I'm thinking about adding a Canon 5D Mark II to my line up.
I am currently using a Canon 40D with the Canon 10-22mm zoom lens for my aerials.
Unfortunately the 10-22mm is an EF-S lens which is only for cameras with a 1.6x crop factor.

I was thinking the 'EF 14mm f/2.8L II USM' is going to be the way to go.

What lens are you 5D or Canon Full Frame guys using for aerials?

24mm 2.8 for video. No need to go any wider. Nice and light and cheap. I also use a step up ring for the 8 stop Vari ND.

I use the 20mm for most work, but sometime throw my 17-40, but I'd like the 24l.

Rhett..... I can't fly, but the Profi sure can.

If your mount can handle it go for the 24-70 2.8. If you need to shed some weight the 24-105 is nice also but slower.

If you insist on primes the 20mm lens is OK but soft in the corners. The 28mm prime is nice and the 35L prime is beautiful.

24L original lens is junk but the version 2 is nice

Oh my mount can handle it. Copterworks heli with a 25 lbs payload.
I already have the 24-70 2.8. It's the best glass I own!
I plan on using the 24-70 for video and standard photos with the MKII.

I'm also looking for a good wide lens to replace the 10-22 EF-S lens.

It's good to see what others are using.

Sigma also makes some decent glass. You can pick up a 15-30 3.5 for pretty cheap or the 20mm 1.8 prime. This one is very sharp at 2.8. They both weigh about 600 grams.

The direct equivalent of the 10-22 on a non-crop camera is the 16-35 ...
