17 is not as wide as 10, so no.

Thanks, I didn't think so. But still newish to this business so wanted to be sure.

Canon 10-22 mm is really good lens .Not that other third party lens are bad.
Check the price difference and see if it's worth to buy Canon over other competitors.

You will be very satisfied with Canon.
Check out my website below. All of my wide angle shots were taken from Canon 10-22.

By the looks of it, it's about £100 difference, so I think I'll be going for Canon! :)

Good choice. You won't regret it.

At the moment I just have the kit 18 - 55, 40 pancake and a 250mm so nothing really that wide. Oh right, okay, so what advantage would I gain by having a 17 - 55 over the 10 - 22? Is it as wide?

The advantage of a 17-55 over the 10-22 depends on how you use it. As I said before, 10mm is VERY wide compared to your 18-55. That width in landscape photos, makes horizons appear as specks in the distance when they really aren't. If you haven't got an interesting foreground, you can end up with an awful lot of your shot containing boring emptiness. Things that appear 10 feet away through your 18-55 will look 30/40 foot away through a 10-22 at 10mm focal length. That's what I'm trying to explain.
It's not so easy to get great shots with an 'ultra wide' A bigger frame requires more interesting things to fill the space up.
Don't get me wrong, the 10-22 is superb, it's the focal range which is hard to utilise in many circumstances.

The 17-55 would be able to do just what your 18-55 can presently do. It'll just do it a little bit faster and the end results will be a little bit better.

The 10-22 will be completely different to anything you currently own. It will open up new opportunities for shots you couldn't possibly take with your current gear.

I absolutely LOVED my Canon 10-22. Sad that I had to let it go (went full frame). Just got the Canon 17-40 f/4.

Thanks for all the replies! Especial DreDaze, that link was useful. I think I'm set on buying one now as I want to progress my skills, so it'll be a nice little challenge for me!

You need to learn about the Lens Photo Sample Archive sub forumattached to this one. You can search there for virtually any imaginable lens to see lots of photos taken with it and commentary from users. (One of the previous responses pointed you toward the specific posts regarding the 10-22 and the Sigma.)

You need to be very specific searching that forum. For example, there have been two or three versions of the Sigma 10-20mm with the variable aperture. I think the first one lacked HSM, the current one has it. There also now a more expensive Sigma 10-20mm with a non-variable f3.5 aperture.

There are a number of ultrawide angle zooms (UWA) to choose among.

Sigma 8-16mm
Canon 10-22
Sigma 10-20 HSM
Sigma 10-20/3.5 HSM
Tamron 10-24mm
Tokina 11-16/2.8
Sigma 12-24 (actually a full frame lens)
Tokina 12-24/4

IMO, the Canon 10-22 is among the best optically. It's got great image quality and is exceptionally flare resistant. It also has USM and decent mid-grade Canon build quality.

I rank the Tokina 12-24 second best optically. It's also got really good image quality and is pretty flare resistant. If anything, it's better built than the Canon, and a lot less expensive. Doesn't have USM or the equivalent, but still is plenty fast focusing.

I haven't tried them all, but among the ones I have, I'd rank the Tokina 11-16mm third. It's probably a wee bit sharper than the Tokina 12-24, equal to the Canon. Built the same as the Toki 12-24. However, it's rather pricey, has a very narrow range of focal lengths and is pretty prone to flare... all trade-offs to get f2.8, which I don't feel is all that important or useful on an UWA lens.

I also tested the Tamron and the Sigma 10-20 variable aperture when I was shopping. Though I think the Sigma now offered has had some revisions, so probably differs from what I tested.

I ended up buying the Tokina 12-24mm. But 12mm was wide enough for me and I wanted a fixed (non-variable aperture) lens... this and the Toki 11-16mm were the only lenses offering that then. There is now the Sigma 10-20/3.5, too (haven't tried it, but have noted that it's more expensive, larger and heavier). You and many others might be fine with a variable aperture lens... It's mostly only a problem if using manual flash or studio strobes, which I sometimes do.

Have fun shopping!

If you read my original post, I said I'd had a look but couldn't find anything for the 10 - 22mm Canon. So you need to read what's been posted before hand. But thanks for the input anyway.
