Canon 10-22 or Tokina 11-16 for this purpose?

Same here. Sharp across the board. I wish I had a photo on the LAN already that shows a shot at 16 @ F9 cropped of a buddy. Out on a RHIB all I had was the 11-16. I'm using the 11-16 now after owning one before (sold for personal reasons) and I love it out of the many UWA's I've tried which is doesn't seem like many have. I've tried the Canon, Sigma 10-20, Tokina 10-17 FE, and 11-16 and even the Sigma 12-24 on a Nikon.

F2.8 FTW...don't mind the FB quality. (1/20 F2.8 ISO 1600)

for those of you guys who have (or had) both, do you have any pics of the same subject/scene taken with each of these lenses?

I rented the canon to test it but never had two at the same time. There are some comparisons around here somewhere from back in the day when the 11-16 came out.

hollis_f has posted that before on the flare issue; perhaps if you searched his posts on the 10-22 topics; or maybe he'll post them again.

You'd think the canon was unusably soft from what people here are saying about it:

I dare you to try this with the Tokina! :p

Well, you can't, this was at 17mm.. but.

And yes, Frank Hollis' comparison is quite self-explanatory.

I don't know why some are saying the Canon 10-22 is not sharp across the frame. My copy certainly is, it has no-zilch-nada flare and what little CA occasionally shows up is a tiny fraction of the CA you get with the Tokina. In the image you included in your original post imagine those fluorescent ceiling lamps ringed in bright purple and green - that's what you'll get with the Tokina. Just my two cents.

It's not. Sharp enough. Tokina is just better in terms of sharpness. I'd seriously wait to get the version II. They seem to have addressed the flare and CA issues. Can't wait to see some tests

oh yeah, Canon can't beat Tokina's sun stars :)

Yeah, that's my one big beef with the Canon. I'm enthusiastically.. but impatiently waiting for the (long ago announced )Mk II version of the Tokina.

If EF-S lenses had red rings, the 10-22mm would have it!
I can not speak for the Tokina, but the Canon 10-22mm is a superb lens!

IMO the tokina's sunstars are ugly...
