Currently using a 5D3 and 5D2 with a 35L, 50 1.4 and 70-200 2.8 VR2
I would like something wider than my 35L. I borrowed a Canon 14mm VR2 for a recent wedding and LOVED it, but to buy it outright, it's a pretty expensive purchase. And from a business point of view, I'm not sure if it's a good ROI.
I've used a 17-40L in the past (for landscape photography only) and really didn't like it. I'm worried that the 16-35 will produce similar results (muddy corners, not that sharp, poor colors and contrast), and it's also easily double the price.
I've considered the 24-70 (both VR1 and 2), but I don't think 24mm is wide enough for tight spots. Not to mention it would be overlapping every lens I currently own....and the price is higher than the Canon 14mm on the used market.
Is my only affordable option a Rokinon 14mm? At that point, am I better off taking my chances with a 17-40L? Being limited to f4 isn't a big deal, especially on a 5D3.
