If you mean rectilinear, then the sigma 12-24 I think.

Otherwise, you can use this with an adaptor:

Didn't want fisheye.. just a wide angle.

samyang makes a 14 rectilinear lens.

It's as good as (maybe better) than the 14L, but lacks auto-focus.

The simple answer is indeed the Sigma 12-24mm, which gives up to 122 degrees corner to corner - truly astounding! Too wide for the vast majority of subjects, but if you need the maximum, this is it.

Don't think "only as wide as possible" but also quality.
When I started I wanted as much zoom as possible and bought the Sigma 50-500, but eventually sold it cause it's wasn't as sharp and very slow and heavy.

Same with wide angle lenses, how wider they are, how more the chance of distortions.
On my 5DII I started with the 16-35 2.8L, but sold it for the 16-35 2.8LII cause the MKI had too much unsharp corners.

Most people I know do the next step : sell it for a Zeis 21mm.
They don't care it's less wider, but they are perfectionists.

I don't want manual focus lenses, so I'll keep my 16-35 2.8L II, it's my walkaround lens, bought it to replace my 28-70 2.8L.
The 28-70 2.8L was a great standardlens, but the 16-35 range can give more wow-effects as a walkaround lens.

16mm is like the 10-20 on my previous 40D cropcam, so it's extreme wide, can't imagine I need wider, now you have to look that your feet are not on the pics :)


5D MKII :: 35 1.4L :: 85 1.8 :: 17-40 f4L :: 24-70 2.8L :: 70-200 2.8L IS :: 270 EXII :: 580 EXII :: NICNA PRO 1D CPL :: Thinktank Digital Holster 2.0
Past gear:
40D|10-20|17-50|17-55 2.8IS|55-250 IS|50-500

This.

The Samyang / Rokinon / Bell & Howell /etc. A manual focus, very sharp corner-to-corner, 14mm rectilinear that works on a full frame. It requires software to [mostly] correct some distortion.

Oh, if you explore this option, be sure to check out the glue-on focus confirmation chip, or the option to purchase a nikon mount and a nikon-to-EF adapter with built-in focus confirmation. I opted out of focus confirmation but some folks really like it.

Distortion isn't always a bad thing. I love how it makes some of my shots look. When I'm shooting really wide, I usually prefer to have some distortion in the picture. I just think it looks good.
