I've heard it all "What if I buy an EF-S lens and then upgrade to full frame?"

Sell your EF-S, then, and upgrade. Enjoy the upgrade.

Here's a new bone to chew on: What if I upgrade to full frame, then buy a 40D and miss my ultrawide capability for the 40D?

I'm an ex-10-22 owner who had and loved that lens a lot. Thinking that it may be time to welcome my 10-22 back so my 40D can have ultrawide capability. Sure, it duplicates my capabilities, but then I have a choice of either camera body and a full spectrum of coverage from ultrawide to supertele. Really the 10-22 is the only EF-S you need, you can cover everything else using EF lenses if you are really that keen. Plus I'm a serious, SERIOUS ultrawide user. A quick glance at my prints hanging on the wall and filed in my portfolio would testify to how effectively UWA's have been deployed.


I'm tempted... :)

Get a Sigma 12-24 which will work on a film or FF dSLR.

I'm going to be upgrading to a 5D as soon as the next rebates come out in the fall from Canon... With that said, I plan on keeping my 30D as a backup and the ONLY EF-S lens I felt was worth buying was the 10-22 and I love it... Now I just need to get a 16-35 when I get my 5D.

I think of EF-S and FX sensor sizes as two different camera systems. The fact that you can use lenses designed for EOS FX cameras on an EF-S camera is a great convenience for EF-S users, but I would not let that compromise the lenses I chose for either system. (That is why I have a 17-55 for EF-S and a 17-40 for film.)

If you opt for the 17-40 for the 5D instead of the 16-35, then all of your lenses will be of the same filter size (unless you really need the 2.8). The 17-40 on my 5D is *really* wide. What's that 'POS'...some new type of coating? ;)

I am "kind" of in the same boat... I once had the 10-22 but sold it because I didn't think I was going to need it as I was getting the 17-55. Big mistake!!! still dreaming about it. One day... I will get it back.

Argyle - Yeah, I'm kicking around the the 17-40, though for some of my wedding work inside churches, the 2.8 is nice... I'm not thrilled about having different filter sizes though for my recreational landscape work I do...
