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.
Summary: This was always cited as being a better lens than its slower f4-5.6 sibling and with a correspondingly higher price tag, so it should.Therefore with much eagerness to get some true ultrawide-angle 'punch' into my D7000 photos, I was so disappointed when anything taken wider than f6.3 just looks...
