    I've never really shot landscape photos (or never really cared about ones i did shoot)...

    buy 10-22?
    rent 16-35L?

    I assume i'll want a circular polarizer? any other filters i should be interested in?

    http://www.lensrentals.com/ they actually have stuff in stock, and you can reserve lenses.

    since you're on a crop body, I'd buy a 10-22, or at least rent one.

    i didn't tell you i just bought a Hasselblad? :eek3:

    you'd rent the 10-22 over renting a 16-35 L?

    the pics i've seen from 10-22's make me wanna buy one. hmm

    for landscapes, yes... no need for the f/2.8 of the 16-35 and having those extra 5mm for landscapes would help out greatly... and they're both L quality glass, the 10-22 just doesn't carry the L badge because it's an EF-S mount. If you can buy it grab it.. it's a great lens.

    no kidding? I've never heard that before.

    so L glass is only EF mount?

    i think i'll pick up a 10-22 then. thanks, hombre.

    from everything I've heard, yes... they'll only give the L badge to EF mounts.. I'd imagine because "L" is their pro line, and the EF-S mounts won't work on their pro bodies.

    anyone got an inexpensive joint for the 10-22?

    lightly used might be okay

    I just picked up a 10-22 $675 is about the best price you'll find it for brand new with warranty, resale seems pretty good on that lens too don't think I've seen one used under $600 minus well just spend the extra and buy it brand new. The 10-22 wont work on a full frame camera
