    What ever rocks your boat, if the 35mm is wide enough, use it.

    I have the Sigma 10-20 f3.5 on my Canon 60D and it's a brilliant lens. I rarely use anything else for landscape work.Grin

    Andy,

    Not disagreeing about the Sigma 10-20mm lens. I loved it when I was using a crop-frame camera.

    But when you say "I rarely use anything else for landscape work", aren't you severely limiting yourself? Wide-angle lenses are by no means the only focal length that you should be thinking about when assessing a scene for a landscape photograph.

    On my FX camera, the focal lengths that I use most frequently for landscapes, in order of frequency, are:

    1. 24-70mm
    2. 70-200mm
    3. 16-35mm

    (In fact, I now tend to use a 20mm prime rather than the 16-35mm zoom if I do want a wider angle than the bottom end of my 24-70mm gives)

    There are uses for the 10-20mm in landscape work, especially if you want to artificially distort the perspective to accentuate near-foreground features. But do look at the more natural landscapes that you will get (on a crop sensor camera) from a lens in the "standard" 30-35mm range and also at the more dramatic landscapes you can capture with a medium telephoto.

    All I am saying is that if you "rarely use" anything else you might be missing many of the best landscape opportunities.

    Compared to a 200mm, yes Smile
