Much better than expected

Excerpt: I've been awaiting an affordable extra-wide lens for my APC format Pentax. I know how hard it is to make a good, low-cost lens that is much wider than 20-30 mm, even with high f.numbers. There are a handful of selections for Pentax DSLRs, and for the most part they are expensive, whether fixed or zoom. That is expected. This lens always gets the "It's affordable but not so good." type of reviews. They say, "It's slow, it's full of flare and distortion.
Excerpt: This sense went beyond my expectation for the price. It comes with a nice carrying case and a hood for the lens which looks super sharp. The construction is rigid and it has very nice small details. A very pretty looking lense. It is poor in low light which is to be expected, but the sharpness is very nice, and there is small hardly noticable distortion near the edges. Great for landscape shots and timeless. Below is a link to a time-lapse I shot with this lense.
Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: The sigma 10-20mm gives you incredible range! It works well one when there's enough light to work with! I went to a museum and captured amazing shots WITH a tripod. The major downside is the poor performance in low light conditions, it's almost inpossible to get great shots at night.
Excerpt: Just got mine today and tested it on a Nikon D90 and D7000. It mounted easily and focused quickly. A preliminary review of the images proved satisfactorily but perhaps a bit soft below 5.6 aperture. Seems a tad heavy, but I knew the weight before I bought it. Mine must be a newer version (ok with me) because it does not have the af/mf tab on the lens as some pictures of the lens show.I got this lens for a specific purpose (landscapes) and am glad that I did so.
