    I'm a big fan of the Sigma 18-35, but with it vignetting at 5K at the wide end - is there any EF zooms that don't?

    I doubt any of them covers at the wide end.

    The full frame wides cover thoughout their focal ranges. Also consider Canon 11-24, Sigma 14-24, Sigma 12-24 and Laowa 12mm. Just shot with the Canon 16-35 f4 and it looked great at 16mm. Watch out for super wides because it is hard to use front filtration.

    43.3mm image circle worst case, Gemini is only 35.61 mm, so I think they will work.
