Thread: Wide Angle Lens

  1. #1

    Default Wide Angle Lens

    I am thinking of buying a wide angle lens. At the moment i only have Canon EFS17-55 IS USM

    EF16-35mm f/2.8L II USM
    Angle of View
    (horizontal . vertical . diagonal) 98~54.74 10'~38.10810'~63

    EF-S10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM
    9710'~5430' . 7410'~3750' . 10730'~6330'

    EF17-40mm f/4L USM
    93~4920' . 7030'~34 . 104~5730'


    Between the EF16-35 and EFS10-22 is only approx 1 degree wider so it doesnt make sense to pay the extra ?

    BTW, not considering other brands.

    The 2 EF lenses, the angle of view is calculated based on the view mounted on a full frame camera.

    The EF-S lens, the angle of view is calculated based on the view mounted on a cropped camera.

    So knowing this, now a question for you, which lens has the widest angle of view, when mounted on a cropped camera?

    Erm. You need to read beyond the calculations and understand how they are derived instead of blindly copy-pasting. If both of these lenses are used on a crop sensor body, there's a MUCH bigger difference between the two.

    Do note that u are still on APC sensor (1.6 crop): - Choices 1 and 3 are FF lens, it won't give u the ultra wideness u desired as only the center portion is used. You will end up having a narrower fov than ur current 17-55..

    I will go with EF-S10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM or if $ is a concern; Sigma 10-20 or Tokina 11-16

    I like your answer, perhaps give a quiz to the TS at the end of this discussion.

    It is not the L thing that tells you it is FF. It is the EF designation that tells you it is FF.

    HUH.

    bro u clearly need to familiarize yourself with the canon lens line-up man.

    given the 3 options u listed, only 1 is a UWA on crop and that is 10-22.

    i am not a canon user but i suggest TS to try out at shops like J316 first before concluding?

    i would invest in a f2.8 for a long term thingy correct me if i am wrong

    I think what some seniors have commented is that those UWA for FF when used on my 7D (1.6) will no longer be UWA. So only options is 10-22 ...
