Chaulk up another vote for the Tokina... I personally have it while my brother-in-law has the Siggy... The 2mm is a nice bit of extra width (from what I have seen), but my brother-in-law likes that I can have a constant aperture... Perhaps we should swap glass... Hhehehehhe...

We both like what we have... Since I have the Tokie, I'll give it my vote... If my brother-in-law sees this thread, I'm sure he'll chime in a vote for the Siggy... Both are fine UWA glass... You won't be disappointed with either...

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.

Correct. The image I submitted was one I have had on file for a long time and I did not take. It merely serves as a reference for the respective focal lengths.

See what Ken Rockwell has got to say about both lenses.

Sounds like Ken recommends throwing in $200 more to get the Canon 10-22 instead.

Ken Rockwell says the Tokina is better than the Sigma, yet more votes for the Sigma here...

Ken Rockwell certainly has his detractors, so I'm not sure he's the final word. I went through this same ordeal recently, and the reviews seem to be split pretty evenly. All things being equal, I went with the 10mm. Hey, its 10 mm! I thought the build quality of both were very good, and certainly better than the Canon. But optically the Canon is great. Toss a coin.

Here are my findings http://www.pbase.com/l​ightrules/exvdx (external link)

Both have their respective strengths. When I had a UWA, I opted for the Sigma for its 10mm, ring HSM/FTM, and slightly better overall optics. But the Tokina certainly has its perks, and I'm looking forward to its new sibling (16-50) to be released. I think it will set the new standard for 3rd party APS-C standard zooms (and its price will reflect this).

Also here is Photography Monthly's recent test of UWAs http://www.pbase.com/l​ightrules/pmtestapr07 (external link)

It's pretty much a wash - take your pick - I was impressed/swayed by the build quality of the Tokina.

Sigma wins then. I will take the purchase some time in May along with the Canon 70-200 f4L .
