    I just couldn't help it. It was there and it was fast and I had 21MP to play with.

    #1 and 6 are fantastic Adam. Amazing how good those ISO 6400 shots look. And who says you can't use the Sigma 30 on FF?!

    I wonder if you still need to sell your Sigma 30 1.4. It seems to be a lens made for you.

    i do love that lens. been thinking about trying out the canon 35 f/2 since it's only $240. i think i can deal with f/2 if it's sharp enough. til then i think i'll just give myself room to crop and use the 30 because a battery grip is the first on my list.

    other than that i'm thinking very seriously about selling the 17-55 and getting the 16-35 instead. i really seem to use the 17-55 at 17 the most and i can't remember the last time i used the 55 end.

    A cheaper alternative would be the 17-40 since you can use the extra iso headroom to compensate for the 1 stop difference. I think I may go that route since 24 still doesn't feel wide enough for me.

    Theres a good amount of distortion and vigneting on the 17-40+5D I, i would suspect the same for the 5d II, i love my 17-40, but i can't say i use it under 20 very often.

    That's good to know... does the 16-35 not have the vignetting problem?

    i didnt know that, interesting. i've only usd it on a 30d/40d and i loved it. i didnt realise that distortion and vignetting was ever an issue with it.

    I've never minded the distortion or vignetting of the 17-40 on the 5D, its much less noticable than the 24-105, although my copy of the 24-105 is a bit sharper on the wide end.

    17-40 on the 5D....



    17mm...




    22mm...




    19mm...
