Big TrainThe Wrong End of a Field Gun
A couple of test images from my Sigma 10–20mm lens. You have to get really close to things; for example, the front element of the lens was about a hand’s breadth away from the muzzle of the field gun.

The lens handles flare pretty well (the Super Wide Heliar 15mm sometimes went to pieces), and the D70 meters the wide lens accurately. I’m happy.

wide angles ‘r us

As I’ve managed to sell my Voigtländer Super Wide-Heliar 15mm-f/4.5 lens (thanks, Landrew!), I need something good and wide for digital. How nice that Henry’s are now listing the Sigma 10-20mm 4-5.6 EX DC HSM lens for $700.
