Be prepared to see the world differently. I think these "Ultra Wides" open up a new perspective on how you can create artistic images.

One tip, is always make sure you have a close object in the foreground as I think that is where these lenses really give a special perspective.

I hope you love your new lens.

If you want to see what this lens can do, have a gander at some of these..... he's a master of that lens. These shots prompted me to order the Tokina as well! :wink:

This lens will make you want to travel more and more. Enjoy, and come back to show us.

Wish you the best for your trip to Alaska, hoping to see some of your

Congrats Nancy, you'll love it. I just got one about a month ago, haven't really been able to put it to the test yet, but anxious to do so. I have a question, which filter would be appropriate given the wide angle of it? I purchased a Tiffen slim, but then the hood wouldn't fit back on nor the cap. I know have a normal Tiffen.

Thanks

Louis I will get back to you on that. I am at work right now. But, I was told you needed the slim kind for this lens and as far as a cap the B+W I got came with its own cap for it. I will try the filter and hood tonight.

Oh boy oh boy oh boy can I play too????????
heehee see ya Saturday
Oh yes you may. I need some subjects:biggrin:


congrats Nancy...i sure miss mine...;-(
Thanks:biggrin:.

Cheers all

Congrats :) I've used the Sigma 10-20 and I think this lens is definitely built tougher and a lot sharper wide open.

Thanks. Well, I am surely going to put it through its paces, especially in Alaska:biggrin:

Congrats, that is the lens on my wish list, just a hair ahead of the Sigma 10-20, sadly Tokina is not readily available in Canada (and I don't like using UPS cause of brokerage fees from the US).

I am looking forward to seeing your photos with this lens tho!
