For my wide angle, I use a Sigma 10-20mm F4-5.6 EX DC and I am very happy with it.

I usually end up with Sigma lens over the Nikon lens because of the price differences. I will never buy another Tamroon ot Tokia. never liked any of the ones I've owned or used.

I have to say, a fish-eye lens has some appeal to me, but....

I was considering that Sigma since it had a wider zoom than the Tokina but I'd prefer a faster lens, especially for a wide-angle which I'd probably be using in low light situations often. I have the Sigma 17-70 and it's a helluva lot better constructed than any of the Canon consumer lenses that I have. I just noticed that they have a 10-20 f/3.5, not cheap though... edit: nevermind, looks like the price dropped significantly. Dammit, back to the decision board.
