    Hi Tom, what part of the picture is it a crop of? extremely nice!
     
  3. Well with the wide angle, it was shot as a vertical, so I cut equal amounts off the top and bottom, do not remember taking anything off the sides, so I think what we are looking at is truly 50% of full frame. I can post the whole pic if it is of that much interest?

    its ok tom, just wanted to find out if it was one of those 100% crops from the borders etc. love the colour, any post processing done?
     

  5. Yes I usually do a little with shadow and highlights
     
  6. I found it sharp too. But I'm crazy about Wide Angle lens after trying out 10-22mm. So I got Sigma 10-20.
     
  7. That looks to be a very sharp lens. It's on my wish list for sure!

    Yep, it a great lens. Beside the "normal" use of this lens, I set it at 5.6 with auto ISO and it makes my cameras the true "P/S" camera. With the AFS and the incredible DOF, on my D200 I often just shoot from the chest and crop later.

    It is expensive, but it is a great lens. At those focal lengths you can shoot down to 1/18 and still get sharp images.

    Ed, a 2.8 would be great but at cost in size, weight, and price? I don't think it would fit my budget:)
     
  9. I have this lens, but i haven't used it as much as i should. Looking at the shots from this site makes me want to get it out more often.

    Hi Jeff

    Thank you for that (5,6+auto-iso), I think I will try that - just got it, but I was not impressed by its sharpness, so I send it to repair/callibrating, and I got it back monday.
