Landscapes, I prefer lenses with no rotation, no extending.
Like 17_40L and 70_200F4L. It is easy to work with slide-in filters on them.
They are not so heavy, I don't need monster tripod for them.
17_40 will do the street. I use 28 3.5 Oly MF for candids. Costs times and times less compare to Sigma 30 1.4, which is nice to have.
If you want to have straight lines for city pictures - you'll need T&S wide lens.

+1
I myself prefer lenses that don't extend. Easier to keep them from hitting anything and also easier to clean them. I don't have 17-40L but the double extension of 15-85 annoy the heck out of me.

^this definately, unless you need a zoom. Then 17-55mm 2.8 IS or 40 stm if your on a budget.

24ii is pretty perfect on crop for this considering the look and low light capability and wide enough to landscape....really only downside is the cost, so assuming that cost makes it out something similar in that FL (24-28) should be nice.

Tamron 17-50 2.8
Sigma 17-70 2.8-4 OS
Canon 15-85 3.5-5.6 IS

all are great lenses, just see which fits your needs and budget best.

Any of these, unless you want a fast prime. (If it were me though) Chances are I'd want a different fast prime for street versus landscape.


Thanks for Reading & Good Luck - Jim

I have the Tokina 12-24 to landscape. 17-55 would be good for street but to long for landscape.

I just use a 28mm on my 60D.
If I need wider for a static scene I usually just do a multi-shot panorama.

Great call! If I stayed crop, I would own this. I change my vote to this from what I have seen on the internets.

Don't overlook the "kit" 17-55 IS STM lens. It's very, very, very good.


Shoot first and ask questions later.

Why so keen on spending the OP's money? Everybody "overlooked" the Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM?? Or is it not expensive enough for creating bragging rights?
Has anybody really tried it?
For the price it is a no brainer, sharpness and IS make it much more usable than previous generations of the kit lens.

I guess that limbwalker meant this one ;-)a

Please suggest some good Canon and non Canon lens for street and landscape photography on APS C canon dslr.

Thanks

Jai.

Heya,

Depends on budget.

I'm going to bet budget is a factor. I'd get two lenses.

EF 35mm F2 IS
Rokinon 14mm F2.8

But it depends on the kind of photograph you want to do. If you want to shoot people, get a zoom or long focal length prime. If you want to shoot the city, use wider angle like the 14mm and 35mm. Otherwise, go 135~200mm for the longer reach if you want to shoot people and stuff without being in their face. Up to you.

In which case, for people and stuff:

EF 70-200 F4L or EF 200mm F2.8 II (with a 35mm F2 IS)

Very best,

Well it is easy to spend other people's money so why not:lol:

Seriously though, the kit lens is great, but for street?

It is super slow, which for street is a double whammy negative for both available light and desired DOF, so for those reasons something 2.8 constant or faster would be the better recommendation, and even on a budget that can happen. I would rather any cheap faster prime than the kit lens for street.

The kit can take some nice landscapes, so no issues there.
