When I originally purchased my first digital SLR equipment back in the spring of 08' money was a keen issue, and so to stretch funds, instead of buying a Nikon wide to medium tele zoom, I purchased a Sigma 18-50mm f2.8 macro. An amazingly versatile lens, it was useful in capturing a huge variety of shots, if they were from medium distances in, it sadly turned out. From medium distances out it was horribly soft, and after butchering more nice scenic shots than I care to remember, it got so bad I that I stopped taking scenic shots that required use of this lens.
So I bid my time financially and purchased Nikon's 16-85mm zoom to replace it with the help of my 09' tax refund. Today was my first free day off to try it out and I was happy to discover that with this great street lens in my arsenal, scenic shots were once again on the menu.
