Hey everyone!!

I just moved from a 60d do a 1ds mark iii. Previously I was using the 17-40mm as an all around lens but for my new camera the vignette is out of control. Do you all have any recommendations for new all around lenses for a full frame camera?

It would be very helpful and I'd be much obliged.

Thank you all!

Stop the 17-40 down a bit and the vignette will reduce/disappear. More useful all round lenses would be the Canon 24-70 (any version) or the 24-105.


Life is for living, cameras are to capture it (one day I will learn how!).

Heya,

Describe all around? Do you need wide angle? Do you want telephoto? `All around' to me is a relative term. Also you stated "lenses" so that is plural. Does that imply you want a zoom to cover everything, or are you interested in a prime or two? Or a prime and a zoom?

Bottom line is, what kind of photography do you do, and what are you preferred focal lengths? That will determine what is your best `all around' lens for you.

Very best,

I'm looking for anything that could be considered an all around lens. I'm willing to check out any suggestions. Even if I don't get an ultra - wide now I would love some suggestions for that as well. Prime and zoom. I was thinking about getting a super super wide lens before I upgraded to the full frame. I do a lot of event photography- wedding, concerts and political events. I regularly do portraits as well. I guess the only thing I really don't do is sports photography.

Heya,

Based on what you're shooting, 24-105mm zoom with a 14mm f2.8 prime as a package. I'd do that.

Very best,

If you were happy with the 17-40 on a crop-sensor you will fall in love with the 24-70 f/2.8L on a full-sensor body. The 17-40 on a 60D is equivalent to a 27-64 on FF, so you gain a little on both ends of the zoom range. But more important, IMHO, is the f/2.8 fixed maximum aperture for low-light and shallow depth-of-field situations.

If desired, the 85 f/1.8 is a great lens at an affordable price, and ideal for portraits.

The most all around lens that I can think of, is the 28-300. You should really check it out.

24-105 if on a budget, 24-70 if you have a little extra spare change! ;)

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

If these events you typically do are usually indoors or low light, then you will be happier with a f2.8 lens. In that case, the 24-70 2.8 II is a great all around. If you do more outdoors, travel, then the 24-105 f4 is good for that. The 24-105 will work indoors with a flash and Ive spoken with a couple wedding photographers who use the 24-105 with flash exclusively for weddings. Your call. If you start with one of these zooms, that would cover a good range for you until you add to your lens collection (whether its primes or additional zooms)
