Hi, I'm still new in photography and cameras, May I have your suggestions on what is the best Wide Angle Lens for my Canon 600D. I plan to join Batanes Photo Safari on 2013. I'll be needing the best lens. Thanks

^ What he said.

The Tokina 11-16f2.8 is a good alternate.

Another Canon 10-22mm alternative: the Sigma 8-16mm.

It's a little wider, less expensive, and very good: http://www.photozone.d​e …eos/515-sigma816f4556apsc (external link)

A good cheaper option is the Sigma 10-20mm.

I have one and love it! Some pics it took-

There can be only one - Canon 10-22 is easily the best.

Build Quality wise and Image Quality wise. Tokina wins the constand AND wide aperture.

  • Build Quality - I suppose it might be important, if I were planning on using it as a hockey puck. However, I buy a lens for the image it produces.
  • Image Quality - the Canon wins by a million miles as far as flare is concerned. It wins by a nose as far as chromatic aberration is concerned. It's a dead-heat as far as sharpness is concerned.
  • Wide Aperture - useful for shots where the extra fraction of a stop makes an important difference to shutter speed or ISO. Virtually meaningless as far as depth of field is concerned.
And those opinions aren't based on what I've read on the Interwebs. They're based on the fact that I actually own both lenses!

10-22mm because 600D has a cropped sensor so wen you use a 10mm on it, it will be like 16mm on full frame DSLR's.


Canon R6 / RF 28-70L / RF 70-200L / RF 15-35L / EF 50 f/1.2L / EF 85 f1.8 / EF 100 f/2.8 Macro USM ... and Tons more
