    :) Visiting Yellowstone in September.

    Was thinking about an extension in the wide angle area.
    Currently my 18-700 mm kit lens has the widest angle option.

    Considerring Sigma 10-20 versus Tokina 12-24

    The Tokina is well discussed in this forum.
    Any experience on the Sigma ?
    Is Nikon Capture CA correction able to correct for these lenses ?

    Input appreciated

    There are a number of posts in DPReview. One that I found very interesting is:

    I have been looking for both a WA and a telephoto to complement my kit lens. I tried the Sigma out and it feels well built, with excellent quality. I am going back today with a CF card and my camera to take some photos.

    Hopefully all will be positive.

    Will try Rocha. Looks like this lens is in very short supply in the GTA. I'm going to check tomorrow if the copy I saw is still in stock.

    Cheers,

    The Sigma 10-20 is in stock at my supplier 500 Euros (The Netherlands).But he does not stock Tokina, so no change of comparison.....
