you were mistaken.

The Canon 10-22, Sigma 8-16, 10-20, Tamron 10-24, 11-18, Tokina 11-16 and 12-24 are all rectilinear. Only the Tokina 10-17 is a fish-eye lens.

Now, while rectilinear there may be a bit of barrel distortion with these lenses, at the wide end. This is true for all of them, but some have a bit more distortion than others. The Canon 10-22 has low distortion and so does the Sigma 8-16.

Slowly learning to use the 450D, the Canon G6 and the Fuji F200.
