What super-wide-angle (less than 18mm on a crop Rebel body) lens delivers the best bang for the buck in your opinion? I basically wanna save some cash and would even consider a fixed manual focus from an off-brand provider if I don't have to burn all my cash ;) Suggestions? Its for landscapes and I do have a tripod, IS is not really needed for that, isn't it?

Tokina 11-16mm is great with my xsi, and the 2.8 is awesome for low light/indoor.

Ah, but he said "under 18mm on a crop body", so only the first 4 and the Sigma 8-16 qualify :)

18mm is 18mm, regardless of camera. :rolleyes:;)

So what do you mean by "less than 18mm on a crop Rebel body"?

Do you mean an 18mm lens which is 29mm equivalent on a crop body, or do you mean 18mm equivalent on a crop body, which is an 11mm lens?

He means he wants a UWA, which he defines as less 18mm (probably because that is where his kit lens starts so he wants a lens wider than that), and he is clarifying that he intends to use it on a crop body as opposed to a full frame body.
