Please make this CR2 comes true
+1 i need this lens to go with my new mark III, 24-70 II, and 70-200 IS II. I had to give up my EF-S 10-22 and am currently without an UWA!!!!

Please make this CR2 comes true
QuoteYour current 5DII + 40mm f/2.8 pancake makes a great package. That is a very sweet lens and only $149. Baby and family photos will look just as good with the little 40mm as with the big 24-70/2.8. The 40mm is great for landscape too (if you like the focal length). Also, Rebel T4i with kit lens for $599 can do a lot.
I agree. Best of luck.
Yes! the 24-70 II is a special lens. The 24-105, while a fine lens, doesnt come close to comparison in image quality. Also low light focusing will be much nicer @ 2.8. It is THE finest zoom in that focal length available. .
I agree. I just did a lot of research on the 24-70 II...balanced against primes. I already own a 50mm f/1.4 Sigma and the Canon 85L...so I was considering puchasing the Canon 24mm L & the new Sigma 35mm f/1.4 or the new Canon zoom. Either way I would be spending the same amount of money.
I had sold my Canon 24-105 back in the spring to buy the new 24-70mm...but then there were all of the delays...and this GREAT Sigma 35mm appeared out of nowhere. I was torn. The price of the new zoom really put me off.
In the end I bought the new Canon Zoom. It is REALLY sharp and many times it is just great to have that zoom range in your hands an not be changing out primes. Way more interactive..with trade-offs.
The 24-105 is a good lens...but I was never WOWED by it.
Check out this comparison of it to the new 24-70mm II:
..from a sharpness and DOF the new 24-70mm blows the 24-105mm out of the water. (but the 24-105mm is a very good zoom for the money).
I LOVE primes....but I am a little wowed by this new zoom. Could just be the honeymoon period...but my feeling is that it is very prime-like, both in contrast and sharpness (even wide open)....and...unfortunately, you are DEFINITELY paying for that privilege! I do not think you would be unhappy if you bought this lens. I know that I am very content with the decision I have made.
(SteenerMe...I just noticed that U and I have almost the EXACT same range of lenses...no wonder I agreed with you! LOL.)
5D3 + 24-70 II + 70-200 II
Slight modification: 5D3 + 16-35 ii (wideangle hole filled) + 50L or 1.4+ 70-200 II
50L is a valid substitute but I think 1.4 is competent without breaking the budget.
Never been a big fan of the original 24-70L and haven't yet tried the new version II... But people swear by both versions and it may just come down to shooting style /focal length comfort zone.
There is absolutely zero comparison between the 14 and the 17TS-E, they are so different anybody not sure which they need doesn't need either, seriously.
The 14mm is severely compromised in IQ, but gives amazing fov and very good AF and yes you do need to focus a 14mm. It really shines for things like skateboarding, snowboarding, and other moving and dynamic subjects.
The 17 is a very different tool for a very different job, it can be shift stitched to give the fov of an 11mm lens with a close to 50mp sensored image, it has the independently configurable tilt and shift so can be used well for interiors, architecture and landscapes, in landscape format but also in portrait format. It has practically no compromises in image quality but it is a pain in the butt to use with filters, probably the biggest drawback of the lens (plus the stupidly big gearing on the tilt movement).
They are both very good lenses with tons of creative possibilities but anybody wishing to choose between the two as a next purchase that doesn't know what they need, would be very well advised to rent both at the same time for a long weekend, one will live on your camera, buy that one.
whoah...slow down there guy. obviously, I'm not sure what I need at this point. take a deep breathe.
Yes, I like UWA angle shots. I actually like the distortion of an ultra wide angle. I'm curious about the the TS-E and it's flexibility and sharpness. I like having AF so the 16-35 and 14mm prime are candidates as well. We're looking at $2k give or take a few hundred dollars. After my latest purchases, I won't be buying anything for a while (unless I can find a way to buy my wife another Louis Vuitton AND get her to agree on another lens purchase! hahaha)
I agree I should probably go and rent/borrow. Heck, I might want the 8-15 fisheye! I really don't know.... hence my inquiry under the forum topic "Advice 5D3, wide angle".
LOL. I laughed hard at the part when you have to get your wife a LV bag so you can get another lens. It's virtually the same for me.
