Great! All this information helps a ton with my decision. I guess I'm no different from most of us trying to decide what is best now and most applicable in the future. Oh, to have a ton of money!

wanted to add the Tokina 11-16 to this discussion thread. Ken Rockwell says "Considering its bargain price of under $600, its the world's best ultrawide lens for digital SLRs." and Philip Bloom recommends it in this post which is generally useful when making lens decisions Which…lenses to buy? | Philip Bloom
Love my Tokina!

Re: What's a versital wide angle for video and stills?

For what it is worth, I shoot video more and more on my 7D and I have been really liking the results of my Canon 15-85 f/3.5-5.6 IS USM lens coupled with ND filters. I can go wide or frame the shot how I want with the zoom. Open up the aperture and then bring down the exposure in sunlight with ND filters as needed. It has been a very nice video and walk around photo lens for me. $700 new on most sites or under $500 used in many places. I got mine used of of ebay for around $450 with a uv filter. Thing looked brand new and has been excellent to date.

Just something to consider.

The Canon EF-S 17-55 2.8 is an ideal allround lens for cropfactor DSLR's. There is currently one for sale at the Private classifieds part of the forum.

Derek, I did just buy a ND filter to experiment with. Garbor, I'll check that out too.
Thanks!
