    Hey guys,
    I just received my 5d MkII, setup with a Canon TS-E 90mm (only lens I have) for product photography. I'm going on a study abroad this summer and was looking for a Wide Angel lens to buy for the trip. I will be going through Paris, Rome, Athens. It will be mostly used for architecture and sculptures. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    The 17-40mm F4 L is a very nice wide angle lens and is quite reasonable for such high quality. The 16-35mm F2.8 L is also good but a fair bit more expensive for that one extra stop.

    If you are really serious about architecture shots, you might consider a wider TS-E, I think 24mm is the widest one they make.

    Being an EF-S lens, that is not an option for the 5D.

    Yes, but the original poster does and I didn't want your post to be confusing to them.
