    For those of you familiar with this lens you know how amazing it is. I still can't get over the wide angle capabilities of it :eek4:
    All shot with a Digital Rebel XT and compressed a ton to fit here... I have many more and other sizes if people are interested.
    Classic sign :big grin:

    :cool: photos. What are the rides?

    sigma 10-20 here, and 10mm is awesome, i'd love to see an example of it on a FF sensor.

    And I can imagine you were about 2 feet from the sign? lol!

    you can't put any of those 10mm zooms on a full frame and get good results

    I was using the 10-22 on a canon 20d last night, it was very impressive for the price :bowdown:

    still considering this lens... just don't know if I will end up needed anything THAT wide. How many of those were actually taken at 10mm?

    The widest zoom for 35mm FF digital/film that you can get is the Sigma 12-24, I think.

    The Canon 10-22 is one of the best WA out there. Distortion is nicely controlled.

    I have the Sigma 10-20 for Nikon, the distortion at 10mm is just aweful. I would've gone with the Tokina if they sell those in Canada :wtc:

    yeh? my pics are pretty straight with the 10-20.

    Ive found out that it ends up producing a pretty much circular image vignette into nothingness on 35mm, damn :p

    I didn't think I needed anything that wide either, but once you start taking pictures with the lens it really is impressive how much you can fit in the frame. Picture 2, 3, 6 and 7 are at 10mm. Here is another at 10mm:

    The ride that shots you out over the edge is called the X-Scream, I forgot the name of the other one that spins out over the edge, the big shot is still up there and the roller coaster is shut down :down: These are all at the Stratosphere 900 feet up in the air...

    Well this is a crappy example, but it does kinda shows you the distortion at 10mm

    im sure mine isnt quite so spherical, maybe ive never noticed, I'll take a shot like that tonight.

    But hey, its like the FF 15-16mm equiv on a cropped sensor, you cant really get any wider so I wouldnt expect perfect results.

    Well, it's not that it's not "perfect". It's just that the distortion on the Sigma can't be easily corrected.

    Where the the distortion of the Tokina and the Canon (which also goes to 10mm) can be more easily corrected using PS.
