It's a hobby for me too. I've always dreamed of owning a tilt shift lens. My other hobby is motorcycles and I was going to buy a dedicated track bike in addition to my street bike, but went a little bonkers for photography instead. I figure I can get the track bike in a few months but I can enjoy my new camera and lenses any time I want until then. :mrgreen:

i started a year ago this month and i haven't kept records but just adding up what i can i've got a little over 12K in it right now. it's a terrible addiction, the car and deer season are the only things holding me back right now.
i was negotiating a trade with a guy for a 400 f/2.8 last week and i talked myself out of the deal. i started out with plans of shooting wildlife and i do at times but i don't need that lens.
i'm a little compulsive and impulsive when it comes to my hobbies. i don't always use good judgement.

Yeah, you definitely got me beat on this one :mrgreen:

But hey what's the point of it all if we don't have some hobbies we really enjoy and have a passion about, right?

fisheye can be straighten up by using Fisheye Hemi (external link).

If you want to go wider there is no other lens but Sigma 12-24...Your 10-22 can also be used on FF but you can use it from 15mm on wards.

i thought you had to alter the lens somehow to get the 10-22 to work.

yeah, the tilt shifts definitely appeal to me but this is a hobby. i'm surprised that i've spent as much as i have on it.
i'm almost finished restoring a '69 firebird and i was comparing which hobby i've invested the most into and it's a pretty close race.
it'll be between the 8-15 fisheye and the sigma, i think.

Rent the 8-15 first then.
I tried this lens, and mostly was either set at 8mm or 15mm focals - almost no use from 9 to 12mm. With that in mind, you can get a Canon 15mm, and the rokinon 8mm (and maybe some left for the rokinon 14mm :) and be set

As others said, the TS-e 17 would be the best deal. Then the Zeiss 15. 18 or 21.
Tried also the ef 16-35II and was not very happy with it - rather keep the 17-40.

Now, there is also the Nikon 14-24mm with EOS adapter....
- but all this probably blows your gasket...err, budget
Maybe sigma ends being a better deal, but DO rent and try both first

Yes you still need to replace the lens baffle of 10-22.

it seems like i'm close to the extreme width or length one with all of my zooms most of the time. i'm liking the three prime idea.

I've heard that the 11-16 Tokina will work on a full frame, albeit with some vingetting at the wide end, but you can pick those up used for a pretty good price. Might be worth a shot, and if you get one used, you can turn it around for no $ loss if you don't like it.

I have enjoyed what that lens will do on a crop, and when I get my FF at x-mas, I am curious to see how well it may work...

i was wondering about this. i'd like to know what you find out.
i don't see me buying a lens before the first of the year but you never know. right now i'm negotiating on tractors and that's taking most of my free time.

so far i've gotten what i expected. the 8-15 isn't really what i want (right now). and there are possibly a couple of non-canon zooms out there that might do the trick.

keep the info coming.

Look on the Toki 11-16 lens sample thread. There are guys there using the lens on a 5D body and the shots look good to me. I think ride5000 shoots with this combo, look for his shots on that thread, or PM him and he could share his experience.

17 TSE. Price is hard to swallow but it opens up a new world.

Yeah, but on our death bed, none of us will be lamenting that we didn't spend more time cleaning the garage or more money replacing the carpet in the teenage boy's room.

Have lusted after the 17 TS-E, but the front element makes me fearful about keeping it protected. Beware the TS-E lenses - after all that fiddling, you'll end up with images that make you forget you even have other lenses, like sharp, colorful drugs.

Can you rent a Zeiss 15mm?
