This is the perfect companion for a telephoto, a normal and a macro lens. The pictures that this lens produces are excellent. Very nice outdoors and also indoors. Not great at low light, but this lens can do wonders in long exposures on a tripod.

Abe's of Maine has the best price for this excellent lens. Ultra wide angle for DX format DSLRs, very wide with excellent image quality from corner to corner. Great for shooting indoor architecture, general architecture, landscape photography etc. Very good built quality, zooming feels very damped. Autofocus works very well. Cons are it is very sensitive to flares and reflections, and the f stop isnt that great.

This lens is just perfect. It works as presented and better than I expected. I can get the wide angle interior shots I have looking for. Thank you for having the greatest price on a product recommended by the "Nikonian".

This lens is an excellent choice for the money. I have photographed interior rooms and landscapes and both were impressive. I plan to use this lens for creating HDR images of landscapes. This is the first Lens that I have purchased that was not a Nikon product. I'm not disappointed in the quality and saved a lot of money.

Recommend getting or using a shoe flash. The built in flash on my D90 casts a shadow that this wide angle lens picks up. The lens is heavy compared to my other lenses but it works great.

At times has a hard time focusing. About a week after I purchased this lens It was dropped while attached to the camera and landed directly on the lens. The only resulting damage was some cracked plastic. I continue to use this lens on a daily basses with no repairs and no complaints.

This lens is a college student's dream come true. It completely opens the world of wide angle photography without the ridiculously expensive price tag attached to lenses of such high quality. It gives you complete freedom to explore and be creative, and everything that comes out of the camera absolutely astounds me. Bottom line- It's fast, it's lightweight, and it's durable. I couldn't ask for anything more.

Comments:

As a Realtor with a 20+ year photography hobby, including darkroom, My photos were the envy of the office with the standard kit lens. Add the Sigma 10-20 and now at a whole new level. Have to conciously think of the perspective but the expanded scope of the interiors is amazing. Stiching for visual tours can be a challenge, but one technique I found outside was to step back across street an crop to create a panoramic from one frame. It was a difficult decision between the Tokina 12-24; Tamron 10-24, but ruled out the Nikon due to price and only if not satisfied with the less expensive alternatives. Took a chance on the Sigma,as both the Tokina and Tamron are available locally at the 2 pro level camera stores. Took test shots with them and on close evaluation, really was not satisfied with them. Only concern was the higher apature on the Sigma, but have not found that to be an issue as try to shoot around f8 since all ultra-wides are not at their best wide open anyway and tend to hit the sweet spot between f8 and f16 at most focal lengths, and particurally at the widest.
