so like many of you I picked up a 5D, I love using the sigma 10-20 on my 40D but obviously its not working on the 5D
so now the problem !! something wide for the 5D, there doesnt seem to be to many options either
the canon 16-35 is definitely what I would want minus the money issue but no luck there the money tree was blown over in a recent storm lol
so right now I am considering the sigma 12-24 ~610 bucks from amazon, or the canon 17-40L which is around 650 dollars
I will primarily be using this for landscapes, I am pretty sure that 17mm is wide enough since the 10mm on the 40D is 16mm so 1mm is not going to be that much difference. But what am I missing from 12 to 17 mm, obviously quite a bit but is it really necessary.
My guess is the optic quality of the 17-40 is better than the sigma. I have a 24-105 and 24mm on the 5D is plenty wide for pretty much everything except landscapes for me.
anyone have both? what do you recommend?
