I am sure that this has been answered, but will the canon ef-s 17-85mmwork with the 10D?

Please advise...thanks!

It will not. The ef-s was designed for EOS 300D and 20D only.Now the 350D supports it as well.

Thanks I suspected as much. Ok, so that leaves the Tamron, Sigma and Canon wide angles...

Anyone have any good suggestions for a good wide angle? 17mm - 40mm or 50mm would be nice.

The 17-40 f4L I use with my 10D is perfect. A good two lens outfit is a 17-40 f4L and 85mm f1.8. If you wanted a zoom on the tele lens a 17-40 f4L and 70-200 f4L is a great outfit. I used that two lens outfit for a while. The 200mm end got to be too short for me so I sold my 70-200 f4L and bought the 100-400L and picked up an 85mm f1.8 as an in-between lens.

My latest toy is the 15mm f2.8 EF full-frame fisheye- a very fun lens that turns out to be, at only 2mm wider, surprisingly wider than I thought it would be than the 17mm end of my zoom. Those 4 lenses (15, 17-40, 85 and 100-400) are my ultimate outfit, and all four can be used on larger sensored bodies if I so decide to move up.

The attached image was made from the 19th floor of my office building with the 15mm f2.8 on my 10D.
