I've got a 40xs as well, it's a a great lens for not very much. I scored mine for under $100. I find it quite suitable for portraits as well as longer landscapes.
Maybe a consideration for the future?
Good idea!

I don't take a lot of 40XS images, but it's a great lens.

Yep... Close natural stuff is fine. But longer distances out to the horizon need to be 15mm or more and once I get into that range my 16-85 starts coming into play.

I DO like the 10-20 for closer work like your pic here, though.

I have the Tamron 10-24, and love it; but still am getting the 21 soon, and probably then maybe the 40xs!
