The best UW zoom option for Canon APS-C sensor cameras today is the EF-M 11-22 STM lens. The reasons are at least six:
1.) The M camera/lens combo is smaller than the EF-S 10-22 lens alone
2.) The M camera/lens combo is less expensive than the EF-S 10-22 lens alone
3.) The EF-M 11-22 STM lens has IS
4.) The EF-M 11-22 STM lens has STM for noise-less video and smooth video focus
5.) The EF-M 11-22 STM lens takes smaller filters
6.) Optically the EF-M 11-22 STM lens is every bit as good, if not better than the EF-S 10-22 lens

F/16 is diffraction territory on Full-frame. F/16 is even deeper diffraction territory on APS-C.

What advantage was there in choosing f/16 over f/8? The latter will give a sharper result.

I think I was going for a longer exposure at the time. I found f/11 to give me the sharpest results for the Wigma.

If you don't have an eos-m though it's not that good...

I'd say Sigma 10-20 is much more useful on crop cameras than Rokinon 14mm - both are optically good, but at such wide angles you really need the zoom flexibility to be able to frame your shots (you can't "zoom with your feet" with UWA lenses used for landscapes). On FF, Rokinon becomes more interesting, as it provides much wider FOV, so in principle you can "zoom" by cropping (sacrificing some resolution).

Read No. 2 again:

"The M camera/lens combo is less expensive than the EF-S 10-22 lens alone"

...meaning, you could buy an M camera and the EF-M 11-22 STM for a combined price of less than the EF-S 10-22 lens alone.

you could read his 2nd post where he says the 10-22mm is too expensive for him

the two lenses he's looking at are between 350-425

the only places i can see to buy the 11-22mm are on ebay...with the lowest being 445...plus say 225 for a eos-m original...and you're looking at 670...considerably more than the other options

Tokina 11-16.

The problem with wide-angle Tokis is that they tend to be flare and purple-fringing monsters. And they don't go away with stopping down.

Another interesting choice, the Tokina 12-28mm f/4 http://www.bhphotovide​o.com …_28mm_f_4_0_at_​x_pro.html (external link). I'd consider it if I didn't need f/2.8 for low-light photography

Once again, the Tokis, including the 12-28, are very poor when it comes to PF. Lenstip called that lens's PF performance, "so dramatically bad". If you look at the pix in the Lenstip review, they are utterly atrocious.
