Tokina 11-16 f/2.8 or the 12-24. I have the 11-16 and it is a fine lens on my 7D.

The 17-40L looks best on a full-frame camera...the 10-22 is the best for your crop. But if cost is an issue, the Sigma 10-20 f/4-5.6 is a great lens that won't break the bank.

Look like the Canon 10-22 could be the way to go.

I am quite tempted by the Samyang 14mm 2.8. Value for money is superb! I've just discovered these lenses and the 14mm seems to perform as good if not better than the 16-35!
For £250ukp that has to be worth considering, having said that a used 10-22 isn't that much more.....

14mm isn't wide enough for me. The point of an ultrawide is to get that ultrawide FOV. For me that doesn't set in til maybe 12mm. 11mm for me is ok, I'd like 10mm but sacrifices have to be made. 8mm on the siggy gets a little ridiculously wide...but will work for others.

These are the most popular choices:
- Canon 10-22
-Tokina 11-16
- Sigma 8-16

I own 17-40 as well and have found Sigma 8-16 more useful for extending wide range, tried Tokina 11-16 but was underwhelmed by rather limited range, also 11mm didn't feel like much of UWA in comparison.

Well at some point you'd also have to think about getting a FF body. For the price of a 10-22 you can get a 5D1 or a 1Ds1 and then use a more normal lens.


My imagine composition sucks. I need a heavier lens.

Take it from a UWA junkie... I own the Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8, Sigma 12-24mm f/4.5-5.6 DG EX HSM, Sigma 8-16mm f/4.5-5.6 DC EX HSM.

The Tokina is the best in the business, the Sigma 8-16 is the widest for Crop, and the Sigma 12-24 is the widest for FF.

If budget allows a 10-22 and a 17-40. They really don't overlap by that much and are both very good lenses. The L is a tiny bit sharper but not by a lot. I guess it depends what your next widest lens is.

Thank you Mike for your most helpful comment. I happen to think that my suggestion of a 5D is completely valid. You can pick one up easily for under $1,000, and the 10-22, which everone seems to be suggesting, is $900 at the moment.

Full frame would double the number of focal lengths covered, without the need for any additional lenses, and most importantly, provides an excellent wide angle solution at 24mm on FF.

The 5Dc is a VERY valid suggestion and makes a lot of sense.

If the 5Dc is valid suggestion... then you might as well sell the 7D and get the 5D2, no?

Well if its left field you want, this might qualify. I have a 10-22 for my 40D but also use a Sigma 15 Fisheye a LOT. On the crop it is not all that wide though but I like the mild distortion, usually...you can correct the it in LR and PS if that does not work for you. Price wise it is probably about the same as a used 10-22.

The one place I use it a lot is indoors for kids parties. The people out at the extreme edges/corners still look like kids, not watermelons. YRMV.

I have FF and crop bodies so the the Sig does double duty here. Maybe rent one for a couple of days to see if it fits your style. I got the Sigma because thats what came up on craigs list first and it has decent reviews.
