Hi guys, my wife finally says it is ok for me to buy a lens for my birthday in a few months. I have t2i with:

18-135mm
55-250mm
50mm 1.8

Any suggestion what I should get?

What do you want to do that you can't do (easily) now?

Macro?
Ultra-wide angle?
Something else?

Probably uwa. I am thinking about getting 10-22 or sigma 10-20. Either that or replacement of 18-135, maybe.

Well... you lenses sound like a great set in the "not-so-pricey" range. The only things missing in the payable price range are a ultra wide angle lens and a macro lens - upgrading the existing lenses is a bit more expensive.
Personally I chose to get the macro lens first. That's something I use very often while the uwa is rather special. OK, but I really like mine.
