What is the widest lens offered for canon (by any manufacturer) that has an aperture of 1.8 or lower?

    What research have you done? This information is trivially available from Canon's website and all sorts of other places. – Philip Kendall Jun 21 '16 at 17:09
  • Hi Philip, not sure why you've -1'd this question, it hasnt been asked before and has worth. Have you considered that not all lenses that are (or have been) available to canon mounts are on the canon website? – Barney Chambers Jun 21 '16 at 17:11

    The downvote is for lack of research effort; your question states "offered by Canon" - if you mean available for EF mount, please clarify your question, particularly including whether you consider adapters acceptable. – Philip Kendall Jun 21 '16 at 17:13
  • You don't know what research I have done so that is a silly reason to downvote. I have edited my question for clarity – Barney Chambers Jun 21 '16 at 17:15

    @Barney note that "This question does not show any research effort" is the standard guidance given when hovering over the downvote arrow on any Stack Exchange site. – Please Read My Profile Jun 21 '16 at 17:16

This and all similar questions are best answered by looking at websites designed for the purpose. One approach is to look at vendors like B&H Photo, which offers convenient filtering. For example, Canon EOS EF or EF-S lenses classified as "wide" or "wide zoom" with an aperture of f/1.4. Or, use a website dedicated to the task, like the Neocamera database. For example, results for Canon mount, 24mm or wider, and f/2 or faster.

    As an addendum: Why not specific answers here? Because it doesn't scale well and it's impossible to maintain. What if some new lens comes out or a lens fitting the description is dropped? Who is going to go back and update all the answers? Experience shows almost no one — which gives us the end result of making information on the Internet worse rather than better. – Please Read My Profile Jun 21 '16 at 17:26
