In a few weeks I will be on vacation in California. Will be stopping in Yosemite and then San Francisco. I have been looking at either renting the Canon EF 14mm, Canon 10-22mm, or maybe the Canon 16-35mm. I have done as much research as I can and time is running short, I need to make a decision. With that I am reaching out to anyone who could offer up an opinion. Forget to mention the lens would be used on a Canon 7D and I'm looking at those lenses for landscape shots. Thanks for the help!

What lens do you have now?

Just basing on nothing but the fact that you have a 7D, I'd go 10-22. The others are really not as wide and really would be more at home on a Full Frame camera body like the 5D. 10-22 is a killer lens and you'll really like it if you are after wide shots.

Currently have 24-105 lens. Thank you much for the great advice!

10-22 and 24-105 would be a good combo. 10-22 covering the wide end (and 10mm is VERY wide) and 24-105 covering the normal to telephoto. I'd definitely go that route.

Just as a way of relaying how wide 10mm is compared to 24- zooming from 24 to 10mm is like going from 60mm to 24mm on your 24-105mm. You'll have to watch for your toes in the frame if you tilt down :)

16 or 17mm on the crop is not quite wide enough for "real" landscaping, whatever that might be.


My imagine composition sucks. I need a heavier lens.

Well that is debatable. A lot of landscapes even use telephoto.

Yes of course. But you want the option of going wider than 27mm.

10-22mm should pair well with the 24-105L...

I had a 7D and one of my favorites was the 10-22. I loved this lens and if your looking for wide this is the one to have. It is a beautiful lens to have on the 7D. The 16-35 isn't going to be wide enough. I picked this one up when the 7D went away and the 5D MkIII was purchased.

Hands down from your listed options, the 10-22mm. Awesome UWA lens on the 7D!
