Nikon D90 + Sigma 10-20mm F4-5.6 EX DC HSM Lens…

by on Mar.08, 2010, under Life, Photography

I was fortunate to be able to borrow a colleagues Sigma 10-20mm F4-5.6 EX DC HSM Lens for an hour or two so that I could get a feel for what an Ultra-Wide lens would be like on my Nikon D90.

I went to Hyde Park (very close to my work in the city) during lunch and took a few shots.

This is inside the Anzac War Memorial looking up towards the ceiling at maximum wide (10mm).

1/160 sec at f/4, ISO 200, 15mm equiv

Outside the memorial I took a sequence of approximately 50% overlapped shots (10 of them) with the camera vertically oriented so that I could stitch them together into a 360 degree panorama. I’ve locked the Aperture at f/11. Ideally I would have used a tripod (which I didn’t have at the time) so I’ve done this handheld – the result however is pretty good considering.

f/11, ISO 360, 15mm equiv

    It sas in the description that the sigma 10-20mm lens is only for APS-c sensors. Is the nikon d90’s cmos sensor equivelent to a aps-c sensor or am i not getting this?
    Thanks for a great review

    Yes the Nikon D90 (in fact all of the Nikon DX cameras – e.g. DX0 (40/50/60/70/80/90), DX000 (3000/3100/5000/5100/7000), D300 have approx APS-C sensors (a 1.5x crop)). Similarly Sony and Pentax crop cameras have a 1.5x crop and Canon crop cameras have a 1.6x crop.
