    Wide angle lenses are not very cheap...although there may be some that are cheap & crappy.

    What are you looking for? 24mm, 20mm, 17mm

    Have a look at Sigma & Tamron...they have lenses comparable to some of the Canon lenses but usually for a lower price.

    I've had good results from my 22-55mm zoom lens. They were the original kit lens with the IX lite aps cameras. Inexpensive and works great with both my 10d and Elan.

    I have a Tamron 17-35mm lens. It works great on a 1.6x DSLR, but I can't vouch for it full frame. You have to expect a little loss of sharpness and light on the edges of any wide angle lens though, even L glass.
