Re: Wide angle dilemma


You did not say what you wanted to do with the wa lens.

I have lots of WA. 12mm Laowa, zeiss 15mm, 15mm Laowa macro shift, voight 15 v2, canon rf16/2.8, 17mm canon shift, rf15-30, canon ts24, zeiss 25/2, canon ef24-105 and more. I plan to buy the 9mm Loawa and adapt to ef and the ef 15mm laowa shift because I am often really close to mountains.

I bought the zeiss lens for night shooting. Fast, sharp, and hard stop at infinity.

I have the EF ts17 and EF Ts 24 and ef24-105f4 for my go to landscape lens. WIthout shift I end up with bowed trees or throw away resolution to fix. The EF-RF flip in adapter lets me have one nd set up for all EF lens and its great for me. The ef laowa 12 is when the mountains are quite close.

I have the Rf16, RF15-30, and RF24-105 f4-7.1 for backpacking for weight. And either carry 15-30 alone or 16+24-105 if there are far opportunities.

On rare occasions when I shoot buildings, its with the shift lens - eg architechure.

My advise for landscape, is pick your lens for range, weight, speed, shift (functional stuff) rather than IQ because f8 and beyond (landscape) they are mostly indistinquishable. eg the 15-30 weighs 1/2 as much as the 14-35 but neither are shift so I would not use them much if weight was not a factor. Thus the lightweight for hiking and shift for close to the car.
