Hey guys
I'm after some suggestions...

Since Canon isn't generous enough to give us an EF 10-22 to fit a 5D, what to do??

I know some people modify it to fit, but it still does hit the mirror when wide open, so not keen to do that.

What lenses do you guys recommend that arent going to break the bank, but are up there with the quality that the canon 10-22 has?

I've only ever had canon lenses so havent been game enough to venture into sigma, tamron, etc.

Help!
Thanks :)

Is that the fisheye?? If so, what about the distortion??
Any vignetting on FF?

17-40 is your FF equivalent to the 10-22 on a crop.

Is Tokina 11-16mm any good? Or will that hit the mirror too?!

Thanks for that. Do you find it wide enough for commercial real estate or do you feel the need for something a bit more??

The Samyang is not a fisheye I don't think. I have seen some pretty decent shots with it.

the widest FF (non-fish-eye) lens from Canon is the EF 14mm f/2.8 II USM. It costs a packet, though. If you need the f/2.8 aperture you could consider the EF 16-35 f2.8 as an alternative to the 17-40mm.

Real estate = tilt shift, and the 17mm TS-E as well as the 24mm TS-E should be your primary choices.

Since you're always shooting very controlled scened with T-S lenses (meaning manual exposure + tripod), you can almost always get away with a stitch. If you stitch 3 shots from the 17mm, you'll definitely be wide enough for anything imaginable.


Some of my lenses focus beyond infinity...!

I shoot architecture professionally and my main lens is the 16-35.

I agree....if real estate is your goal, a tilt/shift lens is what you'll want. If you shoot with a "normal" lens, you'll find yourself needing to correct perspective distortion after the fact way more often than you'll want to.

Real estate or architecture?

They're kinda the same thing, kinda not. If you're shooting architecture professionally, a TS lens would be a really good idea. However, if this is just real estate shooting (walking around/handheld, etc) I think a 17-40L would be a better idea.

The 10-22 on a crop body is the equivalent to the 16-35 on a FF. I've owned all three lenses, 10-22, 16-35 and 17-40 and they all feel about the same in the focal length department. I like the IQ of the 17-40 best, but the 16-35 is pretty much identical. The only thing I'd think about is how much handheld inside shooting you'd be doing. This is the one case in which I *might* choose the 16-35 over the 17-40, however, the 5D3 does so a remarkably well in low light, I feel like the extra stop isn't a deal breaker for me.

Lastly, like it was suggested earlier, the Canon 14L would be an awesome lens to shoot with as well, especially indoors. It does really well with distortion and has the f/2.8, overall great lens.

Tilt shift lenses are wonderful but break the bank.

Hopefully the new Samyang will change that. POTN thread
