Wide Angle Lens for Canon Rebel XT

Does anyone know of a good wide angle lens for the Canon Rebel XT (not XTi)? I've been searching online trying to find some and I have, but I need sample pics. It'd be nice if I could find a website like this for still photography! A sample comparison like what DVinfo has for the XL2 lenses would be great!

Anyway, anyone know where I can find sample pics?

Just picked up the 10-22mm a few months ago and it's definitely become one of my favorite lenses. From dpchallenge.com, here are some samples from the Canon EF-S 10-22mm. And Fred Miranda's site has a good section with lens reviews. The only other Canon lenses that give you a "wide angle" on the Rebel XT series are the EF14mm, EF15mm fish-eye, EF16-35mm, and EF17-40mm.

That's perfect! That's the kind of lens I am looking for. A bit pricey but worth it!

Thanks for the link. I'll look into the others you mentioned. I eventually want to buy a fish eye as well, but right now, I just really want a wider field of view.

There are wide lenses by other manufacturers like Sigma and Tokina, but the Canon has pretty consistent thumbs up reviews, so I thought it was worth the extra $$$.
