Sigma 12-24mm f/4.5-5.6 DG HSM II User Reviews
Better than I thought
“Got this lens and I was very surprised. Distortions are not as bad as in reviews. In the worst case if straight lines are very close to the edge and the edge is just few feet from the lens I get barrel distortion. Easily fixed and at the most I lose 1mm. Probably less. In real life it almost never happens. This lens is also very sharp wide open maybe even slightly sharper than Canon 16-35mm F2.8 at F4.” – By Eugene Powers
Sigma 12-24mm II by nh_photofan
“Excellent landscape lens. Good corner sharpness when stopped down. Better than my beloved 17-40L Canon. (They have similar MTF charts). Good autofocus, fast and accurate.” – By Swee
Got a winner!
“Solid build, very smooth and well damped focus and zoom rings, small for what it does, great sharpness across most of the frame, fast and accurate AF performance, great fit and finish.” – By Dwegs
The best full frame wide zoom lens, period!
“Very sharp wide open and very usable focal lenght from 12-24mm. 1.6x on APS sensor, and it becomes very handy for traveling. Built very solidly. Highly recommended. No decentering or stiff focusing like a few of other sigma copies (on few cases).” – By sseng.p.
