The Tammy 11-18mm is my fun lens for taking big angles and big angle close-ups.

I think the only stuff I have on-line taken with this lens is the first couple pages in this group shoot gallery

Technically a sound lens with great colors and sharpness but the range might be small for some. I had the Tammy SP 17-35mm already so it wasn't and issue.

Ed: Opps hit post instead of Preview.

Easy to work with little to no CA, I do find it hard to get it to bend (fisheye) stuff with the x1.6 crop factor on the 20D.

Is it the lens to buy? Well there is nothing wrong with it but it is not the Canon 10-22mm (the 17-35mm tammy is almost as good as the Canon 17-40L) and the range is small. A bud of mine needed the range and got himself the Tokina 12-24mm is is quite happy.

When I shoot it, I am usually on one end or the other and not much in the middle, and usually on the 18 end I will put the the 17-35mm on because it is faster and a tad bit sharper at that focal length.

It is a fun lens, I have it and I won't give it up.
