Cool. I see that that 10-20 Sigma is available in one of my local stores. I'll be sure to try it out.

ooo, you got the 10-20, i have lens envy!

i'm pretty happy with my fisheye, though. it's pretty easy to de-fish and have really nice wide angles. 15mm cropped is pretty dang wide, i bet that 10mm look is huge!

I tried the Sigma 10-20 this afternoon and it was very nice and responsive. It had a version of the Canon USM so it focussed fast (of course it didn't have a big range to work with). I totally want it. However I don't have $650 to spend so I'll have to wait until next month if I want to pick it up.

Meryem: The 10mm is so big it can be disorienting sometimes :} Today I was posing objects right in front of the camera while using the finder, and I kept reaching far past where the stuff really was. I still want to get a fisheye some day but until then this thing is just stupid wide.

that's interesting. but i can't tell if you are happy or complaining about "stupid wide." is that stupid as in giddy woo-hoo or stupid as in stupid? is the lens marked at 15mm? i find that the sigma 15mm fisheye is just about right with my rebel. it's great for landscapes and things like bridges and RR tracks. more might be overkill. there's an 8mm out there which could probably take a shot of the back of my neck!

i love lens experiments.

Hehe, sorry :} I'm happy, the lens just has a crazy amount of view, there is some distortion, but I'm often surprised how little it really effects the picture. I don't even bother fixing it in post, someday I'll try it out of neglect.

Just think, somewhere, there has to be a 1mm. That's probably like, antelope-vision...
