^^ Ah ... forgot about that. Yeah, just double check.

In my years of experience, I have found the Sigma Glass much more clear than the Tokina Glass. It's hard to tell between the 2 ... but when you crop in 100% and stare at a bokeh section of the photos you take ... you can start to see the difference.

Blades on a Sigma are better oiled than a Tokina in my experience as well. I have had Tokina lenses lock up on me and some of my buddies. ... We took plenty of photos one year for an event. Also the flare from lamps look better on the Sigma glass than on the Tokina glass ... in my opinion.

Kool.

I emailed Adorama and asked them if they could match Abe's of Maine's price on that. If they can't I guess I'll be buying it through Abe's. I've never bought from them before...

Omaha's Bob Kerrey Pedestrian bridge in Omaha taken as the Missouri River was reaching flood stage. The colors are accurate to how it was that night.

Haha. I uploaded it in like 2 seconds as I was running out the door. I don't think anyone will steal this one. It should have been shot in landscape orientation. Also would have been absolutely fantastic in HDR, but I didn't bring my tripod. :(

no i like the portrait orientation you can see the bridge, you can see the sun set, I really like it. I bet the sky gets really dramatic to the left and right of the bridge, that would be cool to see, but all in all, very nice.

Actually the sky was kinda wimpy that night. Just a smattering of clouds like that. The sky was fantastic here tonight! Big huge thunderhead, but no rain. Really weird. I was going to a movie though so no pics.

I like the first one, but it looks like that second one was taken out in the open at midday.
