I am very happy with my Canon 10-22mm EF-S. I had seriously considered the Tokina 11-16mm 2.8, but decided to try the Canon first. I find the 10-22mm very handy for crime scenes, teamed with a 35L and Macro 100L. The 10-22mm can also be a fun walking-around lens, as the sole lens for the day, though it requires a mental adjustment if one is accustomed to longer focal lengths.

Though the 10-22mm's aperture cannot open as wide as its Tokina competitor's, longer exposures on a tripod make a wide aperture less needed, and landscapes and architecture would, for most folks, be shot stopped-down quite a bit, anyway, to get deeper DOF. (I am speaking from the point of view of crime scene photography, which incorporates elements of landscape and architecture photography.) I often do shoot with my prime lenses at wide apertures, but do not seem to find myself wishing for that capability when shooting ultra-wide.

Having said that, I keep reading and hearing good things about the Tokina, and may well try one, someday. To be clear, I do not consider myself an authority; more like a serious beginner.

Canon 5Ds R/7D2/7D/5D/40D/1D2N/M3; Nikon F6/D3s/D700/FM3A/1Dx/Coolpix A. Lens selection undergoing changes; some favorites: Zeiss 2/135 APO Sonnar, Canon 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS and 135L, Nikkor 14-24/2.8G and 24-70/2.8G.

See here;

All with the Sigma 10-20mm F/4-5.6 bar the first one. I agree with what someone else said about longer exposures and tripods.

It still confuses me when people debate whether a landscape lens or any lens they're thinking of using at night should be worth £200 extra when really they should be using it on a tripod, at it's lowest ISO setting, closed down to F/8-11.

Ironically, I didn't use a tripod for any of the images in the above link, it was the hottest day of the year, never felt sun like it.
