  2. I suppose that this lens should be recommended specially for FF cameras. In bodies with crop factor the 10-22 should be the best option, isn`t?
     
  3. Assuming it is a real improvement of the last model, this will be a dream UWA lens. Judging from the recent future i.e. 16-35/2.8 II and 85/1.2 II, I tend to suspect it will.

    Happy shooting,

  4. Why do they call it an Ultra-Wide Angle Zoom?

    You can't really compare these lenses. The 14mm is a very fast prime lens about three times the price of the much slower 10-22 zoom lens. Of course the extreme wide angle of the 14mm is designed for FF. However I do use my 14/2.8 (a much less expensive Sigma) regularly on my 1D2 body as well.
     
  6. I am honestly not sure WHAT is the point of this lens. What was wrong with the 14/2.8L-I?

    Not enough profit, so re-release with an increased price?

    I guess a 10/2.8L would have required too much engineering?
     
  7. And with the $2200 price tag that Amazon had the other day, it's a bit too pricey.

  9. weather sealed, lead free glass? shaper, better resolution? Well, one thing for sure is better to have more choices/updates than none.
