I don't have a clue as to the weather sealing on the Sigma 8-16 mm UWA. Personally I try to avoid having my camera out when it's raining.

I suggest the Sigma 10-20 as well. That is in your price range. :)

+1 for the Tokina, its a great lens and very sharp.

I got it used from the forum, you have to be pretty quick and check it most of the day but it pays off in my opinion. Its a great lens

What about the Samyang 8mm f3.5? It performs very well optically (external link) and you can get it new for around $250. Several distributors have picked it up, so you can find it under other brands (Vivitar 8mm, Bower, Rokinon, Pro-Optic etc.). Just bought one myself and would say it is no slouch - some pics (external link).

The Tokina 12-24 F/4 is a great lens. It is razor sharp. If you don't need the speed of the 11-16 it might be worth your consideration. It's also available and with in your price range. What are you going to use it for?

The nice thing about both the Tokina 11-16 and the 12-24 is they are constant aperture all through the zoom range. They both are also really well built.
