why not keep the 50 1.4 and buy the 16-35 or 11-16, not having anything wider than 16 or 35mm is pretty limiting..

For your 7D, the toke has my vote.

I agree. On a 7D, the 16-35 would not be wide enough.

no one can answer but yourself:

do you need *ultra*-wide? if you do then 11-16 (+ something else, 16mm is *extremely* limiting).

if not, 16-35mm is fine (although I would get the 17-55 IS f/2.8 instead for way more usefulness).



5D3 and a few lens

FF or crop?

On FF, it's only the 16-35 and I wouldn't have it either way.

IMHO, even on crop (unless you have to have ultra wide) Basically, these two can't be compared one-up.


I mean, on FF the ideal is the 16-35, 17-40, 14L, 17 TS-E, or the Z21.

If on on crop, then you can't really compare the 16-35 to the Tokina or Sigma. The focal length are just different.
