Sigma 10-20 to Sigma 8-16.... Would you, Could you, Should you?
Aug 7, 2010

I currently have a Sigma 10-20 lens and have enjoyed using this Ultra Wide Angle (UWA) for over a year. It's great for architectural, landscape, seascape and interior shooting.

I've been contemplating the switch to the newer Sigma 8-16. My question is to those who own the Sigma 8-16 and have upgraded or switched from another UWA lens......

1. In your opinion, is it worth the upgrade/switch or is there hardly any difference? Does the extra 2 mm on the wide side make a significant difference?

2. Are you satisfied with the build and optical quality of the newer lens?

3. From which lens did you make the switch (if any)? (i.e. Canon 10-22, Tokina 11-16, Sigma 10-20, etc.)

What is the street price of the Sigma 8-16?

Feel free to post any photos from the Sigma 8-16, preferably with EXIF.
