    Canon 5D Mk2 + 17-40mm F4L USM lens FOV question...

    Hi everyone,

    I am trying to work out what the FOV in degrees would be for a Canon Mk2 and a Canon 17-40mm F4L USM lens combo, set at 17mm. Can someone please be able to help me?

    Unless I post into the "NOT FOR CRITIQUE" section then the above doesn't apply.

    I couldn't even find lenses on the Canon Aus. site but the USA site has some specs and apparently at 17mm it has a 104 degree FOV.

    A 17mm lens on a full frame sensor will give you a horizontal FOV of 91.6 degrees and a vertical FOV of 68.8 degrees. Which means you could do a 360 degree panorama in six shots with 25% overlap.
