    Morning all,
    anyone got any reccomendations for a decent ultra wide lens without breaking the bank? less than 20mm preferably, yeah i know i could go and read every photography review and comparison on the internet about ultra wides but id reather hear real life opinions from people doing the same kind of photos as me, low light, tight spaces, grotty locations etc etc. Any and all advice is greatly appreciated, except silly advice telling me i need a 3k 15mm zeiss lens or something stupid like that, value for money is the aim of the game here please, thank v muchly for your time ladys and jellyspoons.

    Sigma 10-20mm f4-5.6 is amazing at around the £300 mark

    I was lucky enough to get a sigma few years ago cheap or I wouldn't have bothered the glass isn't great.

    The Tokina is much better quality.

    If full frame try the 14-24 or 16-35

    The latter isn't as wide as the 10mm dx or the 14mm fx

    Sigma 10-20 is a class peice of glass, slightly wider than Tok. Much better lens. Get one second hand

    No complaints with the Sigma here. I had a walk around M'cr city centre a few weeks ago and snapped these with it:

    Much better lens? Than what? The only thing the Sigma is better at is being exponentially slower.

    Rubbish the Tokina is miles faster & sharper

    The build quality is better on the Sigma though I'll give it that !

    Yes, for what we do here the Sigma is better. Who cares if it's slow, I only use it on f8on a tripod. Even 2.8 is pretty usless, you want fast, use a prime. It's also slightly wider and cheaper. Ergo, better imo

    Plus one for the Tokina here, i found the barrel distortion on the Sigma cringeworthy. And I'm used to shooting fisheye...
