    Something all the way down to 10-12mm :o

    Doesn't matter what shape it's in, as long as it works :wiggle:

    I'm thinking the sigma 10-20mm, just not sure if there's anything better in that price range.. :o

    It'll be going on a Rebel XT :o :o

    You pretty much can't get a wide angle for <$600 eh?

    I found a 10-22mm canon on CL for $550

    Is that better than the sigma & tokina?

    I had the sigma 10-20, it was ok... but I didn't use any other 3rd party lenses before jumping a few steps to the big boy I have now.

    They're 599 new so probably a little less used.
