Default Canon 10D question

What are your opinions regarding landscape pics taken with the 10D? Is there a lens best suited for landscape shots? Also, any
"tips" regarding digital landscape photography?

I use the Sigma EX 17-35mm f/2.8-4 for landscape because this lens has ultrasonic AF and a front filter thread; Otherwise Sigma also makes the remarkable 15-30mm f/3.5 which is very popular (it sounds like they ship this lens with a front filter adapter now).
Anyway here some pictures with the Sigma EX 17-35mm:

What do you mean by a "front filter adapter"? I assume you mean that it doesn't have threads at the end like many lenses, so you have to add something to get them? Does that risk Vignetting?

This Sigma 15-30mm EX is an excellent lens (in both Nikon & Canon mounts). It was primary designed fo rear filter only since it's in the fisheye range, but they have now included a front mounting ring for non full-frame dSLRs like us, much more convenient I guess:

With a full-frame it would have vignetted for sure from the front; However, we all have this 1.5-1.6x which cropped down its coverage! I would have bought this lens no question asked if I had a D100, but with the 10D I prefer the ultrasonic... and the extra f/2.8 of the 17-35mm EX for indoor available light. People who might move on to full-frame in the future would have decided differently...

I use the 17-40L F4 from Canon. I really like it, makes great pictures. Take a look at my utah gallery for some examples. Of course, on a 10D this is still only effectivel a 28-64mm lens, thus not that wide.
