Excerpt: My mom buy this lens, and it came with back-focusing problems. Now, I must contact with my country's distributor of Sigma lenses (I'm from Chile), to return this lens.
Hope you can check the product before buying it.
It failed on arrival, nothing but dark photos, sent back

Excerpt: I can not really rate this lens as I had it only for three days and sent it back for replacement. When my new lens arrives in two days (replacement at B & H is outstanding, with perfect RME paperwork and attitude by employees), I will be able to rate this lens.
Excerpt: I had the Sigma 10-20 F/4 - 5.6 and with limited use and it suddenly would not longer focus. I sent it off to be repaired and it still does not work after $172.00 worth of repairs. It worked right out of the box and when I went to use it on a shoot it would not focus.
Summary: I bought this lens based on a Popular Photography test and a recent Sigma purchase. I'm very satisfied with the 50~150mm, but I returned this lens. I wanted to like it, but I continued to have focus problems and unsharp images.
Summary: Maybe I just got a lemon. I worked with this lens for the first time today and I noticed that it is focused at infinity when the outer scale reads 3 ft. And when I turn the focus ring to the infinity mark - at the line, the focus starts to go out. Going beyond this mark it goes further out of focus.
Excerpt: I have only read good things about this lens so I wasn't hesitant about buying it, especially considering it was half the price of the Nikon 12-24mm. However, I was so unimpressed that I returned it. Now maybe I got a 'bad one' but it did not take sharp photos at all.
