I've not got a lot of money spare but I really want to get a decent but low end landscape lens - very wide angle, 10 - 20mm sort of thing. Any recommendations without having to sell the wife?

Kind of depends on what you think you can get for the wife.

So's a live in maid haha Seriously, is there such a thing as a budget UWA?? I guess it comes back to what sort of quality you want. You have the Sigma, Tamron and Tokina, which are considerably cheaper than the Canon but gee, the Canon gives great quality shots, I do love mine. I think the Sigma 10-20 f4-5.6 is about the cheapest. I'm not sure what you guys pay in the States but it is $384 cheaper than the Canon 10-22 is over here in Australia.

Don't know if it qualifies as a budget lens, but for the price I've been very happy with my Sigma 10-20 f/4-5.6.

A used 12-24mm f/4 Tokina might fill the bill. I love mine and don't have any flare problems...

Save your money and get something decent. Glass makes all the difference. I'd go for a Tokina 11-16 f/2.8 if you can find one. You can also rent :)

how much do you have to spend?
sigma 10-20mm is the cheapest way to get to 10mm...it's a good lens too

It really does depend on the budget. but I will second the Toki 12-24 F/4. Great, great reasonably priced lens.

Sigma 10-20mm 4-5.6 is a great lens for the money. I love mine and it is better built than the Canon.
