I was trying out Sigma 10-20mm. Great lens for landschapes wide wide wide:-).But this lens had some right side softness problem I took it back and I will have new one later this week. Here are some pictures from it.













Best regards.

Gisli, your name is like a certificate for such shots! While clicking on the post onealready gets curiousto seeyour next wonders from Iceland

Despite its flaw you mention, seems like you exploited the lens largely before returning itI believe your nextwide sigma of 10-20 will be a great companion for you. Btw, I wonder if you have also considered the tokina 12-24 f/4 which has great resolution scores even at wide wide..

Beautiful shots, Gisli!!! I can see what you mean, at least in the 1st shot. Best of luck with the replacement. If you can get any waterfall captures, I would appreciate it. I haven't had the opportunity to visit Iceland yet but a customer's husband was stationed there & he sent back gorgeous shots of the falls & icebergs that were breath-taking. Thanks for posting!

Thanx guys I t does not show much blur in these pictures they are sharpened 2 times and taken at the best aperture f/9 was best. When I took pictures at 20mm f/8 and larger the results was horrible . Yes bahadir I have thought about tokina 12-24 but there is no tokina dealer in Icelanddon't know why. They make great lenses.

Beautiful shots Gisli. Man, I love the landscape of your country. Too bad about the Sigma. I've had 3 now, and all were poor. They've lost me now. Try a Tamron. I have the 24-135m and it's a very nice all around lens. Don't know about their wide angle though....cheers....Don
