Well not much to add to the title. I am joining a trip in Scotland looking for baskers ( I know they might not be there).

I am wondering what lens would work best for a cropped sensor 70d

Off course I mean basking sharks. Must be the bake off that my wife is watching

Absolutely a 10-17 will work and if you are having a good day out there in Scotland, you can even push an 8-15! I just got back a week ago from a basking shark trip off of the Isle of Mull and used a 10-17 all week. There was a couple of times that I wished I had the 8-15!!

 

Good luck.

I was going to tease you about cooking and eating sharks, but you caught it yourself.  Funny typo, though.

All right. The tokina is my standaard wa lens. I have the port extension for the other lens but almost never use it, strange edges even with a diopter.

I might miss them since I will be there at the end of the season.

My experience is 10-17 if you are going to get reasonably close.  Great lens.  10-22 with a +2 diopter if you need the range.  The diopter really sharpens up the corners.  A second to Steve's 8-15 recommendation.  Tack sharp on a crop, but the 10-17 is close to it's equal.
