    So I was wondering if anyone here could help me out pick up a lens between the sigma 10-20mm and the sony 11-18mm. I want a wide angle lens that is sharp. I don't care if it's heavy or compact. As long as I get a good result. :)

    Also I was looking into Sony's 16mm F2.8 Fisheye

    Any ideas, reviews or tests.

    Any help on picking one would help :)

    :D

    EDIT: I have a sony a100

    CameraLabs has a review on the 11-18.

    Sadly, it's not a full frame lens but I hope the new full frame can overcome that.

    seems like everywhere I go sigma gets good feedback.

    It's super cheap on amazon right now, but only in the states :(

    I had the sigma, pretty good lens. Buy on line from www.bhphotovideo.com and have it shipped to you. Even with the exchange rate it will still work out cheaper!

    B&H is one of the best websites around. There's a link at the top of the page for it. And HSM stands for hyper sonic motor. Which makes auto focusing faster. Definitely go with that model if you can.
