As Havoc suggested, you can set up a "saved search" on ebay and tell it to email you new listings every day within those parameters. I get emails every morning for a number of items I've been watching for.

I am in Disney right now about to start day 2. It's my first trip with the UWA and its really handy. By far the most use since I have owned it. That lens shared time with my 17-50.

nbaresejr I can't wait to see some of the pictures you take with it. Do you think you can take some comparison shots or have time to take one from the Train platform looking down Main St. USA. I hope you can post some before you leave.

I should be able to post a few comparison shots from Main Street. I will be home on Sunday. Try to get something up that afternoon for you. I am bringing the tripod to the park tonight.

Some day I'll get a UWA lens -- I absolutely love some UWA shots. But IMO, UWA shots can be the hardest when it comes to composition. In a skilled hand, they can be amazing. But I've seen lots of horrible UWA shots, where the frame is largely filled with extraneous material and the interesting stuff becomes miniature.
I really look forward to your use of it nbaresejr.... If there is 1 location that really opens up the use of a UWA, it's Disney World.

I am definitely no expert in any area but I'm giving it my best shot. I agree with what was said about the UWA. It's very hard to get the composition right as I'm finding out.

I just got back to the hotel room. If you click the link to my Flickr you will see 1 photo from tonight. It's a pic I took with my cell of the camera LCD screen. Sorry for the poor quality of the cell pic. Got some good night shots with the tripod I think. It's hard to tell without a computer.

It looks to be a real good shot, did you use the Sigma 10-20 f/2.8 for this shot?

Yes. I was about 5 fetes or so away from the wall. I think that was a 12 sec exposure. I took 3 shots at different exposures headed to the animal kingdom today and then some night shooting at Hollywood studios.
