I have the 17-40 f4L lens from Canon. I know a FF would be best to use with this lens. I only have apps 550.00 to spend on a body. Can you recommend one?
I use it many for groups, some portraits and walk around camera. Thanks, rollsman

I use it on Rebel. It works as portrait lens, but for indoors you need flash. But you are going to need a lot of light for groups indoors anyway.
As walkaround it is good, but heavy.
And it doesn't vignette a lot from 17 to 22 mm even at FF, as long as you not using two filters on it. In fact, I don't recal I have to correct it after I took two hundreds pictures with it in and outdoors on 5dc two days ago.

Are you running a filter on the lens? I use it on my 5D with no filter and I get no noticeable vignetting...

More than likely I did have a filter on when I noticed the vignetting but it's pretty limiting if you can't use a filter of any kind ... for example, I always have some sort of filter on all my lenses. Found out the hard way that a filter is a LOT cheaper to replace than the front element of an "L" lens.
So without a filter, the 17-40 is not an ideal lens, IMHO, for FF cameras!

A couple examples ...

First is at 17mm ...
second is at 22mm ...

You mean it's limiting if you can't use TWO filters? One filter, any filter is fine on FF. I guess you are stacking a polarizer on top of a UV filter.

Now at f4 17mm, yes there is appreciable vignetting (not the mechanical vignetting show above) with or without a filter, but the corners are soft enough that you probably don't want them too bright anyway. That 'normal' vignetting is what I thought you were talking about in your first post. And yes, wide open, there is some darkening in the corners.

Actually though as a comparison, the vignetting is not as bad as the 24-105 @24mm.

The Canon 17-40mm f/4L works good with a FF body and one filter. At 17mm it does not vignette at all.

Take Care,
Cheers, Patrick
