I sold my 12-24 pentax to buy the Sigma 8-16 so no photo comparison. The sigma is slightly longer but is slimmer. The sigma takes up less room in your bag since the lens hood is the same width as the lens. The lens moves in and out under the hood being out furthest for 8mm effectively adjusting as you zoom. The pentax distorted at 12mm with distortions gone by 16mm. the sigma distorts at 8mm with distortions gone by 12mm. The pentax is one stop faster.
