10-20 was an awesome landscape lens. I miss it, but not enough to justify re-buying it (yet).

thanks guys. right now where i am in photography my needs are in the longer and extremely short focal lengths since i do have the middle covered. i really appreciate how well you guys help me as well as many other think through needs versus wants to ensure buying the best glass for what i do. i think that for the extra money the sigma 10-22 is what i need. i have about $300 saved up so im not too far off from the goal for $480

yall are the best to come to for advice. i feel spoiled when i go and do my video work because the lens i use is like a 8.6-90mm f1.6 constant with a built in 2X extender. so i have trouble knowing what i need with my photography since im not as experienced with photos

i wish the canon 10-22 wasnt so expensive but for the price i am going with the sigma, i doubt it possible to have terrible front/back focus on a wide lens so i feel pretty good about going with them

i believe canons will meter without chip, so you can shoot on aperture priority.

if you want a good between ground between the sigma and the canon (10-20 vs 10-22) is the 11-16 tokina.

You're welcome (if I contributed that is). And a constant 8.6-90mm f/1.6? Must be a giant of a lens.

If you really want the be-all end-all Canon crop UWA, the Canon 10-22 is where it's at. I loved the hell out of that lens. I bought mine used for $575, and though it would be more of a wait, it's well worth it. The flare and CA control on that lens is remarkable, as is the sharpness.

With Sigma lenses, it's actually best to buy used, because chances are, the seller has already encountered and had fixed focus issues, if any. POTN is a great place to buy used, as is Fred Miranda.

thanks you have helped a lot. i want to avoid potn since i dont do paypal and my parent would kill me for doing it because they think ill get screwed. ill check out this fred miranda site. if i find a affordable used canon 10-22 ill totally do that since i know the quality will be much higher than the sigma

im going to have to save a little longer since i am currently waiting on paychecks that will be enough but for some reason our checks for one of my video crew are taking forever to process. and i have a few other freelance jobs that will net me about $500 or so but i wont get paid until the end of november most likely. by then i will be 100% on my decision and ready to buy, i dont want to rush it too much since i know what i honestly need i just have to pull the trigger and buy

Well, with POTN, the sellers are often very good, just be sure to ask for credentials (eBay feedback, POTN feedback). Same with Fred Miranda. A lot of people here at OCN have bought at POTN, like reincarnated who I believe has bought everything he's ever owned used from POTN.

If you don't use Paypal, you can always ask if the seller will take alternatives (check, money order), but Paypal is usually favorable to buyer anyway in disputed purchases. Just NEVER agree to pay a seller with a Paypal Gift, because you lose all buyers' rights.

And get a bank account and/or debit card for online purchases (or use a Paypal account). You save a TON of money over B&M prices, which are always at least retail or higher. Plus there's no sales tax for online purchases, (unless you live in the same state as where the website's HQ/warehouses are located) which can add up when purchasing camera gear in the hundreds and thousands of dollars.

i have a credit card and debit card i just keep cash most of the time. and i am trying hard not to run my credit card bill too high because i have a lot of money in freelance jobs that i have contracts signed but they money has not come through yet which makes it hard to do purchases at least right now. i am currently due $300 and growing from my football broadcast crew
