    so after all of that, you ended up getting a 10-22mm :)

    MR CEASAR: when oppertunity knocks!

    I saw a relatively cheap EFS 10-22mm so that covered my wide angle needs - so i bought it. It replaces the 18-50 because i bought the 18-50 for its wide angle properties. Now the canon will take care of that. The Tamron will take over after that as its awesome, i like it etc...

    I forgot that i have the Sigma comming when i bought the EFS10-22mm as i was in a rush. I cant keep both.

    [EDIT (Gibbon) : removed trading stuff - please start a thread in the For Sale forum for selling anything. You're welcome to link it in here when it's set up to let people know]

    The Tamron 17-35 and 28-75 are what Minolta have badged as theirs apparently. I have both and am more than happy with the quality.

    Mate, I'm tempted but it's digital only, vingetting on full frame. :(

    Very good review (complete with Engrish ;)) here for it.

    On a side note, looking at the bottom left sample image, shoreline and boats etc, is this the normal amount of noise for the Nikon ? I assume that the shot would have been taken at the lowest setting (ISO 200 ?).
