    Solely going by numbers, I'd look at the 10-17, especially as it fits your kit lens so nicely. The 15mm buys you almost nothing but f/ 2.8, the primary benefit of which is the ability to focus in low light, and since you have an AF camera. . . .

    I like the fixed aperture of the 12-24, but again, with TTL everything, so what?

    If the reviews are all more-or-less equal, I like the 10-17.

    This is a uniquely uninformed opinion.
    Yeah, that's pretty much my view too....

    then again I could get one of those $65 screw-on fisheye things and go for complete distortion! Those things just can't be that great, just the fact it screws on... each time slightly different focal distance... naw....

    I use an older Canon D-60.

    I have three lenses. I use the EF 17-40mm f/4L USM 99% of the time, since it's perfect for both portraits close to the subject:


    and landscapes:


    I also have a EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM and a EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM lens. The IS can't be praised enough. It simply allows long zoom shots in marginal light or of moving subjects without the use of a tripod - a huge advantage, in my opinion.

    I do have a Hakuba carbon fiber tripod w/ Really Right Stuff quick release clamp and mounting plates. I use a Sigma EF 530 DG Super Flash EO-ETTL as my speedlight, and a nifty Pelican case to keep everything but the flash and the tripod safe from water, sand, dirt, etc.

    that was more of a poll, I was looking for more information/review of what you had and why so that others looking to buy could get some ideas of what features the average Joe or Joan, end user likes/dislikes.
