I voted for the Tokina. With all of those fast lenses in your sig, you will miss 2.8 more than you will like 17-22mm. Besides, you have the 17-55 to cover this focal length range.

Save yourself some money and get the faster lens.

Unless you really want f2.8, I would go with the Sigma 10-20 f4.5-5.6

Oops, it is a 10-20 f4-5.6, I misspoke =P

What do you need your lens to be fast for if I may ask? I don't often see many wide angle shots at huge apertures.

I love my 11-16 and it's constant 2.8 aperture. These lenses are hard to find in stock, I had to wait six months before one came in.

+1 for Sigma 10-20 f4-5.6

You probably won't need such a fast aperture and the extra depth of field would help get everything in focus

Another happy Tokina user. I'd rather have the 2.8 aperture than the wider range - I just figure if I'm putting on a UWA, I'm doing it to shoot wide. If I need anything above 16mm, I'm happy to change to another lens. IQ is also very solid.

There is a Sigma 10-20 with constant f3.5 now.

But I'd go with the 10-22 if you have the funds for it.

the tokina 11-16 f/2.8 was my choice, but each to their own, i like the idea of being able to use the lens's low light capabilities

I own both the Canon and Tokina UWAs. Which is best depends on which conditions you'll be shooting in. For anything outdoors in the sunshine then the Canon's supreme flare-resistance makes it the lens of choice. For interior shooting or for astronomy wide-fields then the f2.8 of the Tokina is the deciding factor.

I've been looking at the same decision. I will be using mine for landscape photography in good light where I want extended DOF thus the 2.8 is not really an issue for me so I'll be getting the 10-22 Canon. I also like its 77mm diameter will allow me to use the ND density filters I have for my 17-55mm.

On the wide end, every mm counts. i had the Sigma 10-20 f/4-5.6 and didn't find it "slow", because at such a short FL you can hold it much steadier. Even though I was getting slow shutter speeds with it, I was able to get similar results in low light as with my Sigma 24-60 f/2.8.

If budget is not an issue- Sigma 8-16!
