Thinking about switching to full frame, what is the widest angle lens for full frame?

I have to ask this question, have you ever used a TSE 17mm ?

If he's looking for something wider than 16mm, and can't afford it...does it matter if he's used one?

Asking the op if he has ever used a certain lens was for my own personal information.
I wanted to know, because by the way he said he wouldn't be using all the functions
made me think either he doesn't like dragging around a tripod or he has never used a TSE 17mm lens.

I love my TSE 17mm for landscape and cars, buildings, and product photography but I hate dragging around a tripod and gimble.

So yes, it makes difference to me , if someone isn't willing to pack around a tripod so they could use the tilt shift function then that would be important on which lenses are suggested to other members of this forum.

If I can give you a good hint in advance before ordering :
Don't focus too much to get the widest & don't focus on Canon only
Check to get the sharpest and/or fastest, quality glass, a good UWA is one of the most difficult lenses to find, I tested/sold many.

Out of my testings I can recommend 4 (in descending order):
Canon 16-35 f4L IS (best & most expensive)
Tokina 17 f4 (cheapest, only on Ebay, but great IQ!)
Tokina 16-28 2.8 ATX Pro (heavy, sometimes flare, no filters BUT : corner-corner sharpness and f2.8!!)
Canon 17-40 f4L the casual UWA good price/quality but not spectacular sharp

Forget the rest, these are the best...


Sony A7 III | Metabones V | Canon 17-40 F4 L | 24-70 2.8 L | 70-200 2.8L II
Sigma 50 1.4 Art | Sigma 85 1.4 Art

Lighting : Godox AD600B TTL + Godox V860II-S + X1T-S
Modifiers: 60cm Collapsible Silver Beautydish + grid | Godox 120cm Octagon softbox + grid
Tripod: Vanguard Alta 253CT carbon

There is the less used Voigtlander 12mm f5.6. It requires an adapter for use on Canon EOS cameras and may have conflicts with the mirrors in some fullframe cameras. On the other hand it will work well on a Sony A7 series fullframe camera with an M or Screw adapter, depending on the model of the lens--totally manual, of course.


Canons to the left, Canons to the right,
We hold our L glass toward the light,
Digitizing in a snap reflective glory
That will forever tell our imaged story.

Yes, for the most part I NEVER have a tripod. I am usually walking, riding my bike or riding the CTA in Chicago and taking along a tripod is just too cumbersome usually. Plus I wouldn't want to pay $2300+ for it since I'd be paying for the Tilt/Shift features. A regular 17mm, wouldn't be that pricey. I may just wait to see what comes of the 11-24mm from Canon or go w/ the Sigma 12-24....if I ever pull the trigger and switch.

Thanks, I had considered the 16-35 and was doing the math ad then noticed A LOT of my shots w/ the Sigma 8-16mm were shot a 8mm, which would be about 13mm on a full frame. I barely had any above 10mm. Plus I am not a great photographer or anything, just a hobby that relaxes my ADHD brain, haha.

Sounds like too much extra work for me, haha.

I really like my 5Dmk II, if you ever come through northern Nevada look me up.
