Description: The Sigma 12-24mm f/4.5-5.6 has a large angle of view (122 degrees super wide angle of view at 12mm along the diagonal axis) and is ideal for shootings indoor as well as landscape photography.

It has a variable angle of view from 122 degrees at 84.1 degrees. Four Special Low Dispersion (SLD) glass elements are provided for effective compensation of colour aberration, which is a common problem with super-wide angle lenses. Two pieces of Glass Mold and one-piece hybrid aspherical lenses offer excellent correction for distortion as well as all types of aberration. By effective arrangement of lens elements and advanced technology this lens has Super Compact dimensions of 100mm full-length, and 87mm maximum diameter.

It is equipped with Inner focusing system that will keep the length of the lens unchanged while controlling aberration. Equipped with HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor system and offering Full Time Manual Focusing. It has a minimum focusing distance 28cm at all focal lengths. This lens is equipped with an integral Petal-type hood to block out extraneous light

Review Date: Thu June 8, 2006 Would you recommend the product? Yes | Price you paid?: 450.00 | Rating: 9 

Pros: Optically excellent
Cons: Weight, price, 10-20mm is out

Really like this lense but I am going to sell it anyway. An excellent piece of glass providing you get a good sample (mine was fortunately). Crisp shots even at the wide end at the edges.

Shame the 10-20 was not out when I bought mine
