    Both the Sigma and the Tamron are expensive and they aren't that great. The reason is a lens with such a great range, from wide angle to 14x telephoto, is hard to manufacture. There is a cheaper and better alternative. I assume you have the standard 18-55mm Canon lens which I assume you think is inadequate for shooting landscapes because it doesn't have a sufficiently long zoom. What about the Canon 55-250mm, which is a pretty good lens and cheap?

    I can second the recommendation for the Canon 55-250mm. I actually got one for Christmas and I am in love with it already. Great deal, too, in my opinion. Canon is the way to go, if you can do it.

    on the subject of lenses - I am looking for a wide angle lens for my Canon EOS T31. I currently have the standard 18-55 and the 55-250 lenses. This is my wife's camera and we usually is taking landscape phot0s and I need some advice on a reasonably priced wide angle lense to complement the two lenses she has.
