OK - so you know by now that I'm both a Nikon shooter and that I don't use an 'expensive' lens by any stretch of the imagination. It's more of a philosophical argument than anything - don't ask. Anyways, I gave some care and attention to the latest Sigma 10-20mm last week (which can be used on Nikon or Canon) so I figured I'd spend some time on the top-of-the-line lens as well.
Here's a blurb from StuckinCustoms:
This is the best wide angle lens I have ever used. Whenever I am standing with a fellow photographer that has a Nikon DSLR, I immediately force them to remove whatever lens they happen to have on and put this one on so they can try it out. They are amazed too.
No, this article is by no means a 'review', and the author admits that upfront. It's gives you a sense of what the lens is capable of (but we all know by know, it's really the photographer) and I think those sample images are better than you'll ever see in a lens review. Give it a look.

It's no secret - I'm a fan of the Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6 lens. Yes - it's cheap. No - it's not perfect. But guess what - it's an amazing lens for the price and it can do 99% of what I need it to do with ease.
Digital Photography School just posted a review of the lens. Their conclusion…:
This lens is a keeper. Except for the fact that Sigma wants theirs back and I can’t keep it. I’m going to sorely miss this lens on my next trip and will likely purchase one before the month is out. The ability to go this wide on an APS-C (1.6-Canon/1.5-Nikon crop factor) lens opens up a whole different realm of looking at the world. Good work, Sigma.

The forum page is now up and running. Like I said in the inaugural post - it's nothing fancy, but it works. Anyone can post, no user accounts are necessary, just be responsible please.
Photography for Real Estate posted some good tips on MLS upload specifications. Here's a clip:
"One of the challenges of real estate photography is to prepare photos for upload to the local MLS in such a way that the uploaded photos look their best. A related consideration is that you’ll want the photos to also look great on your client’s broker site as well."
