subscribing - thanks for posting pictures! I almost pulled the trigger on this lens last week but I was one of the fortunate ones to get the tokina 11-16mm from B&H. If this lens changes my mind, i'll be selling my brand new Tokina to get this bad boy. Keep the pictures coming!

Rented this lens at a local shop over the weekend to see how I liked it. I snapped off 1k + shots at the Joe Martin Stage race. Once I can go through them I will post some good examples. I did get a sweet video that I will post the link to once it is up.

I'm excited to see other examples and the shots posted so far are ver nice!

Here are some of the photos I took with the lens last weekend. So far I really like it. 8mm is pretty freak'n wide, 10 to 16 is pretty nice. But wish it had the 2.8 like the Tokina.

This is so difficult....8mm or f/2.8....great shots so far from this lens.

That's my dilemma too. Adorama raised the price on the Tokina to $649, which makes the Sigma a bit more attractive too..!
