Hey guys im really thinking about swapping my Canon 10-22mm for the new sigma 8-16mm...

Not alot of cost difference, and i have the 15-85mm for the extra reach... so im not really losing out on the telephoto side?

Any advice???

Thanks :D

If you don't use filters there's no reason not to go with the 8-16mm. I absolutely love mine!

I was just reading about the 8-16 and the reason why it doesnt accept a filter is because its so wide the filter ring/frame will show in the pictures, True?

Nope, it has a bulbous front element and no front threads. There's ways to make a LEE system work with a few extra parts and some modification, but nothing screw in will.

I get back to Miami Sunday night, my 8-16 has been patiently waiting for me there for 2 weeks... I can't wait to play with it. :)

pretty much, yes. depends on which filter size we're talking about though. That is true for normal panel filters, but cokin's X-pros will work.

depends (again) on which lee system you're talking about I think. They made a new system for the Nikon 14-24mm which would work, but doesn't have an adapter for the 8-16 (not a big problem). But their 4x6 setup probably won't fit.

Bear in mind, I have NOT used a 8-16mm. I have tons of time with nikon's 14-24 and sigmas 12-24mm both on FF with filters though, for both you need cokin's X-pros. I'd assume the 8-16mm is the same because it's a wider lens but a cropped sensor.

I think the Canon is slightly overpriced, which is why I got the $200-cheaper Sigma 10-20. But for me this lens is used occasionally, and more of a novelty. But I am very happy with my Sigma, and I think the improved technology in the new lenses should prove to be good, and 8mm would be really fun!!

Well i already have the canon 10-22, so its not an issue of price, its just focal range!

If you're looking to buy one of either new, you could get the 8-16 over the 10-22 because it's wider and seems to have great IQ. I wouldn't swap the 10-22 though, unless you really feel that you're missing out on the ultra-ultra-wide end. Even then, consider some stitching / 3 x 2 panoramas or buy a cheap Samyang fish eye to add to it and stretch out the shot with DxO.
