17-55 versus 17-40 on 50D (or other landscape options)
Sep 29, 2010

Hi everyone,

I've been doing a lot of research and trying to find the next lens for my 50D.

Have the 50mm f1.4 which has been amazing and captured some great shots but looking for something a little wider as a 'walkaround' lens. Currently leaning towards the 17-40 f4L based on a few factors, including the fact that this could be used on a FF if I upgrade to a new body later on.

That said, it's a tough call to work out what lens to go for so just wondering if anyone had any thoughts on these two lenses or if there were any other options worth considering.

Cheers,
