Suggestions for UWA (Tokina 11-16, Sigma 10-20, Sigma 8-16)

Hi guys,

I have a Tamron 17-50 f/2.8 and a Tamron 70-300 f/4-5.6 I love them both dearly. However I'd like to be able to get more in the frame and I've come to really admire shots that have been taken at ultra wide angle focal lengths. So my question is which of these should I get. Main uses will be landscape, everyday stuff, interiors, and it will be paired with an a33, which I may be considering upgrading to either the a65 or a57. I wouldn't be surprised to find it on my camera about 50% if I like the results.

So, the choices as I see them are:

Sigma 8-16 f/4.5-5.6
Sigma 10-20 f/4-5.6
Tokina 11-16 f/2.8

(And yes, I do realize this is the 8 millionth post like this. If you're going to chastise me for posting, just know I'd like to have a personal recommendation.)
