    Depends a bit on how much you want to spend. If the canons are too expensive, look at the sigma 10-20....

    If you're getting the 7D then how about this which gets very good reviews?

    As ever it depends on your budget, and general wisdom is to invest in the glass. Since you've bought a 7D I assume that you are serious about your photography and that budget is not a show stopper. Good glass will last longer than your camera body. For a zoom the 10-22mm Canon is good, though you could go fish-eye withe the 8-15mm L. Otherwise Ade is correct the 14mm is the widest rectilinear lens. This will sound daft to some people but with that camera don't bother with the independents.

    I'm 99% certain of getting the canon 7D. Thanks for the input so far. Quality is important to me.

    I have a 7D and the Sigma 10-20, but as a general work-horse lens the Canon 15-85 vary rarely comes off the camera. Reviews rate it highly as well.

    You're right, it does, because Canon aren't quite as indomitable with wide-angle lenses as they are with high-end telephotos. I have a Tamron 17-50mm f2.8 (non-VC), which holds up pretty well in quality when I compare it to the Canon 17-40mm.
