Wow! what a lens. It's great value for money.
Using a lens with such a wide angle is great fun; wild and wacky angles are a there for the taking! Add to that the great architectural shots and it's a dream.
But, why the Sigma? It's low price (compared to big camera brand lenses) yet it's a solid little lens with great optical quality. Before buying I was able to take some test shots with both this Sigma 10-20mm and a Nikon 12-24mm f/4.0. Which was best? The Nikon - but only just. The test shots taken at max aperture were a tad sharper in the corners/edges but stop down a bit and no real world difference. So, given the price difference it was a no brainer; had to be the Sigma.
On a recent trip to Iceland my son and I used it extensively on our D80 & D200 cameras, it performed wonderfully. Autofocus was quick and quiet, depth of field tremendous, and allowed great shots to be taken inside the old buildings. The only caveat, don't use a polarising filter at the wide end of the zoom range - the field of view is so wide the filter effect only applies in the middle part of the frame leaving a strange pattern. Better to use a graduated filter instead.
Would I recommend this lens - YES!

Good photographic quality for the price

 | Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

I have two of these, which I use on two different bodies (Nikon and Sigma), mainly for landscapes. Angle of view is 102.4 deg at 10mm (63.8 deg at 20mm) on a digital DX/SD frame (this lend will produce vignetting on FX), quite wide and beaten only by the Sigma 8-16 sister lens, which is 35% more expensive. Optical construction is good (3 low-dispersion elements + 3 aspherical elements). Optical performance is very good in terms of color rendition (and specifically, of chromatic aberrations). Sharpness and fall-off are good, except deep in the corners. Distortion has a rather complex pattern (turns from barrel to pincushion going from 10 to 20mm) but is tolerable overall, being mostly confined to the edges. Mechanically the lens looks cheap, as many other Sigma lenses. The more recently built units have a better finish. This lens includes an HSM (hyper sonic motor) actuator, which allows it to auto-focus on motor-less bodies (e.g., the low cost Nikon DSLR bodies). Photographic performance is nice overall. I would spend more (+70% on average) only for the Nikon 10-24 f/3.5-4.5 . Unless your only photo subjects are resolution charts, you will not be disappointed with this lens.

Does What It Says On The Box

 | Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
Created: 10/02/11
I bought this lens having read reviews on it on photography sites and from seeing results on my online photo account.
On arrival it felt great on the camera with the focus being sharp and quick.
It is a little on the heavy side but I like the positive feel of it. The construction feels good and operation smooth. Images are pin sharp through the focal range.
This lens should figure on any short list of anyone who wants a wide angle lens and is serious about their photography.

UPDATE JAN 2012
I have rarely had the lens off my camera since buying it. I am a serious amateur photographer who is an active member of several on line communities where photographs are sold. The larger proportion of quality landscape photographers define this lens as the 'must have' bit of kit. Very occasionally there is a very slight softening of image quality at 10mm (image enlarged to 200% in photoshop) but most lenses will do this.
I have recommended this lens countless times to other members of the on line communities and once these photographers have purchased their lenses they are also very impressed with it as well.
Save yourself some money from the manufactures lenses and buy this third party lens!

Very nice lens for the money

Created: 18/02/08
This lens is really, really wide and great fun to use. Given the price, it's excellent value for money. When used at 10mm, it is noticeably wider than the widest Nikon AF-S lens (the 12-24mm - which is twice the price too) so will give your landscape shots even more dramatic effect. Yes, there's some distortion at 10mm, but it doesn't take away from the results in everyday use. It's study and well-built, though the lens cap is terrible (get a Nikon 77mm cap and keep the Sigma in the box). Autofocus is very quick and rarely hunts up and down the range. It's for crop sensor cameras (APS-C) only, so full frame sensor owners should look elsewhere - though it will work on a D3, but in cropped sensor mode. This and the Nikon 12-24mm AF-S are the only autofocusing choices for Nikon D40 or D40x users, and I'm glad I went for the cheaper and wider Sigma!

Wide Enough To Fit Your House In

Created: 29/06/10
The Sigma 10-20mm 4-5.6 is a fantastic wide angle lens for the money. At the time of its launch it was the only budget ultra wide angle lens built for the cropped censer DSLR's. It may not be the fastest of lens with an f stop of 4 wide open but this does not prove to be a massive problem. Even when shooting in low light it is possible to put the ISO up a bit to compensate. I have found this lens to be sharp and a lot of fun to use. There's a slight barrel roll effect when shooting at 10mm but I found this to aid its creative uses. With Sigma the lenses can vary a lot so sometimes it is just down to luck how good the one you get is. of course if you buy new and you are unlucky enough to get a not so good one, it can be sent off for tuning (for want of a better word).

The HSM moter is silent and the fact you can tweek the focusing while in AF is a real bonus. I would recommend this lens for its price, it is much cheaper than Nikon's own offering, and as money is an object to me that made a real difference. Another one to look at is Tamron 10-24mm which is around the same price. Personally I just prefer Sigma for better or worse.

One final thing, you will need to own flashgun for flash photography with this lens. Otherwise you will have a massive Lens shadow in all your shots.
