Oh Sigma 8-16, I think I am in love!

6 months ago I bought my first DSLR. It's a Pentax K-x kit w/18-55 and 55-300 lenses. I have taken lots of photos since and decided I wanted a fisheye and/or a ultra wide angle lens. At first I was in sticker shock seeing some of the prices that lenses go for. After months of research, I finally pulled the trigger today and bought the Pentax 10-17 from another member here on the forums. The lens is in the mail as we speak and I already want another?!? I think I just fell in love with the Sigma 8-16. The price is much higher than I want to spend, at least for now. I guess I will play with my fisheye for a while until I can get up the courage to lay out that kind of dough for a lens.

LBA reminds me of an old reef keeping addiction I had years back

I like fish-eye's myself, I use a Samyang 8mm and absolutely love it, love it so much I am also going to purchase the 14mm, currently my white K-X is married to the 8mm FE, they are very rarely apart.

I have two monster events I will be shooting this weekend and expect to roughly add about 2000 more shutter actuations to the white K-X just shooting with the FE (and probably another 2000+ across the other 3 cameras that will be with me)...
