Someone else in the Full Frame standard zoom funk...
Yes, I am.
For what I shoot, my 24-105 is GREAT on my 1.6 crop 50D. Most of the images I shoot with it on this body are from 35mm to 105mm (which works out to a full frame equivalent of roughly 56mm to 168mm).
Unfortunately, the 50D does not handle higher ISOs nearly as well as my 5Dclassic.
So, I really need to use the 24-105 on the 5Dc to get the best image quality - but then, the field of view is not anywhere near what works for me. I only get half of the 56mm-168mm FOV that I need to shoot my subjects effectively.
Sadly, there does not seem to be any zoom lens that will give me the full range of focal lengths that I need. I had a 70-200, but it didn't work for me at all, as 70mm is so often just too tight, even on a full frame.
Sigma makes what could be the "perfect zoom" - their 50-150mm f2.8 But - and you knew there'd be a "but" - it only works on crop bodies.
So, there seems to be no high-quality zoom lens that will really fit my needs when using a full frame body.
What a bummer
"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".
