    Got myself the Sigma 10-20mm wide angle lens the other day.

    I've been wanting a wide angle mainly for outside shots and stuff. I love this lens already, and I haven't even taken a step outside yet! (Mainly because it's terribly cold at the moment)

    I know this lens can be used for all kinds of nature shots, but I am wondering, can you make it work for other things too? Like people, for example?

    And if you've used this lens, post your pictures or something :) I've seen a lot of good reviews on this lens! :wink:

    It's an amazing lens! Congratulations! I use this thing more often than I really should, even for portraits sometimes. I'm just going to fill this post up with a bunch of example shots to show you how awesome this lens is:

    Thanks! I am extremely happy to have bought this, especially for my first actual decent lens, haha.

    Edit: Those are some nice pictures!

    Are you not supposed to use the lens for portraits? haha, cause I might be doing the same thing a few times :)

    Hey! Stop laughing, it's not funny that you were lucky to have bought it at a bargain price and I won't be able to obtain it until later and probably at a much higher price. lol nah I am just kidding I don't really care that I may will pay a lil bit more course when it comes to things I really want to get I actually would care less about the price. I wouldn't be surprised that they may will have another sale during Easter :p I kinda really want to buy that lens because the incredibly wide image it seems to be able to take and the quality also seems to be better than excellent at least judging from the photos you have taken and those uploaded by others.

    Congratz on the new lens.



    The older lens (the one used to take #1) has some problems with finding vertical methinks. :lol:

    Congrat on the lens, I've got one and love it. I've used it mainly for landscapes but once and a while for people and street photography.
