I have and love my Tokina 12-24. I didn't notice *that much* difference with the Canon 10-22 when I looked at them both at B&H. I found the Tokina to be very well built and it has consistently given me sharp pictures. All my other lenses are Canon, except for my UWA.

I have been researching this very issue as I am trying to decide which lens to get for myself. I think I have decided to get the Tokina 11-16 since it is f/2.8 - and the price is right in line with all of the others.

Great review of various lenses in this category

The Tokina 11-16 is probably the best ultra-wide for a crop-body on the market right now, you can't go wrong. Provided you don't need to cover much range, as the 5mm focal range is more like a prime.

The Tokina 11-16 is 'practically' a prime: http://forums.steves-digicams.com/ni...uggestion.html
The Canon's one is much easier to find... as the Nikon version is always out of stock

Default Wide Angle lens

I've been very pleased and would purchase again the Canon EF-S10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM. A very expensive piece of glass but performance is first class.
