Wide Angles

Anyone here got a good wide angle lens?

I was torn between the Canon 10-22mm and the Sigma 10-20mm after reading several reviews. Now, since there's a £200 difference, I'm thinking I'll go with the Sigma unless someone can say the Canon really is worth it. I don't have the cash to have lots of different types so I want one widey that'll do me for a long, long time.

The general consensus of reviews I've seen suggest that Sigma is the one to go for. The canon is better but perhaps not worth the extra cash. For £299, the Sigma seems to be doing it for me as a Christmas pressie for myself.

I've seen yet more reviews now and all say that the Canon is the slightly better lens, but it's not £200 better. I've never used a Sigma so it's good to have someone recommend them. I adore a Tamron I have but their wide angle reviews didn't look good.
