Review Date: May 6, 2004 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $680.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: price angle of view lack of distortion 12mm view on full frame focus and zoom rings wide and excellently damped no red blobs on fuji s2 pro
Cons:
a bit chunky no filters for the front weird flare when shot into the sun.

I had my nikon 12-24mm stolen and had a chnace to compare the two. I went with the sigma and havent been disapointed. It is softer wide open than the nikkor but I shoot between f8-16 any way so i dont care. Images have a softer look than the nikon but on closer inspection have a bit more detail and respond better with a sharpenning tool. I love the focus grip on the sigma. No red blobs from inner reflections on the sensor when the sun is somewhere near the from. However some redgreen ghots appear occasionally if not careful. overall on par with the nikon except at 20-24mm where the nikon has the edge but hey i bought it for 12-18mm any way. A good buy.
