First of all, Sam has a Nikon :P

The 10-22 from personal experience does give a slight fisheye effect at 10mm. I like it - it's a nice lens. Others out there say that the Sigma 10-20 is better.

At the end of the day, it comes down to the point of whether you were wanting a fisheye or more of a standard type lens.

Crisp backgrounds come from a lot of different things; probably the main one being depth of field. Also the better the glass inside the lens, the better the picture quality.
It's all about the destination AND the journey.

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.

No chance!  Smile 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).

If you want a real 180 degree diagonal fisheye for your crop camera, look to the Sigma 10mm.

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.

Cheers,
Andrei

I really wonder how Sigma can make money with all the returns and repairs... Sure, they don't spend much on QA, but it really shows!

Well that's good to know! A long way away but I think I'll eventually get this lens. I just haven't had the best experience with Sigma and I'd rather stick to Canon.

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.

Cheers,
Andrei
