Yes, I would

I currently have a Sigma 10-20 lens and have enjoyed using this Ultra Wide Angle (UWA) for over a year. It's great for architectural, landscape, seascape and interior shooting.

I have the same lens.

I've been contemplating the switch to the newer Sigma 8-16. My question is to those who own the Sigma 8-16 and have upgraded or switched from another UWA lens......

1. In your opinion, is it worth the upgrade/switch or is there hardly any difference? Does the extra 2 mm on the wide side make a significant difference?

It makes a considerable difference.

2. Are you satisfied with the build and optical quality of the newer lens?

I hope to find out as soon as possible (lack of money).

3. From which lens did you make the switch (if any)? (i.e. Canon 10-22, Tokina 11-16, Sigma 10-20, etc.)

Sigma 10-20, lens I will sell it when getting the 8-16.

What is the street price of the Sigma 8-16?

Around 730€ for Canon mount.

Feel free to post any photos from the Sigma 8-16, preferably with EXIF.
