The problem with the 10mm on a crop camera. It's HARD to ensure you always
have enough overlap, especially multirow in pressure situations.
That is, if you are wanting to shoot spheres, otherwise, you're good.
However, for spheres on a crop, you'd really be better off with the sigma
3.5 for the hours and anxiety saved shooting and stitching.
Or the Nikon 10.5 if you are really trying to get the quality edge.
I wouldn't think twice about it. The difficulty factor from the sigma 8 to
sigma 10-20 is like 4 or 5 times in stitching, retouching, and its exposure
On the OTHER hand, a really nice sphere done from 10mm rectilinear would be
extremely sharp and make an excellent print. But I'd still take an 8mm and
have the option.
Otherwise, you'll get some major post processing fatigue, and it'll be 8
months before you finish everything. ;)

Peter: thank you for that dummy - good idea to try out these things that
Keith: i did not really assume that i could fix that hole with Photoshop ;-)
Tonight i tried the described combo (Sigma 10-20 + S5pro) on my SPH303 and
hole really IS big. But for landscapes it would work rather good. Mostly
there is nothing i
would miss (grass, concrete, etc.). But i am unsure if i would not be better
of with the 8mm
all in all. Fewer shots and everything covered with lots of overlap... i am
going to Vietnam for
17 days and have to carry everything. That is how i came to think about
that...but i think i
will sleep over it again.
