Re: How is the Sigma 10-20mm?

Had for about 10 years. Good lens. Bright enough to be practical, light, can even find filters, not bad for flare, pretty good for focus. At 10mm is a bit soft at the edges, but it's alright. Any distortion is mild and consistent (very easily correctable - no weird waviness), and any occasional high-contrast CA towards the edges is also generally easily correctable. Durable too. Very good value. The depth of field is so great at this focal length that you can easily have near to far in focus. It's crop-factor only, however, and I can't recall what crop factor is supported for these (DC not DG) kinds of lenses on the coming full frame Sigma: it'd be cool if it was even less than the SD1M.

As a reminder, you'll need to remove the lens hoods for any on-camera flash usage.
