Lenses that keep me shooting APS-C
I've got a 6D and several EF lenses, but I still keep one foot in APS-C, the main reason being that there are a few very compelling lenses on the EF-M or EF-S mounts that have no close parallels or alternatives on the EF mount. The lenses that keep me with one foot in APS-C are:
Sigma 18-35 f/1.8 Art
Why? It's the highest resolving optic for Canon APS-C. 'Nuff said
FF alternative? the Canon 24-70II, at nearly 3x the price
Canon EF-M 11-22 f/4-5.6 STM IS
Why? Great image quality, small size, light weight and IS on UW focal range
FF alternative? Till the introduction of the EF 16-35IS, there was none. Still that new lens is 3x the price, 2.5x the weight and quite bigger
Canon EF-M 22 f/2 STM
Why? Inexpensive, small, light, fast and very good IQ
FF alternative? The 40Pancake, but that lens cannot be mounted natively on a camera as small as the M
Canon EF-S 55-250 STM
Why? Moderately priced, smallist, light, 3.5-stop IS and very good IQ
FF alternative? EF 100-400, but much heavier, larger, pricier and the IS is not as good
There you have it.
"That which is asserted without evidence can be dismissed without evidence."
The onus of the evidence is on the one making the claim, not on the one questioning the claim.
