Sigma 10-20mm f4-5.6 EX DC HSM Lens Review

 

The 10-20mm F4-5.6 EX DC HSM is Sigma's offering in the APS-C ultrawide zoom sector, first announced in February 2005. It was introduced amongst a flurry of announcements as manufacturers raced to provide wideangle zooms for the burgeoning APS-C format...

Equal widest angle in its class ; Very low chromatic aberration ; Fast and silent HSM autofocus ; Good build quality

Rather inconsistent sharpness (partially due to curvature of field) ; Pronounced, complex distortion at 10mm

The Sigma 10-20mm F4-5.6 EX DC HSM is, on paper at least, a very attractive option for APS-C users looking for an ultra-wideangle zoom. The standout selling points are undoubtedly that 10mm wideangle view and the HSM focusing motor, which when coupled...

Review Sigma 10 mm f/2.8 EX DC Fisheye HSM (SIG)

 

For other camera mounts, other fisheye lenses are available too, such as the Tokina 10-17 mm and Panasonic 8 mm. Nevertheless, for a camera with a Sigma mount, this lens is unique.

Product Specifications

10-20mm F4-5.6 EX DC HSM lens allows enjoyment of super wide-angle photography and it is a very powerful tool for indoor shooting and landscape photography Wide angle of view (102.4° at 10mm and 63.8° at 20mm) offers the photographer greater freedom of expression. These are special DC Series Lenses designed so that the image circle matches the smaller size of the image sensor of most digital SLR cameras. Their specialized design gives these lenses the ideal properties for digital cameras, the compact and lightweight construction is an added bonus! Three SLD glass elements are employed for effective compensation of color aberration, which is a common problem with super-wide angle lenses. One piece of glass mold and two hybrid aspherical lenses, offer excellent correction for distortion, as well as all types of aberration. This lens is equipped with an inner focusing system, and the models which are equipped with HSM system provide quiet, high speed autofocus shooting and also offer full time manual focusing. It has a minimum focusing distance of 24cm (9.4") at all focal lengths. The non-rotating lens barrel perfectly suits the petal shaped lens hood. A circular polarizing filter can also be used conveniently. Please note: Vignetting will occur if the lens is used with digital cameras with image sensors larger than APS-C size or 35mm SLR cameras.
