Lenses / Re: Need help choosing a sharp wide angle lens
« on: September 09, 2014, 11:46:43 AM »
Thank you for all the good suggestions I'm leaning towards the 24mm 2.8 IS or perhaps a 17-40mm if I get a decent price on a used one. I do tend to use a tripod when I'm out doing landscapes, so it's not crucial for the lens to be tack sharp at the wider appertures.

Lenses / Need help choosing a sharp wide angle lens
« on: September 08, 2014, 03:53:52 PM »
I have been shooting more landscapes lately and I find that I am in need of a new wide angle lens.

Ever since I sold my 600D and got a 6D I have been wanting a new wide angle lens. The EF 28mm f1.8 which a used as a 50mm eq. with my 600D just isn't very sharp on a full frame. I borrowed the 24-105mm f/4 for a while and thought the performance on the wide end was ok when stopped down a bit. However, I rarely need the zoom and I would prefer something more compact. What are your opinions on the following lenses:

EF 24mm f2.8
EF 28mm f2.8
EF 17-40mm f4
Sigma/Tamron other wide angle options?

First and foremost I would like a wide angle lens that gives sharp and crisp images. I can spend up to 500USD, but affordability is a plus.

Looking forward to hearing your opinions!

Emil

If you need the 8fps speed and good autofocus go for it. But remember that anything above 800iso is pretty noisy.

A few have mentioned the 28/1.8. This may not be suitable for your needs; it is very much an 'art' lens ( pinching Sigmas title) and although razor sharp in the centre it really falls off mid frame. Even stopped down to f8 it can't match say the 24-105 mid frame. However if you want to shoot wide angle shallow depth of field, dreamy type shots it is excellent.

While I do agree with you, in my experience, the lack of corner sharpness is much less noticeable when using the 28mm f1.8 with a APS-C sensor.

EOS-M / Re: Canon EOS M3 in Q3 of 2014?

I was very close to buying a eos m with 18-55mm kit lens when it was around 330usd here in norway, but i decided against it. I'm still considering buying a 22mm ef-m lens becasue they are so cheap now, and then wait for the release of the next M.

What kind of lenses do you think the new potential eos m cameras will be sold with? A new version of the 18-55 perhaps?

Lenses / Re: Which lense now?
« on: April 08, 2014, 07:11:41 AM »
Google translate automatic language recognition tells me that lense is a Norwegian word. I didn't find this word for any other language I suspected of being similar.

I wonder how many Norwegians we have on this forum?

The norwegian word for lens is "linse", although the word "objektiv" is acctually more commonly used when refering to a photographic lens. "Lense"(with the second "e" also being pronounced), is a verb meaning "to empty something of water".

When it comes to the lens vs lense discussion I did some searching, and it seems that "lense" is acctually listed as an alternative spelling in some dictionaries. It seems however that lens is regarded as the only correct spelling by most native english speakers.

Consider looking for a used 28mm f1.8. I think it works really well with aps-c sized sensors, giving a equivalent full frame view of  ~45mm. I used almost exclusively this lens with my 600d.

How does one get such a clear picture of the milky way in an area with light pollution?

So the rumors were true! Interesting, although I'm not yet convinced. Looking forward to see how the auto focus performs.

EDIT:
The video shown here includes a comparison of EOS M vs EOS M2 AF speed. Seems a lot quicker

Best thing about this camera is that it matches a lot of the big white L-lenses  :P
