I bought the 8-16,mm lens recently for landscape and architecture. One of the reasons I wanted it for architecture is that it is so wide that after correction you still have quite a bit with which to work... or so went the theory. I did correct the second shot and the theory really was borne out. The colors on this lens are quite sumptuous and quite different from many of the other Sigmas I've owned. I shot the following precisely because they are familiar already to me and I could compare fov as well as results I have obtained previously.

10mm F/9.0, 1/30th @ISO 3200, hand held.



8mm F/9.0, 1/4th @ISO 3200, hand held. Perspective corrected and scaled in PTLens.




... Let's just say I am ... hooked.

woof!

UWA addiction...this lens has just driven me "wide" mad. (i'm catching myself fantazizing about other wide angles...gotta stop or i'll get a very specific buying addiction).

Some more shots made yesterday at the countryside.

Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, Yale University. This building contains the rare books and literary manuscripts of Yale University. One of the largest buildings in the world devoted entirely to rare books and manuscripts, the library has room in the central tower for 180,000 volumes and in the underground book stacks for over 600,000 volumes; it now contains about 500,000 volumes and several million manuscripts.

The building is constructed of Vermont marble and granite, bronze and glass, was designed by Gordon Bunshaft, of the firm of Skidmore, Owings and Merrill. Work began on the building in 1960 and was completed in 1963.

The white, gray-veined marble panes of the exterior are one and one-quarter inches thick and are framed by shaped light gray Vermont Woodbury granite. These marble panels allow light to enter the interior of the building, but filter it such that rare materials can be displayed without damage.

The building is literally up on four of these granite footings , and each is carved from single blocks of the same granite that makes up the floor of the square. The two walls meet at the corner from which this was taken at a 90 degree angle.

Some straightening, PP, but overall, FOV as shot @ 8mm.

woof!

Is this HDR? I know I can't qualify to post in this thread as I don't own an 8-16, but I'm drawn to these images!
