    I sold mine to a friend who doesn't use it for $400, which I paid $450 for. I told her I'd buy it back for $400 but she'd rather keep it.

    The price drop in most cameras was probably due to Canon's rebate. People sold their old gear, to by new gear, like myself.

    Are you searching completed listings??? Seems like the pricing is all over the place. Bodies only range from 350 to 500

    definitely get the 17-50. even 17 won't seem wide enough on a crop sensor sometimes

    which one did you go with? I'm stuck between the 12-24mm sigma and the 10-22 canon, also considering the 10-20 sigma, but reviews are telling me otherwise

    I have the 10-20 sigma, I love it. I feel the sharpness is good, A little vignetting but I feel it is tolerable (and an issue with all UWA if im not mistaken), I shoot mostly landscapes with it, so details get really small. Only way I think it would be better is if it were f/2.8, but like I said, I use mine mostly at f/8-f/11 anyways.

    Here is a sample (I can upload a 100% crop if you want) EXIF should be intact

    yeah resizes are kinda hard to see the flaws, let's see a 100% crop. it looks good there though. did you use a polarizer?

    Check your PM's I sent a few more 100% crops to you

    no polarizer, just added a little bit of contrast and saturation in lightroom, no other PP. although I need to clone out all the floaties in the lake
