Sigma 10-20mm F4-5.6 EX DC HSM

111_small
Review Date: Jan 3, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $319.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Sturdy build, EX finish, HSM, rapid AF, none to negligible CA at all apertures and lengths
Cons:
Slightly pricey thin CPL needed to prevent vignetting

I had been waiting for the Sigma 10-20 to be released since I did not like the plasticky feel of the Canon 10-22. I nearly got one at B&H, but they had sold out a mere 15 minutes before I arrived. As it turns out, another store down the street had one. Just one. I fell in love with this lens as soon as I put it on my 20D. Sharp, sharp pictures, great contrast and saturation, and no front/back focusing. The HSM works perfectly - quiet and fast - and as with the CA, there is little to no distortion. Sigma has really come through with a superb WA for 1.6x DSLRs!
