Playing around with my new Sigma. Too lazy to edit out the lines the planes caused in the sky lol.

After viewing hundreds of these photos I'm glad I have one arriving Friday. I ordered it mainly for landscapes. The problem I have around here is trying find scenery worth shooting, especially in a winter without snow. I've seem some awesome landscapes shots on this thread.

Wide angles are for a lot more than landscapes! This page is a favorite of mine: How to Use Ultra-Wide Lenses (external link)

Wow Mr. Fish, that's a bunch of reading material. I saved it as a fave and will be going over it tomorrow. Thanks for posting the link.

That link above does help. I like shooting landscapes too, but I guess only the person who shoots the landscape knows how amazing it is, but others view the image like a regular photo because they weren't there at the time of the picture, if that makes sense. Have to use the distortion to your advantage to give it a cool perspective. Lot of cool pictures can be had with the lens, I barely got mine and haven't had a chance to try it out.

Here's another photo, I like how the lines on the ground give that wide angle look.

Does anyone on this thread regret not getting the Canon 10-22? I'm currently deciding between the two. How does the Sigma handle flare & do with starbursts?

I just finished the reading material posted (yep, already) and see that the writer recommends against using a polarizer with these lenses. Well, I have one coming. Maybe the polarizers have improved since that article was written? What say you?

I had some issues and ended up exchanging for the Canon 10-22. I still think the Sigma is a great lens so you my want to do some research and see which will work best for you.

The link below is the first pic I took with the Sigma 10-20 when I got it (posted earlier in this thread). I was so close to the truck in this picture I could reach out and touch it. The 10-20 did an AMAZING JOB! I never would've thought to use a wide angle for a pic like this if I hadn't read the link I posted above on how to use wide angles.

Truck - first pic with Sigma 10-20

DaveKosiba - what kind of issues did you have? Just curious.
