Comments about Sigma Sigma 20mm f/1.8 EX Aspherical DG DF RF AutoFocus Super Wide Angle Lens with Hood for Pentax AF Cameras:

I got this because I needed a fast, wide-angle for a series of group pictures and indoor event pictures where I didn't want to have to rely on a flash. This has not disappointed. I've been able to use this for gymnastics action shots in a gymn that has lousy light, too. The size is a bit of an issue -- I don't have a pocket big enough for it on a summertime shirt and the filter is a monster -- but it's a small deficit when considering all the positives.

Comments about Sigma Sigma 20mm f/1.8 EX Aspherical DG DF RF AutoFocus Super Wide Angle Lens with Hood for Pentax AF Cameras:

When I got my Pentax K-10-D, once again my next objective was to buy a bright wide angle lens (Zooms Can't Cut It In Low Light). When I step into a Big Old Granite Building I come out with better shots than if I had put a flash on my camera and settled for the coverage it got.
This lens is great on my D.S.L.R. and even better on my 35mm.S.L.R. and it takes the same Sigma polarizing filter as the 100mm to 300mm Lens and 24mm to 70mm Lens I planed on buying after it.

Comments about Sigma Sigma 20mm f/1.8 EX Aspherical DG DF RF AutoFocus Super Wide Angle Lens with Hood for Pentax AF Cameras:

Indoor shots without flash is now a reality with this lens, especially with digital cameras, where you can tweak the white balance. On a digital, you have a respectable 30mm equivalent wide lens at F/1.8. On a film camera you have a breathtaking 20mm. It will also focus to a 1:4 macro ratio, giving you an amazing perspective (and depth of field) that you can't get with a normal lens. The only drawback I have found is that the lens is not small (the size of many zooms, but it doesn't "stretch-out" like most zooms obnoxiously do) and the filter size is an expensive 82mm. But you don't get F/1.8 without that kind of size. Don't try the lens. You'll never go back to the dark world of slow zooms again. . .
