Re: Quality wide angle lenses that don't cost a fortune?

Curious, have you by any chance held the 17-55 and if so how would you compare the 10-22 construction to the 17-55? Does it feel equally plasticky? (The main thing that worries me about the 10-22 is that the 17-55 actually did physically break into pieces on me. Kind of really boggles me why nobody except Zeiss makes good ol' unbreakable metal lenses anymore... I'd settle for Canon-grade optics in a metal case, but there's no 10-22 range lens in a metal case at least that I can find)

Also, does the 10-22 have internal zooming and focusing, or does the front element move? I think that's part of where the mechanical deficiencies lie in plastic.
