What wide angle lens should I buy for my 350D
What lens would be best for landscapes, especially ocean and mountsins, for my Digital Rebel XT Canon 350?
Welcome to BP. Tamron makes a 17-50mm f/2.8, At a very reasonable price for the quality. Here is a link to another discussion with more info.
I hope this helps

I prefer CAnon EF-s 10-22
I have also CAnon EF 16-35, so great lens.
I heard alot love Canon 17-40
I got Sigma 12-24 as well, it is good but better on Full Frame cameras but not so supreme quality as Canon "L" lenses.
Sigma got 10-20 as well, got positive reviews.
I heard that Tokina have also 12-24, nice good quality as well.
So you have all these lenses you can choose anyone depends on your budget and another factors so.
Wide angle for landscapes? I don't think so:
because whichever wide angle lens you choose, you will also get the associated wide angle perspective distortion: a tree 30 yards away will look as if it's 300 yards away...
One way to avoid this is photo stitching: you DON'T need a wide angle lens (in fact it's unuseable for stitching), and you get HUUUGE super high-res files with stunning detail that no wide angle lens can ever match!
