Is there a better alternative than the Canon 10-22mm?

I'm looking into other wide angels since I'm thinking of parting with my 10-22 or should I just keep this and assume this is the best wide angle for my budget there is? I'm looking into spending $500 or less for a wide angle if it's even possible.

tokina 11-16mm?...or maybe the sigma 8-16mm to give you a wider look?....what's the main problem you're having with the 10-22mm?

I think the Sigma 10-20 f/4.5-5.6 is the only option under $500. At least as good as the Canon in my opinion.

I think canon's 10-22 is a good lens.

only other lens i can think of is the tokina 11-16, but that limits your range. theres also the sigma 8-16mm for really wide.

I would keep the 10-22 if i were you.

I'm not having any issues with the 10-22mm I just feel like I probably could have a wide angle for less. I just haven't touched this lens ever since I bought it because nothing makes me feel like I should shoot with it where my fisheye I love to play with. Maybe it's just a difference I see in the photos with my fisheye vs. my wide angle.

Your not going to get much a difference from any of the other UWA's out there. Just stick with your Canon, its a great lens.

The Tokina has a constant 2.8, but at these FL's, aperature is not a huge factor on shots.

well if you sell it, you'll loose money on it...

you'll sell it for say example... $600/$650 ?? thats how much a new Tokina is... so its pretty much a sideways move.

like i said, just stick with your Canon. its a great lens.

Yes, using the "search" button, so we don't have this thread 15 times a week. Get the Tokina.

I'll just keep the lens if the price for the Tokina is almost near same anyways..

Sorry LowrideS10 for the same nagging threads over and over. o.O

It's all good, it just has to be the most beaten-to-death topic on POTN. (except for maybe UV filter and hood usage).

Anyways...I've said this many times, so I won't bother typing out all my reasons...the Tokina is superior to the 10-22. If I was in your shoes, that 10-22 would already be in the B&S and I'd be looking for a Tokina.

get the sigma 10-20mm. ive had it with my 50D and it was amazing. The canon is over rated.

The Tokina 12-24 is a great value. I rented the Canon, but ended up buying the Tokina. It has better build and for the sizes I print, the image quality is great.
