Sigma 12-24 really performs well

Nice lens for my A7

  • Excerpt: I bought this lens for my sony A7 using LAEA-4 since no sony product with this focal length. The focus is fast and picture is sharp once you're > f8. You can't hear the motor when the lens is doing the auto focus. I Love the fast focus of this lens. This lens is perfect if you are looking for a UWAL with FF format. The lens is almost a weight of the Sony 70-200 f4. Quality wise the lens is made of metal with rubber rings. This lens is not a weather sealed.
  • Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction

a great lens

  • Excerpt: I have been using this lens on my D700 for eighteen months now to shoot low light architectural interiors. The combination of the extreme wide angle & the exceptional low light capabilities of the camera have allowed me to capture images way beyond anything I could ever achieve before. Yes I could dredge up a few minor complaints, but these are far outweighed by the positive results & wonderful photographs.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Reliable, Rugged, Strong Construction, Versatile

Great Lens

DHPhoto, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I too was dubious about whether this lens would be sharp, and was pleasantly surprised to find it very sharp, certainly much more so than I was expecting. You can get shots with this lens you just cannot get with any other. Yes, it has the normal very wide angle distortion, but work with it and be aware of it and it is not a problem and use it creatively.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Fun, Strong Construction, Unique
  • Cons: Heavy, No Filters

Great Lens!

  • Excerpt: We used to have the Sigma 8-16mm for our Canon 40d and it was our go to lens for landscape photography. When we upgraded to the full-frame 6d we bought this lens. We love it just as much as the 8-16mm and it is still our go to lens for landscape photography!

Surprizingly sharp

  • Excerpt: I was a bit dubious as to whether this lens would satisfy me as far as image quality was concerned but it certainly does. Quite sharp edge to edge and no more distortion than is acceptable with lenses this wide. A little chromatic aberration was fixed with a single click in Lightroom 5. The aperture is a tad small but I can live with that for this quality at this price. Excellent value.My lens was the Canon fitting, for FF (5DIII).
  • Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Sharp
  • Cons: Heavy, Poor in Low Light

Really not a bad lens at all

Michael Del Priore, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: Being an f/4.5-5.6 lens, it's not bulky or heavy. Shooting landscapes you don't really use any wider than that anyways unless you are a wedding/portrait photographer and had a desire to use such a wide angle. Also using the Nikkor 14-24 2.8, I thought the Sigma was pretty sharp and not too far off from the Nikkor. There is slight vignette but I don't mind, It's not bad.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight

For me, this is a must-have lens.

  • Excerpt: * Great for when I want to take as much territory as possible in a single shot - especially when the conditions are not conducive to shooting a panoramic. * Enables me to take unique photographs that are only possible with a lens of this ultra-width. * Enables me to deliberately exaggerate or diminish the apparent size of specific subjects. * Frequently provides me with a distinct advantage when I'm shooting in competitive situations.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus
  • Cons: Forget About Polarizers, Forget Using Filters, Front Element Vulnerable, Keeping It From My Son
