If you need wider then you should look at the 28 1.8. I just picked one up a few weeks ago and it would make a great walk around prime for the wide side. it focuses fast and seems to be built relatively well. The center is a little soft wide open but sharpens up nicely by f/2.2. The corners are also soft but are sharp by f/5.6.

Not sure of your price range but it sells for $469 with the current rebates.
