    after seeing that wide thread, i think i want a super wide lens for one of my lenses im probably going to stick with canon since i already have one canon lens

    should i get

    canon 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5
    sigma 12-24mm f/4.5-5.6
    tokina 12-24mm f/4
    tamron 11-18mm f/4.5-5.6
    sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6

    does anybody know a site comparing all these lenses at several apature stops?? im looking to get somethign cheap but sharp too

    im still not sure what camera im going to get, debating between 20d and 1d mark 2 still, but not completely sure.. any advice would be helpful, thanks!

    this must be some clever ae, right? :hsugh:


    it would probably be a better idea to get a camera and start shooting to figure out what you need. www.fredmiranda.com has good lens reviews.

    The Canon lens will not work on the 1D. The Canon to-22 is an EF-S mount.

    Tokina is the fastest lens of the bunch but a couple aren't even released yet, I think. The Tamron 11-18 and Sigma 10-20 aren't even on the market yet IIRC.

    The Tokina has been getting good reviews as is the Canon and the Sigma 12-24 has proven to be a pretty decent ultra wide angle lens.

    IMO, you should buy a camera before you buy a lens though. . . . :hsughr:

    hi black jack jr! :wavey:
