it much but it was deff nice to have. so question is, whats a good UWA lens for a 5d? now i dont need AF or a super wide apeture. so id be ok with an older MF lens with and adapter. i dont need L quality as ill only use it ever once in a while but decent quality would be great. im looking for something under 200$ but if id have to id go higher it be ok. Oh and zoom isnt that big of a deal if there is a 17mm prime or something that would work...any input would be great!

20mm is considered the beginning of UWA. $200 won't get you an EF 20mm f/2.8 USM and a 14mm prime will need a lot more money so Canon primes are out.

$200 could get you an EF 20-35mm f/3.5-4.5 USM. It is pretty good and has quick ring USM autofocus with FTM.

For around $100 you could get an EF 22-55m f/4-5.6 USM but it isn't quite UWA and it flares easily. Not so good. Considerable care is needed to get a good image.

Maybe look into one of those cheap 19-35mm f/3.5-4.5 lenses from Tokina. Apparently they are half decent and really cheap.

If you would like a fisheye, the Zenitar 16mm f/2.8 fisheye can be found below $200. It would give 180° diagonally.

The Samyang (Rokinon, Bower, etc) 14mm f2.8 is prolly the best one for a super low price. Around $300-$350 I think.

^Yes the Samyang 14mm has been getting pretty good reviews. In fact, I'll be ordering soon for my 5DII.

At that budget, you do not have a whole lot of choices.
And Tamron 17-35mm is one that fits the bill and works on 5D.
