Going to Hawaii, do I need a UWA?

Title says it all. Planning my first trip over to the Islands. As you can see in my sig, my widest is 17mm. Would I regret not having something wider? Is the efs 10-22 worth the $200 price difference from the Sigma 10-20?

I would say that Canon's 10-22mm is worth the cost. I'm a big fan of this UWA lens. I've never used the Sigma but the Canon's IQ is awesome. Here is a thread to check out:

I would say you will regret going w/o a UWA.
Which one you get is another discussion, but get one for sure.

I just got back from O'ahu (See, I even threw in the apostrophe so that I look like I brought something back) and I would have liked to have something wider than the 17-55mm IS. But, isn't that usually the case? I mean, you'll always want to go wider at some point. You'll always find a use for UWA on a vacation.

I had the 17-55mm mounted on the camera the whole time and spent a lot of time at the wide end. Though, I also spent a lot of time at the long end, usually wanting for more reach, too.

Short of the long, you will find a use for UWA, but you will also want reach - don't overlook that end when you pack your bags.

My wife and I went to Hawaii just a few weeks ago. I was in the same situation... not sure if I should spring for the UWA or not. Well I did and I sure am glad as there were way to many oppertunities to have not had it. I took my XTI, 11-18 Tamron, 17-85 IS, and my 70-300 IS.

I used the 17-55 85% of the time and the 11-18 maybe 10%, the other 5% was split amungst the 70-300 and my SD600 and Underwater Canon Case.

I'm still learning but here are some UWA shots.

I see you went to Hanauma Bay. That was easilly the most fun I've had with my SD450 and under water housing. I would have stayed there the entire trip had I known better.

Nice shots, BTW.

Had the EF-S 10-22 on a trip last month to Hawaii and Japan. Fun lens to use, although it really made me look harder at composition and backgrounds. I haven't tried out the Sigma, but the IQ is probably comparable.

Should definitely get a UWA for your trip!

The Sigma comes with a pouch and hood and will perform the same. You only get the lens and caps with the Canon. Get a UWA if you like taking landscape photos. If your going to have a model in your shot, just increase the magnification to eleminate the HUGE distortion at 10mm. Have Fun! UWA is a Very Fun lens to have.

I have my 17-40 on my 30D or MKII all the time now and wish I could get wider! You'll definitely need it for your trip to Hawaii. Sounds like the sigma is a winner.

Why? The Sigma 10-20 is built for APS-C sensors. I believe you can mount the lens to a FF body, but you will experience vignetting. Are you thinking of the 12-24?

I'd definitely recommend bringing an UWA to Hawaii
Which islands are you visiting?
