If you want to claim that it is the best "value" in an UWA (since it is about 1/3 the price of the Nikon), go for it. To claim that it is the premier UWA, even if you restrict the selection to zooms, is just wrong.
I suppose I should have qualified it as the most economical or cost-effective UWA. I've never used the 14-24, probably because its cost would require me to pawn all of my possessions just to lay a hand on it. I'm not that big into photography to drop that amount on glass. Yet. Besides, isn't it good practice to blindly and arbitrarily advocate whatever you have as the best?

I would love to play in the UWA thread, but since my Olympus camera has a 2x crop factor my 11-22 would be an equivalent of 22-44 in 35mm. The few that shoot Olympus always get left out.

NOT TRUE! By almost any measure, most folks would consider 24mm and under to be ultra-wide in 35mm equivalence. So if you've got shots with your 11-22 lens shot at 11 or 12mm, they should still be in range!

Here's a few shots I took with the Olympus 11-22mm f/2.8-3.5, it's definitely UWA @ 11mm, if only just. It was my favorite lens while I was a 4/3rds user.

Oly shooters aren't left out, but there aren't any third party options that go SUPER wide. The Oly 7-14mm f/4 is superb (with a price to match). I haven't had any experience with the 9-18mm f/4-5.6 as it came out right as I sold my E-510.

11mm, f/2.8, 1/60 sec, ISO 400

More UWA Disney goodness..

I wish I had gone lower ISO on many of my shots, many times I had plenty of room on shutter speed. That was a general problem I had on our trip, I wasn't lugging a tripod around and I could have pushed UWA + IS much further than I did, but I hadn't had the lens for very long and was still getting used to UWA.

I'm not officially in the cult yet, but here is one I took when Quicklabs and I met at a local metro park. She let me borrow her Sigma 10-20.

Ughhhhhhhhhhh

What the heck? First you people make me go out and buy the Sigma 30mm f/1.4 and now I have to go out and get a UWA lens?!

I LOVE these!!! I leave in 9 days so that's not enough time to get one for Disney, but I really love these and now I want one!!

Anyone have an opinion on the best? (I'm a Canon user... so no Nikon's for me )

Sigma 10-20mm and Tokina 11-16 looks like the main two... I need something somewhat affordable, I'm saving up for an L series

Just when I had convinced myself I don't really need a UWA, I stumble upon this thread of incredible pictures!

Take a look at the Tokina 12-24. The older version is $399. As I understand it, the only major difference between the older version and the new version at $499 is a focus motor. So, for Canon the focus motor is a non-issue.
