    I want a new wide-agle lens for my XTi, but I'm just a beginner.

    I was checking out the Sigma 10-20mm, but the lowest price I could get it for is $510. Are there any good recommendations for the XTi?

    Also, are there any wide angle lenses for Canon that are under $300?

    Find a new or used 10-22mm Canon EF. I am extremely happy with this lens (both when it was on my XT and now as it's on my 40D). The Sigma lens is about the same price so you might as well go for the Canon glass. Also get the lens hood with it, makes a big difference.

    I have Sigma 10 - 20 also, and no complains about it! :) Sharp, nice colors, fast AF, and it comes with a lense bag and lens hood!

    But you have to check your copy when you buy ir or get it! So there would no defects as back focus etc.
