http://www.plemix.com/acc-sigma-10%2...0DC%20HSM-lens

they are the only 2 in my budget well, one i more into i lol (the cheaper one).
i am looking for a wide angle, well basically to use instead of my stock kit lens pretty much all the time. i got my 70-300 for any other longdistance and sport projects.

ps: i also found this one....

Re: need some help with 2 sigma

I have the slower Sigma and I love it. I didn't even realize they made the faster one!

Re: need some help with 2 sigma

well it's a 4-5.6 so I think you can figure that out Yeah the faster one would be a lot better. I use mine on a tripod a lot, but if there is a lot of light then it's fine hand-held too.

Re: need some help with 2 sigma

3.5 is only 1/3 stop faster...

if you are shooting action you'll want a fast shutter speed anyways.....

lets say 1/250....1/3 stop from that is like 1/200

if you're shooting indoor action you're screwed either way.

and with a wide angle lens you're going to want to be closer to action, and when you're closer to the action things move a lot faster, so 1/250 might not even be fast enough.

Re: need some help with 2 sigma

Yeah I wouldn't try to use that lens to shoot anything moving. Mostly I use it for still shots.

Re: need some help with 2 sigma

the only action it should see are the MMA cage fighting from my club when we have a tourney!
what about portraits? i was reading a mag a mag at the dentist, and they were using wide angles... but i didn't have time to finish it.
( i do have an external flash, sigma too)

Re: need some help with 2 sigma

imho, that lens is both too slow and too wide for even ringside MMA.

wide angle portraits are generally unflattering. It would all denpend on the style of portrait shooting you are pursuing.

Re: need some help with 2 sigma

i was talking with Trev... he is using a promaster 12-24 mm f4 ...
what about that... would it be versatile enough for portraits and landscape?
