I have the sigma 10-20. So far quite happy, got it for less than $150 usd, so hard to beat. I agree with bertrand3000, wider isn't always better, but of course that depends on what you have to shoot🙄. I do a fair amount of car shows, and going WIDE and LOW on the bumper makes a great shot, but ultra wide can actually just be annoying there as the distortion isn't always flattering to the vehicle. Now when I'm doing an interior shot, like a dashboard, there is no other way and that's when you're happy you have some extra leeway with your lens. On my full frame K1 II and Nikon bodies, I have Tokina Atx 19-35 as well as an older rmc Tokina 17mm. Nice as 17mm is, it seldom comes out of the bag; the 19-35 on full frame in my opinion is most versatile/useful. Converting that focal length for your sensor, again, you probably won't use the ultra wide as much. Your mileage may vary...😃
