Sigma 10-20mm F4-5.6 EX DC HSM

111_small
Review Date: Jan 11, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: build, image quality, hsm (fast, quiet focusing)
Cons:
can't remove lens cap with hood on; somewhat front-heavy on a 350D

10-20mm is a very fun length on a crop body. Focus speed is very fast, quiet, no hunting. Build is excellent, very solid. Reversible hood & pouch are useful extras.

Image quality seems basically excellent, pretty sharp with good colours.

Only real problem is that you can't really get the lens cap on & off with the hood on. I got a center-pinch cap, but it seemed to be touching the front element (barely). Problem finally solved by putting a UV filter on the front, then the center-pinch cap goes on without any danger of touching the filter (because it's flat) or the front element.
