.FryYeah, I have some money put aside for a good lens. Any ideas on what I should get? I've heard the Tokina 11-16 is pretty good for filming.
It really depends on what you plan to do with it, there is no one lens that does everything. if you intend to shoot a lot of really close stuff then yes the 11-16 is great. if you intend to shoot low light then yes 11-16 is great. more versatile in terms of lighting conditions due to the lower f stop
if you dont intend to shoot low light then I would argue the tokina 12-24 f4 is better. its just as sharp IMO and it has a longer zoom range so its slightly more versatile. plus its cheaper.
I own both, and they both do different things really well. it just depends on what you want to do with them.
If you have no idea what you want to do then maybe go something like the tamron 17-50 f2.8 it has a much more versatile zoom range, and has the ability to shoot in low light. you just cant get really close to your subject and keep them fully in frame (if you are jsut starting out and have nothing else this is the lens i most highly suggest as you will get the most use from it)
it really depends on what you want to do and what your personal preferences are though
Aidin954Yeah, exactly why I said it wouldn't matter if he kept a crop :p
It can actually be used on a ff camera, you just have to use it at 16mm. i have it and i use it on my 5d quite a bit
