    I have a friend that's asked me about this lens and I honestly can't give him an opinion 'cause I've not owned one nor heard much about it (been out of the loop for a while)
    What's the general opinion of it please? good, ok, fine, might fine?

    Good lens; there are some third party options (Tokina 12-24, Sigma 10-20) that are not quite as good (still pretty good) at about half of the price.
     
  3. Hi Jerrell, I love this lens and would highly recommend it. Below are some sample shots with it.

    WOW! Love #4! Now that's what I'm talking about! :cool: 

    I was trying to capture a sunset a week or two ago and have a great view off of our deck, but even my 18-55 backed all the way out at 18mm just couldn't capture everything I needed it to.

    I JUST got this lens from a fellow Cafe member and after seeing your pictures, I am even more excited about using it! Thanks for sharing the possibilities!

  9. I can't recommend the Nikon version - as I don't own it. (I've shot with one once, and I was convinced.) However, I can definitely recommend the focal length.
