Photos in the city

This past weekend had some pretty nice weather, ideal for being outside and doing some photography. So that's what I did. Erin's friend was in town so we hit a few tourist spots. I brought along my Tokina 12-24 and Sigma 24-70. The Sigma I hadn't used in quite some time so thought I'd dust it off a bit and refresh my memory on what it was capable of. I wasn't disappointed. Both lenses are capable of putting out some wonderfully sharp and colorful photos. Then again it was a bright, sunny day so it wasn't as if we were stretching the limits of the lenses or anything. Good pics nonetheless.

Sigma 24-70 f/2.8 @ 70mm, f/8, 1/500s, ISO 100

The Sigma 24-70, not surprisingly, is a more versatile all-purpose walk-around lens. I like using the Tokina mainly at the wide end for mostly landscapes but you can get some awesome in-close people shots with it as well. I wish someone would come out with a fast 12-70 lens though cause having to swap lenses is always a pain in the butt and while I use the 24-70 more, there are times when I just adore the wide 12.
