I went with the 10-22mm as I wanted the extra range as I use it mostly for landscape. Both create excellent images so guess it's about your needs.

I like the Tokina because it works on the APS-H and APS-C bodies. :)

On a side note, I often heard people mention the build of tokina 11-16 being very good but I never really feel that until I got the 135L and tried the 10-22 a couple of days ago. Indeed, the 11-16 is built more simliar to the 135L than 10-22. It's built and feels more professional than 10-22. You just got the feeling that it will last long. However, the 10-22 lens hood is MASSIVE! That alone can make people assume that you're a pro! :D And at 10mm, it's indeed wider than 11mm, although not by much to me, but that might be important to others.

On the down side, the 11-16 is a bit heavier. The flare actually doesn't bother me much as I found myself don't shoot during sunny day that much anyway. :D

You didnt mention your use of the two lens.

If your strickly using it for outdoor day light landscape and such use, the 10 22 will serve you well. Also a litle more reach than the 11 16

If you will be using it indoors the 11 16 with the 2,8 will shine over the 10 22 . However it will also serve you well out side, thus a more vesatal lens. Also as TS just said it can be used on both formats crop and FF.

So my vote because of the versatility goes with the 11 16

Actually crop (11-16) and APS-H (12.5-16), once you move it over to FF, it becomes a 16mm f2.8 prime.

Those 'r awesome! In september i'm going to be 1 month in Canada too (west). I'm planning on buying the lens there :)

You won't find Toki 11-16 in Canada, i got mine from USA. I'm not a good photographer,just an amateur like many here colectimg memories from my travel trips, but here are 2 pics in western Canada , same place ; 1st in May last year with with Tokina 11-16, 2nd in November last year using the kitt 18-55mm. I like Tokina ,but i don't like the zoom limits in this kind of landscape shot; wide shots are compressing the landscape, make this moutains look like bumps. I got better shots in my 2nd trip in November using the 18-55mm, ofers the options to isolate a corner of nature using the zoom( or a longer prime) before you shot, not croping it after from a the wide shot. Also i can't find a lens profile for toki to fix the distorsions in LR3. Wide lenses are good in the Canadian Rockies, but i sugest something from 20 to 50mm, or even longer.

^that's not a fair comparison because in the 2nd picture you're standing further away from the background (mountain) so obviously it'll make it look larger. plus the 2nd picture is probably taken using a longer FL.

i went for the tokina because it was cheaper, and faster. however, there were times when i wished that i had the 10-22 when i used it as a walk around, just so i can get that extra reach when i needed to. i have to say though, the 2.8 came in more handy (indoors for example) than the extra 6 mm.

So i guess the choice isn't easy after all ;)

Mainly i will use the lens outdoor during daylight shooting landscapes and so.

I think i found a lens correction profile for the tokina on page 183? of the lens sample topic on POTN. Someone posted it there.
Otherwise you could always create a profile yourself, Johny39. Nice pictures btw. They clearly show the "landscape compression", thnx!

Also thanks a lot for the other information, guys. Very helpfull!

It indeed isn't a 100% fair comparison but it gives me a good impression, at least ;)

i think faster (2.8) and cost probably outweigh extra reach. i mean, if you're gonna mount a super-wide, you might as well go all out? haha

Extra reach can be useful, because it can let you mount the lens and not carry any others. This is one advantage of the Canon over the 11-16 Tokina. If you need f2.8, then you need f2.8. If not, then the choice isn't as simple.
