Guys any suggestions?

Which super wide lens do you think performs best? My reason to buy one would be:

Super Wide Reach
Sharpness in Pictures
Very Good Color Rendetions
Moderate Distortions and Chroma if at all and
Last but not least all under $500 budget :)

Not sure why you bothered making this poll, and then banging the '500 dollar budget' bit in there. Not sure what you think you'll get for 500 US. :?

On Amazon.com i found the Siggy for $479 and the Tammy for a similar price, although the Tokina is rather more expensive.

Hang on, why is this in the 'User Reviews' Section?? Should it not be in the Nikon section, Mods?

The best is the Sigma. :) Better than the Nikon,because of the lower price tag.

Poll's are BAD ways of picking gear. You have no clue of the quality of the responses and the competence of those responding, as you would get when people post written answers.

I would prefer buying used lens if the Nikon and Tokina seems to be expensive...

But as far as I have digged out reviews and analysis on couple of known websites I found Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6 as a top lens in the pack. I think I will got with it, the new Sigma 10-20mm f/3.5 is way too costly (GBP 650) than the current model.

Where's the Zuiko 7-14mm? Look at Gordon's review and you know who the winner is!
