Is there anyone currently using new Sigma 10-20mm f/3.5 lens?

I know it's new and just came out, so just wondering how much you like it.

Anyway, Im looking for wide angle lens. Body is D90.

1) Tokina 11-16mm
2) Nikon 10-24mm
3) new Sigma 10-20mm f/3.5

Most people recommend me Tokina 11-16mm, but most old Sigma 10-20mm

users love the lens. So, I think upgraded 10-20mm sould be great!

But, I also like the angle, nikon 10-24mm, but it's pretty expensive.

So, just wondering if you were me, which one would you buy?

Thanks.

I'd suggest considering the Tamron SP 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 as THE cost-effective alternative.

I use it for primarily at 10-11mm for interior real estate photos.
Mine replaced the Nikkor 12-24mm for this purpose - using a bounced SB800.
The corner sharpness at 10mm, f/8 is terrific on a D300 at those settings.

Everyone's mileage varies, of course.

i have the tokina on a d90 body, and its really fun lens to have albeit a short range. if you can live with that, its also fun to have the constant 2.8 to shoot in lower light. build quality is very nice too.

Interesting and noted comment, Lowell.
Even in those situations, I prefer to use fill flash at smaller apertures to highlight the subject and get extended DOF to define the location - it's one of the +++ of the Nikon CLS speedlights.

Indeed, our mileage DOES vary!
