    Sigma 12-24 EX DG - first pics (Here ya go Sebastian)

    Okay this little baby showed up at work yesterday. So I of course had to stop and take some pics. All were taken at ISO100, unsharp mask in PS.

    1) 13mm f4.5 1/750 - minor vignetting in the corners is due to me forgetting to take off the adaptor ring that goes over the lens hood. Doh!

    2) 13mm f16 1/90

    3) 12mm f6.7 1/90 - you can see some distortion in the upper left corner

    4) 12mm f11 1/60

    Hahaha. Yeah - I'm quite pleased. And the view at 12mm when sticking it on the EOS 3? SICK. I love it.

    Cool Great lens there!

    I love wide angle lenses. Your images make me wonder if I should have thought it out before getting the 17-40 Just kidding. I love the 17-40 and for me it's the right one.

    However, I love the angle of view on these. I hope you post more soon.

    Yeah, that 17-40 is a beautiful lens. In fact when I went into the camera store to get the 10D, that's the lens the guy put on for me to "test drive" with - oh those sneaky salesmen. But an effective 27 just isn't wide enough for me, otherwise the 17-40 definitely would have been my choice.

    Talking Lenses! Gotta love 'em!

    They sure have a way of making us happy!

    Gene - I absolutely LOVE that 17-40. Awesome results. The first time I used it was on our trip to NYC.

    Danielle - I'm tempted to do the exact thing as Gene after seeing your pics.......however, it will have to wait until next year's tax returns.

    Your pictures were really impressive. I hope you'll post more soon.

    Missed seeing you in NYC, hope to see you in Boston.

    Cool That Sigma is Popular!

    I noticed that B&H are out of stock......Canon better listenup and make a few more wide angle zooms for digital SLR's.

    I am impressed....

    I am absolute impressed by the pictures. Which camera did you use for them? Did you use any filters?

    I have got a Canon EOS 300D since Christmas last year and I am looking for a wide angle lense now. The Sigma 12-24 is my absolute favorite at the moment - although it is really expensive.

    Maybe you can help me with a last question concerning the possibility to use filters: I am using filters with 55mm / 58 mm at the moment (Polfilter, UV-Filter some effect filters). I know they will nor work with the lense, but what do I need for the lense and what are the approxomately costs?

    Thanks,

    Re: Sigma 12-24 EX DG - first pics (Here ya go Sebastian)

    Until about an hour ago I didn't know this site existed. After agonising over a wide angle for my 20D when it arrives, I asked Google about the Sigma and there were the answers. Great images Danielle, it sure looks a better proposition than the Canon 10-22 EF-S especially for those of us who are still fond of our EOS 3's etc.

    Looks a great place to spend time once one finds their way around.

    Welcome, Stanley.

    Mig, do you have any 12mm examples on film? That's what interests me about this lens, being able to use it on film and digital.

    Has anyone used this lens for close up action photography with people? I love very wide lenses for people.

    Re: Sigma 12-24 EX DG - first pics (Here ya go Sebastian)

    The images look great and it looks and reads to be a fine lens.

    However, if anyone is considering a zoom lens in this focal range you may also want to give the Tokina 12-24 a look.

    It has a constant f4 aperture (which is a big plus right there)

    This thread is almost 4 years old, you may want to view threads more recent.

    Wow! This thread is an oldie but goodie! It's great to read threads from a while back. I've since sold the Canon 17-40 - and now I have the new Tokina 11-16mm/f2.8 which is also a great lens.
