So ive long been invested in 1.6X with a 20D, 40D, and a IR converted rebel.
These cameras worked wonderfully on my 10-22 for a long time
However, In an effort to increase my photographic abilities i moved up to a 1Ds II.
Currently, I have the 10-22 and the Tokina 10-17 FE.
The fisheye is great and i like it for wedding receptions and such, and is fun to put on the 1ds cause i think the larger sensor really pulls out the fishyness of it, compared to the crop @ 10. I dont know why..
But, my fiancee just decided since she has no UWA for her 1ds, she would sell her 10-22 and buy a 16-35L I, and only spend about 300$
This got me thinking!
However, if I sell my 10-22, the only UWA id have for my IR (which is about 90% UWA shots...) is the 16-35 or 10-17 FE. and as much as I love fisheye, i dont think i want all of the REALLY wide shots to be FE. I dont think I can afford to get the 16-35L and keep the 10-22.
Llooking into my options, I found the tokina 11-16 2.8...which solves a lot of problems! Its as fast as the 16-35, works on the FF down to about 14mm, which is wider than the 16-35, and is cheap to boot!
So would this solve my problem? It would allow an 11mm for my crops, IR and 40D, And give me 14mm on my FF?
but honestly, how does the 11-16 compare to the 16-35 on the FF, thats the main concern..
