I am looking for a wide-angle lens for my Canon 30D to shoot landscapes and streetscapes. I have a budget of about $500-600.

Any suggestions?

I am not a big fan of 3rd party lenses.

Any thoughts on Canon 10-22mm..? Please share.

Thank you in advance.

I love my 10-22 for travel. Very sharp, nice colors, very low barrel distortion, and f/3.5-4.5 is just fast enough at this focal length for low-light handheld, like inside many churches. Here are a few shots in Amalfi, all handheld. You can also check out the flare in the first one.

Though 10mm with DSLRs is not really a true ultra wide, still I like the longer focal length used to show the church.

A 16mm FOV is definately ultra wide. Canon groups focal lengths 20mm and under as ultra wide.

To the OP: The 10-22 is awesome. It's sharp, reasonably fast for a UWA lens and is very wide. If I could do it again, I may have gone for the Sigma 10-20mm. That lens produces identical-quality images with the Canon, has arguably better build and is cheaper. You really should consider it.

If you want an ultrawide made by Canon, your only real option is the 10-22. It's a bit over your budget, especially if you consider getting a hood, which I'd recommend as well.
Other than that, you have the 15mm fisheye, 14mm f2.8, 16-35mm L, and 17-40L, all of those are above $600, except maybe the fisheye.

Superb lens. Buy it and never look back. I bought it.........twice!

(sold my 1st copy when I went full frame, bought it back when I got my 40D!)

I know..I know..!! I may have to up my budget if I want the 10-22 lens. Sounds like it's a winner.

I'm not a fan of 3rd party lenses either, but I opted for the Sigma 10-20 as I wasn't going to be using a large percentage of the time.

So far I'm very pleased with the results.

I know you said you weren't big on non Canon. And I am biased towards Canon glass my self. But in your price range on a crop body...if you have some time to try a Tokina 12-24...do it. It is built like an L. It is f/4 throughout it's zoom range. It is wide and it is in your price range. The 10-22 is a great lens but more bucks. The 17-40 L is wide on FF but not on a crop body.

If there is a local shop that has the Tokie ask them if you can try it for an afternoon with a deposit.


Lotsa stuff, running outta room and a wife...I keep looking at her and wondering??? :lol:

I just bought a used Canon 10-22 last Sunday for $575. I think the going price for this lens used is around $600. There seem always be a few for sale on the for sale forum for this price as well. I was either going to buy a used Canon or the Tokina as my budget was in the $500-$600 range as well.

I stumbled upon a local seller who was selling the Canon lens used, so I jumped. Keep in mind that the Canon does not come with a hood and the Tokie does, so you will have to drop about $30 more for the hood if you go with the Canon.
