I have that and its pretty dope. If you have something at the 18-35 range i would definitely go with this. It is awesome for wide angle shots. I use it for my school newspaper shots all the time. Its pretty sharp too. The only downside (to me) is the limited focal length, but if you have something covering 18-35ish you should be all set.
and something to watch out for with really wide angle shots: dont put the subject anywhere near the edge or they will look all stretched out.
also: if you arent opposed to dropping some money of your own, have you thought about going 1/2 and 1/2 in on the 70-200 f2.8? I am doing that with my parents this xmas.
