Looking to buy something wider than what I have. I shoot a 7D, and I have a 28-75 2.8, so should I get a canon 17-40 or a 10-22?

Please advise

Get a Canon EF-S 10-22 mm or the newer Canon EF-S 10-18 mm STM IS. If you want to maintain f/2.8 get the Tokina 11-16 mm f/2.8.

10-22 or sigma 10-20 for cheaper alternative.


Everything is relative.
Gear: 6D, Unholy Trinity:twisted: (24Lii, sigma 50A, 135L), and for the other ends of the spectrum, sigmaEX 14mm2.8 and sigmaEX 100-300F4.

17-40 isnt an ultrawide on the 7D. So 10-22 or sigma

The EF-S 10-22 is a very nice lens for the 7D. I've actually had one much longer than I've had my 7D. It was the first "new" lens I purchased back when I got into DSLRs and I have no regrets. That said, the Sigma is a viable option if price is a real concern. I've friends who have taken fantastic shots with the Siggy. Make sure you get a good copy, though, as I hear Sigma's quality control can still be spotty despite recent efforts to address that.

And yes, the 17-40 L is not an ultrawide on a crop body, but even so, it's a very sweet lens. I feel the color rendition and sharpness are superior to the 10-22, and that f/4 constant aperture is appreciated after the variable aperture of the 10-22.

Getting a 17-40L on a crop doesn't make much sense because of the f4 aperture. You'd be better served with a Sigma or Tamron 17-50 f2.8 or Canon's 17-55 f2.8 for roughly the same price, if not cheaper.

Eventually I will go to the 1d platform but I don't see that happening in the next year. So I'm thinking 10-22 is the way to go

When buying walkaround or UWA lenses, forget about what you'll do in the future, buy the lens that suits the sensor you're using now.

since it looks like the 10-18IS will hit shelves in the next couple weeks, I'd wait to see how that performs...you may be able to save a couple bucks and get an equal lens optically

10-22 all the way. 17-40 won't be wide enough on a crop.

This works pretty well if you're comfortable selling directly to another user on the secondary market, but there are a lot of people that don't want to deal with all that that entails. In that case, they end up trading in gear when they upgrade which means taking a significant loss on the previous purchase. For those of that mindset, I think that it's worth spending a few moments to consider what you'll do in the future.

That seems a little presumptuous given the lack of reviews for the 10-18mm.
