I bought Sigma 10-20mm couple weeks ago and so far I love it. I know people have been saying that some copies are kind of soft at the right side, but I've been checking mine since I've got it and so far it seems like I got a really sharp copy. Just wanted to share for those who are looking for a UWA lens, this is a really good lens for its price.
Here's a sample shot I did.

ISO 100, 1/250, f/5.6, @20mm

And second Image is 100%, Shot in RAW, and nothing was done to the picture, uploaded as shot.

Turbo.
Is this the original Sigma 10-22 or the new Sigma 10-20 f/3.5?
Looks like you got yourself a really nice lens.

This is the original Sigma, not the f/3.5 because I didn't think it was worth extra...
And plus I got this one brand new for a very good price, and couldn't be happier :)

Here are some other shots:

Amazingly sharp, love the composition and colors!

I considered getting this lens as well... I might have to reconsider??

Well I wanted to get Canon 10-22mm and reconsidered, I didn't think it was worth extra $200 because I bought my Sigma 10-20 brand new for a very good price, and couldn't be happier :)

Nice pix.

I've been using a Sigma 10-20 for the last 2+ years and have found it to be a fantastic performer. Honestly, it is as sharp as my various L glass (except maybe the 70-200 f4L IS) and the color and contrast are good. It has also proven to be a durable, reliable piece of kit.

The new constant aperture version would be nice, but is a lot more $$$ and has an 82mm filter... I'll stay with my original version. It has a home as long as I keep an APS-C body around.

NICE. I am looking at this or the Canon 10-22. You make a compelling case for the Sigma :)

What he didn't mention is that the Sigma comes with a 4 year US warranty (compared to Canon's 1 year), a nice Cordura carry case (Canon gives you a box...) and a lens hood (Canon stiffs you big time on the add on hood). The Sigma also sports a nicer build than the Canon 10-22 and is cheaper. ;)

Yep forgot to mention that, lol thank. And about the build quality it is very nice, I like it and it feels like it has metal body, while after playing with canon 10-22 it feels soo cheap and so plastic....
