OK I'm moving from FF to 1.3x (5D2 to 1D3). I have 24-105, 50 1.8, and 70-200. Finding, not surprisingly, that the 24-105 just isn't cutting it as a "walk around & all purpose" lens... I really like the wide end of that lens on the FF camera. So, I'm on the hunt for a replacement...
I'm looking to spend $750-$1000 on one or two lenses, new or used. I've tended to use a zoom for a walkaround, though I have enjoyed having a 35L plastered to the FF camera for an extended weekend (so the 28mm on a 1.3x camera could work out, or the 24L). For the wide end, 20mm would be OK (ie 26mm equivalent) but my preference is to have a lens that gets me at least as wide as the 24-105 did-- so one of the 17- or 16- zooms.
In the process, I'm interesting it getting something faster than f4, and wider than the nifty fifty, for indoor no-flash family photojournalism-type shots. so I'm looking at 2.8 zooms, or complementing an f/4 zoom with a prime.
here are some options I'm considering, all Canon (I am open to other brands, though)--
17-40/4 + 28/1.8
24L markI (and get a zoom later)
20-35/2.8 (there's a beautiful sample on buy & sell board now!)
any other options you would consider? any one want to vote for their favorite, given my current lens & 1.3x camera combination??
thanks very much!!! --rowdy
