I think I might pick up the Sigma 1.4x TC as well at the same time to give me a little more reach on my long end as well

I just got the 10-20mm and the 1.4 TC. The 10-20mm is a great lens. I love the HSM. The lens is pretty sharp at all ranges. I haven't used the 12-24. But I say go for the 10-20. I've been very happy with my purchase.

6 months ago I would say get the glass - But now after upgrading my XT, I would say get the 30D. Then after you get the 30D stick to glass purchases only :D

Maybe I'm on the minority side here.

If you have some funds now, get a used 20D. Then sell your XT and get the lens later.

I'll doubt that you'll use you WA much at all but with new camera, you'll see a difference.

I wanted a WA for the longest time and got the Tokina. It was great for those few times that I used it and I always try and use it more and more. But most of my shootings rely on the long or portrait lenses and the WA keeps sitting in the bag.

However, I know for sure I'll miss it if I end up selling it.

This post hits home too. I love my 10-20 but it doesn't get used a whole lot. You're either a UWA person or you just kind of are. Not a lot of middle ground. If you like going wide, you may get more enjoyment out of your UWA than I do.

Actually I was thinking of getting the UWA and selling the XT and getting a USED 20D to hold me over till there is something new since the cost wouldnt be very much. Or when i can get a new 30D

Well i dont do Macro all that often either but I wanted a macro lens if I get that urge that day to go shoot some bugs. Same goes with any lens..I wann get my focal range covered. getting this 10-20 then the 100-400 then I will be done with purchasing glass

ehhhh...Yea would be nice to have all kinda stuff. but in reality my setup I have plus adding the new UWA and the 100-400 I really cant see the need for any other lens.

That's is a good plan :) but becareful, it's more expensive the higher you move up. :lol: .

I heard you about Macro. It's cool and "trendy" but there's not enough bugs in my yard :D. I traded my 50/2.5 because I didn't use it enough but I can see that I'll probably need a Macro lens later on (someone is looking to trade his Sigma 50/2.8 Macro for the 50/1.4.. so tempting hahah).

I really think that would be your best bet. That way when you get some nice glass you will have a pro body to go with it and by then you will know how to use it.

Once you have a 20D in your hands you will know what we are talking about!!!!

I considered those lenses before buying the Canon 10-22 EF-S. I am glad I spent the extra money.
