I have the Canon 10-22 EFS which I use on my 40D but I am going to buy a 5DII. Which lens should I buy to replace the 10-22 on the 5DII? I have the 24-105L. Thanks in advance...

I replaced my 10-22 with a 17-40L. Haven't had much time to shoot with it, though.

So the jury is still out.

I would hold off buying a WA for the 5D until you get a chance to use your 24-105L. When I was shooting 1.6x, I had a 10-22 and 17-55. When I went FF, I found that my 24-70L was plent wide enough. If you regularly shoot wider than 15mm on your 10-22, then I would recommend that 17-40L as a great, midrange WA for your 5D MKII

Alot would probably reccomend the 16-35 f/2.8L II. But if you don't need such a fast UWA, the 17-40 is pretty good.

I agree with big blue. Im in the same boat. 24mm is pretty wide on FF.

I did the same thing and have been very happy with the 17-40L and way cheaper than the 16-35L, if dollars are an issue, as I don't need the 2.8

I always advocate buying the wider aperture version of a lens when you have a choice. But WA is one area where that rules breaks down. I'm not concerned by speed (f/2.8 or f/4.0) in a WA lens, because I am generally using a tripod, or the 1/focal length rule gives me some pretty easy shutter speeds to hit without introducing camera shake. With the 17-40L, I should be shooting at roughly 1/20 sec or faster to prevent camera shake in the images. With the high iso capabilities of the 5D MKII, getting 1/20 sec shutter speeds should NOT be hard to do. Therefore I see little benefit to buying the 16-35 over the 17-40L

The 16-35 mkI is only very slightly softer in the corners than the mkII, and its a lot cheaper, lighter, smaller filter, I would suggest it instead of the 17-40.

Then again- due to the nature of wide angle lenses, some for sale will have an issue, I'd advise to try before you buy.
