I own both the Canon 10-22 and Tokina 11-16, and before I bought either I tried a friend's Sigma 10-20, but I couldn't get both sides sharp at the same time.

The 10-22 is the lens I'll take if I'm shooting outside during daylight. The much bigger range and the ability to shoot without flare makes it by far the better choice.

I've kept the Tokina for shooting wide star shots - where the f2.8 really is useful and flare isn't as much of a problem (but still can be a problem). I'll also use it if I ever want to shoot dark interiors where tripod and flash are forbidden.

Im really happy with the 10-22. Decent range, very flare resistant. Distortion is managable (especially with lens profiles). Its my main use lens (and my only underwater use lens)

I had the Sigma 10-20 f/4-5.6 and got very good results with it. I just recently sold it in favor of a 5D & 17-40. Here's a gallery of shots I took with the Sigma (external link).

Your gallery has so may beautiful shots with that lens. Thanks for linking to it.

Tokina 11-16mm is nice, sharp, fast, well built. Downside is flairs badly and has a lot of CA (but easy to correct)...
Canon 10-22 is nice, sharp, more range, very flare resistant..doesn't come with a hood.
Sigma 8-16mm is nice, sharp, extremely wide, but can't use filters (which is frustrating).

I just noticed there are two sigma 10-20's... one fixed 3.5 and one 4-5.6.

Is one of them more recent? I actually don't think I remember comparing two different sigma versions of the same focal length...

I have the newest version of the Sigma 4-5.6 and it's pretty much my favorite lens,I love that lens,

yes,a faster fixed aperture lens is always great,

but I really like the IQ from this lens.

I ended up picking the Canon 10-22 and have never been disappointed or regretted it. It just takes some time to learn to use it effectively. (I would love to get the Canon 8-15 too.) If your plan is to keep a crop body for some time, I would highly recommend it.

Ya... I mean it kind of makes it quite difficult to use this lens for landscapes, doesn't it? :(
