    Hi there.
    Looking for some advice from you out there. I currently use a Canon EOS350D and I am looking for a wide angle lens for landscape etc.
    I have narrowed down my choice to either of the above.
    Apart from the price difference have you any advice.
    Cheers

    i have the canon and it is an excellent lens, but thay also say the sigma is very good, on the tests the canon generally does a little better, but not by much, if you can afford it then go for the canon, but you are paying a lot more for only a slightly better lens

    Try having a look in this sites review section as both are covered and PM have a review including both of these and some others this month. AP also did a back to back review.(The sigma score higher in PM, but that is more to do with value).

    I have the sigma and think its great.

    This thread may be of interest.

    I had never heard any bad press about the Sigma till the above thread, where some people mention problems on the lower right. None of the reviews point out any issues of this sort. All I can say is my copy works well, and if it fails well it has a 3 year warranty for free.

    Do you know where I could pick up a fairly cheap Sigma 10-22?

    www.t4.co.uk is one place. Warehouse express are often good. Oh and speedgraphic used to have it at a good price.

    Thanks for all suggestions.

    Went for the Sigma and well delighted, takes lovely crisp images. Decided that the extra money could be spent on a few filters etc. Noted the other day in the Digital Photo Mag that it was voted top lens of 2005.

    Remember - Canon are doing a cashback offer on the 10-22 which I recall was something like 70.
