Finding a wide angle lens for you t2i, 60d, or 7d can be a little hard thanks to the crop factor created by the APS-C size sensor (1.6x lens focal length). On a full frame camera 16mm to 35mm is what I would consider wide angle, but on a APS-C sensor 35mm is about 56mm (not very wide). That’s where the Tokina 11-16mm f2.8 lens comes in. At 11mm on an APS-C sensor camera you have about 17mm and at 16mm you have about 26mm. That’s a pretty good wide angle range and a fixed f2.8 is faster then Canons 10-22mm f3.5-4.5.

The Tokina 11-16mm f2.8 is a great wide angle lens for crop sensor cameras. It’s very sharp, very quiet, and uses a standard 77mm filter size. I would consider this lens to be the best wide angle option for APS-C cameras in its price range.
