Just got the Sigma 24 1.8. Closes focusing lens I've ever had (105mm focuses further, but is 105). This thing is CRAZY, sharp too. D2H coming tomorrow hopefully, using it on the 1DII.

Add me please! I love photography though its more of a hobby then a serious venture for me. Being an aquarium keeper the majority of my shots involve fish. I shoot with a Canon 5D Mark II. My backup is a Canon 300D Digital Rebel. Guess you could say this camera is my video camera too, 1080p video on this thing is crisp.

Some of my other equipment:
Canon 100mm f2.8 Macro
Canon 24-105mm f/4L IS
Canon 430ex II flash
Canon 580ex II flash
Canon ST-E2 transmitter for flashes

I'm a Canon fanboy.

Ummm, anyone got any tips for removing stuck filters? I didn't put it on that tight but it seems to have got stuck.

Hmm, haven't got any stuck myself but you could try putting it somewhere cold to let the materials shrink a bit to allow for better movement.

Then gently trying to move it both ways to loosen it up.

Good luck.

I'll give it a shot. It's only a skylight filter so it's not a big deal if i can't get it off immediately. Thanks.

pick up a set of filter wrenches....and keep it with your camera bag. i have had a magenta warming filter stuck on my lens for a day......

also dont pick up cheap filters with aluminum rings, they tend to stick compared to brass.

That's perfect, thanks so much. I've had a look online but all i can find is oil filter wrenches for cars, lol. I'll definitely keep an eye out though.

I was wrong. It's not a UV filter, it's a polarizing one.

try a search for 55mm filter wrench maybe you will have some local store that stocks them.

$3.99 for you. £7.50 plus postage for us. I hate this country's economy, lol.

I suppose they're incredibly useful. But every pound i spend is one pound less i have for a tripod.

You should be able to get it off without the wrenches. This is just another example of why you shouldn't use filters... especially cheap ones. (I only use one on my 80-200mm because the front element is a pain to clean because it is recessed and huge. I occasionally use a polarizing filter on my smaller lenses.)
