    I'm thinking of buying canon 10-22 (Sigma 10-20mm out becuase cannot use MD) becuase i love to take land/city scapes.

    Don't think I will be using 18-55 if I buy 10-22... (Maybe I am wrong)

    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.

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.

    I do use my kit lens at times even after getting the 10-20mm.

    The latter has limited reach, 18-55 will still have its uses, and still better than cropping output from 10-20mm.

    You will cover a bigger range for your shooting. Why not?

    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.

    imo, I was once the same as you, thinking that 18mm wasn't enough for the MBS or the scenery shots, but after getting my 10-22, I find that for many things, it became too wide at 10mm and many times for the MBS, my framing was at 15-17mm. If you are going to buy 10-22, I really suggest that you rent it for now and see if you like it or not.

    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.

    Both will still be useful depending on what you like to frame into your photo.

    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.
