Ultrawide Recommendation to Round Out My Kit

Greetings All,

Yes, I know, there is endless discussion on this topic and I've read a zillion reviews and looked at a zillion photos at Flickr and everywhere else. Here's my story. At the moment I have the following:

* Nikon D3300 * 18-55mm VRII * 35mm f1.8G * 50mm 1.8G * 55-200 VRII

I'm very happy with my kit. I use it almost daily -give myself assignments, learn how to use each lens and the D3300. So far so good.

I am looking for an ultra-wide and have narrowed it down to the following

* Sigma 10-20 * Tokina 11-16 / Tokina 11-20 (and the Tokina 11-16 has a type II version) * Nikon 10-20

Most of my shooting is gardens, parks, I live near rivers so river shots, I visit friends in the mountains, I'll be traveling to a variety of places - so it's general everyday photography mostly outdoor stuff, people included but not heavy on the people. I shoot in raw and do a bit of regular postprocessing - color balance, clarity, contrast, etc.

The Nikon is significantly lighter than the other choices but weight is not that important.

The 16-80 mm is a consideration at some point as a general walk-around lens but not right now - I want to round out my kit with an ultrawide.

For those with experience with any/all of these different ultrawide lenses I would greatly appreciate your thoughts. They all seem sort of the same to me including size and weight except for the NIkon.

Thank you!
