http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=451984 has a video and photos I made with the Sigma 8-16mm lens (the front element and overall lens survived countless bugs splatters, slight rain and moisture like a champ... even though it wasn't made for that).
thanks man. some excellent photos you got there.
did you notice much distortion in the ones you took with the sigma wide open?

Minimal distortion... no fisheyeing effects and straight lines stay straight... it's a rectilinear lens.

For example, that video was shot at 8mm, and no distortion correction was done on that.
