Default 11-22 still wise to buy?

I'm following a 11-22mm lens at Ebay that is still pretty low in price.
But suddenly I started asking myself if the 11-22 is still a good one to own.
Any advice?

I guess it would depend upon price, condition of the lens, and if you think you'll use it enough to justify buying it. From everything I've read, it's a very nice WA lens.

Its a very nice lens. Its sharp, bright, reasonable in weight...

I'm not much for landscapes, and that is its primary calling, but I will share this one.



This is at 11mm, which the lens seems to be tuned for.

Thank you for the picture Greg, it looks very good.
I will see what the price does and buy it if it stays low I think

WOW! Nice photos you guys.
It's a lens I would like for real estate photos, especially after seeing some of Riley's, our Ausie mates shots.

I did skip the 12-60 after reading a lot of problems with it and bought the 14-54 II instead. I read about the 9/18 also and it seems a pretty slow lens that not canīt be used everywhere around. If I should find a 7-14 at same price the 11-22 is atm then I should take that one I think
Thank you for your input.

The seller did erase his offer, I guess the price did stay to low.
So no extra lens for the moment
