Wide angle lens recommendation?


I think I want a wide angle lens which can go substantially wider than the 18mm of my kit lens. I like photographing architecture and outdoor scenes and other inanimate objects.

My camera is a D5000, which I don't envisage upgrading any time real soon, so this limits me to lenses with built-in focus motors.

Which of the following lenses would you recommend and why:
1. Nikkor 10-24

2. Sigma 10-20/4.5-5.6 I like the price of this one but the other Sigma lenses aren't much more expensive.
3. Sigma 10-20/3.5
4. Sigma 8-16

Is there another lens I should consider and why?
