Sigma's 12-24mm f/4.5-5.6 DG HSM II Lens (For Canon) is designed for use with full-frame digital cameras, and offers a dramatically ultra-wide, minimally distorted zoom lens with a field of view from 122° to 84.1°. This range makes it ideal for the tightest of interiors, as well as for dramatic landscape photography. Using a camera with an APS-C sensor will give you an effective range of 17-35mm, also a very attractive wide-angle zoom range.

One Special Low Dispersion (SLD) glass element and four "F" Low Dispersion (FLD) glass elements compensate for color aberration and deliver improved image quality. Three glass mold elements and one hybrid aspherical lens give you compact, lightweight construction (3.3" diameter x 4.7"/23.6 oz) and improved performance.

Super Multi-Layer Coating on the lens reduces flare and ghosting, while the Inner Focusing system keeps the length of the lens unchanged when changing focus. The splash-proof design helps protect the 12-24mm lens from the elements. This versatile, sturdy lens will put drama into just about any subject you choose.

Equipped with HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) for quiet, high-speed focusing, it also offers Full Time Manual Focusing.

Designed for use with full frame digital cameras. May also be used with smaller APS-C size sensors with a corresponding effective increase in focal length to about 17-35mm with most cameras

    Even though there are a few flaws which I shall point out, I'm giving the Sigma 12-24 II 5 stars because it can produce some outstanding images. To me, great landscape shots (which is what this lens is all about) include details from both foreground and background, which only an ultra wide angle lens is capable to produce. The 12-24 II at 12mm wins the race in that respect. Secondly, the images need to be sharp corner to middle to corner, covering foreground and background. Again, the 12-24 II is the winner. I have tested it against the Tokina 16-28, the Canon 17-40, and the Samyang 14mm (easily worst of the bunch).
    To be fair, I didn't compare it with the Canon 14mm or 16-35mm, as those lenses were well beyond my budget. But my understanding is these are close to the 17-40mm, which the 12-24 II barely beat out in my testing.

    Now some flaws:
    The dang lens hood/cap keeps falling off! It's too loose!
    Switches from auto to manual focus constantly when the camera is attached with my black rapid strap.
    Some green flare artifacts show up when pointed near the sun.
    Barrel distortion is quite heavy when shooting buildings at the 12mm end.
    Not the smallest and lighest UWA lens around.

    Again, even with these flaws, I still give it 5 stars mainly because it is capable of producing some outstanding landscape images, better than most of it's competition.

    Love this lens

    By Kashi

    Comments about Sigma 12-24mm f/4.5-5.6 DG HSM II Lens (For Canon):

    Used this sigma 12-24 lens with my 5D mark3 without any problem, quality came out great.
    I used this for my landscape or interior application photos and I knew it's an f4.5 lens so using a tripod is necessary at low light space.
    Compare with canon 11-24 f4, this is much cheaper. I would recommend this.

        Comments about Sigma 12-24mm f/4.5-5.6 DG HSM II Lens (For Canon):

        When i bought the Sigma 12-24 i was not expecting a fast lens, but for the price tag i was expecting good optics that will provide consistent and sharp results. I am using the Sigma with my 7D mark II (it is not compatible with my full frame 5D Mark III) and the results i am getting are far from being what i would consider as sharp, far from it. I am now looking for a new wide lens because the Sigma is just a waste of time and money.

        Comments about Sigma 12-24mm f/4.5-5.6 DG HSM II Lens (For Canon):

        I have two of these 12-24 lenases; a 2004 version for Nikon and 2012 version for Canon. The earlier 12-24 was soft at the edges at wide apertures; but good at F8. Both are very good for archichitecture; interiors and landscapes
        The later 2011 version is significantly better wide open; but does require skill in use to get the best out of it. Its also well built and tough. I dropped mine on a shoot and although the metal hood bent there was no other damage.
        As a very critical professional user its been used a lot more than I would have expected. It outclasses my Canon 24-105L at 24mm and I would not be without it.
        The only downside to it is that is a slow lens; but for architecure and Landscape, a tripod and small aperture is reccomended for max depth of field.

          Meh. Not a great lens, not a bad lens.

            The Sigma 12-24mm is an ok lens, but that's about it. With a maximum aperture of f4.5-5.6, it's slow, and edge sharpness is not that good at times - you want to stop down a couple of stops.
            I shoot adventure and extreme sporting events, and need a superwide regularly. I bought this lens because the 12mm f2.8 I really wanted wasnt't available and I needed a superwide for a recent event. It did the job, but not as well as I was hoping for. Also, the zoom ring works opposite to every other zoom I have - not a good thing in a fast-paced event.
            "Meh" is about as enthusiastic as I can get about this one.

            Comments about Sigma 12-24mm f/4.5-5.6 DG HSM II Lens (For Canon):

            I use this lens for interior real estate photography on a full frame Canon 6D. I generally shoot at about 15mm FL and reserve shooting wider for extremely tight spots such as small bathrooms.

            Good Points: Very pleased with the sharpness and clarity of photos. Much better than any other UWA lenses I have had or currently own. Well-built.

            Bad Points: Very poor as far as vignetting is concerned. Light fall-off pretty much the entire zoom range is significant. Comparing it to my Tokina 17-35, there is no virtually no vignetting with the Tokina but obvious and significant vigetting with the Sigma 12-24 (both set to 17mm). However, the sharpness and clarity is so much better with the Sigma. So, I guess it is a tradeoff.

                Comments about Sigma 12-24mm f/4.5-5.6 DG HSM II Lens (For Canon):

                I shoot a lot of wide angle and do love certain Sigma glass.

                Not sure if I could give zero stars or would. This lens has no reason to exist, except as one of those mistakes one makes on the way to learning what could be.

                It is in every way inferior to the lower priced 8-16mm crop sensor lens. IN EVERY WAY INFERIOR.

                It weights more, costs more, and is not as clear/sharp/error free.

                The 8-16mm is a good lens, and performs better ON FULL FRAME, than does the 12-24... how is that possible? Cause the 12-24mm is just a plain and simple (tho expensive) miss.

                I've shot this lens along with the the 8-16 on a Nikon D800 full frame camera. The smaller 8-16mm had good image quality, the 12-24 had poor image quality.

                The effectively usable images were in all cases WORST with the 12-24. You can always do better with the 8-16. Get rid or and don't buy the 12-24.

                    I have been using this lens on my D700 for eighteen months now to shoot low light architectural interiors. The combination of the extreme wide angle & the exceptional low light capabilities of the camera have allowed me to capture images way beyond anything I could ever achieve before.
                    Yes I could dredge up a few minor complaints, but these are far outweighed
                    by the positive results & wonderful photographs.

                    I too was dubious about whether this lens would be sharp, and was pleasantly surprised to find it very sharp, certainly much more so than I was expecting. You can get shots with this lens you just cannot get with any other. Yes, it has the normal very wide angle distortion, but work with it and be aware of it and it is not a problem and use it creatively. My lens cap doesn't fall off though I would have preferred a positive catch to ensure it couldn't, and yes, filters would be nice - at least a gel filter holder at rear - and you do have to be careful. But there are filter holders and filters out there that can be used for very wide angles with no threads (Wonderpano?) if you really need that and are prepared to pay for it. It is also a bit slow, I guess. Overall, a super fun lens and great value.

                        Comments about Sigma 12-24mm f/4.5-5.6 DG HSM II Lens (For Canon):

                        I was a bit dubious as to whether this lens would satisfy me as far as image quality was concerned but it certainly does. Quite sharp edge to edge and no more distortion than is acceptable with lenses this wide. A little chromatic aberration was fixed with a single click in Lightroom 5. The aperture is a tad small but I can live with that for this quality at this price. Excellent value.My lens was the Canon fitting, for FF (5DIII).

                        * Great for when I want to take as much territory as possible in a single shot - especially when the conditions are not conducive to shooting a panoramic.

                        * Enables me to take unique photographs that are only possible with a lens of this ultra-width.

                        * Enables me to deliberately exaggerate or diminish the apparent size of specific subjects.

                        * Frequently provides me with a distinct advantage when I'm shooting in competitive situations.

                            Great lens, but there is some vignetting at about 12mm. Also there are no threads to add filters. The images are fantastic, though.

                            Landscape and archictectural images. Great at f8 and above.

                            The lens hood is designed to close tolerances (diameter wise) and is difficult to replace; I had already scratched the built-in hood. It must be exactly aligned. The worst is that even with such a tight fit, it will fall off the lens when walking with it in place. This hood is similar to the one in the 15 mm Sigma f 2.8 that has similar problem. Contacted Sigma that forwarded my feedback to Japan.

                            Another issue is that the zoom ring rotates in the opposite direction from those in Canon lenses and goes from 24 to 12 mm instead of the reverse of most lenses. It gets confusing.

                                Comments about Sigma 12-24mm f/4.5-5.6 DG HSM II Lens (For Canon):

                                I was leery about Sigma lenses as I have never really been happy with any that I have tried. Then again, I have been unhappy with a LOT of Canon lenses too. So, after trying many ultra-wides including the Canon 14mm prime and Canon 16-35 2.8L, I surprisingly found this lens to be the sharpest on my Canon 5D MIII. I am very picky about image quality, but know the limitations for ultra-wides so I have not felt the need to shoot brick walls or test patterns with this one. I have just shot real-world pictures and have been really happy with the results. Distortion at the far edges is easily fixed (PS Elements has the easiest ways to fix every kind of distortion - I like it better than LR, DXO and PT Lens). Yes, the Canon 14mm will have less distortion, but at almost 3x the price - plus no flexibility of having a range to choose from which is really important when shooting wide. Since you know the trade-offs for 12-14mm, you can save those for when the distortion works FOR you and use a little longer for the rest. Great to have flexibility.

                                Comments about Sigma 12-24mm f/4.5-5.6 DG HSM II Lens (For Canon):

                                I researched this lens quite a bit before making a purchase. So many, if not all of the reviews, stressed that quality control is an issue with this Sigma product and your results will depend upon the copy you receive. With this in mind I fully expected to have to send the lens back to Sigma for them to bring it up to specs.

                                When I first received the lens I immediately shot a side by side comparison with my Canon 16-35mm lens. To my surprise the Sigma matched the Canon at equal focal lengths for sharpness and contrast, in fact the Sigma exhibited better control over distortion and CA

                                That being satisfied I next used Focus Tune to calibrate the Sigma to my 5D3. I then compared the lens again to the 16-35 as well as to my crop camera (7D) and its two wide angle lenses - the Canon 10-22 and the Sigma 8-16. Again I was very pleasantly surprised that the Sigma 12-24 on my 5D3 held its own and matched if not slightly exceeded sharpness and contrast of all my other wide angle lenses - center to boarder edges. The one exception would be the Sigma 8-16 which narrowly was a bit sharper but we are talking about 5% (maybe) viewing at 200% magnification.

                                Needless to say I am very happy with my Sigma 12-24mm lens. Granted it is a specific purpose lens; the convex front lens does not allow filters but that is why I still plan on keeping/using my Canon 16-35. It is about the same size as my Canon 16-35 but that extra 4 mm to allow you to go wider is quite spectacular.

                                One point of advise, because of the convex properties of the front glass element, obviously be careful of dirt/scratches, etc. Also, when focusing, make use of your depth of field; focus shy of infinity so your lateral field of view will remain as sharp as possible.
