Is there one? If not, how about a sub-17mm wide angle? Primes are okay, even preferred.
If cost is an issue you might want to look at using an old manual focus (probably M42 screw-mount) lens with an adapter. I think there are some old Russian lenses that would fit the bill.
Thanks.. I've heard of those.. Zenitar I think? Can you use FD-mount lenses with an adapter on the Rebel XT?
I think with FD lenses you would lose infinity focus because of different spacing. It might be possible to get an FD-EF adapter with optical elements to retain infinity focus, but then I guess it would act as a teleconverter and defeat the point of the wide-angle lens.
Canon makes a 10-22mm wide angle.
They sure do... all depends on how we define "inexpensive"
The Peleng 8mm fisheye is one of the cheapest that you can get. You can get it in EOS mount. Unfortunately it is a manual focus and manual aperture lens.
