I was just looking on the lens sample images archive thread (that's a mouthful/fingerful!) and noticed the Sigma 12~24mm wasn't on the list. I figured I'd start a thread with some samples of what I've done with it.

I have some reviews up on my Pbase account, you can find this lenses review here:

all the reviews are linked in my signature.

on to some test shots:
on my old 10D:

Excellent Idea, can't wait to see more pics.

Post #2, Apr 02, 2007 16:54:21


Canon 350/xt ,50mm 1.8, Sigma 17-70mm, Sigma 70-300mm DG Macro, Sigma Super Flash Canon Backpack, Ebay tubes (awesome), Cheap tripod and a Sony DSC-S40 and a lot of hope and dreams of more gear.

And in 3 Months either a Canon 70-200 f/4 or a 70-300 IS still debating.

Does the Sigma 12-24 work on FF? I mean I expect rediculous vignetting wide open but zoomed to say 16-20?

yep. I know seeing as much info, first hand experience, and test shots as you can always helps. The other thing I'd love to see, is this lens compared on 3 different sensor sizes. I might be getting a XTi here soon, and if so I'll also post up some shots with that combination. I know of some guys using this on 5Ds too, so it gets really wide there...

I've realized the more I look at my shots with this lens, I tend to use it at 12mm more than all other FLs combined... Interesting.

The other test I'd love to see, is this on a 1.3 cropped sensor, versus a 10~22 on a 1.6 and then toss in a 17~40mm or 16~35mm on a FF body just to see how they all compare.... Obviously different resolutions will effect the outcome a bit, but if you "water" them all down to say 8mp (or whatever the lowest of the bunch was) and compare them, I'd be very curious to see how they stack up. I like the idea of a super lightweight travel setup with a XT/XTi with the 10~22....

From what I've seen it "works" fine on a FF and only has slight vinetting. I loaned mine to a friend with a 5D for like 10 minutes and that was enough for him to go buy one.

PLEASE get your friend to post some FF shots at 12mm. We are all dying to see I think.

Yes. And moderate vignetting wide open ... not the kind you get from a lens not intended to cover a full frame. Both of the following were taken on a 1Ds :-

Just to point out the weak point in my equipment list is the stuff behind the camera :)

Wow that isnt too bad at all. Heck my 10-22 does that sometimes when I put a filter on it and I don't mind because it takes very little time to correct it when shooting with RAW. NICE when I go FF someday I am buying this lens. Amazing stuff.

Wow, 12 on a 5d is definately wider than 10 on a crop.

Considerably. 16mm of FL compared to 12 on the wide end is huge.

I'm sold on this lens completely now. Especially since it's the only true UWA lens for 1.3 crop.

Alot of great examples, much wider than the kit lense, I've decided that after seeing this... I need a wider lens!

Yeah, that's why I got it originally is I knew I'd go FF eventually, but had a 1.3 so it was the only way to get to ~16mm there...

I'm keeping this, but I think I also want the 17~40L for filter use and so I don't get too dependant on the whole 12mm super wide angle (seems when I use this lens 99% of the shots are at 12mm....)
