Field Test Sigma 10-20 with Pentax K10D

Sigma Zoom Super Wide Angle 10-20mm f/4-5.6 EX DC J Autofocus Lens

I wanted a lens so I could get wider photos. I decided to test it indoors and out doors.

What it will be used for.

1. Background photos for my wildlife inserts

2. Small rooms for real estate web sites

3. By cropping I can get a panorama look.


Our Dinning & Kitchen is a very narrow. 8 1/2 feet by 32 feet



A hotel room. 8 1/2 feet by 15 feet





My outside test is right after a rain storm.





On my way home I stopped at one of the ranch ponds I go to.

This is lens takes some fantastic shots. Thanks for the field test sharing. The bigma and this 10-20mm are proven to be tops. Also, I appreciate your maintaining the exif info so one can view the settings you had for each shot. Very helpful.

Mahalo,

Tom

A perfect lens for the job, but there is more to a good picture than the equipment - well done.

I prefer the uncropped photo to the panorama, as I like the cloud formations, but the cropping illustrates the point.

Did you use a polarizer on the last one, or is that PP? or both? Very striking.

Hi Tom, I think once I get use to it I am going to really like it. For my background photos it does give me a lot more room for the insert of the close up. Thanks for looking and for commenting.

Look great Roger. Could you post a pic of this lens mounted on the K10D?

Roger,

These are great pics, especially the outdoor ones. I secomd Penolta's comment that it takes more than good equipment. The picture of the ranch pond is top rate! If I'm not being too nosy, what did you pay for that lens?

We loaned out other camera a FZ30 to a friend of ours for a couple of days while he is waiting for his to get back from repair. As soon as it is available I will take the photo for you. Thanks for looking and for the kind comment.
