"It's Miley!"

well since the stupid snow won't go away and the sun is evidently NEVER coming out, i guess i'll take pics inside with one of my NEW lenses, a

 

Sigma 24mm F1.8 EX DG ASPHERICAL MACRO

 

its a wide angle, and its a macro!!!!!!!!! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

i never really considered buying anything but nikkor, but a friend of mine that helped me with a wedding recently has a couple sigmas and i thought they did great! i read reviews until my eyeballs fell out, and so far i am really quite happy with them! and that's what counts! that, and the fact that they are a fraction of the cost of nikon lenses!

plus, i finally have a lens that allows me to take a photo of my dog since any time i try she gets approximately 4.2 centimeters from my face.

 

this is basically SOOC because i couldn't decide how to edit it, and then just decided not to so you all can see the 24 1.8 in all its glory. =)

    Fabulous shot! I'll have to look into the lens myself. I, too, have been quite a snob about only purchasing Nikkor lenses, but recently rented a 16mm Fish Eye (Nikon) and fell in love ... however, it is sadly way out of my price range right now. I'm intrigued with this Sigma - the fact that it's a macro too is awesome!

    thanks everyone! i seriously can't believe how CLOSE i can get to my subject... the fact that its a wide angle can also make the edges barrel out a little, but i kind of like it - its a neat effect i think. for something like wedding ring shots, i would probably crop them in a little (took some test shots of my own ring that i'm going to play around with) but for the most part i think it rocks! i also got the 70-200 2.8 and can't WAIT to get outside and play around with it. its actually done really well inside in low light.

    Cool! I can't afford the new Nikkor 24mm, so I'm looking at this as an alternative. How fast does it focus? If it hunts a lot, that might be a deal-breaker.
