I know, I know... there're tons of threads about these lenses, but I just wanted to get a conclusive answer from those that have used either or, preferably, both of these lenses. From what i've read, Sigma actually has better IQ and build quality (?), but Canon has the better (quicker?) focus. Is that right? The price is just about the same.... and that the Sigma comes with a pretty nice case... right?? am I right in this conclusion? Can someone shed some light on the issue? or lead me to a side-by-side comparison?? thank you in advance...

I can only tell you about the Canon, I do not own or have any experience with the Sigma, I do like my Fisheye, super wide, the AF is noisy, but not too bad. Optically it is excellent. I do not like the fit of the hood, comes off very easily while traveling in a camera bag

My 15mm Canon does, very nicely, what I want with my 20D format. Now that I will soon be getting a 1D3 I figure I would rather have something like 20-21mm. Alas, Canon's 20mm doesn't fare too well in reviews and I really don't want to get a heavier, more expensive zoom (16-34L, 17-40L). I feel kind'a stuck. I don't guess there is much of a chance Canon will, anytime soon, introduce a new, better 20 or 21mm prime.
