    What's everyone using to get those ultra wide shots? Specifically for the URSA Mini 4k...

    I've got a Sigma 18-35 and I'm looking for that little bit extra on the short end. I'd rather go in the direction of something dramatic if I'm going to be dropping serious coin, not dropping 2mm and going 16-35 canon...

    I'd be looking at zooms as well, not primes, at least for an initial purchase.

    This is what I've had a look over, wanting to know if anyone has shot with these?

    Sigma 12-24 f4 - this is probably a front runner, given I've got the 18-35 and I like shooting within the same model line.
    Canon 11-24L f4
    Canon 8-15 f4 (fisheye) - really would like to see some examples from this.

    What you got?

    No consideration for a Tokina 11-16 or 11-20?

    Ah true, I completely forgot about this lens.

    Thanks for that, I'll add that to the list of research to be done..

    This. Frank has a post that referred to then as the poor men's Angie glasses. I would go for the Tok 11-16 2.8.

    No. The Tokina you're referring to is the 28-70 f/2.6-2.8, which is full frame and based on the Angenieux 28-70 f2/6. The Tokina 11-16 has nothing to do with Angie. It's a modern lens designed for APS-C.

    I have a rehoused GL Optics Tokina 11-16mm with PL mount which I use on my UM4.6k, and the cine version of the Tokina 11-16mm EF mount which I use with my BMPCC and metabones speedbooster.

    It's faster than all those lenses on your list, has minimal distortion, and is sharp edge to edge. It really is the best value ultra wide you can get for Super35 sized sensor.

    Oh yes! +1 for the Samyang/Rokinon 10mm.

    GREAT lens.
    VERY little distortion for a lens this wide.
    Super monster useful lens for shots you just can;t get any other way but an ultra-wide.

    My bad then. I'll take that back but still consider the Tok 11 - 16 2.8 for a wide. Thanks Fuego for keeping me straight with Franks post.

    Samyang will release a new lens this month. First review looks promising. it's not in the 10 to 12mm range but 14mm..Maybe that's not what you are looking for but I'd say 14 is a lot wider then 18mm. The thing with ultra wide like 10,11 and 12mm is that you won't be able to get the best image quality when using nd filters on the ursa. For example, the popular hoya ProND's recommand not going wider then 16mm before it starts to show artifacts. But maybe you wanna stop a wideangle down to f11-f22 anyway, not using filters so everything is in focus. Just keep this in mind. Anyway..I'm drifting of here..the Samyang is a 14mm f2.4 premium lens (great in low light), here is the link to the review..it's serious bucks, but half the price of the 15mm milvus from zeiss: https://www.ephotozine.com/article/s...s-review-30229
    I got my Tokina mk1 11-16mm for just 200 euro secondhand, so you should get that one pretty cheap, great lens.
