    Hello,

    I'm currently using a canon rebel SLR camera and wanted a really good wide angle lens. I'm into shooting cars and bikes and really wanted a good lens to get the best out of my photos. I'm very new to photography so don't really know where to go. I see all these lenses on ebay but wanted to ask before I pull the trigger on anything. Any information will greatly appreciated.

    Thank you

    Canon 10-22 is also really good. It has less distortion than my Siggy 10-20. And its faster f/ 3.5 instead of f/4

    Ditto. Takes gorgeous pictures. A bit pricey, but you pay for what you get (haggle with the good man behind the counter, he could knock up to $400 off the lens).
