Anyone have any experience with this lens? It seems to get really solid reviews. The next closest option for me is the 16-35 2.8, but want just a bit wider. I know Canon makes the 10-22, but I've talked to two people that weren't very impressed with it.

I'm hearing good things about the 11-16 f2.8 Tokina but I'd be surprised (other then being faster/constant aperture) if it blew the 10-22 away from an IQ standpoint. <BR> <BR>Most 10-22 owners seem to like the lens, they just don't think it's worth the price.

Blah- Typo.. 10-17 3.5 <BR> <BR>It's getting great reviews..hope someone on here has toyed with it. <BR> <BR>Rich, I've talked to two who made comments about how they'd wish they considered third party lenses before buying the 10-22. They said they weren't in love with it.. not even close. 10-22 is pretty much the perfect focal range, though. I dunno.. I guess I'm just bouncing different ideas around to get some opinions from you guys.

I am assuming its the fish 10-17 if so I have been using it for the past year plus and I have been happy with it. Its works great in my housing from the tube and I have taken a lot of my skate shots with it with great results. Are you looking for a wide angle or a fisheye? I am in the alliance photo battle and that shot was with the 10-17.

I have the 10-22 and love it although I never played with the 10-17
