Canon: Sigma 14mm 2.8 - Great wide angle for the money!
I like Canon "L" lenses a lot, but there are some times where finding bargains is a good way to go. The Sigma 14mm 2.8 is a really nice lens. It's solid and pretty heavy, image quality is quite good, and it's just Wiiiiiiidddddeeeee! It doesn't focus super fast (not needed for a lens like this) and with the rounded lens, you can't put a filter on to prot ect the glass (be careful!), and lens flare is easy to achieve (the positive spin ).
I use the lens at least as much as anything else in my bag as I love the perspective.
