i have a sigma 10-20mm. i have a 17-50.
I had a 17-85 when I bought a 10-22. The ranges are very different, and consequently the usage. The standard zoom is still a good general purpose lens. You don't have to chuck it when you get an ultrawide, unless you really never use it.
My answer is very simple and so should also be yours and it is "Yes, if I have a need for this shorter zoom." The basis and rational approach to buying should always be buy what one need. So if I have a need for a shorter zoom than my current 18-55, then yes, else I keep my money for other needs. Ya, ya, I know it is easier said than done, however, the fact that you have to ask this question, it is not an impulsive buy. So yes buy it if you need it to cover the wider FOV and/or get closer short.Originally Posted by Sing Liang
understand! Thanks everyone!
You will cover a bigger range for your shooting. Why not?
Personally, I will.
yes, as they are different focal length
15-85 is the best choice kind of combination between the two, use for general purposes - landscape, portrait, street life, etc.
If you travel a lot, then buy 10-22. Unless, don't need such ultrawide lens for normal pic lah

Depends on your needs and shooting style really, i just traded my 17-50 for a tokina 12-24, and loving it. I enjoy shooting wide and have 35mm and 50mm primes to cover the rest of the focal lengths.
So yep, user dependant.

If i need FL of 10-22.. yea i will get.. why not. They are totally different.. you may think its just 8mm..but actually they are of very big differences.
yeah, today i went to shot near mbs and I think i miss UWA.
Anyway, below are the shot i shoot today. Please advice what I should improve.

Before 10-22, I was also considering the 15-85 too. But I went with the 10-22, so far no regrets, other than missing some framing at 55-85mm which I crop during PP. That said, I couldn't visualize well enough from a 55mm view to crop the 85mm view.
This will help to illustrate better at post #8.
I had an opportunity of having 2 cameras, an uwa lens and a kit lens (18-55) when shooting this. 2 photos at 10mm and the other at 18mm. See what you like to shoot and make a decision whether you want to get the 10-22.
Thank for your info. Your pic are nice
