The only fly in the ointment is the Samyang, while yes a great lens and everything especially for the price, is 14mm, and 14mm is quite wide, sometimes you really dont need to go THAT wide with what you're doing...

I agree.... very specialized lens but I always considered any UWA lens really specialized. For a select few are UWA used all the time. But I agree 14mm isn't going to be everyones cup to tea.

Maybe your friends were rtalking about the Canon 16-35? The 17-40 is far from being expensive. I own it and I like it. Most people would use it on a tripod at smaller appertures so it being a bit slower really doesn't matter in those cases.

I would've much rather had the Tokina 16-28 f/2.8, since it's the same price as the Canon 17-40 but with a better zoom range (since I own 24-105), but not being able to use a filter was a deal breaker.


Gear: Sold :cry:

That's good, 17 should be enough but if you have the money, you can even get the widest.

what about the tokina 16-28 for a bit more speed if the 17-40 doesnt fit the bill?

17-40L is a great lens...build, image quality, and price. I used it on my Rebel, 40D, 50D, and when I put it on my 5D II for the first time, and slowly turned the zoom ring to 17mm....I squealed like a little girl :lol:

Maybe the 20-35 2.8 L. Just throwing it out there since it hasn't been mentioned, and seems to fit your needs. It is old and doesn't have USM. Not sure if this matters to you. I have not tried mine on a FF. I ordered a 5d that is getting here this week. I am excited to see how the lens performs on it.

I just saw one on ebay for $700.


6D, 5D, 20-35 2.8L, 135L, 70-200 2.8IS L, Sigma 50 1.4, Sigma 105 2.8 macro, SMC Takumar 28 3.5, SMC Takumar 50 1.4, Super-Takumar 105 2.8

Was just checking prices of the voigtlander 20mm F/3.5. It's tiny and quite wide (without being stupidly wide) but reviews do state it's quite soft in the corners until F/8. But if you can live with that. And just to state again, it's TINY. That thing would fit in your pocket easily.

Doesn't take filters.
