Thanx digifotojo. The Sigma 10-20 is the best lens I have had to shoot straight in to light, wery good flare control.

I just traded in a Sigma 8mm circular fisheye lens for the Sigma 10-20mm and am looking forward to using it in future challenges. I really like the results you got with the lens in this image, it's quite extraordinary.

Cool. I want one! Thanks for posting the link.
Maybe I should settle for a John Deere with a front end loader, though, seeing as we don't get that much snow here. ;)
