You're right, optically there's not much to choose between the two. The 15 Limited is a bit sharper in the center and the 10-20 is a little better in the corners. The 15 has better flare resistance. Vignetting & distortion are too close to call.

So based on guys have me leaning toward the 15! Mostly because of its size & build but hey those are worth something.

The size & filter thread is really appealing. I tend to like zooms on paper, until I have to carry them around. Plus I tend to get a bit lazy with composition if i can zoom instead of move myself. I could bring the 15, 35, 50 & 70-210, cover pretty much all my bases and only need 1 polarizer (unless I want to bring the 17-50 or F 135).

Sounds reasonable to me. I have both the 15 Ltd and the 10-20, and the 15 is always with me (as is the 35 2.4) because of the size. The Sigma is a lot wider, though, but too heavy to come along "just in case".

I think I would choose the 15 over the 10-20 if I could have just one. Hmm, or maybe the 8-16...
