Love my Sigma 10-20mm - Wide Angle Lens!

By 

from Waukegan, IL

Comments about Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6 EX DC HSM Lens for Canon:

I love this lens so much! It's super sharp, fast, and doesn't weigh a ton.

I prefer wide angle pictures, doesn't matter if it's landscape or events, I just like the look of them and this lens delivers them every time. It's not bulky but it's not small, either. The front part of the lens is a bit bulbous so you might want to buy a lens filter for protection. The focus motor is pretty quick, makes a great walk around lens, especially on cropped sensor cameras since you're not getting the complete 10mm angle.

You might note a little bit of vignetting around the corners sometimes, but not a big issue. Also, people have to be shot at the 20mm end just because they seem a little bit distorted on the 10mm end. I use this for weddings mostly, to get a shot of the complete ceremony, including guests and I love its results.

Great lens that shows you don't need to drop a ton of cash to receive a quality product. Definitely recommend.

Great WA lens that is definitely a landscape photographer's fav

By 

from Austin, TX

Comments about Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6 EX DC HSM Lens for Canon:

This lens produces beautiful photos. Keep in mind, it's highly recommended for landscapes, and not much else. BUT with an open mind, you can create very unique photos with this lens with or without a landscape. It ALMOST doubles as a fisheye, without the cheesy WAY out of proportion fisheye effect.

I highly recommend it if you want to shoot more artistic shots. If you're just getting into photography, it's not a lens you want to get first on your list. A walk-around is always necessary, and for some, a telephoto lens. This is indeed a specialty lens that you may or may not use very often.

Lots of people purchase it thinking they can use it in all occassion because it's so wide. It doesn't work like that. Taking pictures of people will most likely blow them up to look fatter. It's not good in low light situations at all (f/4 is NOT impressive). It's a "landscape lens" because you most likely will put it on a tripod (which negates the slow f/4-5.6).

Overall, it's a great lens that produces some beautiful images. It's aslo built like a tank!

Loving the ultra wide angles of my Sigma 10-20mm for Canon

By 

from Hayward, CA

Comments about Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6 EX DC HSM Lens for Canon:

I took this new lens for a spin these past two weekends and am loving it.  I lean towards taking landscape and architectural photography so this lens is right up my alley.  I am not regretting it one bit getting this lens.  My copy is pretty sharp, sharp enough to where I don't need to do much post-process sharpening.  It focuses quick and is silent.  Also, it's not the heavy a lens in my opinion.  And feels pretty sturdy and solidly built and comes with a lens hood and pouch!

Probable the only gripe I have of this lens, and I knew of this prior to purchasing it, was that it doesn't have IS and is only at f/4.  For outdoor and bright light, it's fantastic.  For indoor, you def need a tripod or flash.  But don't let this stop you from getting this lens.  Even at f/2.8 (the competitor's equivalent lens speed), you'd still need a flash or tripod anyway.

 

Bottom line, I'm loving it and it's on my camera 90% of the time, along with my "nifty fifty" on it the rest of the time.
