p.1 #1 · Canon 10-22 f3.5-4.5 vs Sigma 10-20 f3.5


Hopefully in the next few weeks I am going to start shooting interior and exterior real estate. I have been evaluating both the above lenses and am wondering if the extra cost of the Canon is worth it over Sigma f3.5 or Sigma f4-5.6. I am using Canon 60D. I also have 5D and the Tokina 16-28 f2.8 which I use for landscape, but want something much lighter. The Tokina is very heavy lens although I like this lense very much for landscape. Would like your thoughts on this lens choice.

Have you considered Tokina 11-16 and 12-24 too?

If you like Tokina 16-28, you are going to like the 11-16 on APC-S as well. It's 550g compared to 385g for Canon 10-22

I think the canon is worth it, the sigma is more prone to CA and flare, which are often a problem when there's a window in shot. I appreciate the lighter weight as well. My copy of the sigma was softer on one side, my canon is well aligned. I kept the Canon

When I wanted an ultrawide lens for my 7D I tested a bunch out, including the above mentioned Canon 10-22, Sigma 10-20 and Tokina 11-16. Ultimately it came down to the Canon and Tokina, and for me, it was no competition... the Tokina 11-16mm 2.8 was amazing.

I felt the IQ as quite a bit better, plus it's 2.8 throughout. Of course you're giving up some range, but for my purposes, I didn't like the fact that the Canon seemed to jump to 4.5 almost immediately after 10mm. However, if you're shooting real estate with a tripod, you're probably not needing a fast lens.

Finally, you mention weight as a factor... and the Tokina isn't a light lens... but for me that was a plus. It felt like a much more quality lens than even the Canon.

Thanks for the posts. The tokina 11-16 is a little short in range, otherwise I would have gone with it. I see the Canon has good flare resistance as compared to the sigma. Also seems like I have read quite a few posts regarding getting a good sigma copy.

I have a 10-22 that is really sharp and I quite enjoy the perspective on my 7D. However I primarily shoot with a 5Diii now, and have the 10-22 for sale. PM me if you're interested.

For architecture have you considered a TSE? I know that they are not as wide and not even close in cost, but they are suppose to be the bomb for architecture.

I tried the original Sigma 10-20/4-5.6. All three copies were fine on the side that was sharp. Maybe they've improved with the 10-20/3.5. Either way, the 10-22 is a better optic and not much more expensive.

Have you looked at the Sigma 8-16?

This lens is outstanding.

That's a good point, the 8-16 is pretty extraordinary. And you can never have too much width for interior shots.

Thanks for all your replies. Love to try the 17mm TSE but at more than 2k its just not affordable. Sigma 8-16 would be equivalent to their 12-24, so I will look into that and see if is a lens I can use.
