Sigma 12-24mm reference image thread - post yours here

Discussion in 'Lens Lust' started by LSUDVM, Aug 4, 2009.

  1. In response to bourboncowboy's request, I am starting a thread for reference images for the Sigma 12-24mm f4.5-5.6. A little about my lens.
    I bought my copy used from KEH in EXC condition for $546 before shipping. I had been watching KEH for a couple of weeks hoping one would appear. This price was less than Ebay prices and was significantly cheaper than what the lens costs new these days. Current new price is $859. Also it is the only one i have tried. I didnt have to take part in the Sigma lottery. I have used this lens on both my d3 and my d300 and have been very happy with the quality on both. It is a slow lens so if indoors is your thing, then it may not be the best option. I am posting 5 images below. If you have this lens please post some of your images in this thread.


    2) This was in Central Park

    3) LIRR station in Amityville


  2. I am an early adopter of this lens, buying on a trip to Taiwan in 2004. Here are some at various focal lengths. One of the few lenses you'll find that gets better the more it's stopped down and I never see any diffraction. A truely unique design.
