I got mine to use with the 1dmk2... But when I then added the 1ds it immediately gave me a headache!

saved a load of dosh by swapping it for the in theory inferior 17-40.... Which I still have..

the hunt for a great 20mm ish still goes on though... I also added the Leitz 21 which was a great lens... But a pita... Now I use the canon 20 with the lens profiles in the 5dmk3 it's actually quiet good.. I do think that in reality anything wider than 20mm is excessive... What we could with is a new 20-35. Bit more moderation might lead to a very good lens.... Hmm good thread topic.

according to photozone this new 16-35 probably peaks around 20mm

So did the 16-35 F2.8L II, for me anyway. 20-24 was very nice.

As one would expect, since it's close to the middle of the range.
