    Default Need help choosing a wide-angle lens (Canon)

    Hi folks,

    Can anyone give me advice on which wide angle lens should i go for with my 40d?
    - Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM
    - Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8 L II USM
    - Tokina AF 11-16mm f/2.8 AT-X Pro DX

    I personally like the Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM but will need more advice from you folks.


    thank you for your kind opinions.

    Note the 2nd one is not exactly an ultra wide angle on your cropped camera. The rest are.

    Tell us more about what you intend to shoot in UWA. Really depends on your needs, each lens has its own merits.

    On a 1.6x crop body If you only want normal wide angle for group photo...EF 16-35 mm f/2.8 L II USM will be good.

    But if you want ultra wide angle, take the Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM...

    Er, and why might you be bringing this up? The 10-17 FE is not even a rectilinear lens; it serves a different purpose from the other three lenses that the threadstarter is considering.
