    No Tokina seems like an oversight.

    He says himself he rarely goes over 24mm on his 5D which is roughly the same as 11mm on the BMC so the Tokina is perfect for that.

      The Sigma at 8mm looks rad-wide

        You think? I was suprised (did not think it would be THAT much of a fisheye look as on the Cannon 8-15mm.) But I don't know all that much either. Great comparisons to the 7d and 5ds.

          The sigma looked pretty striaght to me, sometimes I wish when testing a wide they didn't always shot a whole room or a building but use it for something closer to the cam preferably human.

                That's what I thought, not really a good idea though. He says he'd rather have a WA lens tested by shooting really close to a human rather than shooting a building or something where you can much better see lens distortion.

                All I'm saying is sticking a WA lens in someone's face will show perspective distortion. It won't really give you a good idea of what type of lens distortion your have. Shooting a brick wall or chart will. Perspective distortion has little to do with the actual distortion of the lens and everything to do with proximity to the subject. Too many people seem afraid that just because you use a WA lens that when you shoot people with it they will look weird.

                  I don't shoot portraits with wide lens :P not a big deal for me, gonna use the wide lens only for landscape, city, and some different angles. the rest... the 24mm will do the work. And remember, because of the crop factor, you will be using the center part of the lens. less problems, either sharpening, vigneting,distortion,etc...

                    Canon give really a wide impression , could be what you need, especially in small place...

                    Not sure how much confident i should put in this picture comparaison but the canon seem the sharpest with good contrast. I know quality of the picture will suffer but im wondering how much success you will get with a post production lens correction on case you want?

                    Anyone could comment on the qulity of the canon?

                      For me the major prob for the Canon -> fisheye & Price :/

                        It's good be justified in a certain storytelling context, but I hate this as well. Im only considering it because of the limitation of BMC FOV and knowing when myself, i like to have sometimes a wide shot to etablish a relationshop with character and environment.
