I was thinking about getting or renting a 10-18mm. But, after looking at this thread, I think the 14mm is going to be my choice. I prefer primes anyway. Lens looks like too much fun! Beach trip coming in August too! Great shots everyone!

Thanks for the kind words guys - was a blast shooting. Looking forward to a couple of weeks from now when I'm returning for a huge weekend of racing.

Awesome shots. I've shot on a drag strip in the past. Loads of fun. Excellent results with the 14mm. This WILL be my next lens!

Thanks man! Nothing like having these horsepower monsters literally 4' on either side of you. The 14mm is really one of the "best bang for your buck" lenses out there.

if you have a crop body you might want to consider the Samyang/Rokinon 10 f/2.8 which has the newer coating and is made for crop body cameras (APS-C), the 14 will not be that wide on your 20D

Sage advice. FYI - the racing photos above were shot on a 5D MK II.

On a budget, or I would consider it. And compared to the only lens I have(a 50mm) it will seem VERY wide to me!

Compare to 50mm??? are you kidding? believe me, even my 16mm lens on 16-35 that i sold isn't as wide as this 14mm, and you say 50mm??? I hope you will like that UWA focal length if you didn't test/use it before, and be careful of the distortion and don't lower it so much then your feet may get in the images, it is closer to be a fisheye lens.

I've owned a 10-22mm in the past and I loved it. So, I know I will use/enjoy the lens. With a 3rd child here now, a move, and job change, having a DSLR is on an extreme budget now. In the past I had a 5DII and a few lenses. Now, not so much, but still would rather have this beater 20D than a P&S or tablet/phone. All in with the 20D, 50mm, and now a 14mm I've spent like $325.00 Works for me :)

Ok, understand your situations, i face difficult/hard situations last/recent years so i am on very tight budget and no more gear.
