Duncan how long were you going to wait before upgrading. The 1.3x crop camera may not be a long term proposition. It may well go full frame again.

I am often (read usually) withing a couple of ft of the action (especially in skate parks) so need some serious wide angle to actually see what's going on.

Example 1 - Example 2 - Example 3 - Example 4

I have been interested in obtaining a wide angle zoom to use with a D70s/D200. I have been reading reports on the sigma 10-20 and 12-24. I have been a bit concerned by some user comments regarding image softness, It may be worth looking into this before going ahead and spending hard earnt money!

Hope this may be of some help.

It's not just skateboarding - I do a bit of mountain biking and a lot of BMX (ish) stuff, where wide angle is really all I use. I guess when people think "sports", they think of footballers 50m away or something? But that's only half of it.
