    Would the nikon 10.5 be to wide for yard landscape shots? My shots would
    include the house.

    Depends -- I use the 10.5mm for QTVR (quicktime virtual reality) where you take 360 degree x 180 degree panoramas where the distortion disappears. The 10.5mm is extremely wide and distorted, you might be better off with something rectilinear?
     
  3. It's more of a matter of linearity than it is of wideness. The 10.5 is a fisheye lens, designed to produce creative distortion. It can be de-fished, but that requires more editing steps. You might be better off with a rectilinear lens, like a Tokina or Nikon 12-24mm lens. It would be my choice for architectural renderings.

    Thanks alot Ewout and Uncle Frank,

    I wasn't sure if this lens would be a good choice, I'll look at the 12-24 instead.
     
  5. check out the Sigma 10 20 page on this site. I was going to drop 979.00 on a Nikon 12-24 and then seeing the results of that Sig 10-20 (WOW)...
    I am a brand loyal person but for the money (550.00 for this lense) and results this might be a great addition to your set up...
