There are two lenses that are available in the super wide range for the Canon mount, the Tokina 11-16mm F/2.8 ATX and the Canon 10-22mm F/3.5-4.5. The next 'budget' prime is the Canon 28mm F/1.8 while those with deeper pockets could opt for a 24mm F/1.4L and a 14mm F/2.8L. Both of these lenses are supposed to be razor sharp, so which would work better on a Red shooting a mix of indoor / outdoor narrative?
Tokina: $603 @ Adorama. Fast @ 2.8, but it has a lot of distortion (which can be fixed in post if you have the smarts and the shot by shot lens settings logged). Ending at 16mm leaves a lot of ground if your next lens is the 28mm. Faster would make it better in low light situations and shallow DoF artistic situations.
Canon: $710 @ Adorama. Slow @ F/3.5-4.5 with near zero distortion. Probably not as artistic due to the slow speed but would require no distortion correction in post. Reaching out to 22mm would close the gap to the 28mm budget prime.
There are not a lot of Red One produced images out there yet, so early adopters are going to have to base decisions on descriptions and still images that can be found online.
