Sigma 10-20mm F4-5.6 EX DC HSM

111_small
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)
Cons:
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.
