Sounds like you want the 17-40. If you read enough reviews of it you will find people who are critical of the sharpness in the corners, but there arent many other options that are any better, certainly few for the money.

It doesnt has to be such a range till 40mm, since i covered everything from 24-70...

It even doesnt has to be a zoom lens, maybe a bit wider also?

20mm f/2.8

Its cheap, has USM, and is awesome. I sold my 16-35 f/2.8L II for one and I have no regrets.

17 is a lot wider than you think. The difference between 17 and 24 is pretty striking. Anything much wider than 17 begins to bring on lots of distortion and some tendency towards fisheye.

I know how wide 17 is, i have a 8mm on crop (13mm on FF)

while writing this i wanted to find out how much 17 on crop is, and that would be around 10 or 11mm so its not a big difference :oops:

However, i'd prefer a lens like that without a range to 40mm, but having a little bit more light coming i, maybe f/3,5 or 2,8? :S

Do not discount the advantage of focal length range to 40mm. This can mean either (1) fewer lens changes, or (2) being able to leave the 24-xx zoom home, depending on the intended subject matter. On our last trip to South Carolina, I left the 24-105L home and just took the 17-40L and a telephoto.

If you want something wider, Sigma makes a 14-24mm zoom, and Samyang/Rokinon makes a 14mm f/2.8 prime lens, which is manual focus and costs under $400.

There is the 16-35 II which is 2.8, not that much wider but it is 2.8 but at a pretty big price point. There are the Samyang primes but you give up autofocus.

Hmm okey but thats too pricey.

Ill read some reviews and comparisons of the 17-40mm and try to decide what i want to do next. I think the 17-40mm is still a great investment, as its weather-sealed and seems to gives you decent sharp images.

Ill take a look and decide then, ill let you know :)

Thanks!

You really need to decide how you are going to use the lens. F4 is a bit slow, but on full frame its likely to be a landscape lens which is not often practiced wide open anyway.

Tokina 11-16 and just use it from 14-16?

really, there aren't a huge number of options for FF UWAs. You have two good ones already mentioned (17-40 and 16-35). Unless you want to go with a 14 2.8 which is way out of your price range.

I think the options for me is the 16-35 or the 17-40mm

I just realized, that when i could sell my sigma 8-16, i could go for the 16-35, because i really love shallow DOF. And even if im using it only on 4 or 5.6, which i dont think as i dont do alot of landscape photography, its still nice to have 2.8 when you want to keep handheld shots under bad lighting situations... I mean i wont use the sigma anymore on crop when i can use a 16-35mm on a fullframe...

And 35mm is a nice focal length for streetphotography too while on a city trip. And when im on a city trip or travelling i can also make use of a much wider focal length which allows me to shoot buildings and whole scenes etc. (as it has 2.8 at 35mm too it doesnt only have to be a wide-angle for me)

I have to sleep a night before i decide what to do.
