    I don't know what camera you use or what you mean by wide.. But if you use Nikon or Canon DSLR and you want good value for money, I recommend the Tokina 12-24mm..

    Get the Nikkor 12-24mm DX.

    If you want a third-party, consider the Sigma 10-20mm or the Tokina 12-24mm.

    Check this out:

    The next golden question, what is your definition of wide? 10-20,12-24 are very wide, you might wanna look at 17-35 ranges of lens..get a fisheye if you want wider

    Next important question after what camera would be what will you want to use it for? You wanna do warped landscape effects or do you want to shoot general landscape with minimal distortion yet able to capture a wider area?
