I have the Canon 10-22mm lens and think it's a great lens. How if I could just get the lens to think I was a great photography everything would be perfect. What I am saying is that as good as the 10-22mm lens is, it has a pretty steep learning curve, so be sure to take a second lens along with you on your trip. Something like the 17-85mm lens would be a good walk around lens for sight seeing.

Exactly what I use on vaction or day trips.

The 10-22 is my favorite lens; I have a 70-200 2.8 and a 50 2.8 for my 20D and 50D. I would not part with the 10-22 for the world. This lens is the primary reason I'm not using 5D or 1D series camera yet; I don't want to mess with something that works.

Here are a few sample shots from the past few years:

My 10-22mm is one of my favorite lenses. When I first got it, I went out and took pictures of beautiful landscape vistas and when I got home, wondered why my pictures looked like crap. It's because I took pictures of beautiful landscape vistas. My problem was, I had no subject. Make sure you have defined your subject; composition is critical. When I finally figured this out, my pictures were coming out pretty good (for my skill level).

When you get used to it, you will never leave home without it.

I really like the 10-22 as well. It's a great lens for nightclub photography, the only problem being the high levels of distortion @ wider angles, though this is a given for such a wide lens. I would definitely recommend it but it is somewhat of a specialty lens. I can see many people not being satisfied with it as a walkaround lens as it's such a wide angle. If it's what you want/need however, it's great.

like most have said...it all depends on what you use it for...i love my 10-22mm and although my arsenal isnt close to PRO stuff...my 10-22mm is on my 40D most of the time...

i have yet to leave for vacation with it and would love to try out some landscape/scenery shots...great lens and great image quality...

it was a little pricey and did not wanna risk being disappointed with a sigma 10-20 and i do NOT regret spending the money...

Nor me, and the images from the 10-22 are close to L standard

The second shot is a good strategic use of distortion; the arch supports on on either side are enhanced by the distortion, nice work. I end up screwing up shots with distortion most of the time, for example (10-22mm):
