    Am thinking of changing my 7D for 1D Mk.IV and understand that my beloved EF-S 10-22 won't fit.
    So, what do I replace it with? My other lenses are the EF 24-105 and the EF 70-200 2.8 so they are not a problem, just the 10-22
    Suggestions please....oh, and a request from the Chancellor of the Exchequer here at Salty Towers...aguements for and against changing from 7D to 1D...she likes to stick her nose in...Sad

    The EF-S 10-22mm is the same as the 16-35 mm on a full frame camera. as you have got L glass i would go for the EF16-35mm 2.8mm or the EF17-40mm F4 both good glass

    Must admit I like the idea of the 16-35 as it is 2.8 through the whole range, but the difference in price over the 17-40 is quite a lot to justify, but there again, I guess the 1D deserves the best? Ergo, I don't really want to consider other than Canon glass...or are there other opinions?
    Must earn some more brownie points with The Chancellor.Wink

    I used a 10-20 sigma with a 1Dmk2n, which at 12mm upwards worked well.
    I think Tokina make a 12-24 F2.8 that I was always interested in, to work with the 1.3x crop sensor on the 1D range.
    Maybe a wide prime lens might be worth investigating?

    Difficult one. I suppose it depends on what you are going to shoot? Do you need f2.8? or do you want f2.8? Not much point in a 2.8 lens if you are going to use it stopped down most of the time. For what I would use a lens of that length for I would never notice the extra speed and therefore could not justify the extra cost. The comment by arhb of considering a prime makes good sense.....usually a lot sharper too. As for dealing with the Chancellor, I would start by leaving Hasselblad price lists around, then when the bill comes in for the new Canon kit, nice surprise! No? Its never worked for me either.

    Sigma 12-24? or Tokina 16-35?

    In my case I would go for the Canon 17-40 over the 16-35 for the same reasons I have the 5.6 version of the sigma 10-20 not the f3.5 version. I hardly every use it wide open and it means all my lenses take a 77mm filter/ring.

    Putting my sensible head on for a moment (the Chancellor gave me a talking to) I have to admit struggling to justify the extra cost of the f2.8. I don not feel I am going to be standing there one day thinking, "If only I had bought the 2.8"
    Head rules over heart time, I think.

    Course you will regret it! Thatís just human nature. But a camera and a lens is just a tool, no different to a spanner. If it does the job it does the job. There is so much hype and marketing pressure with photographic equipment these days itís crazy. Why on earth do Canon paint the most expensive long lenses white? So that the aspiring photographers can spot the pros using them at sporting events etc. and want one.
    Tell the Chancellor that with the money SHE has saved on the lens, you will both go away for the weekend. Leave her in the Spa at the hotel and you go off and shoot some stuff. That will make her happy!

    There's the Carl Zeiss 21mm Distagon F2.8 prime. It's a killer lens.

    That's it then.
    A spanking brand new 17-40 has been acquired to accompany the equally spanking brand new 5D Mk.III.
    Nice to have something new to play withGrin
    Many thanks to an understanding Chancellor, who in 3 weeks time will be enjoying 3 days in Paris.Wink
