Product Description

Product Description

With its wide angle view from 102.4 degrees it can produce striking images with exaggerated perspective. The maximum aperture of F3.5 is ideal for indoor shooting and it enables photographers to emphasize the subject. Two ELD (Extraordinary Low Dispersion) glass elements and a SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass element provide excellent correction of color aberration. Four aspherical lenses provide correction for distortion and allow compact and lightweight construction. The super multi-layer coating reduces flare and ghosting. High image quality is assured throughout the entire zoom range. The incorporation of HSM (Hyper-Sonic Motor) ensures a quiet and high-speed auto focus as well as full-time manual focusing capability. This lens has a minimum focusing distance of 9.4 inches (24cm) throughout the entire zoom range and a maximum magnification ratio of 1:6.6. The lens design incorporates an inner focusing system which eliminates front lens rotation, making the lens particularly suitable for using the Petal-type hood and polarizing filter. The Petal-type hood blocks extraneous light and reduces internal reflection.

    If you're looking for a wide angle lens for your Nikon, then you should really consider this offering.

    Build Quality:
    In recent years, Sigma has improved considerably, to the extent that it's easily able to compete with Nikon, especially in the same price brackets. This lens has a real "quality" feel to it. It's robust, smooth and certainly well put together.

    Accessories:
    As with all Sigmas, you get a nice quality case with strap. The supplied hood hardly seems worth having, as the field of view is so wide the hood barely extends 1cm in places.

    Range:
    As you go to wider focal lengths, the change becomes increasingly more noticeable. You won't see any difference from 200mm to 201mm, but you certainly will from 10mm to 11mm. Opening up to 10mm gives you just that bit more in the frame than would be possible at 11 or 12mm. Going up to 20mm is a bonus too, as it then takes you up to the no doubt 18-nnn range of your next lens.

    Focus:
    Autofocus is very quick and near-silent. It's not as if the barrel has to turn much anyway. A plus point is that the end doesn't rotate, so the hood/any filters attached remain at the same angle.

    Image Quality:
    Any wide angle will produce curvature at the edges of the frame, more apparent when looking at straight lines and shooting 'up' or 'down'. This can be just what you're looking for, or easily corrected if not. I have read reviews that state the distortion isn't linear, i.e. there's some "wobble" in the lines that you may see on a flat horizon, but I can't say it's shown up in any noticeable way so far. CA is non-existant (althought my D90 does correct for this, but it doesn't show on my old D70 either).

    Bought this to go with a Nikon 18-200mm zoom on a D90 and it is fantastic. No regrets at all about this purchase and the improved quality of my pictures proves that it was a very good buy. I love the extra width and depth that it gives to all types of pictures and it is a lens that I will keep for a very long time. Pictures are sharper and consistantly better with this lens and landscapes in particular seem to have a lot more "drama" if you get down low and up close

    I've used this extensively for the last year or so on my Nikon D5000 and bought it predominantly for action (rock-climbing) and landscape shots. Unfortunately, the auto-focus was extremely disappointing so I returned it. It was checked in the UK and then apparently sent to Japan for further analysis. The result that came back was that the lens was "within tolerance" but despite this, I was given a replacement.

    I tested this and found that it was again, not good at focussing. I knew before buying the lens that there were issues with Sigma's quality control and suspected this second lens is also faulty. I've learned to live with it, and now generally manually focus. I also never use it wide open but whenever I can, have it set to about f/8 - not terribly practical!

    My recommendation would be to go for the Tokina f2.8 (which now auto focusses on the D5000, which it previously wouldn't) or, if you can't afford that, get the f/4-5.6 Sigma, as the extra gained from the f3.5 is pretty much rendered unusable by the blurriness at that aperture.

    To summarise: when it's sharp, it's a good lens but it's often not sharp, particularly at the periphery. Also, due to the 82mm diam. front end there is some vignetting when using the Cokin P-series from 10-12mm or so, even with their special single-slot, wide angle filter holder. I'd give it 3.5 stars if I could, but have gone for 3 here.

    Being a dedicated Nikon user, I rarely buy lenses by other makers. I bought this on the strength of magazine reviews of the Sigma 10-20mm performance. It totally exceeded my expectations and will now consider other Nikon-fit Sigma lenses.
