Product Highlights
  • Zoom Super Wide Angle

The Sigma 10-20mm f/3.5 EX DC HSM Autofocus Zoom is a super-wide angle lens with a maximum aperture of f/3.5 throughout the entire zoom range, ensuring high image quality. The maximum aperture of f/3.5 allows enough light in to make it a great choice for indoor shooting as well as landscapes and creative portraiture.

With its wide angle view from 102.4 degrees, this lens can empower the photographer to produce creative images with exaggerated perspective. This lens has a Super Multi-Layer coating that coating reduces flare and ghosting. With a HSM (Hyper-Sonic Motor), the lens operates quietly and at high speed in both autofocus and full-time manual modes.

The lens design incorporates an inner focusing system which eliminates front lens rotation, making the lens particularly suitable for using the Petal-type hood, reducing extraneous light and reducing internal reflection.

Two ELD (Extraordinary Low Dispersion) glass elements and a SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass element provide excellent correction of color aberration. Four aspherical lenses provide correction for distortion and allow compact and lightweight construction. This Sigma lens has a minimum focusing distance of 9.4 inches (24cm) throughout the entire zoom range and a maximum magnification ratio of 1:6.6.

Note! Vignetting will occur if the lens is used with 35mm SLR cameras or digital cameras with image sensors larger than APS-C size

    I had this wide angle lens for a month so far and used it primarily for outdoors scenics and nature photography. I debated buying the Canon equivalent wide angle lens but decided to try this one after reading most of the user's reviews. It is a sharp lens, beautifully constructed, easy to use, fast and focuses accurately. It is slightly heavy but not a big issue for me. It works great with my Rebell 3Ti when I needed the extra wide angle to capture the scenics. I highly recommend this lens and can't think of anything bad about it.

    Good for the price

    The lens is not as sharp than the CANON, but for the price, it does a pretty good job! Good enough for amateur and semi-pro

        I scheduled a vacation to the Grand Canyon, Death Valley, and Yellowstone. Needed a wide angle lens for my Canon 40D. Looked at Canon, Tamron, Sigma--liked the Sigma best on paper and price--not disappointed! Beautiful lens with good focus and clarity edge to edge. Used a polarizer (circular) and created mind-numbingly beautiful landscapes! Highly recommended!

                        Comments about Sigma 10-20mm f/3.5 EX DC HSM Autofocus Zoom Lens For Canon Cameras:

                        Purchased as shared lens at small newspaper. Considered this and Tokina's 11-16. For our purposes we felt the Tokina zoom range was too limiting, so we chose Sigma. No regrets. The lens is always checked out by one of our staff. Ability to zoom in a little allows staff to shoot dramatic wide angles as well as shots that look close to normal without having to change lenses. Fixed aperture makes it fast enough for some action usage. Good build quality. Was a little concerned about larger filter size, but aside from fact that you can't share filters with 77mm lens, it's a non-issue. Basically feels the same as a 77mm diameter lens. Not too big, easy to carry around. Haven't done any pixel peeping, but in general we are very happy with detail and sharpness. Nothing negative to say. Would definitely buy again.

                        I bought this lens as a super wide angle solution for wedding work. I shoot on a Canon 7D. I was considering the Canon 10-20, but it stops down from 3.5 to 4.5 as you zoom, I wanted at least a constant f4. This lens works very well, it's very sharp, and focuses quick. Only comment is that it does have some CA in extremely strong contract situations. However I shoot in RAW format, and I have never seen CA on this lens which cannot be removed in Camera RAW post work.

                          got this lens for architecture and city shots when I go on vacation with my canon t2i, this lens is very nice since its a relatively fast lens and focuses good, normal distortion at 10mm, not really noticeable at 20mm, great lens to carry with you everyday!!!

                          Comments about Sigma 10-20mm f/3.5 EX DC HSM Autofocus Zoom Lens For Canon Cameras:

                          I own most of the Canon L series lenses. I had the canon 10-22 a few years ago and liked it but didn't use it enough to justify the expense. Recently I found that I need more wide angle shots and was going to get the Canon again. I saw this and it had good reviews so I decided to try it. I am so glad that I did. This lens is very nice and much cheaper than Canon's. It is a little slower to focus and you have to pay attention to be sure that it is sharp but other than than it is close to perfect.

                          I bought this product for landscapes because of a trip I was planning to use on my Canon 60D. I ended up using it at the beach and loved every photo. The vignetting wasn't bad at all and easy to fix when it did happen. Once the sun broke the horizon it took really sharp photos. The lens gets a lot of complaints for being heavy and to be truthful it kind of is.. but it makes me feel more like its just built tough able to withstand a beating. Over the last few months it has taken a beating without any hick-ups. All in all I'm glad I added it to my collection.

                          I own a Canon T3i, all my pictures have been taken with a Canon 18-55mm, and using the sigma means a great difference. You really apreciate the angle of vision of 10mm, and it has a great sharpness

                            Comments about Sigma 10-20mm f/3.5 EX DC HSM Autofocus Zoom Lens For Canon Cameras:

                            The lens is great for those shots you want to cram a lot of what you see in a photograph. It is teriffic for buildings, landscapes or museum artifacts, where you can not afford to step back. It also works great for photos where you want a disproportionately large object to be included with your candid (e.g. take a person's photo in full height while including all of Seattle's space needle, being within 1/4 mile from the Needle).
                            It is well built, although a little below L lens standard. The lens is VERY wide at 10 mm; if youa re not carefull you can include your feet in the photograph. The sharpness is spectacular with F above 3.5. It is not heavy and handles nicely with 60 D.
                            My biggest disappointment with the lens is that you see a distorted view in the viewfinder, which looks significantly different from the photograph, especially at 10 mm. A good practice is to take the photo and decide later.

                            The lens is not as sharp than the CANON, but for the price, it does a pretty good job! Good enough for amateur and semi-pro
