f/2 would be good for star photogs. You can get some bokeh out of an UWA. This is 14mm at 2.8

how do these charts compare to canon charts?
However, comparing MTF charts from one manufacturer to another is largely meaningless due to differences in the way they measure it.

I see the BIF guy, running along the edge of the forest chasing birds! haha!
Yes...except BIF guy's wife would be the one running with the gimbal, while BIF-guy manipulates the joystick from a lawn-chair.
There are a lot of rumored names for the new small EOS bodys.
A guy from Canon told me today, that the name "EOS B" is possible.
It sound realistic to me, because the small EOS bodys are a new product line. But we will see at the 22th.
But I want a camera between the 5D Mark III and 1D X, a new EF 80-400 IS L, a 12-24 2.8 L oder a 16-35 2.8 III, a 7D Mark II with CF card slot to replace the TC´s, a better build EF-S 17-55 2.8 IS and a lot more. And the EF 17-40 L from 2003 needs a replacement too.
Might finally sell my 4x5 if the 45mm is great.
Speed not a concern... strangest thing to ask for on such a lens. I would live with f8! After all these are used for deep focus photography and on tripods or in studio. T/S is about increasing depth of field.
I really like the perspective of a normal lens...
I believe that perspective is only affected by moving the camera, not by changing lenses.
"Many will say that focal length also determines the perspective of an image, but strictly speaking, perspective only changes with one's location relative to their subject."
"In other words, switching from a "normal" lens to one with a greater focal length at the same camera location will have no discernible effect on perspective."
