I would had it that way if only the DA* zoom doesnt make me feel nervous.
Gotta admit, I am nervous about the SDMs, but it's hard to pass up the glass.

8-16mm photos

These are of the roof of the hot room at Tacoma's Museum of Glass. Both were handheld at ISO 400. The first is at 16mm, 1/3 sec at f5.6. The second is at 8mm, 1/4 sec at f5.6

Is there any Post-Production with these pictures because if not, these pictures seem REALLY sharp.

I might have to take out the plastic. :]

regardless if these are post-processed or not, they really are sharp. just by looking at the images from the Sigma 10-20 (processed or simple jpegs), the 8-16 is a notch higher.

Yes, but it is helpful to know.

The price tag is somewhat high. 7 Bills. Not as much as some other lens out there, so I suppose it's average..?

This lens is going to be a lot of fun. This is the west end of the Washington State History Museum. Lens at 8mm, 1/125sec at f8, ISO100.

Thanks, MP. It is a fine lens - very sharp and sooo wide. I notice that you avoided flare in this image, which is the one problem I've noticed when the sun or bright lights are in or near the frame.

I'd be interested in comparison images from your Sigma and your DA*16-50 at 16mm, should you be so inclined.

Comparison images are something I might be able to do. What in particular are you interested in. Both at 16mm/f8 or something similar?

I've actually had no flare issues with the 8-16mm. Even directly at the sun (As you can see, there's only the tiniest bit of flare):
