Most out door landscapes don't call for <18mm, shocking to most people.

Agreed.. i almost never use the 10-22. The 15-85 is my favorite landscape lens.

i think it's really person/scene dependent

i think those that say landscapes must be shot with an UWA are just as off as those that say you don't need to use an UWA to shoot landscapes...

I didn't say you don't need an UWA to shoot landscapes, I said that most landscapes don't call for an UWA, there's a difference. There are absolutely some scenes that are UWA only. There are also a lot of "landscapes" that are shot at 70+mm.

Let me add to the fray. I have a 10-22. At 10mm it is a fun lens, providing some unusual perspectives on just about anything you point it at. At 22mm it is a moderately wide general purpose lens. Family gathering types of things. It provides enough width to get the whole room and enough DOF to see everything in the shot.

Landscape is a photographic style, not a focal length. I am quite sure someone of a mind to could shoot a nice landscape with an 600mm f/4 IS II.

The HST is one of the longest lenses ever produced. It has a focal length of 57.6 meters (no, not millimeters, METERS). That is 57,600mm, and it does quite nice land(space)scapes. If anyone wants to work out the 35mm equivalent, the sensor is 48 square feet. Not sure of the aspect ratio.

I have the Sigma 10-20 and I love having a UWA lens - I borrowed a friends 10-22 and that sold me, I just went with the sigma for personal reasons. That being said I love having a UWA for when in tighter situations being able to fit so much in the frame, sure if you get close it has distortion but that is fixable, and I like the looks UWA give. Its all personal opinion and I love having one in the bag.

Out of curiosity, if you are willing to share, what were your reasons for going with the Sigma over the Canon or Tamron or a different Sigma?

I have thought about the Canon 15-85 as my walkabout lens.

Would there be an increase in photo quality over my kit 18-135?

The extra width combined with a photo quality increase maybe the ultimate purchase factor.

I had been trading messages with a women who also has a Canon 60D. She purchased a Tamron 18-270 lens for her walkaround lens and her Flickr pictures look very nice with that lens. I have been thinking about that lens as well. She also has a Canon 10-22 but she says she uses it very infrequently.

I wanted to try out a sigma lens - wanted something in the 10-20 range - that is the reason i went with the siggy over the tokina 11-16 - Also came with a good warranty / padded case / lens hood / filters for cheaper than the canon would have been used new. Also the sigmas build is nice and solid. The canon i have used before and it is awesome but i like the feel of my sigma better, just personal preference,

My sister uses the 15-85 on her 60D and loves it. It's pretty much an ideal walk-around lens for a crop body as long as you don't need a wide aperture.

I have a sigma 18-250 that I use with my 7D, but last time I went out I forgot to also take the 10-22 and although 18mm wasn't bad, it was definitely not wide enough for me. I don't know about the 15-85 vs 18-135, but to me the super-zooms are actually more of a specialist lens than an all-round 'walk-around' lens - for when you need to go light, might need wide to very long but don't mind sacrificing a bit of IQ and slower AF.

Of course almost any modern lens will look good on Flickr (or a monitor) IQ wise.

Looking at your Flickr, for a specialist wide angle, I'd get the 10-22 for the flare resistance.
