Thanks for the comments. I have a while to go before I purchase either lens, so more votes are appreciated :P.

I voted for Sigma because that is what I own. I agree with several posts here, you really can't go wrong. Is there much of a price difference? If so, that may factor in. Either way good luck and don't wait too long, the lens is too much fun not to have around!

I have never tried the Tokina so really don't know which is better. I am more than happy with my Sigma so another + for the 10-20. I would imagine that you won't be dissapointed with either.

I loved the Sigma when I had it, great lens. HSM was a plus, but it seems to me that each lens' benefits / downfalls balance each other out.

It comes down to which you want more: wider, HSM, smaller; constant aperture, larger, longer reach.

Ones personal choice, but both produce equal images. I'd say the Canon is the better option, but thats up to you.

I think you wrote sigma in your image, instead of tokina 12-24mm.

sigma discussed here is 10-20mm, which I'll add is a darn fine lens!

Seems like the Sigma is getting more votes than the Tokina each day.
That seems like the right choice, I will decide by looking at some sample photos and keeping in mind the majority voted sigma.

Well, given the current voting, the margin of error in the poll is +/- 12%. So, it's a statistical tie, and the Tokina could actually be preferred. If it were a much larger difference, or we had around 1,000 votes, you could say 'the sigma has a majority.' but as it stands now, it's a tie. (Within the margin of error, the true distribution could just as easily be 57% Tokina, 43% sigma as the 55/45 split shown in this sample).

Yep - statistically. But a lot of people (including myself) have voted even though they only tried one of the lenses. So that's another error source to be considered. Personally I would go to a shop if possible and try both out.

Maybe the image was made with the Sigma 12-24 and not the Tokina. The important thing is that the image represents the differences in coverage of the various focal lengths. So, assuming the FL are exactly the same, the Tokina image coverage at 12mm would be the same as the Sigma 12-24 at 12 mm and the Sigma 10-20 would be the same as the Canon 10-22 at 10mm.

He said he has the Tokina ;)

Or maybe should have clarified the image was just for reference?
