    Does anyone know of a good lens (very wide) that has a large aperture? at least 2.8? Any experience?

    Nikon and canon both make 14mm f/2.8's, and Nikon just announced the 14-24 f/2.8 if you're partial to zooms.

    The widest you can go is the sigma 10-20, but it's not f/2.8.
     
  3. Canon makes an excellent 16-35mm wide angle. They just came out with the Mark II version, and you can still get the older one - which I have and love.

    I think f4 is the number you will find with true wide angles for the APS format camera you have. The others are discussing modest wide angles, not "very wide" as you put it. "Very wide" on your camera would be 10-12mm in focal length.
