A&P Dilemma...

Discussion in 'Lifestyle' started by coughlin's law, Oct 1, 2007.

  1. I'm looking to purchase a wide angle lens, and I've been reading countless articles on various lens for Canon. I've heard of vingetting, distortion and being soft -- the problem is, I am a sharpness fanatic.

    I've looked at the 10-22mm (recommended for a 350D) the EF 35mm F/2 and the 17-40L and I'm not completely sold on what fits the 1.6x crop body. I'm trying to find a good lens that will help me with indoor and outdoor, involving buildings. So details are very necessary...

    I read Fredmiranda.com quite frequently, but I don't know what's going to be suitable for my 350D.

    Any input, thoughts, recommendations welcomed.

    havent we had this thread before?

    24mm or less, particularly for indoors.

    10-22 should have you pretty covered, you could get a 35 f2 for fun after that.

    you will also need a good tripod, any decent lens is damn sharp if you stop it down enough.

    10-22 is pretty much the best in it's class for a wide angle zoom if you have a 1.6x body

    another option would be the 14mm 2.8L or the 15mm fisheye, anything over 20mmish on a crop body isn't going to be that wide
