Hey guys I would like some input on what would you guys recommend me to do. Here is the story. I have a Sigma 10-20mm F/4-5.6, I love the lens but I find my self using it maybe twice a month. Now I would like to sell/trade for a Canon 20mm F/2.8 because I feel like I would use it more just because of the fact that it will work better in low light conditions and it will be more sharp but obviously not as wide. What do you guys think I should do? Keep it or sell it.

Thanks

Here is a couple of photos I have taken with the sigma.

Only you can decide. If you feel like faster aperture would get you more use, then go for it.

Sharper? Doubt it. I think the Sigma is a better lens. Low light? What do you shoot that you need F2.8 shooting at 20mm??

Perhaps a better lens would then be the Tokina 11-16. You get some zoom, you get f2.8, and the lens is very, very sharp....

Unfortunately the Tokina is way out of my price range since I will only be getting around 350-380 for the Sigma

That may be true but the different between f2.8 and f4 is only one stop. I am not saying it isn't a difference, but it isn't a huge difference.
