Yet another new lens

Since I've decided to start building my photographic empire, I've decided that I have to start getting some better equipment to go along with it.  For the longest time I've felt pretty comfortable that the 18-55mm lens that came with my Canon was enough for wide angle shots.  That was until I used it for a shot back in December where I found that 18mm is not wide angle enough.  So enter my new Sigma 10-20mm.  Not the fastest lens out there, but seems like a pretty sturdy lens.  What amazes me is just how wide angle it can get.  
Here's an example of my 18-55mm shot at 18mm.
Picture taken within a foot of the camera.  Pretty decent coverage close up. Now, let's see how it looks at approximately the same distance and at 10mm on the Sigma lens.
There is a whole lot more there.  But I also am noticing that the image, shot at the same ISO setting, has a lot more noise in it.  When I get some time this week, I'll take it for a walk after work and see what I get out in the world with natural lighting. 
But for now, I have to get back to some website building.
