I have the Tokina and love it. The zoom range is a great feature and makes framing much easier in situations where you can't always move the camera closer. And depending on how you use it, it can either be quite fishy, or not very fishy at all.

The Canon is not terribly fishy on a 1.6 crop camera. I would second the suggestion of the fisheye zoom. It is, I believe, designed for a crop sensor, so will not work on a full-frame (or indeed, a 1.3 crop cam), but if you're not interested in getting one of those in the short term, it won't matter anyway.

The tokina will give you a full fisheye effect @ 10mm on a 1.5 crop, 12mm on a 1.3 crop, and 15mm on full frame.

Samples on a 1D mII and 20D

I have a Canon 10-20mm wide angle that gets pretty soft at 10mm. Are there any problems of quality at 10mm with the Tokina?

You buy a fish for the effect, not the MTF. It's decent, though...

You'll run into CA and PF issues in the corners, but those are easily dealt with by most RAW converters.
