i'd probably use it with the 17-55 or as a last resort with the 18-135.. (77mm or 67mm threads)

Well my Tokina 11-16 showed up today and it was for a Nikon. Frustrating to be told one thing and have the other show up.

I keep thinking of selling my 7d and going for a 5d to have all the great wide lens options. For me wide is key for my time laps.

The Zenitar 16mm is pretty affordable.

At the wide end, 1mm means a lot! going from 18 (29mm equivalent) to 15mm (24mm equivalent) is about as obvious in your framing as going from 200mm to 300mm.

Agree I would like to have a 8-10mm that is decent quality.

Since I can not find a Tokina 11-16 anywhere for sale. Did they stop making this?

Has anyone tried this lens?

Don't know about that Sigma, but the Tokina 11-16mm F2.8 is still made (as far as I know) but is in such demand that every time a shipment arrives they all seem to be pre-sold/fly off the shelves...

As it happens, I bought a Canon 10-22mm (instead of the Tokina) for my 7D and I'm absolutely delighted with it's performance - see my objective personal comparison between the two for video use on the link below and judge for yourself if it's a worthy choice for your wide specific angle needs. Today, I've just returned from the Arctic - where it produced some stunning images! There are advantages and disadvantages between these two wide angle lenses (for both stills and video). Both get very highly rated on photography review sites but I hope this helps you narrow the choice.

Thanks Andy,

I had a Canon 10-22 on my Birger mount with the Red One and it was nice. Would go for it in a second if it was faster. That is what had me looking at the Sigma 10mm.

Should be going to NYC in a few weeks maybe I will wait and test a few options.

There are rumours that Canon will eventually bring out a F2.0 wide angle - I think I read it somewhere on here that they have a patent for this - no idea how many months or years away that might be though!

Thanks Andy if I can't wait I will go for the 10-22. Agree who know when Canon would bring out a 2.0 wide.

Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM Lens Review

The above is a link to a review of the 10-22 Canon.

The site is very good for all Canon information. Mostly from a still photo viewpoint, but I find it very useful and full of information

Olof do you have this lens on your new 7d?

Paul,

I don't have that lens. I have not tried it yet. I have the 16-40L f4. It is a very nice lens, both on the 7 but on the 5DmkII it is really nice. One I often use on interior shots.

If you are still thinking of the 5DmkII, you may want to hold off. The 16-35l f2.8 is also a great lens and usable on FF cams later, but 2x the price. Though I am sure the 10-22 would be easy to sell with the 7D.
