The 12-24 is probably my favorite lens to play with...

Is this the latest version of the lens, Sigma 12-24mm f/4.5-5.6 AF II DG HSM?

I took the lens out yesterday to see how well flare was controlled and how it handled color/contrast rendition in direct(harsh) sunlight....


Here, the sun is just out of frame in the top right...

and here, the sun is front and center.

I was amazed at how well the lens handles flare, and how much detail it manages to pull, even in direct sunlight. The bottom shot is at f/8 with no lens corrections applied in post, and the top shot is wide open at 12mm with lens correction applied. One thing I've noticed is that with lens correction applied in Lightroom, the entire frame tends to end up at about +1 EV compared to not having the lens correction applied. I think perhaps the lens correction is a bit overdone in trying to remove vignetting.

I have the version 2 (there's no thread for it that I can find), it's a really fun lens, if there is one lens that I think takes some time to get to know, for me, it's this one. Can't just shoot it like most my other lenses. It handles direct sunlight really well, but lights to the sides of the lens will introduce flare....It's pretty darn sharp for an ultrawide, but sharp really isn't what this lens is about. I saw a video (HERE) (external link) from Ben Jacobsen (jacobsen1) on you tube showing how to rig this lens for filters and I'm for sure gonna give it a go (Thanks Ben, you're a real inspiration)......I have really fallen for this lens, it's like having a smart girlfriend.....I really have to think about what I'm doing before I do it.....Here's a few all on my 5DmkII...

Still works for portraits - wish it were sharper etc but it's very good though and great fun. A couple from the last few weeks:
