I have the efs 15-85 so i would be paying for 4mm of wide angle and I wonder If the 8-16 would cover the gap more and get a place in the walk around shoulder sling/bag I use
Ive read good reviews on the 11-16 and still have it in the back of my mind due to its performance v price.
the canon 10-22 has a great reputation from the reviews also and from what I have read has minimal distortion to boot.
Its hard to pick through the reveiws with my newbie limited experience and understanding of the terminology along with hands on experience but I think I am leaning towards the sigma 8-16 for its ultra wide (to me) and its overlap with the 15-85, then all I need to do is build a kitchen for someone as a swap for a ......100 - 400 IS USM then along with my pre (IS/USM) 100mm macro I think I will have my full bag of tricks ( or enough to keep a chiropractor in business anyhow).
Im lacking any knowledge on the time lapse stuff yet but I was trying some of the maths out and a shot every 30 seconds (1 min may be ample or 90 seconds) works out to 120 shots per hour and 960 frames per 8 hour day,, that Kitchen shown took 17 hours to build from the time I walked in and saw all the boxes so that would give me 2040 frames
2040 frames at 24/frames per second would give a clip of 85 seconds
so if shot at 1 frame/min that would be 42.5 seconds
Is this right or am I missing something ?
I want to stand as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all the kinds of things you can't see from the center.
