In the need for a wide angle for my FF. Would like to stay with 77mm filter ring size for landscape. Or mabe a link to stepdown rings for lee holder. 2.8 is needed for low light/dark with this noisy 5D2! Really getting into startrails. My 10-22 is nice on the 7D but a no go on the FF and would like to keep the 24-105.The 8-15 Fisheye is just too wide for stars. Must be sharp as i am a very hard on pixels! Tamron or Sigma is not out of the question.

You can find every size filter adapter rings for your Lee holder here (external link). The wide angle rings are $60 each.

That is one of the advantages to a square filter system like Lee -- you can use the same filters with different sized lenses.

If you need 2.8, you don't have much choice, only the 16-35 or the Tokina version (which is very sharp but can't take filters).

How about the Canon16-35mm f/2.8L II? Is it not a very sharp lens? Gonna do a search for it now. I know it "overlaps" my 24-105 by 11 mm and I'm only covered by 9mm on the low end from the 8-15mm. But neither one of those are 2.8.

If you don't need a zoom the 24L mkii would be my choice. It is plenty wide for most things and very sharp.

That Canon isn't as sharp as the Tokina, especially in the corners. But it handles flare better and it can take filters.

Let go of the worry about overlap. The 24-105 is a general purpose zoom and as such its a very useful lens. The 16-35 is a good wide angle zoom and is good at what it does. You wouldnt want to have a 16-24 just so you wouldnt have overlap, that would be silly. On the wide end each MM as suggest is a lot more significant in terms of changing field of view and perspective than on normal or tele lenses.

Another 16-35 user here. IMO worth the money. I only have a CPL for it, and they are stupid expensive.

If 15mm is too wide on your 8-15, you're probably not going to get much use out of the ultra-wide end of the 16-35, for example. Is 24mm wide enough on your 24-105? If so, the 24L is a good shout - especially considering the wide aperture for astrophotography.

You can consider the manual Samyang 24mm f/1.4 too, which seems be appreciated for stars shooting.

Gonna rent both next week. Most of the time the 24-105 is plenty wide but some situations call for touch wider and the 15 is to wide on the 5D2. Guess i'm just looking to fill the "Gap".
@ Cabe- do you have any shots taken with it? IM incoming to you.
24 Prime is nice but I think the "Zoom" will fit my needs better. Thsnks though!
