    I know there are a ton of these threads, but I'm in a market for a good wide angle or a fisheye. Something within 10-17mm. I'm currently using a Canon Rebel XT.

    Any recommendations? I don't want anything highly expensive.

    10-17? In that range, I'd have to say the Tokina 10-17 is the obvious choice. :)

    Tokina 12-24: a lot cheaper than Canon's lens and, for all intents and purposes, just as good. Tokina lenses are sturdy and they sell quite cheap. I've seen them for about $375 on craigslist (used) or $500 on bhphoto. You can find more reviews of this lens here (Photozone) and here (Ken Rockwell).
