Excerpt: As the Canon 11-24 lens is too expensive to me, so, I choose this one as my wide angle lens. Now, I got 11-24 wide angle zoom lens, 24-70 standard zoom lens and a 70-200 telephoto zoom lens. The best part of this lens is the price, it is relatively cheap among the wide zoom lens.
Excerpt: THE GOOD: - Phenomenally large view for landscapes. - Fast auto-focus. THE BAD: - Autofocus does NOT work on the Nikon D810. - No weather sealing. All together, this is a "MUST HAVE" lens when it comes to gigantic buildings, large places and other landscape photography.
Summary: Used on 5d mk3, Very sharp above f8. Has significant vignetting, just over expose a bit, and use the lens correction in post and it's not noticeable. At 12mm, there is pretty bad distortion in the corners that isn't easily corrected in some scenes, but if you're conscious of it you can adjust your...
Excerpt: Used this sigma 12-24 lens with my 5D mark3 without any problem, quality came out great. I used this for my landscape or interior application photos and I knew it's an f4.5 lens so using a tripod is necessary at low light space. Compare with canon 11-24 f4, this is much cheaper.
Excerpt: When i bought the Sigma 12-24 i was not expecting a fast lens, but for the price tag i was expecting good optics that will provide consistent and sharp results. I am using the Sigma with my 7D mark II (it is not compatible with my full frame 5D Mark III) and the results i am getting are far from...
Cons: Blurry Focus, Heavy, Poor in Low Light, Slow Focus
Summary: This lens is very nicely made and works perfectly. These bulbous lenses attract dust like crazy so when you use them bring a cloth or puffer to clean the lens periodically. 12mm might be a little wide for many of you as the distortion along the outter width is dramatic but that also lends itself in...
Excerpt: I have two of these 12-24 lenases; a 2004 version for Nikon and 2012 version for Canon. The earlier 12-24 was soft at the edges at wide apertures; but good at F8. Both are very good for archichitecture; interiors and landscapes The later 2011 version is significantly better wide open; but does...
Excerpt: The Sigma 12-24mm is an ok lens, but that's about it. With a maximum aperture of f4.5-5.6, it's slow, and edge sharpness is not that good at times - you want to stop down a couple of stops. I shoot adventure and extreme sporting events, and need a superwide regularly.
