New Wide Lens...?

I'm going to be traveling throughout Europe this summer and figured it might be a good excuse to pick up a new lens.

I have a 40D and my widest lens is a 17-55mm. With the crop, I'm worried it might not be wide enough to capture a lot of the landscapes and architecture I'm looking forward to shooting. (I've definitely had situation before where I've wished for something wider.)

I'm looking at the Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM, Tamron SP AF 10-24mm F3.5-4.5, Sigma 10-20mm F4-5.6, or Sigma 10-20mm F3.5.

I like to stick to Canon lenses, but am wondering if anyone has input on whether either of those others are worth looking at instead of the Canon 10-22mm.

Thanks

There are a ton of UWA posts in the last three weeks or so. You'll learn more from reading them than you will waiting for people to repeat themselves. Just start paging back in this forum and you'll see them.

Do a search. However I'd recommend the Tokina 11-16mm f2.8, Sigma 8-16mm, or Canon 10-22.

I have a Sigma 10-20mm lens which is a real belter. I'm selling it though as I am trying to go FF-friendly with my lenses ans so have bought a 16-35L which makes the Wigma somewhat redundant. If I was all crop though there would be no way I would sell it as it is really very good.

Tokina 11-16/2.8 if you can find one. Very popular.

just from price and performance alone i decided to go with the sig 10-20 4-5.6. i compared it back to back with the canon and sigma 8-16 and i couldn't tell THAT much difference between the canon. the 8-16 is obviously wider but also couldn't tell too much in the store. i think the sig 10-20 is the best bang for buck.

Again search, but as others have stated, the Tokina 11-16 is great. I have owned the Sigma 10-20 and used the Canon 10-22. Both are solid lenses, but I prefer the extra light and sharpness that the Tokina provides.


Canon 5DIII, 7D, 40D, 8-14L, 24-70 f2.8L, 70-200 f2.8L IS, 24L, 50L, 85 f1.8, 100L, 135L, 1.4 Extender, Tokina 16-28 f2.8, and too many lights and accessories to list.

I would definitely suggest the 10-22mm. I'm trying to get one myself.

Canon 10-22 is nice, par your 17-55, but tokina 11-16 has f/2.8 which can be useful if you need it.
The conclusion is Tokina 11-16.

I've been very pleased with the results and build quality of the Tokina 12-24 f/4.

I love my 10-22. I'm an ultrawide addict, that's why I'm also considering the 8-16.
Since the 7D has a great ISO performance, low light shooting is not bad at all.
Plus you can easily handhold down to 1/10s exposures.

f/2.8 is definitely nice to have but I haven't really missed it on this FL.


Think new Canon lenses are overpriced? Lots (and lots) of data will set you free!
