Sigma AF 12-24mm f/4.5-5.6 EX DG - Review / Lab Test Report
5 July 2008
Conclusion: The Sigma AF 12-24mm f/4.5-5.6 EX DG is the most extreme full format ultra-wide zoom lens around and it is still a "mainstream" ultra-wide lens when used on APS-C DSLRs. If you're looking for a future-proof "duo-format" lens in this class - well, this may be it.
Excerpt: There's no getting away from the fact that this is a bulky, wide (in the physical sense) lens and weighs in at 600g. As you'd expect from the weight, build quality is robust, and it's a very solid, well-finished lens. It's finished in matt black and sports a HSM motor for reduced AF noise.

16 October 2007
Conclusion: The Sigma AF 12-24mm f/4.5-5.6 HSM DG II is an exciting piece of equipment. The field-of-view at its 12mm setting is simply stunning and regardless of any performance debate this is simply a substantial differentiator / selling point compared to all other ultra-wide DSLR lenses.
Sigma AF 12-24mm f/4.5-5.6 HSM DG II - APS-C Format Review / Lab Test Report
30 September 2007
Conclusion: The Sigma AF 12-24mm f/4.5-5.6 HSM DG II is the only "one size fits all" (formats) ultra-wide zoom lens on the market. It can give you decent results and truly extreme views on full format DSLRs and it is very good along across the more "conventional" zoom range on APS-C DSLRs.
