Half Way To Nothing:
Hi all,

I have just got a 5d3 after a few good years with a 50D. The Sigma 10-22 is APS-C so it's going on ebay.

I have the 24-105 which is a great lens and the 24mm is wide. But the 10-22 was wide.

So, the question for those have either, which would you do?

A)  Zoom Option, 16-35mm f2.8 mk2

B)  Prime Option, 24mm f1.4

C) Cheep Option, Keep the 24-105mm f4 and get the 50 f1.2!

Thanks for looking..

You had a 10-22mm lens on APS-C - how much did you shoot in the 10-15mm range?  That's 16-24mm on FF, so you can gauge your own need/use of that focal range...

17-40? One of the best values in L land.

Depends on your budget.

The 20mm prime is smaller, lighter... and just as good (if not slightly better optically) as the 16-35/2.8L(ii)

The 17-40/4 L is good.  I've played with both... you have to be very picky to discern any quality difference in real world shooting.   The extra stop, the extra little wideness... fits my way of shooting better.

Its all compromise...decide whats important... go with it.

Zeiss 21 F2.8 could be another thought.  I went that route then snatched up a 14mm Samyang for the times I need even wider.
