Re: Which wide angle zoom lens should I get?

Thanks for the info guys, much appreciated. Really loved the link Vsquid, helped me understand these lenses a lot better.

Right now, I'm looking at the Sigma 10-20 f4 and the Sigma 8-16 f4.5. Both of these are available used not far from me and I'm willing to buy used to save a little, since I'm a bit of a novice. And both of these look great.

The 10-20 is $350 and the 8-16 is $500. What do you think?

Looking at the comparison in the link sent, I was surprised to see how much of a difference 2mm makes, comparing 8mm to 10mm. Not sure if this is worth the extra money, considering how affordable the 10-20 is. I'm leaning towards that.
