Cant decide on a wide angle lens!!
Mar 24, 2012

Im ready to ditch my 18-55 kit lens and get something a little wider. Ive been looking around for a few months and now that the weather is getting nice Im ready to buy. My problem is when Im looking for lenses I can never decide on just one haha. Ive found a few that might be exactly what im looking for but I cant decide which one.

I understand the basics of lens selection but I dont really know anything about distortion, CA, edge softness, overall sharpness and how to compare diff lenses with so many different factors. Im sure all of the selections will be better than the kit lens I currently have.

Here are the selections ive made. If there are others out there that I have missed please let me know!

1- Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 roughly $700 new

2- Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 found it for $700 used or $800 new

3- Canon EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 ... I read that this is a very good and popular lens but Im not sure if its wide enough. About $700 new.

4- Sigma 10-20mm f/3.5 $650 new.

Any help is appreciated!
