Us boys at Island Light have recently become the grinning owners of a
Sigma 10-20mm 1:4-5.6 EX (thanks Grandmother!)
It's always fun to have a new lens, especially if it's unlike any lens you've used before, which explains one of the reasons that some of us on Cortes Island have been having quite a bit of fun recently.
Being a rectilinear, this wide angle doesn't produce the boinghy boinghy your-nose-is-way-to-big fish eye effect, instead it just has a huge angle of view. It's view is so all-encompassing that you have to be careful not to end up with your feet and hands sticking in to the picture from behind the camera.
