I don't know yet how much I'm willing to spend, trying to determine this as soon as possible. The problem is that I need to buy a tripod and maybe a flash. Also my father went away so we have to recalculate a few things. I'm working 7/7 12hours a day to be able to buy all the lenses I need.

I've been traveling mostly in Europe in tight streets where I was having alot of trouble taking complete pictures of a building. In Peru I'm gonna be doing more hiking and etc. Not sure how it's gonna be.

I can get the Sigma 10-20mm for less than 600CAD (520US) or wait for the 10-22mm. Never heard of the 11-16mm. I saw the Sigma 12-24. Is the difference from 18 to 12 really big?

Overall I'm thinking 1500$ budget for tripod, flash, 55-250mm (already bought) and another lens.

Not sure if I have the courage to bring my camera in a place like that yet.

I think so. 18mm on APS-C has the FOV of 29mm due to crop, and 12mm becomes 19mm. The differences on APS-C are increased because of the crop factor.

And 10mm becomes 16mm, which is seriously wide. I can get whole buildings in the frame only standing a few feet away.

And the Tokina 11-16mm is one of the most highly rated crop sensor wide angle zooms. And it has an advantage over the Canon 10-22mm in that it has a constant f/2.8 aperture vs. the f/3.5-5.6 of the Canon. But the Tokina has one weakness in it's amount of chromatic aberration.

LOL, not for the timid! Actually, if you're careful it's easy. The water in the creek is very shallow, never more than 3 feet and usually just inches. I just walk up the creek with the camera on the tripod, legs folded when moving, and the camera strap around my neck.

Personally, I like the mobility of a monopod as I have a pretty steady hand.

But for longer exposures, definitely tripod. Preferrably a heavy one, so it doesnt fall over (for shots like Gone's)

When I'm walking through a river I'm always thinking "I'm gonna fall and lose alot of money".
Mmm now you made me even more undecided with the Tokina! I low balled the sigma 10-20 to 435$ but there's a Tokina 11-16 for 600$ too. The Canon one is kinda out of my price range.

I'd like a monopod because I travel very lightly, but I love doing really long exposures sometimes.

The two Sigma lenses are ok, but nothing in comparison with the Tokina or Canon.

I'd rather wait and buy quality then. Let's see if I can get the Tokina cheaper.

Edit: Reading the reviews it seems like the Tokina has the best quality but less range. More and more interesting.

I'd take the Tokina. Rather give up some range for a constant aperture at f/2.8 and extremely good image quality.

Check out this thread for sample images:
