Talk to me about UWA zooms!
1

I've missed most of the chatter on this class of lenses (15-35/2.8, 14-35/4, 15-30STM), but now I find myself needing one.

First and foremost I need fast enough focusing for sports at very close range (indoor and out).  Gymnastics, BB under the net, freestyle BMX, kids in the bouncehouse, etc).  Lens will be used on the R6, (upcoming) R6ii and R5.

Secondary use will be for "environmental" sports shots from further away (skiing, mountain biking, curling, etc).

Tertiary usage would be for groups at events (indoor and out), environmental portraits (in and out).  Maybe a landscape or two, a rare widefield astro.  Maybe get tried on my R7 on occasion as a standard zoom.  These would be low priority though.

All of these lenses are on Black Friday deals right now.    Your opinions would be greatly appreciated!  Thanks!
