    yeah, I have it. Its ok, not the greatest in the world. I wish I would saved up for the 17-40 instead. I don't really like Sigma stuff, but apparently they have a decent 20mm.

    Here's a few, from my 10D. Notice how the 1.6x factor really limits the field of view

    umm, no


    I'll trade of for a 17-40 one of these days, but for now I just bought a 135mm F/2 L, so it won't be anytime soon.

    Sorry, wasn't directed to you.

    The 135L sure is a fine lens ain't it? : bigthumb :

    damn, 1.6x does really ruin the 20mm.

    this just makes me want to buy the d70 more with the kit lens :o :o

    ive got cannon stuff right now though :hs: but nothing on the high end
