plus free 2 day shipping with prime trial
so basically makes up for the CA sales tax and save me a few bucks on top
and the price difference between the new one and a used one is about $50-60 so i will go with the new and not worry about buying someone else's problem

for the 10-22mm i will probably go with used since there is a bigger price difference between new and used
I have no idea....maybe 4 or 5 years ago? It's been awhile. And you're wanting the 10-22 now too? I'd look at the 17-40 before you make a decision. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my 10-22 and it rarely ever leaves my camera but for the same price you get L glass and a lens that will work with FF whenever you move up.

Ack... don't tempt me
Yes... the fact that 10-22mm only works on crop is a limiting factor... but at the same time I really don't see myself going to full frame ... ever
It just isn't worth it for me when I am a super casual photo hobbyist

Now I just started looking at the sigma 10-20mm
Seems like a great lens and much more affordable

I have:

Sigma 150/2.8 macro
Canon 28-135
Canon 50/1.4
Canon 10-22
Canon 28-80
Canon 18-55

And 99% of the time I'm using the 10-22 or the 50. If you NEVER see yourself going FF then get the 10-22, it's easily my favorite lens (keep in mind though 90% of what I shoot is landscape).

I'm ordering the canon 28mm f1.8 tonight
I will need to check out the sigma 10-20mm and compare with the canon 10-22mm ...
I do a lot of people and cityscape shooting
So I think the 28mm + a ultra wide zoom will pretty much cover all my needs

Landscape with a 10-22? How is the distortion?

My Tokina 11-16 2.8, although it is a wide angle, has some serious distortion that I still haven't been able to figure out how to correct. (haven't tried too hard either. Lightroom couldn't do it automatically.) Shooting landscape with that lens would be nice if it weren't for that.

You have 28-80 and 28-135
Are they different enough to keep both?
I don't know anything about either lens

Check this out. It's kinda similar to what you're considering. But faster.

Not bad at all as long as I keep the horizon away from the top/bottom. My flickr account is in my sig; 90% of my landscapes are at 10mm. You really only notice the distortion with buildings, people, rooms, or anything else with straight lines, and if you're really worried about that then that's what tilt shift lenses are for.

Tokina 11-16 actually has very little distortion compared to others.

Either you are very picky, or it is defective.

I wish now that I did not sell mine.

Let me know how you like the 28mm; I have been thinking about getting one.

I received it and took a few pics around the house
I already know I'm going to really like this lens
what I see with my eyes shows up in the viewfinder the same
I couldn't do that with the 50mm
