For that budget, maybe the Sigma 10-20?

Tamaron 11/16 f/2.8 is a great piece of work- but, I suspect a shade above your proposed budget.

For Tamron version should be

- 11-18mm F/4.5-5.6
- 10-24mm F/3.5-4.5

instead.

With this budget only Tamron 10-24mm and the most lightweight & cheaper among all UWA zoom lens.

well 12-24 tokina well be just nice in the budget.
i would recommend tokina more than other simply because of the lens build
internal focusing and zooming !!

My bad. It is tikona and not tamaron.

(moral of the story #1: partying and posting do not mix, however simple it may seem)
(#2: avoid posting on weekends, when the probability of partying is higher.)

12-24 is better. More flexible for the zoom range. 11-16 is almost like a prime.

with your Budget I think u can consider Sigma 10-22? the variable aperture version (not the fixed f3.5 version as that cost S$1K +-)
