I'm going to be using a 7D ( or 7D MKII if i'm patient enough ) i was planning on getting a 17 - 40 but then i'm also thinking of getting the 24-105.

So i thought you replacing the 17-40 with the 10-22. In your opinion what would be the best UWA zoom that won't go past the price of the 17-40?

It's going to be used for event coverage, video, and almost anything i can see fit to do with it.

17-40 is not wide for a crop... it's not much wider than the standard 18-55 kit lens.
Quality would be clearly better, but range is not.

Best wide for a crop is the Canon 10-22.
Tokina do decent alternatives.

+1 I love the 10-22 on a crop body.

I like my Sigma 10-20 quite a bit. But I think the canon 10-22 is nicer, just not sure if the extra $170 is worth it.


T3i, Sigma 10-20, Sigma 30 1.4, 18-55 kit, 55-250, YN-565, a few books, some software, and a desire to get good.....

my canon 10-22 is one of the reasons I'll never sell my 40D and most likely will get an other crop once it dies beyond repair. Awesome lens.


40D, 5D3, a bunch of lenses and other things :cool:

I think the 10-22 is the best. The other alternatives are really good and cheaper, but if your looking for the best, 10-22 it is.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.

Check out the Sigma 8-16mm.
PhotoZone liked it quite a bit. I've had mine for a couple of years and I really like it (external link).

http://www.photozone.d​e …eos/515-sigma816f4556apsc (external link)

The Sigma AF 8-16mm f/4.5-5.6 DC HSM may be the new star in this lens segment. It's very sharp across the whole range straight from the max. aperture. Lateral CAs are also very well controlled. That's quite an achievement for such an extreme ultra-wide angle zoom lens! If you're into architecture photography you will notice some barrel distortions when using the 8mm setting but that's actually a general problem in this class and at 12mm it shows less distortions than the competition actually. The biggest issue is the amount of vignetting at the widest setting but that's not really a surprise because the inherent amount of natural vignetting is unavoidable at such extreme focal lengths. However, it's still a good idea to avoid the max. aperture to tame the light fall-off to some degree.

Same here. Great image quality, comes with a hood and a case that the Canon does not and is between $200 and $300 cheaper. I couldn't be happier with mine.


1Dx - 5DIII - 40D - Canon 24-70LII, 100L macro, 135L, 16-35L, 70-200 f4 and 100-400L lenses

- "Very good" is the enemy of "great." Sometimes we confuse the two.

this comes up every few weeks. Canon 10-22 or Tokina 11-16. Depends whether you favor flare resistance or speed more.

I have the Canon 10-22 and I love it on my T2i. It's the only one I've tried so I can't speak for the others.


I've got one of those flickr (external link) accounts, too! I'd list my gear, but it's nothing exciting.

10-22 hands down

10-22 for everyday UWA bliss.
Tokina 11-16 2.8 for Astro-photography and night time wide angle bliss.

I have the Tokina, however, I believe owners of both think this way.

I have a lot of fun with it, however, for some reason I keep wondering how much better the 10-22 would have been. The difference between 11-16 is quite small too.
