I really like my Sigma 10-20mm. I think it is a great lens for the money. My wife was so impressed with it that she bought one for her camera.


6D, 5D, 7Dii, Eos R and too many lenses, flashes and aux. gear to list!:cool:

My last post was an hour or so before I got my Sigma in the mail, now that I've used it, I recommend it more. Great and sharp lens. Very solid performer for the money. You won't be disappointed in the 10-20!

I just sold my Sigma 8-16 in favor of a Canon 10-22 from Adorama. The Canon fit better with my other lenses (16-24mm is a big gap between the 8-16 and my 24-105L) and I like the extra bit of light, but 8mm is fun. I could see myself back on here someday looking for another 8-16. :o

Canon 10-22 used or Tokina 11-16. Those are the only lenses I'd buy in that range.

Tokina is great


Canon PowerShot S100

The next one in line for me will be

Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8

im in there with you on this one...

i may own a 24-105L but i wont buy another lens that wont go down to f2.8 minimum...

so the tokina is on my list
70-200 2.8 (not sure what brand or which one as this is a hobby)..

i just find f4 and up just not good for me as im mostly sports and at most times lower light... and my f4 and up lenses are hurting me

Sigma 12-24mm HSM, amazing IQ, even full-frame compatible. I've used Tokina 12-24 II too, which is also a fine lens, but Sigma is the better lens. I happen to have one for sale at FredMiranda :p (selling because I have two copies) http://www.fredmiranda​.com/forum/topic/10742​43 (external link)

Loved my Tokina 11-16 on the 50D perhaps even more than the 17-40L on my 5D. Very, very sharp, and nothing brighter at the angle.
Only thing with these big UWA lenses on the crops...you have to have a hotshoe flash, due the bad shadows with the inbuilt flash.

Another +1 for Tokina 11-16 if you want "UWA" =)

Nikon, then Canon, then Nikon again. But I still love POTN over NikonCafe. :p

Not sure what I should be looking at getting. These are the options I've been looking into, just looking for feedback, or alternate suggestions. Thanks!

Tamron 10-24
Tokina 12-24mm
Sigma 1020mm
Canon 24mm 2.8
_______________

I have the Tamron and it is not performing that good: the sharpness is not really there although i had it checked. I have tried the sigma 10-20 f/3.5 and it is a real deal: sharp, solid build quality, it h-just feels good.
I am also using a canon 28mm f/1.8 which i use for street photography. It is not wide enough on a crop body to be considered as a wide angle.
Have you thought about the Tokina 11-16 f/2.8, I have the opportunity to shoot with, it is also a nice option but the zoom range is limited.
I would definitely go for the sigma 10-20mm f/3.5.
hope that helped you in your choice
