    I've been searching for a while now to try & find a good Wide Angle lens for my Canon 1000D DSLR. I've got a budget of £250-£300, but £300 is the utmost max, so more £250.

    I've been looking at a few Tamron lens, but the Sigma lens also come with a good rep. :suicide:

    Could I have a few recommendations from people who use/have any wide angle lenses? :smashin:

    How wide is wide?

    The kit lens is 18-55mm (if you have it?) so if that isn't wide enough for you then you probably need to look at an ultra wide angle like the Sigma 10-20. Otherwise, the standard wide zoom that gets recomended a lot around here is the Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8.

    I sold the kit lens to buy the 55-250 IS lens. The 17-50 does look like a good lens. Thanks for your opinion. :smashin:
