Took these with my drebel Sigma 24-70... I'm looking to get a wide angle, what does everyone think of the Sigma 15mm?

Nice to see some skate shots in here finally!

I like wide angle... great for skate & skiing, i just recently bought a little "adaptor" fisheye lens for my drebel... it's a super cheap peice of crap, but it takes some really really cool super wide shots... you might want to look into using fisheye, but if you want your work to be published, 99% of major publications will NOT accept any fisheye shots. i think they look cool personally, but i guess they dont look as good in print.

how do you like your sigma?? can you post a link to that lens you are using? i'd like to check it out. right now becuase of cash shortage im stuck with my kit lens for the rebel. I cant wait to get a nice wide angle.

I'm having the soft focus issue with my drebel/Sigma 24-70 ... I look back now and feelI should have gotten the kit lens to start with. the fisheye you seen in the older photos were taken with my Sony S85... using one of those cheap fisheye off Ebay. and as of right now took much sharper photos.

also if your a fan of skating, I run these sites
