This may help in downloading from Flickr to this Forum :

: click on your selected photo in Flickr

: Right click on the photo

A dropdown appears on the photo.
Select the size of photo ( I prefer large)

: Right click on the new sized photo and select "View Image Information"

: The URL will come up highlighted in a list of information.

: Right click on this highlighted URL. Copy the URL.

: Now go to your destination thread in Forums and click on the little icon that shows a snow capped mountain. (under the right arrow icon)

: Paste the copied URL in the dropdown Box and then click "OK"

This should work no problem.

Isn't this thread redundant with the Sigma 10-20mm lens club thread?

This may help in downloading from Flickr to this Forum :
The procedure you posted is against Flickr rules.

Flickr rules stipulate that you must link back to the photo page of the image on Flickr. Luckily there is an easy way to achieve this:
  1. Go to an image page on Flickr.
  2. Click on the small triangle pointing down next to the email / facebook / twitter icons (the tooltip says "More ways to share")
  3. Select the size you need.
  4. For this forum choose "BBCode".
  5. Copy the text from the text box and paste it into a forum post.
  6. To the best of my knowledge you may omit the second link that states the credit.
Bramela, if you have spread your misinformation elsewhere, I suggest that you follow up your posts and correct them.

FYI: From the Flickr community guidelines:
Flickr makes it possible to post content hosted on Flickr to other web sites. However, pages on other web sites that display content hosted on flickr.com must provide a link from each photo or video back to its page on Flickr.
Emphasis is mine.

Ahhh...so BBCode was the trick. Thanks. I originally put in the HTML.

That works, but a much easier way is to:

- go to the photo's page, and above the top left of the photo should be Actions, and then another panel with an envelope, the twitter icon, facebook icon, and an arrow
- click on the arrow. A dropdown box should appear
- click "Grab the HTML/BBCode"
- select the size you want
- make sure the "BBCode" button is checked
- then just copy and paste all the code here into the forum

And you contravene the flickr community guidelines this way either.

I personally don't think so. In fact, I think that this new lens sample photo archive subforum should be the one rendering all those previous miscellaneous and numerous "lens club" threads redundant instead.

Several things I'll say for this lens before I go home and post some pictures.

Stunning sharpness. Amazing blue skies. Pretty small.

If only it had 8 or 9 blades for the aperture.

This forum is for samples, rather than discussion but I find your wish for 8 or 9 blades to be something that you normally ask for when seeking nice bokeh.
You aren't using an ultrawide (which has pretty great DOF no matter what aperture) for bokeh, especially one that has a maximum aperture of f4-5.6.

I agree that it's not for discussions, we can discuss in PMs after. My reference to the 8 or 9 blades is more specifically to the "star" effect on small aperture shots at night. For reference, look at the DA15. I apologize if my posts here are out of line in a samples thread.
