Widest angle lens I have now is Canon 17-40.

I'm looking for something else maybe a bit wider that doesn't break a bank.

What do you guys think of Tokina 16-28 or Tamron 15-30?

I see consistently great reviews regarding the Tamron. Nikon reviewers regard it as superior to the 14-24, which is very high praise. Easy choice: get the 15-30mm.

The Voigtlander 15mm is highly regarded and they are set to release a 10mm and 12mm in e-mount later in the Spring.

I just went through the UWA debate. Ended up with a Rokinon 14mm. Cheap, crazy sharp, and ugly moustache distortion. I find the manual focus and aperture super easy this wide. It would compliment your 17-40 really well.

Canon 11-24 (if you don't need f/2.8) or Nikon 14-24 (if you do need f/2.8)

Voigtlander has a number of interesting 10, 12 and 15mm primes coming soon, too - optical performance remains to be seen.

TS-E 17 and TS-E 24 are also great options if you like to shift and stitch, for an ultra-wide field of view with even greater resolution.

those two are out of question, one is $3000 and other is 1900.

Hard to beat the price/performance of the Samyang/Rokinon 14mm. Cheap, very sharp, has an aperture ring. Main negative with the lens is worse-than-average distortion, but easy enough to correct in LR. It comes in a native e-mount, but I recommend getting the Canon version so you can use it with the ND Throttle.

$298.90! http://www.bhphotovide​o.com …REG&ap=y&m=Y&A=​details&Q= (external link)

I've got the Tamron, and i really want to test it first on my Sony A7R, i just need to get A7R II one day as i liked A7R and A7RII is a tad better, won't regret it, and i hope i can find buyer to it with another body too so i can afford A7RII.
