How wide is xtra wide...?

If 10mm will do, then the Canon 10-22mm EF-S is a great buy. But if you are thinking about going full frame in the near future, you should stick with EF lenses.

Most consider the Canon EFS 10-22 the best ultrawide lens for the 20D.

I just remembered that I read a review of the Sigma 10-20 EX in a magazine... :idea:

They liked a lot -called itnearly as good as the Canon 10-22. And it is cheaper! So if you are on a budget you might want to try this out?

I have the Sigma 10-20mm EX and can reccomend it. Digital Photo magazine (UK) tested the Sigma against the Canon 10-22mm, Nikon 12-24mm, Sigma 12-24mm, Tamron 11-18mm and the Tokina 12-24mm and it came out on top. It pipped the Canon on value for money, and matched it for image quality, and features and build (£200 cheaper than Canon in UK) Remember you will have to buy the hood seperatly for the Canon. Also with the Sigma EX range you get 3 years warranty compared to Canons 1 year..

Shot straight out of the camera with no PS.

You might also check the Tokina 12-24mm. I have it and am very satisfied. The server for my photos is down right now, I'll post an example when it comes back up.

Also, I just got the new copy of Popular Photography and it has a comparison of Sigma, Tokina, and Tamron super wide zooms.

After reading it, I feel good about my Tokina:-)

Both the Sigma 1020 and Tokie 1224 are excellent UWAs at a great price. I opted for the Sigma due to its superb resolution performance, HSM/FTM, 10mm wide, and price-point. Here's one of my tests http://www.pbase.com/fstopjojo/uwatest
