Sigma 10-20mm F4-5.6 EX DC HSM

Review Date: Jan 4, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $450.00 | Rating: 9 

Pros: Wide Angle, Sturdy Build, Padded Bag, Petal Hood, Nice Finish, Low CA, Fast quiet focus (HSM)
1.6 Digital Only, cannot use built in flash at shorter than about 17mm

Exactly the wide angle I was looking for. Of course there is some distortion. It is a wide angle afterall! This lens has much less distortion than you might think especially at 10mm. I am very happy with it as I EXPECT distortion. There is no such thing as a lens this wide without distortion so the distortion is not a negative aspect of this lens but a plus when used correctly.

What you do get is a nice bright clear lens with a top notch build and a super wide angle of coverage. Very minimal CA and I have no issues to note in regard to low light AF.
