In a previous post, I mentioned that I wanted to share something with you regarding my camera. Well, today is the great unveiling. While it may not be all too exciting over there on your end, it’s kind of exciting here.
Okay, so here goes – I finally broke down and purchased a wide angle lens. To be exact, it’s the “Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6 EX DC HSM Lens for Canon Digital SLR Cameras.” That’s Amazon’s title.
While I’m not going to go over all the features and intricacies of what this lens has to offer, I will say this – the price was right. Compared to other ultra wide-angle lenses I looked at (Tokina, Canon), I thought Sigma had the best deal. Things can get awfully pricey in the lens world and when shopping for these types of things, I must remember that all I need is something to get the job done.
I haven’t taken any photos of anything real, per se, but what I did do is something to give you a gist of how much this lens can capture. I took a few photos of some trees in the front lawn and one of my car. When you look at the one of the car, remember that I am only standing about eight feet away from it. Pretty cool.
