    My Mother has been talking about how her lens dosn't capture alot of space so she needs a wide angle lens for her Canon rebel "G" camera it is film and I don't think she is looking to spend alot. I looked on eBay and only found attachment lens' that were advertised as a "fisheye wide angle macro zoom lens" so I didn't trust that. Does anyone have a good resourse for a wide angle lens? Under $100... It can be used.

    Thanks.

    What's her current widest lens?

    I found this one on amazon for less than 100$, but I'd never heard about it until today. Other than that, this and this are the two cheapest ones I found.

    You don't say what lens she already has, so it's difficult to say what's good for wider. KEH.com has an EX+ 24mm for $139, a Sigma 24mm for $105 and a new 50mm f/1.8 for $74.

    They also have a Tokina 20-35mm for $89 and a Sigma 24-70 for $69. Stay away from anything below marked BGN though.

    Then I guess the 105$ 24mm Sigma suggested by compuwar would be the best choice then... I'm not sure the other 24mm (the cheaper one) if for full frame cameras.
