Budget is £500 and currently using a Canon 450d.
Have been looking at the Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6 EX DC HSM Lens for Canon as a new Landscape Lens
Would this be the best option to upgrade lens to or any other suggestions
Also it seems to range on net from £389-£429 but have found a website http://www.onestop-digital.com/index.php?dispatch=products.view&product_id=3...
selling it for £323, anyone used them before?
Advice on the new lens would be fantastic

Sigma 10-20 is a great lens, I use one with my 40D, got it used for £300.
Onestop Digital is based in Hong Kong so you won't have any warranty or come back should anything go wrong, either buy from a UK based supplier who don't sell grey imports or buy used and save a few quid that way instead.
I have a few shots in my profile using the same lens.
The Sigma is a very nice lens but what do you mean by upgrading? What lenses do you have at the moment? I use the 10-20 a fair bit but it's by no means an every day lens.
Gaucho currently have kit lens 18-55 and a Sigma 70-300, got £500 as a present and would like to spend it wisely on a new lens, mainly do landscape photograpy
I would go for the Sigma then. It takes a bit of getting used to but well worth it. As Stu says though, be careful where you get it from. If you have anything left over, a 50mm 1.8 wouldn't go amiss
Cheers guys, so glad I joined , information and help is brilliant, thanks again
Hi Craig, I should be on commission the number of times I've recommended the Canon 15-85. I've also got the Sigma 10-20. I mainly take landscapes and travel photographs and very rarely use anything other than the 15-85 lens. Of course if your hooked on the extra wide perspective then the 10-20 is an excellent lens but I find the 15 is wide enough for the majority of occasions I need wide. I think you can find them around or just under your budget.
