Thanks for producing such an

Thanks for producing such an excellent resource! I've just spent a few hours perusing your site and I've already found it immensely helpful in comparing different lenses for my dSLR. The one thing that I think might actually improve this site would be if the comparison shots were displayed side-by-side. On this page, for example, you show all of the Sigma 8-16 shots before showing any of the Sigma 10-20 shots. I think it would be easier to compare these (or any two similar lenses) if the corresponding shots were arranges side-by-side.

Again, thanks for taking time to put together such a wealth of useful and detailed information!
