Yes I know, its been done to death before.Sad but just once more please.

Ok, a straight choice..........Tokina f2.8 11-16 or Sigma f3.5 10-20

Required for general photography on a Canon 7D body.

As my head is going around with so much wide angle lens info, please don't introduce another option, I coulden't handle it..............Smile

I have the Sigma 10-20 EX F4-5.6 and love the lens, would I look at a faster wide angle lens (F2.8)? probably not, as I like to take landscape images and don't really venture out in lower light. If the price difference between the two Sima lens wasn't much, then I may look at the faster lens.

I also like the 10-20 range as opposed to the shorter 11-16 of the Tokina, even using the 20mm end for portraits in tight locations.

I had a similar choice to make when I bought my macro lens earlier in the year, and I'd suggest that you take you camera body into a decent camera shot and try out both the wide angle lens and see which one feels best.

Have the 11-16 and love it-its super sharp. I also use it for perspective close up shots (eg a flower in the near foreground with the field visible behind it) where the 2.8 aperture is useful.
