Default Wide angle, some suggestions.....

Sigma 10-20
Sigma 12-24
Tokina 11-16

Canon 10-22
I want to do landscape like farms etc but I also do nyc with tall buildings and tight streets.
The canon is a bit steep for me.
Can we discuss and give opinion on what is te best lens for this type o shooting and the most bang for the buck?
