Based on the majority of reviews I have read that compare the two lenses, that's pretty much the only good reason to pick the Canon.

And if you pick the Canon, the Sigma 10-20 is very close behind for much less $$$. The Tokina 12-24 is very nice and sharp, sharper than the 10-20, and competes well with the 10-22. Sigma's 12-24 is nice too, but for the price, unless you are planning to go FF I think the Tokina 12-24 is nicer. The Tamron 10-24 is the softest of all of them... love the versatility of the zoom range though.

If you are ok with losing 1mm on the wide end, I would strongly consider the Tokina 12-24 if the 11-16 is too short for your style of photography.

thanks for your input. I will have to look at the siggy. I really need an uwa for interior shots so the 12-24 wouldn't work as well i don't think. also I have the 15-85 which i'm pretty happy with.

There is another good reason. I find the flare on the Tokina a lot worse than the Canon. That, and the limited range, is the reason I'll be keeping the Canon for my everyday UWA.

I did notice that when reading all the reviews.

A few with this lens, which is one of my favorites. Mine is soft wide open, though.

Wow, those are some amazing pictures LSU. Especially the First 2.
I've had the lens for less then 24 hours and took it out this morning to take a few pics.
Noticed when I shoot into the sun it produces this flare. Is this normal for this lens? Anyone else have similar issues?

Just noticed the upper right corner. Is this what you call vignetting? How come its only at that spot? I shot in RAW, no PP except resized.

Pretty sure the black is from your hood being cocked to one side, (not on all the way)

The flare might be handled better if your hood is on right....:)

If the sun is in the frame then the hood will make no difference. This flare problem is the only bad thing about the lens, and the reason I'll be sticking with the Canon 10-22 for everyday use.

The flare complaints are sometimes over exaggerated in my opinion. I also owned the 10-22 and it also has flare issues as most ultra wides do! How often does one shoot looking towards the Sun? It almost sounds as if every shot taken with an 11-16 will produce flare.:rolleyes: It doesn't by the way!

See post 1917 for an example of a 10-22 shot, taken into the sun, with virtually zero flare. You may not like it, but it is an absolute fact that the 10-22 really does a lot better than the 11-16 in this regard.
