Im looking for a wide- angle lens for my Canon 60D, I had the 17-40 but returned it (crazy expensive and I'd rather get an iPad for that kind of money)

But I forgot, I live in the USA and Im getting a tax return - I have about $500 to spend on a wideangle lens, it would be cool if it were Canon, but I can go third party if I must, one thing is, It must be NEW or refurbished, I will sell used, but not buy used, (unless someone wants to sell me a 17-40 for like $450)

Thanks guys, yall are the best.

it's definitely not going to be quick and easy with so little info as to what you want to do with the lens...

i think the choices will pretty much be:
tamron 17-50 f2.8 non VC
sigma 17-70f2.8-4 OS
canon 18-135IS...
canon 17-85IS

that's about it if you want a standard wide angle...i'd go for the sigma in your shoes...

edit: looking at your gear list you have a 24-70L...so i'd get a sigma 10-20mm to pair with it...

If you consider 17mm as wide then Tamron 17-50 f2.8 non-VC version is just under $500.

Or are you looking for something wider considering you already have a 24-70?

Yeah, the 17-40 isn't crazy expensive compared to other options.. if you want solely a wide angle addition, 10-20 would complement the 24-70 nicely.

Also, if you want an iPad, just wait till the 3 gets announced (soon), the iPad2's will be dropping in price to compete with the Kindle Fire. (i.e. potentially significant drops)

I shall be waiting a month or two for the iPad, but I may look into a used 17-40 (for around 450-550) - which is low. I am gonna do more research into the 10-20/10-22

If money is an issue, 10-20 > 10-22. I quite liked my copy, I only sold it to do something completely different (85 f/1.8)

Sigma 10-20 or Canon 10-22. 17-40 is not "wide" on a crop.

10-22 seems a good choice and will fit well with your 24-70.

Your right DreDaze, one would be lucky to ge the Canon for less than 5 bills. But, I am the type if I have $500 but what the 10-22mm Canon, I will wait until I get the extra $$ to buy it. Having $500 is being really close to being able to pull the trigger. But, to some, saving the extra $200+/- may be harder than it is for me. I can do without some frills until I get what I want.

General purpose or wide angle? 17-40 isn't wide on a crop at all.

EDIT: just read the rest of the thread, i too recommend the 10-20 or even 10-22

Love my Sigma 10-20mm. I felt it is just as sharp as the Canon I tried out and I liked the build better. Nice colors, comes with hood, case and 4 year warranty and it is in your price range. My wife liked mine so much that I had to buy another one for her camera!

SIgma 10-20 and Tamron 10-24mm are the only two lenses that can be bought new for around $500. Everything else is more expensive than that.

(Note: there are two versions of Sigma 10-22... the f3.5 fixed aperture costs considerably more than $500).
