I really like the first shot. There's just something about the use effective of shallow DOF in shots like that that give them an other-worldly feel, almost like a scale model. Great stuff.

Chad, what camera did you use? I just get the same lens but I have to do adjustment with the focus to maximum +20, otherwise I get a front focusing with my D300.

Thanks Tim. I like the scale model look as well. Someday I'd like to try some sort of tilt shift type of picture.

Alex, I'm using the D300 as well. I just received this used copy earlier this week. Luckily I got a good copy. Yours sounds like it's way too far out of wack. I would send it off to Sigma for a calibration. Good luck.

I got a used one too, but before I tried 1 at the store I get the same problems, maybe my camera is not right, so for sure you are lucky, as you said you don't need to adjust the AF, if I send to sigma do I have to send with the body or just the lens? I don't really like to send for calibration, can I just use it with +20? the results is not too bad, sharp enough for me.

I'm picking mine up from a local guy tomorrow. I hope it's this good. Those are killer shots.

Thanks, Nute. It's only come off once since receiving it. That was only because I needed the fisheye in order to take a shot.

The more I see what this lens can do, the more I warm up to the idea of 3rd party lenses.
thanks for sharing
