I am literally checking everyday for reviews and sample photos from this lens. I have been waiting for a lens just like this for wedding photography and never wanted the 16-35mm as I didn't want the overlap from 24-35.

Please please please lets share some photos from this lens! :)

I'm interested in this lens,also.
I'm surprised by the lack of sample images anywhere,to help me make the decision.
Can't even find any on Flickr...:(

This lens was a demo model of sigma.
This lens has a very good build quality, similar to other art styles, maybe even better.
She's pretty sharp all over the image, I see little difference in sharpness between center and edge image.
I did a little comparison between this lens and the Canon 24-70 2.8L II. at 24mm.
The canon is sharper everywhere, from the center to the edge, even at f8.
I think this is not a disaster because I suspect that the canon variant, the 11-24, can't also stand the comparison at 24mm with the 24-70 2.8LII.
This lens seems a good connection on my 24-70, and mainly because of the price.
Here in Belgium, the price of the sigma is € 1,749, whereas' the canon 11-24 still costs € 3,000.
I'm going first read some reviews ...... but this lens is already in stock here.:!:
The images above are raw images without any post processing.
At this site http://www.lenstip.com​/ (external link) is already a review .

I rented the 12-24 ART to play with for a week to try it out before the wife and I take a trip to Italy in June. Unfortunately, the whole week I have it, the weather is poo. So, just so to add some photos here, I'm tossing a couple up. Unfortunately, everything was grey and crappy outside. I really wasn't wowed by the lens, and indoors it was borderline disappointing. I remember on my 7D when I had the 8-16, I was absolutely blown away by the contrast and colors. Not so much with the 12-24.

I am seeing some really good shots in the 12-24 ART Flickr group, so that's promising, but for my Italy trip, since I'm looking at just renting, I'll probably get the Canon 11-24.

Also, don't know why EXIF is showing as Canon 17-40..... but that's wrong.

I'm getting one tonight. Gonna trade 3 other wide lenses for it. I'm pretty psyched. However, the weather here has been terrible, and will probably stay that way for a while, so not sure when I will get any worthwhile pix... Still, stay tuned:-) I'll get something up.
