I'm looking to go wide on my 1dII. Thinking about the 24 2.8, because it's right in my price range. I maybe could stretch for the 20 2.8. Any other wide primes you guys would suggest? I'm not opposed to 3rd party, but i'm definitely looking for AF

Are you set on a prime? I picked up a mint Tamron 17-35 in the box for $215. Very sharp wide open, even better stopped down. Great reviews all over the net.

+1 on the Tamron 17-35 2.8-4. I have one and love it. It's glued to my 1.6 crop as a walk around and on the 1d2 when I need something wider than the brick.


I need to stay out of the buy/sell forum. It's burning a hole in the wallet...

I got a question regarding back button focus, Im going to give this a shot this weekend while shooting hockey, now my question is does BBF track better than using the shutter button?

I don't think it tracks "better", as they use the same microprocessors and algo's within the camera as far as I know, but its way better. Kinda gives you one-shot and AI servo all in one.

the only reason I ask is because Ive heard people say their "keeper" rate is higher using the BBF

I think (or from MY personal opinion) this is due to the 1D series not having a very distinctive 1/2 press (or at least neither of my copies do). When i used the shutter button for everything, I was constantly getting accidental shots because my shutter release button is over sensitive for my clumsy fingers. Since i've switch to back button or *, I am much better about getting the shot's i was wanting.

again, just my 2 cents worth.

So, bought a 1D MKII the other day to complement my 1Ds MKII and 5D, just waiting for it to arrive! I was undecided for a while and seriously thought about the 1D MKIII, but bit the bullet as the MKII is around half the price.

That's 'ought' to be a Parent Money shot since you have a face, the ball, and a good athletic pose happening. Getting that 'money' out of the parent's wallet might well be a whole other story!

Im looking at getting a wide angle lens for my MKII here real soon. Was wondering what you all would recommend to get. I have a budget around $600-$700 so I was thinking of the Canon 17-40mm F4L I used to have the Tokina 11-16mm F2.8 but sold it prior to getting the 1d body.

16-35 f/2.8 should be around that price range i think... If I remember correctly i picked mine up for around $650.

16-35 v.I sell for over 1000. V.II's for 1400ish.

17-40 and 20-35 both fit your price range.
