Thanks David:)
I've been interested in this lens for awhile but have so far concentrated on buying decent tele lenses.
Very nice

So glad you like it! The sale partially funded my "upgrade" to a wider but slower f4 Sigma 10-20. Hope to have some test pics to post soon. Really missing f1.8, so I found some pocket change and picked up the infamous 50mm 1.8. It will be here tomorrow. Getting set for a NYC trip in a few weeks...

The sigma 20 1.8 is a fine lens. I've had one for quite some time. Very sharp, and focuses *very* close. A little "buzzy", but it does fine. Nice buy for $3-400. I think I managed to get mine for about $300 last year.

Nice shots, David.

I'd love to see a few on full-frame..... (pondering)

How did it do at 1.8 and 2? And how was it in low light?

It does great. At 1.8 100 iso i was even getting a little overexposure :shock:

Grego, if you are interested, theres a group who do free Shakespeare plays around the LA area. http://shakespearebyth​esea.orgexternal link They love volunteer photographers if you ever feel the urge to shoot some theatre. The costumes are beautiful. I took these at Hamlet in San Pedro. Pt Fermin Park. 1.8 of course.

Ooh thanks for the recommendation and the volunteer thing. I actually have been shooting in Long Beach at Cal State Long Beach because of the Summer Pro League.

I'll keep this in mind. Thanks. :)
