Hey guys just a quick poll that's probably been done before but here it is anyways. Can't decide on which lens to get. Ive done alot of research but i still can't narrow it down. Im mainly going to use this lens to shoot cars. Also, has anyone ever used the Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 to take pictures of cars???? If so please post pictures and also any comments that you have on that lens. I shoot with a 50D and a 24-70L. I am thinking about getting rid my babied 24-70 L possibly to trade or sell in order to get either the 10-22, 17-55, or the tokina 11-16 for my wide angled and also a nifty fifty 1.4.

Please give me any opinions weather this is a stupid decision on my part to sell my lens for the following lenses that i considered. I just found myself needing more of a wide angled lens for shooting cars. I will use the 50mm 1.4 for my portraits. Please help me make my decision. Thanks!!!

I shot a lot of cars with my 18-50 2.8 sigma (muscle cars to be put on ebay and up for sale), and I personally think the Tokina 11-16 would be a great lens to use, especially to get interior shots and UWA exterior shots. If I ever got back in to it, that's what I would buy. Plus you have the constant 2.8 that you can use in low light and tons of other situations.

Not sure if I would wanna do without a walkaround zoom though.

If you are considering, I would be interested in trading my 50 1.4 plus cash for your 24-70 L. PM me.

Too many people here never shoot anything but Canon. I've had the pleasure of borrowing a friends Tokina... it's a stunning UWA. If you don't want the ultra-wide, get the 17-55 is

The 17-xx is not going to be very wide on the 50D at all. So the question is, do you want UWA or not? If yes, then the Canon 10-22 or Tokina 11-16 are the only choices...

What about the Sigma 10-20mm? It's a fantastic lens, and it'd save you some serious bank over these others.

I'd go with the 10-22 for cars, wide angles make for some interesting shots!

I agree.

But if you're getting rid of the 24-70 anyways the 17-55 is a much better general use, walkaround lens on a crop body. I would pair that with the 10-22 for when you want the UWA look.

"Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 AT-X116PRDXC AT-X PRO DX " - That rolls of the tongue doesn't it.

I voted for the Canon 10-22mm cos it's easier to remember :-)

I'd keep the 24-70 and get the 10-22 or whatever other UW you decide on.

I was very content with the 10-22 when I had a 40D.

I have owned all three lenses and I voted for the 17-55. It is so sharp and the focus is always so perfectly spot on that it makes you look better than you really are. Between the two uwa's I would recommend the tokina11-16. Easilly the sharpest uwa out there!!

My 10-22 nicely compliments the 24-70. Since I do not use it that much I was not to worried about the non-constant f/stop. I also never bothered to look into the 3rd party line ups. Either case, keep to 24-70. All things considered the 10-22 is not that expensive. Try finding a used one. But out some wanted ads. Worked for me. Cheers!


I'm in Canada. Isn't that weird!

I own the Tokina and love it. Never used the other 2 lenses. The Tokina has a constant 2.8 which has been real handy when visting muesums and other low light places.
