    Okay I really LOVE this type of photography, MY Canon 18-55mm has become my new best friend (well the 18mm side anyway)
    really love capturing the distortions but I want to "upgrade"

    So what lens would I need to create images like;

    Seascape @ Rancho Palos Verdes on Flickr - Photo Sharing!
    Gunwalloe Sea Mist on Flickr - Photo Sharing!

    I am guessing a 10-20mm Sigma would be the best choice for this sort of Photographing?

    Well if you check the exif data of one of the images the photographer did use one of those 10-20 something mm lenses.

    I have a Sigma 10-20 and it's a great landscape lens even though it's really soft wide open but I almost never go lower than f/8 when I shoot landscapes. I think the best equipment for those kind of photos would be a combination of a full frame camera and a sigma 12-24mm :D
