8-16 and 11-16 are pretty much specialized very-wide lenses. You can take pictures of people if you stand back at least 6-8 feet which means they don't fill up much of the frame. I would not want either as an only lens when I travel. That is where the 20-24mm ends of some of the UWA options come in handy. That's no ultrawide, just wide. SO it can work for more standard looking photos.

If you just want a pretty wide lens to travel with, I'd look at the 15-85. 15mm is quite wide for most kinds of photography, it has IS, ring USM and then covers the whole wide-normal-medium telephoto range.

Owned both, ended up with Sigma. 11 was not wide enough for me comparing to 17-40 lenses which I already have, had AF issues on my 7D and plagued with CA and flare.

Another 11-16 owner here.

And I agree that f/2.8 is very useful for indoor.

One here and very happy so far with the Tok

One more question, how is EF 10-22??

Mine went faulty after 3 years!

Hence the Tokina now in my lineup ;)

Far better flare handling than the 11-16 and (from images I've seen online) the 8-16. That was enough to make me keep it for my normal UWA for use outside in daylight.

Not everyone needs to shoot at 2.8, the sigma is a cracking lens, but i chose the canon 10-22, its really sharp, great with CA and the contrast on it is really nice :)
