Hello,

I considering buying a wide angle lens for my canon 550D for shooting interiors and landscapes and I have narrowed my choices to these two, but from the reviews I have read, it seems that canon is not so sharp, and the tokina has a huge chromatic aberration.

I wonder if anyone who have used these two lenses could write some comments here telling his/her own experience with them and point out a link to DT images taken with any these ?

So you want to have everything in focus... buy a compact camera, it's more than enough for stock photography. You can even consider drawing the interior in a vector software, it's very easy and sells better :)

Back to the subject, If I were you I would buy Tokina.

Thanks Bogdanzagan, ... I already have a compact camera ;-)

But I never said I wanted everything in focus. What I meant is that from the reviews I have read, the photographs taken with the canon lens are not very sharp, especially at the edges of the image, and that is why I would like to hear someone else
firsthand experience with these lenses.

I took this picture this winter with the Tokina AF 11-16mm f/2.8 AT-X Pro DX.

Its sharp as a tack and wonderful to use.

Don't write off the sigma 10-20 f3.5....I have the older version of this lens and I am loving it. Tack sharp and very competitive with the other two lenses. I use it for all my landscape images.

+1 to Sigma 10-20 f4-5.6 - totally professional results; much less flare than Tokina, and in UWA you normally don't need faster apertures (probably with the exception of star trails).

Thanks Del69, what about CA in high contrast scenarios ? What is the performance of the lens ?
