Not as happy with these as I could be but in my defence i'd only had the 40d less than 24 hours, not as forgiving as my 400d when you get the settings wrong! http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v636/portugeeza77/show1.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v636/portugeeza77/show091.jpg http://img.photo...

Sigma 10-20mm?

Anyone used one of these for static aircraft? Does the image distort much? Thinking of buying one as its alot cheaper than the Canon 10-22mm :shock:
