Thank you very much for all the replies! Looks like it's down to the 15-85 or the 10-22. I'm a little hesitant on the 10-22 because it seems to be an ultra wide. I've never used anything wider than my 18-55.

I appreciate the the tips on AC as well! We will be going in Sept. 2014 and I need to get a lens and do some practicing before we go.

I felt the same way you did...you'll be amazed at how close to subject you can get (and still get all in frame!). It's a very useful lens to have in the bag.

There's a saying that with the 10-22; you have to be careful not to get your own feet in the picture... And it can be true at times! it's an awesome lens for the American southwest national parks. And I'll echo what others have said; before I bought mine, I too rented this lens for national park trips.

10-22 would be great with your Rebel.

Here's a suggestion:

Rather than BUYING a lens, why not rent one (or two)? This gives you a chance to try before you buy! I've done this many times over the last five or six years, for a variety of lenses!

Canon Wide-Angle @ BorrowLenses (external link)

Also, make sure you DO get the insurance; inexpensive way to ensure you don't buy a lens if something were to go wrong!

This is an excellent idea. I could get both lenses and see which I like best. Everyone seems to love the 10-22 and that many people can't all be wrong. I still have reservations because here in East Texas we have zero epic landscapes. If I bought one, it would be a travel lens only.

Don't fall for the wide angles are for landscapes trap. How you shoot and frame your scenes will matter the most. You've got a pretty versatile range with your 18-55 and 55-250 although you are missing the very wide perspective so the 10-22 many are suggesting would fill that gap however if you find you mostly shoot towards the longer end of your 18-55 or the shorter end of your 55-250 then do you perhaps need a higher quality lens in that range?

The lenses you have shouldn't be too bad when stopped down to at least f/8 or so, landscape shooting can be somewhat forgiving of lenses in that respect if you tend to stop down.

So I guess what I'm saying is if you feel like your 18-55 isn't wide enough go for the 10-22. If it is, do you want to get something higher quality than the lenses you have to replace one of them?

I used to have the 10-22. But I rarely used the wide end. My Tamron 17-50 (non vc) gets the most use on my 60D. I like the IQ.

Now I haven't been to Antelope Canyon, but I have shot crop for 6 years and been in narrow canyons like that. And you definitely want an ultrawide to compliment your kit lens. As others said, the 10-22 would be great.

i went to Zion last year and i loved using my Canon 10-22. I used it more than my Tamron 28-75. The Canon 10-22 is a great lens for landscapes. I'm now full-frame and I do miss my 10-22 lens.

They're not just for taking in more scenery in one shot. Learn to use the distortion they have at the wide end and use that to create interesting leading lines in everyday still life. Instead of standing back and capturing all I can in one shot I move myself closer into the scene, fill my frame with more of the subject and use the distortion to create interest or leading lines to a point of interest.

I also have the Tamron 17-50 non vc and highly recommend it. I haven't used the 10-22 so I can't comment on that but I do have a tokina 12-24 that was my go to lens before the tamron. I doubt you'll be unhappy going with an UWA since you already have the 18-55 and it'll give you many more composition options.

I ran a Tokina 11-16 on a cropped body Nikon a while back. It did a great job for me. And on rare occasion when I needed it, it had a constant 2.8 aperture. Really nice lens for the money IMO.

No doubt about it, for me my absolute favorite UWA lens for landscapes on a crop sensor camera is the Canon 10-22, or check the Sigma 10-20, Canon if you can afford it, you won't regret it, I have many posts using that exact lens :)

Good question. So many choices........So little money :)

I love to experiment and this sounds like fun.

We will be going to Zion and Bryce as well as AC. I have seen many photos on this forum in those places shot wide and am excited beyond words.
