Sigma 10-20mm F3.5 EX DC HSM. This super-wide angle lens has a maximum aperture of F3.5 throughout the entire zoom range. With its wide angle view from 102.4 degrees it can produce striking images with exaggerated perspective. The maximum aperture of F3.5 is ideal for indoor shooting and it enables photographers to emphasize the subject.

Two ELD (Extraordinary Low Dispersion) glass elements and a SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass element provide excellent correction of color aberration. Four aspherical lenses provide correction for distortion and allow compact and lightweight construction.

The Super Multi-Layer coating reduces flare and ghosting. High image quality is assured throughout the entire zoom range. The incorporation of HSM (Hyper-Sonic Motor) ensures a quiet and high-speed auto focus as well as full-time manual focusing capability.

This lens has a minimum focusing distance of 9.4 inches (24cm) throughout the entire zoom range and a maximum magnification ratio of 1:6.6.

The lens design incorporates an inner focusing system which eliminates front lens rotation, making the lens particularly suitable for using the Petal-type hood and polarizing filter. The Petal-type hood blocks extraneous light and reduces internal reflection.

Wide Angle Dream

This lens does what its supposed to do. Its wide, fast, and sharp. On the SD 14/15 its 17mm-34mm (still pretty wide) but nowhere near 10mm-20mm. The constant f/3.5 is nice but f/2.8 would have been better especially with the SD14/15 poor high ISO performance. Good all around lens. There is quite a bid of distortion at the edges when shot at the 10mm end especially if you are shooting landscapes with tall buildings, but good results are very possible with this lens.

Overall great pictures

By

This lens is very sharp in the center and corners at all apertures except 3.5 where the corners seam a little softer. The only real defect I see is somewhat high CA distortion in the corners but since PS and Lightroom 5 have such good tools to take care of this it is no longer a big problem. The extra wide view on the crop sensor cameras is great.

Wonderful in tight spots

By

Most of my photography and videos are done in conjunction with magazine stories and books, and because most are about outdoors or environmental subjects I often find myself in very tight quarters. The Sigma 10-20 replaced a 12 mm prime lens and has been great for things like photographing a dove sitting on a nest inside a porch light fixture, three fishermen landing a salmon in the cramped cockpit of a 20-foot boat and bats inside a small cave, where I wanted to get as much of the cave in the image as possible. I was surprised by the difference that an additional 2 mm makes. I also love the HSM focusing system, which is virtually silent. You never hear motor noise on the videos. What's not so great? The f3.5 maximum aperture, but I'm not complaining, since lenses that offer the same image quality and f2.8 are at least double the price.

Just got it but so far, so good.

Have just received this lens so I haven't had time to use it much, however, I have found it very satisfactory so far and am enjoying using it. Great shots and a pleasure to use.

Much more uses than landscape shots

My wife is in realestate and this lens takes exceptional pictures of rooms for her advertising. Fun lens to get creative with.

"Great Canon alternative"

By

We're fairly new to photography but we decided to get a wide angle and a telephoto for various upcoming trips. We took it up the coast to Fort Bragg and also to Alaska. This would give us plenty of opportunity to make use of the wide angle ability of the lens. However, I found that we didn't really need to use it as often as we thought, landscapes didn't need to be taken at such a wide angle to be aesthetically pleasing. The lens takes very good pictures and I have no complaints about it from that perspective. It can be quite useful if you are close to the subject (can't get further away) but still want to capture the whole scene then this performs admirably. We just found we didn't use it as often as we thought we might. If it's what you need then it's worth it but if you have another lens that goes down to 15mm and that suits your needs then you probably don't need this lens.

Great Lens!

I found this to be a great lens for city skylines and expansive landscapes where a narrower lens just wouldn't work. Pictures come out sharp and clear. Highly recommend.
