Hey guys, anyone out there own this lens? I can't really find any reviews on this lens except for one on FredMiranda. Can someone please let me know because I found one for sale locally and I know nothing about it.

IQ wise its meant to be better than the old version, but many people don't recommend it because it is quite a bit more expensive than the old version, and not that much better. One other "problem" with it is the 82mm filter thread. That makes for VERY expensive polarisers and other filters, which is a huge downside for any landscape photographer.

If you don't mind the 82mm thread however, and if the price is good used, then you might as well go for it. But I'd look hard for a 4.5-5.6 version first, or skip it and go for the canon if money is not an issue.

This. waaay to many strikes against it. Get the sigma 10-20 f/4-5.6, a great lens. if you need something faster, try the Tokina 11-16 f/2.8

I agree with this. I have the 10-20mm f4-5.6 and it's a nice lens!

Thanks for the response guys. I had a guy ask to trade my 17-50 Tamron 2.8 VC for the 10-20 Sigma....but he didn't tell me if it was the 3.5 or the 4-5.6.

What about the Canon 10-22? Is it better than the Sigma?

afaik, it's a sharper lens, almost no CA and less distortion compared to the sigma.

It's expensive thou...

I was told that there is Flare around lighting and fringing and vignetting too......you have any experience with that?

Flare resistance from the canon 10-22 is amongst the best I've seen on a lens.

It does get some CA, but no vignetting worth mentioning.

I've tried both the canon and the sigma 10-20, and I chose the canon because it was better at pretty much everything and I didn't mind paying the price for it, though I got mine for $680 new so it wasn't much more.
