Looking to add a wide angle lens to my 18-55mm and 70-300mm lenses for my digital Rebel. I'd like to get a lense with a great depth of field .... I want to take landscape photos. I'm in the $400 or less range. Any recommendations for my low budget?

Sigma 10-20.
It's the only cheap(ish) zoom lens that goes much wider than the kit lens. There might be some primes worth looking at too.

Any lens will take pics with a great depth of field. You just have to close the aperture right down. This will also slow your shutter down so you might want a tripod.

What's wrong with your kit lens? It takes excellent landscape photos as long as your not taking pics of buildings (a little bit of distortion that you wouldn't normally notice becomes very obvious when the shot is full of what are supposed to be straight lines). Even then, the distortion is easily corrected in PS.

That's what I want to start photo'ing ... tall building or trees showing the lines going all the way up the pic and all sharp and focused.

Sigma 10-20 would be the best choice for the money. I'm geting myself one to.
