Well I reckon some photo's speak more than words. Here are some examples at 10mm from a Sigma, but I think you will see the impact you can get in a shot with a subject placed close to foreground & the resulting perspective you get in a shot

Ray although i don't have the Sigma, i have the Tokina 12-24mm and this is my most used lens. These wide angle lenses are very versatile lenses, for me i take mainly landscapes/seascapes but Dave's examples show just what can be achieved also check out www.contaminationzone.com a site belonging to Pixalo member Nursepayne who i believe used the Sigma 10-22mm for most of the shots on her site.

Re: canon Ef-s 10-22 Advice Please

The quality of the Sigma 10-20 seems generally very good, although Sigma do suffer a little from QC problems, so it depends on whether you get a good one. The Canon 10-22 is more expensive but will probably hold its resale value a little better. I have the Canon and am pleased with the results, although I'm not sure if I'd have bought it in preference to the Sigma (or Tamron, or Tokina) if I hadn't had a cash-back voucher which knocked the price down to about the same as the third-party lenses.

As far as I can see from reviews, the only significant advantage that the Canon 10-22 may have is lower distortion, especially at the extremes of focal length. But as always, you pays your money and takes your choice.

Quality wise im not too bothered, ok thats showing my ignorance probably as a novice, but as im retired and have a few bob i bought it as a landscape lens, but i find its a lot better in close situations am i wrong...Ray

Re: canon Ef-s 10-22 Advice Please

Nope, you are right Ray. At 10mm the lens has limited use for a lot of landscape shots, unless you have something in foreground to add interest / impact & help lead your eye in the shot. 1st time I used mine I noticed the landscape in front of me just disappeared in to the far distance when I opened it up to 10mm

It can be used for landscape well, but it takes careful planning & composition to make most of it at 10mm end. At 20mm it's more forgiving

Re: canon Ef-s 10-22 Advice Please

It's sometimes useful for landscapes - to fit everything in....



... but I use it a lot for interior shots like this one of the house refurbishment - not a very good pic but perhaps gives an idea of how a 10mm lens makes a room look really large!

Re: canon Ef-s 10-22 Advice Please

I have owned a Canon 10-22mm for nearly 3 years now and it is certainly my most used lens over that period. It is ideal for landscapes and architecture. I could not imagine a photoshoot in Venice without it. Also great for photographing inside buildings (e.g. churches, British museum etc).
