^There are so many comparisons and info online, it's ridiculous. Just do a simple search for "Sigma 10-20mm vs Canon 10-22mm" and read the existing abundance of info available, both here and on external sites.

i think the consensus is that you will not be disappointed in the sigma but the 10-22 is just over the top awesome if you can swing the few more bucks that way. i know i hardly ever take my 10-22 off just because i love shooting with it that much.

I'm going to vouch for the EF-S 10-22mm as well. It's on my camera about 60% of the time.

However, I will say that when I was in your position, I had a very difficult time choosing as well. I ultimately went with the Canon mostly for the simple facts that it's a Canon--which has traditionally given me a little more peace of mind than third-party manufacturers, and I could afford it. I do believe the Canon is of slightly higher quality, but that comes with the price difference. I'd say that if you can't spring for the Canon, but can afford the Sigma--go for it. You'll be happy to finally get out and shoot wide with a great lens. Any difference there may be isn't monumental, and you already can't lose because they're both highly reputable lenses.

I own both the Canon 17-40 f/4 L and 24-105 f/4 L. For general travel photography I find that I use the 24-105 most of the the time and if I need to go wider, I'll use the 17-40. I use a 5D Mark II now, but bought the 17-40 when I was shooting with a 30D and thought the combination worked great. Both lenses offer great image quality and by most expert reviews, the 24-105 f/4 L and 24-70 f/2.8 L you mentioned in your original post have almost equal optical quality and with IS even though the 24-105 is one stop slower than the 24-70, the IS easily makes up for that one stop.

For greater details on these lenses, read the reviews on (external link).

Good luck, Jeff

I'm another Canon 10-22 owner and mine was my most used lens, I love it. But I have since brought a 15-85 and it now seems to spend the most time on my camera out of all my lenses. It does not have the width, but I find it a more useful as an all round lens.

Never make the same mistake twice, there are so many new ones, try a different one each day

I just bought a Sigma 10-22, it hasn't arrived yet but I have been able to play with one already and it was AMAZING on my 450D so far. I am a completely novice photographer but the wide angle that it allows is stunning to me so far.
