Sigma 10-20mm F4-5.6 EX DC HSM

111_small
Review Date: Jul 31, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Nice ultra wide lens! Super build, doesn't feel dinky like the 10-22mm from Canon. Oh have i mentioned yet it comes with a very nice padded case? Much better then the cheap crap Canon includes with most of their lenses.
Cons:
I live abroad so I had to pay a bit more then i would if i were in the USA, but considering I will be living here for good the extra price seemed fair when you take in to fact the warranty differences.

Excellent lens, does well in low light. I like the nice distorted effect when close up on subjects.

I was blown away when I saw the nice quality case Sigma had included for FREE!! This lens was already sweeter then the Canon costs wise but then they blew me away with the case. :P

Pros: I like it so much that i often recommend it, I also own 3 of these bags.
Cons:
Does not fit under airplane seats on smaller planes (at least this was the case on frontier)

I was recently on a business trip and had this bag on me, well on the connecting flight from Denver to LAX I had to put this in the overhead bin. Along came two gentlemen who shoved things on the side of the bag pushing it deep back in to the bin and shoving things in front and on top of the bag. I kept cringing thinking stuff was definitely broken inside, but to my surprise nothing budged and nothing broke. I definitely will continue to only buy lowepro gear because of this factor.

 
Canon EOS 20D

Pros: Nice, Fast, Great AF.
Cons:
None.

Having gotten this camera only 4 days ago, i am nothing but happy with it so far, it feels very solid unlike my previously owned 300D (which i returned after two days of owning).

Would be an Easy camera for new slr owners.

Great placement of controls.
