have a check here for reviews ,
i have just bought a Tokina AT-X 116 PRO DX-II 11-16 F/2.8 lens.:BigGrin: on reviews from there
sigma 10-20 for sale here with a few photos
On what body?
www.dpreview.com is always worth a look for camera & lens reviews.
Crop or full frame?
I had one for my nikon 7000 it was super sharp....and fun.......for the first two weeks.....then the novelty wore off and I went back to more flexible lenses and sold it.
As above, got one for my D300, a few weeks later it was up for sale, there are only so many fisheye shots you can take.. ended up buying a Tamron 90mm makro lens. That was a keeper
I've. Got one which I use on an eoS 60d.
I have no issues or problems with it at all. I don't use it a lot Because It has quite limited application. Inside of churches, wide landscape shots etc. a lot of weight to carry around all the time for the few situations you want it.
HOWEVER when those situations do arise you are SO glad you carried it.
Don't think about using it with flash! Even with a diffuser you just end up with a bright spot in the middle of the shot.
I found the 10-20 quite nice but as one of the other guys said the novelty went very quickly. The one I use the most is a 50 fixed fast lens but obviously that's no where near as wide.
I read somewhere, probably at www.talkphotography.co.uk, that the lens isn't a good choice if you have a full frame camera.
If it's fisheye effects you're after you could consider a .45 wide angle converter added to the front of an existing lens. I did this with my Fuji S9600 and was very happy with the outcome, although there was some vignetting and the autofocus didn't work with it. The main advantage was the converter cost me less than £30, so it's no huge loss if you don't take to fisheye photography.
Personally speaking, it's the gadget I miss the most since switching to a Canon DSLR, as I can't yet afford a very wide angle lens.
A great little lens :thumb:
