 Post subject: Sigma 20mm 1.8
PostPosted: Thu Mar 06, 2008 11:56 am 
....... anyone here have any experience with this glass...... I have done a forum search but no luck...... could also be me......

Reason...... I did a shoot in a meeting room, shooting people using available light, with my 30mm 1.4, 50mm 1.8 & Nikon 80-200 2.8. The shots are fine but I could have used a wider fast lens, as I found my 10-20mm Sigma a bit slow in comparison with my other lens.......

...... and from the few pixs I have seen, this looks like a fun lens...... also full frame....... should be nice and wide on a D3

Well, well, well...
If Klaus Schroiff's test here is any indicator, the IQ of this lens is nothing to rave about: High light fall-off wide open, high CAs and mediocre resolution :?

........ thanks for that report Thomas, interesting reading........

there seems to be about the same amount of good and bad reports re this lens....... I will get a copy to play with before I make a decision.......
