Hi, I currently have a 7D body mostly with zoom lenses but trying to find
some alternative prime lens, and the L lenses are a bit out of my budget
and would like to get some opinion on other alternative primes with very narrow DOF
and preferably wide angle, anything below 50mm i guess
current lenses i have:
EF-S 10-22mm // EF 70-200mm f2.8 IS II // EF-S15-85mm // EF 50mm 1.8 II
Thanks in advance!
You would love the 16-35 on the 7D, it's not super wide, but it's like a 27-55 FF equivalent, which is a pretty useful range. Also, the bokeh is so circular it looks amazing on an aps-c sensor. It's a great lens (only zoom I kept out of 24-70, 70-200 2.8IS), definitely worth playing around with.
Now I personally love the Tokina too, very solid build quality, great price, and super wide on an aps-c sensor. I honestly think you would have more fun with this lens since you have an APS-C sensor. Either way, I've used both (on FF and APSC) and I think you would enjoy either of them, try renting them to play around with.
