I own both the Canon 10-22 and the Tokina 11-16. For outside, daytime use there is no comparison - the 10-22 wins all the way.

Do have any shots to back this up? I have used both lenses, but I never had both at the same time. My experience puts the Tokina IQ slightly ahead of the Canon, but either way they are both very good, and I think there is definitely a comparison to be made.

I've got some images that show the difference in flare, which was enough to convince me to stick to the Canon.

Tokina 11-16: shortest zoom range, very sharp, great build, annoying AF/MF clutch system, bad flare resistance, bad CA

the bad flare resistance can be a great advantage sometimes :)

the tokina 11-16 is the best of them overall for me.

After reading through all of the comments, I have definitely narrowed it down to the Canon and Tokina. Forget the whole "budget" and "not too expensive" thing I mentioned in the original post.

The biggest thing for me is overall sharpness. I will be using this lens almost strictly for outdoor landscape photography. With that being said, which should I go with?

For outdoor landscape work it has to be the Canon. When your field of view is 90º then you're going to find the sun is near the edge of your frame a lot of the time. With the Tokina you really are limiting yourself to shooting with the sun at your back, otherwise you're likely to find a high proportion of your shots ruined by the flare.

The Canon, on the other hand, is quite happy with the sun near, or even in, the frame.

So would I still be settling for good sharpness with the Canon?

Very good sharpness.

Okay sweet! I'm leaning towards the 10-22 because of the advantage it has with flare resistance.
I would still like to hear some more thoughts on Tokina vs Canon. Anyone have comparison shots with sharpness?

this compares all the UWA...you can see there's not a ton of difference between all of them when stopped down a bit...

That was a good review. It said at the end to only go for the Tokina if you really need the fixed 2.8 for shooting low light, which I don't do a ton of. And if I do shoot low light, it is in landscapes which I would use a higher f/ and slow shutter. :)

Probably gonna go with the Canon
