UWA suggestions - NOT fisheye
Mar 20, 2012

Been looking around at the only thing my gear doesn't cover... ultra wide angle. I'd like to get down into the 20mm (equiv) field of view or wider. The Pentax 10-17 doesn't interest me because while fish-eye lenses are "neato" for a short period their actual usage is very limited. I want a rectilinear very wide angle view for landscapes with as little distortion as possible. Yeah I know I can correct but the less correction, the better.

I've seen the Sigma 10-20 and the Tamron 10-24 online. The extra reach on the Tamron is nice but I really don't know how they compare. The Sigma is apparently another situation in which you can get a good sharp one or soft garbage.

Any other suggestions.

Life is NOT measured by the "moments that take your breath away" anymore than books are measured by the number of exclamation marks. The whole picture matters.
