Not sure what you'll be shooting but right now i'm enjoying shooting panoramas...that's my current wide. that's another option to consider while hunting down your optimum wide.

You can probably score a used 16-45 with some shopping around. Mine was ~$220 thanks to the ebay/ deal (that's at 20%, or at least was last night when I got the 30/1.4). I love mine, though it did require an AF adjustment on my K20D.

Does anyone have the Tamron 17-35? I see it has great reviews in places. As good as or better than the Tammy 28-75. It can be had for under $300. I am going to need a wide when I start getting out next season hiking again and this one looks pretty good. I like the range and speed.
