Given that you're talking about the 10-22, I assume you have a crop camera. 15mm on a crop camera is not really wide enough. The 10-22 is much wider. I have it and I personally love it. But, it doesn't have the fisheye effect. If you want to go wide and with the fisheye effect, have a look at the Sigma 10mm fisheye.
Quoting NZ107 (Reply 1): Others out there say that the Sigma 10-20 is better.
No chance! The Sigma has a bit better build quality, but image quality-wise the Canon is better. The Sigma might be considered better value for money though (if, and that's big if, you get a good copy).
Nikon: we don't want more pixels, we want better pixels.

Quoting SNATH (Reply 3): if, and that's big if, you get a good copy
Exactly right. I bought one, and it was atrocious - only the centre of the image was sharp, and all the edges were blurry. I exchanged it for another copy; the new one was better but still not the image quality I expected; to get acceptable sharpness over all the image, I had to close the aperture at least to f/11. Had it serviced by Sigma a few weeks ago, and now it is excellent, all sharp even at f/4. I finally have the lens I wanted but only after so much hassle.
Not sure about that. I've done some research, and I've read quite a few accounts stating that Sigma 10-20 image is is sharper than that of the Canon 10-22 (that is, if you get a good copy of the Sigma).
Some people suggested, when buying a Sigma 10-20, one should try it in store.
I'm not defending the Sigma, and I believe they should have better quality control. But I'm just trying to be fair. I know a few people, a couple of them being also A.net photographers, who are absolutely happy with their Sigma 10-20. And so am I, now that I got it fixed.
