So few lenses for full frame? Am I the only one?

Totally absurd statement

They are certainly lacking ultra-wides, I ended up with the Sigma after sending back 2 Canon 14mm, but so few choices in general. Every lens that has a zoom range I'd like ends up being for APS-C only. I assume they will need to wake up soon because the 6D is probably a game-changer for Canon and more people will be buying glass. Bill

This is the most absurd statement I've heard in a while. With a few exceptions (the 17-55 f/2.8 EF-S comes to mind), generally there are a lot more lens selections for full-frame than for APS-C. If you want to find a rectilinear 14mm equivalent lens for APS-C, it would have to be 8.75mm focal length; good luck finding that.

Especially for ultra-wides, full frame has a ​whole lot more ​selections than APS-C.
