I'm thinking about getting this lens for my A-100. I'm heading to Italy in just over 4 weeks and want a good wide angle lens to be able to capture the entire landscape, street scene, cathedral, etc. I also don't mind a little distortion...and even want a little as it can create some neat photos (I think so anyway!). I have the 18-200 mm kit lens that has an angle of view of about 75 degrees....where this one opens up to 102 degrees. Those of you who have shot with something similar, would this lens be worth the money? Would I be disappointed in the lens and wish I had bought something else? I've had a hard time finding reviews for this lens, so any input would be GREATLY appreciated. If I get it, I'll do so by the end of the week, so please hurry with the insight! *Finally found the reviews here: http://www.dyxum.com/reviews/lenses/reviews.asp?IDLens=225...but would still like y'all's input.
