I don't think you can get anything worse than the vitacon :bsmilie:
Read the reviews (dpreview.com; photozone.de); check price guides and Buy&Sell. If your wide angle starts with 19mm and you are on crop sensor body better stick to kit lens. A decent wide angle needs a few bucks more. Read up about hyperfocal distance, DOF and aperture to get sharp images. Tripod comes handy as well.
