Re: Sigma or Tokina?

That's a tough call. I had the same choice recently. They both get a good rating but I went for the Sigma and the extra 2mm.

Re: Sigma or Tokina?

Same here as extra 2mm gives an extra 10 degrees view. Been very happy with Sigma

Good price on new UK Sigma 10-20mm here :- http://www.pixalo.com/community/ebay...uly-16208.html

Re: Sigma or Tokina?

I went for the Sigma. It got the silver award in the WA lens test in DP (after I'd bought it!). The Tonkina was rated a little lower than the Sigma.

You will not be disappointed with the Sigma.

Re: Sigma or Tokina?

Tokina here, i've read many reviews rating one better that the other but for me went for the tonkina and haven't been disapointed in any way, the build quality of the tokina is best of all the lenses i have and image quality second is suberb these were taken the the Tokina

Re: Sigma or Tokina?

I went a Sigma 12-24 4.5-5.6 EX DG HSM only beacause of the fact that I shoot with full frame sensor most of the time with wide angle. The 10-20mm has issues with Vignetting on full frame. But would be great on a D70.
I get about 120 degrees view with 12-24 with full frame 5D.

Have shot the 10-20mm on a D2Hs with some good results.

I just got the tokina...so far I am impressed, have not had too much of a chance to play with it yet. Built like a tank.

Re: Sigma or Tokina?

The Sigma is something on my list; but it's a tough call, both are very good lenses
