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..

Not fast, but have you considered the Sigma 12-24? I've never used one but it's worth investigating.

yeah - but one of the main reasons i want the 16-35 is the 2.8, dancing shots in dimly light reception halls kill me @ 3.5, and @ 22mm and 4.5 forget it, i can barely see in the finder.
Thats why the 11-16 and 16-35 are up for contention. I *LOVE* my red rings, and being a CPS member it pains me to consider another tokina but if it gets the job done....just wish the tokina was sealed!

if you need a 2.8 zoom get a 16-35mm variant. If not get either the 17-40 or 12-24mm. Also consider one fast wide prime for what you're doing (the sigma 20mm perhaps?) then one of the slower zooms for non dark duty.

What are YOU doing on this forum ;) lol
Well i think the 2.8 is a Necessary requirement.
Now its just a decision if I want the sealed 16-35L or the ultra wide crop lens, that works on the FF, that zooms in the wrong direction.
