thanks for all the opinions. it's good to know that i can't go wrong with any. the links put up here for me to see are nothing short of spectacular

by the way, is there anyplace i can compare the field of view between 10mm and 12mm? i do vaguely remember a thread here where someone did a comparison at a lake(or someplace like that). i'd like to know if the difference is as vast as i'm imagining it to be.
Well of course the difference is ca. 20% but you can see for yourself here :

Sigma 8-16mm f/4.5-5.6 DC HSM Lens Review

It's a review of the Sigma 8-16 but shows you the difference in a variety of focal lengths.

I think an interesting poll might be "Who would swap their current UWA lens for a DA10mm Limited?"

I have the DA 10-17 and it's a total hoot to shoot with. I also have the Sigma 10-20 and it's a very fine lens as well. If I were just starting into the UWA arena I'd look hard at the Sigma 8-16 as a first lens. It's nosebleed wide, with little distortion. I'd have gone this route myself had it been available when I got the 10-20.

Have fun choosing, I even you not!

Got both the DA12-24 and Sigma 10-20.. the sigma has wider fov even comparing both @12mm
and has better distortion control on the extreme edges

Has the Sigma 12-24mm been mentioned? It's not in the poll and my understanding (no experience) is that it's a very good lens.
